Re: Changes

I think that suggested change to Discourse will not dilute interactions because it still contains the same structure as the current forum, namely Categories http://bbs.boingboing.net/categories just one click away from the index page. If that is the case, I'm not too worried. I mean, don't we alrea...

Re: Changes

"dubstep" is good enough at this point IMO It may not be a trendy name, but I think it works better than any other as a by-association name of the UK type of music, or music the UK club underground likes, like Footwork etc. To illustrate, my local record shop is historically techno-oriented, run by...

Re: Changes

so everyone can login in the hideout with their Facebook account? :? it's not that anyone with facebook account will automatically see posts in hideout. they would still need to go through registration process, same as now. it would just be just a bit quicker to register if someone already owns a f...

Re: Changes

I do agree that OVER segmentation has been a big problem. I really encountered it in the production forum. It got so segmented that there was nothing left. There is one new thread a week over there in production, it is a joke. But, I also don't think we need to go to a totally flat system either. T...

suggested change (migration to Discourse) would look completely different from "new layout", as you can see here: http://bbs.boingboing.net/ http://bbs.boingboing.net/ http://discuss.howtogeek.com/

Re: Changes

Re: Changes

I like they layout as is, lets not be reinventing the wheel eh? I agree i like the layout the way it is. The only thing I can think of is that the 'Dubs & Tunes for Feedback' doesn't get enough footfall. Bare tunes in there free DL not even 1% of the forum know about tbf. well, thats exactly the co...

Re: Changes

Have to say though: IMHO a big part of the stuff making people bellyache has less to do with the systems used than the components of that system, i.e. the users. There's no doubt the demographic has skewed younger and younger over the last 8 years and the rise in pedantic bad apples is a corollary....

Re: Changes

I like they layout as is, lets not be reinventing the wheel eh? the suggested change of forum software is not about changing the layout at all. actually we've just spent a lot of energy on changing current forum layout (phpBB), which will become useless if we choose to migrate to Discourse. It's wh...

I have read a discussion about how DSF is broken https://www.dubstepforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=282685&start=100 and I agree with most comments you made and that there is a need for a change.

this is first time ever that we are running forum over HTTPS (which means that all your private data is encrypted) but there might me some technical issues with browsers treating external linked HTTP content like videos and images as unsecured (compared to forum itsefl which is now on httpS)
