  Jason! you should get a forum that will make the most recent posted thing jump up to the top of the forum! that way we can see if someone has posted, and good heated discussions won't be lost do to it filing deep into the archives.
for instance, at www.durismud.com the forums there are pretty sweet and they are highly customizable, even by the users. I am not saying these forums are inadaquate or anything, as i do like them, but i think it would be a great improvement to get something like that. anyway just something you might look into. :D

oh btw duris is a great game if you ever wanted to play a text based game of old :P

What he said. I have change issues...if you were to change even the background color i'd probably freak out.

  GT is verrry cool. But it's a little hard to navigate around. phpBB forums are awfully easy to use and extremely navigable. It could look a lot like it does now, but be easier to use... : )

Just a suggestion... I'll be happy even if nothing changes.


 
Iamjustdancing. Posted: Fri Feb 27 10:56:46 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  yes...the color thing... ppl could actually make color schemes for themselves and submit it to the webmaster so everyone can use etc. you can even put pictures and stuff... ppl could moderate different forums other than Jason, making it easier for him to manage other parts of the website. Also you can do polls and stuff on the phpbb and send private messages. shrug i just have used that one a ton and thought you guys might like it ;P

thanks for actually responding to my idle chatter :D

  Isn't that what the 'Newest postings' thing is for, and for that matter just go to search and search for the thread you are looking, the reason old but seemingly popular threads die is because the arguments end up being all swings and roundabouts anyway.

Besides I'm too old to start learning new Forums now, it's taken me this long to get to grips with this one. Any change will be met immediate movement of all resistance units under my command!


Viva la non revolution!!!

Better yet, jason could just make a special forum for old farts like you! All the old plonkers (over 25) would have to go there and talk about WWII and shit! Drink your hot cocoa and go to bed ol man!

The new postings things only work for new postings. doesn't work for reply's. I am just saying i bet people would like it just the same or better than what we have now. Man, and all of you 'progressive' ppl out there who are afraid of change? kinda funny if you ask me.

dude,you can edit your profile to show as many new post and threads as you want to see.
And it does work for replies.
Now leave it alone before we find out where you live and make you drink

  Wow! So many people, so afraid of change. And nothing's REALLY going to be changing anyway. Have any of you ever used a phpBB forum? Try it. You'll see what Dave's talking about.

Stuff gets buried so easily here. I mean, disappear for like 3 days, come back and all the old threads are hidden. You have to search for specific stuff if you want to. Makes you miss so much.

Same people. Same sort of forum. Just easier to navigate around. What are you so afraid of?

This is why I don't want to get MSN. I've had ICQ since before I knew what "ROTFLMAO" meant. Grrr change. *Shuns*

But I don't think I'd mind if JQ made of few changes... then again I wouldn't mind if he didn't, either.

As long as he doesn't mess with the background color! I'd break down.

Somebody was talking about moderators.

The complete lack of them is probably one of the many things that make this forum what it is right now.

  Yeah, I don't like the moderator idea.

And I really don't like phpBB. Sure, it's a nice forum, but I like GT because it's unique. Anybody can (and does) download phpBB and put it on their website, but GT is (Maybe if JQ could tweak it a bit to put most active up along with newest, it'll be nice. But I think it's fine the way it is. Gives us class. :)

we like this place as it is. other forums can be easier to navigate, but we like it as it is.

if other forums are better, pack ur shit and get over there.

i know other forums may be fancier. i visit them too. but this is just fine.


 
iggy Posted: Fri Feb 27 19:41:01 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  oh yeah.
is it me or are the people making noise the new ones?

i don't really want moderators in here.

anyone can come in here without the risk of being banned or have our posts deleted and checked.

GT is simple. point, click and post away. simple?

want to back track. do a little work and just scroll though them.

  OK, the general consensus (with Libra's vote taking up 95%) is or the forum to remain, so it shall. I do expect to make some minor changes/improvements when I get the time, but I promise nothing major.

As for moderators, well, I am not prepared to relinquish that absolute power any time soon, even though, if any of you have noticed, I have never had the chance to use it as you are such great people. :)

GT is GT if it were to be altered it would b GT V1.1, i fear that decimal, damn U dave!! Damn you straight to hell!!
whilst phpBB sound efficient you can shove it up your arse, if u want a phpBB forum, find one, don't suggest a raping of a good javascript/html one like this.

Picture an entire country that believes that same sex marriages should not happen. And there's a minority screaming for change. Why should the rest of the country give in? They feel exactly how all of you felt about the forum issue, but to them it's much more than a forum at stake.

Weeeeellllll your majesty i apologise that this humble forum isn't to your liking. As for the same sex marriage analogy wouldn't it be more accurate to say everybody was fine with the current system but a few people were whining for change saying

"wah wah wah i want a special board, where's my special board wah wah wah," and everybody else said

"no remain the same as us, you can use the board just as well as we can and you don't need anything different BECAUSE YOUR NOT BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM."
