May be changing forums soon

Post by SaMmM on Fri Apr 17, 2009 5:44 am

This forum is horrible.

I have been asking and seeking help from the admins and technician of forumotion and they just dont give a shit.

And this forum lacks the ability to make backups of this forum.
I cant access the shitty backup tool of this forum. And the forumotion admins dont care.
If this forum gets hacked, its 100% gone.

Retarded reputation system.

Cannot export forum user database.
Means that if i start a new forum, all users need to register again.
And all topics are GONE.

You may suggest in this topic what forum to change to.
However do not request to be an admin.

Here are my picks

First choice: vBulletin ($)
Second choice: phpBB (free)

Hosting a site on your own can have some fees if you choose to go on your own. There is a lot of work modifying a forum and maintaining a community though..

Also I'm not a big fan of invision power board (modding/skinning community wasn't as good as vb or phpbb) but it's up to you..

I DO NOT suggest hosting your own forums. Routine backups and maintenance are extremely time consuming.

The issue with most free forum providers (IPBfree, phpBB) is that you will not have the ability for a db dump later on.

The new Sheep Tag website designer has excellent knowledge of web stuff. I will ask him his suggestion.

Also, we have our own web server and can get domains easily. If you want domains and web server, I may be able to get your forums in. I will have to see.

These are the forums for the new Sheep Tag website:

SaMmM, put a poll. We'll decide through voting. I would suggest that the moderators do not vote so it would be purely member's decision(Which would make things more fair).

There's a Humor section in the profile. That section itself deserves a laugh...

EDIT: I'll suggest Invision Boards I guess. You can register a ***.ipbfree.com, and then make it a DotTK domain.

FYI, you can also make a DotTK email, as in when someone send a email to VSF@vampirism.tk, it gets forwarded to your regular email. I thought that function was pretty cool

GosuSheep.

How much data-transfer bandwidth does http://www.chatcraft.net/forum uses per month?

I installed SMF on my free webhost account.
http://vsportal.comuv.com/

Its currently limited to 100gb data-transfer bandwidth.
I don't know if its sufficient.
So we're not moving yet.
However, i'm guessing we'll only be using up to 10gb...

This forum ate my post Neutral

I don't think you will reach 10gb unless you are hosting all of the downloads and allowing big attachments on your forum. Discussion forums are not data intensive at all, and if you don't have attachments I don't think you will go over 5gb a month (unless there is a user base boom). You would want to be worried about the bandwidth cap if you intend to use your account to host a direct download/video streaming site, but it doesn't seem like that's your plan.
