Please don't panic; we'll be moving

Postby Rigorous Intuition » Fri Nov 03, 2006 11:30 am

If the board looks strange, it's because I let the ezboard payment lapse. I'll be migrating the board <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.rigorousintuition.ca/board/">over here</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->, hopefully within a week. <p></p><i></i>

Can't happen quick enough...ezboard now bombards us with pop-ups that even Mozilla can't kill. <p></p><i></i>

Also, please don't register over there, or post before we convert. All the membership data here should be transfered, though I think you'll need to select a new password. <p></p><i></i>

Don't worry about it, sunny. I just wanted to let people know it's unneccessary. <p></p><i></i>

Still copying the archives. It's slow going, but it's going.<br><br>Probably be a few days before we're ready to officially make the jump. In the meantime, apologies for the ads. <p></p><i></i>

I agree that phpBB/wordpress(or other opensource) operated on your own domain is a better combo than blogspot/ezboard.<br><br>However phpBB isn't very good software, and it tends to get hacked and get a lot of spam bots. The search function is also primitive. <br><br>I know the selling point is that it's free. But I think if you asked for donations specifically for getting good forum software, I think people would step up. (Especially because it's the forum we'll be using... if I can help significantly upgrade one of my favorite forums for only $10 because the cost is spread out, you bet I'll do it.)<br><br>And it's not that much. For lifetime licenses:<br><br>vBulletin: $160<br>Invision: $180<br><br>That's only about 20 folks contributing $10 each.<br><br>Invision (maybe vBulletin too, not sure) has an optional module available to integrate a blog into your forum, so you control everything from one interface, instead of a separate one each for phpBB and Wordpress (or whatever). <br><br>(Invision also has a photo gallery module so you could show off all your blog artwork in one place... or countless other possibilities.) <br><br>I'm just throwing it out there. In fact since it's so easy to upgrade from phpBB to these other systems, it's something you could just keep in mind for the future, or just wait until the earmarked donations are enough to cover the cost.<br><br>I used phpBB for a long time, and I just upgraded to Invision and I had no idea what I was missing. If the control panel of phpBB is like a car dashboard, the control panel of Invision is like the cockpit of a B-52. It's pretty sweet, I'd never go back. <p></p><i></i>

Jeff - a question/plea/suggestion - I followed the link at "Moving Day" to RI's soon to be new home. To see the entire image there, it was necessary to scroll on the horizontal.<br><br>My computer prowess is sub-par, so maybe it's just me, but when text is within a page formatted like that I can't properly print the text. It runs out of the margins and nothing I know of can correct that problem.<br><br>I print all of your blog posts, much of the ensuing commentary, and quite a bit of the board as well. I'm probably not the only person who cares about being able to do that.<br><br>Is printability something with which you're concerned as you set up the new place? <p></p><i></i>

As Satan once said, "Allow me to sweeten the deal".<br><br>I'll up my offer and make my contribution $79.99, half of the full price for a vBulletin Owner's License. I wouldn't want anyone to thing I was trying to hold a majoroity of RI's stock, so if Jeff can cough up $81.01 he stays HNIC.<br><br>Which is exactly the way it's suppossed to be, cause he's the Big Dog.<br><br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/images/smiles/icon_band2.gif" style="border:0;"/><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--> <p>____________________<br>Wehret den Anfängen</p><i></i>
