Post subject:  Upgrade to phpBB3

We are very pleased to announce that the Homestar Runner Wiki Forum has recently upgraded to phpBB3!

There will be a period of adjustment as we all get used to it. Not all of the style features have been implemented, and some of them might change. So, if you hate the style or if something doesn't quite work right, don't panic. (If you love the style, we'd like to know that too.) If you have a technical problem or a suggestion, say so here. This thread will probably fill up pretty quickly, so put "Technical problem" or "Suggestion" in bold at the beginning of your post, but do not yell and do not be inconsiderate.

I hope the transition goes smoothly for all. Thanks for your patience and cooperation as we work out the kinks.

It's going to take some time getting used to.

By the way, for those who didn't know, the old design's font was Trebuchet MS. Yay.

EDIT: I think I'm annoyed already. The forum gives you a notice whenever a post has been made during the time you've taken to type a post when you press "submit." Urgh.

I think in time, you'll come to appreciate that. Especially when it's a busier thread. Has the possibility to make you look less stupid.

I call that feature "anti-moron" - it prevents you from looking stupid and missing previous replies.

In that case I choose to remain American moronic in lieu of intelligent and having to see that post whenever posting in a popular topic.

...

In lieu of intelligent?

Anyway, it looks great. I'd hit it.

Suggestion
Can the quote button go on the top of posts?
If so, that should happen.

Also, we asked for user titles and new emotes. Could we have some of those? D:

Toastpaint.

Which reminds me, IJ's scriptmonkey modification no longer works.

Tech problem
Don't know if this is something somebody's already posted, but I hit back after clicking on this thread and all of the other topics in this subforum were automatically read.

User titles is cool with me.

Second'd. I've arleady messed that up two or three times. But if it's not possible, I guess it won't be too hard to adjust.
And yes, user titles would be nice.

...spam?

Also, user titles are pretty easy to do. I remember how easy it was on SI.

SUGGESTION

Custom User Titles, several more features when it comes to wording, such as scrolling text/images/etc.

Also, MUSIC PLAYER PLZ. We could fill it with Frampton Comes Alive.

Post subject:  Re: Upgrade to phpBB3

Hmm...several things:
  • Like I previously said, this Forum looks really slick now. It's really easy to get used to.
  • Was it true that the previous version of the Forum had a 100,000 character-limit? If so, why did it drop down to 60,000?
  • Are there any plans to add new features, like custom Titles for users? Now that we can tell who the admins and mods are by the color of their names within posts, it seems like having titles wouldn't make it too hard to distinguish between admins, mods, and regular users.
  • Are any emoticons going to be added/changed around? The Stinkoman one under "View More Smilies" would fit perfectly with the other members of the Homestar cast.
  • Is anything else planning on being changed? For instance, will there be any new MODs?

Hey, guys, "strikeout" BBCode that was written before the forum upgraded doesn't work no more.

As you all now know, phpBB3 is wicked sexy.



Unfortunately this is probably the disadvantage to having no Jello B. He worked some serious magic with the Serious Inc transition and made the styles look beautiful. Oh well I'm sure we'll figure it out.

This is why we shouldn't have banned his second coming.
