Do you like the new board?

Post by Deques » Tue Mar 09, 2010 3:49 am

:heart:

The reason why I installed a new board is that the developers behind the old one seems to have stopped developing it. And no development means malicious code to be inserted in one way or another. And also I have noticed that the board got new members registered, way too many. Those are just spam members.

Since the upgrade I have deleted all zero posters. There were almost 200 of them

PunBB always suffered from new user spam. I don't think they have any type of CAPTCHA/other validation which is really sad. PunBB out of the box is pretty bad but with some heavy modifications can be manageable. I knew Rickard was lazy when it took him 3 years to get 1.3 out. I like PunBB a lot because it's lightweight and easy to use. I would switch too if it was for security.

There are CAPTCHA plug-ins for it that I've used elsewhere that handled at least 95% of attempted spammers.

The frontend of this board really isn't too different from the old one. I'd imagine when you're done getting it set up they'll be indistinguishable aside from some small extra features. I really see nothing to complain about so I'll give you a yes vote. :heart:

I'm not going to vote on this yet.

I like all the features that this one seems to have out of the box, but I think our old board pretty much had everything set up how we needed it.

Well, comrade generals, I think since new things require time for us to adapt, I think this one is fine.
I have tested this site with mobile network, a bit slower but has steadier data transfer than before.

thumbs up and voted "yes"

So far the forum just looks boring and there isn't a thing for the minicity thing, anymore.

Also why are some of the rabites red?

They're Bloody Rabites, they were hidden in single frames of Mana games by Jhonen Vasquez.

Voted yes on the poll. New forum looking spunky.

It's okay. This one seems kind of like a husk of the old forum. It doesn't feel as cozy anymore.

Maybe if we just had that Seikens Dark skin back... I loved that.

I completely forgot I made the dark skin, that one was pretty cool.

Yeah, but maybe we should focus on this skin first :P then we can try others... like darker ones =*)
