Introduction and New Server for Forums!

Recommended Posts

Got that fixed up. This forum software was written back in 2006, so the bulk of it is very difficult to wade through. It wasn't great when it was written, but by today's standards it's atrocious.

 

Glad you fixed it.  And I hear you on wading through 10 year old code.  Hell, some of my code from only three years ago I take a look at and go "thank god there aren't bugs in there, because fixing them will require a total rewrite."

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

The load time on server has been reduced from 0.280ms average (with several second spikes) to an average of 0.03ms. So hopefully that's noticeable and helpful to you guys.

This with the load time is really the best change. The first thing I noticed, the second thing were the changes made to the theme.

 

If the forum software was written in 2006 and if it is so bad, why not changing to a more modern one and a good one? Wouldn't that help alot?

Once the transfer is fully done and everything is stable. The plan is to re-evaluate all of the systems we use and look into better solutions. But the important part is to make sure everything is stable/cleaned up so we can get a full lay of the land.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

This. The reality is, the more I can clean it up and smooth things out now, the easier it will be if and when we decide to migrate to something else. I'm just the guy cranking the cogs right now, so I don't want to speak out of place.

 

I echo Lex, I want it to be clean, stable, and secure for you guys. I'll keep doing my best to make sure that's how it goes :D

Ah, ok.

 

Oh and I've found a bug: Sometimes the forum renders Java code without the code formattings and you have to re-load the complete site to fix it. ;)

But besides that, it runs very stable. :)

 

Besides that, if you guys want to make the forum look even more modern at some point, like when migrating to a new software, I've got some insperation for you:

http://forums.marvelheroes.com/

 

And I personally prefer this style best: https://forums.oculus.com/community/

Even when I don't like the huge letters in the posts....

Oh and I've found this site, seems to be that there is stuff with which a forum can be created: https://vanillaforums.com/

 

Just a question: Hows the progress?
