We are planning to move this forum into a 'new house' - a fully functional, a real forum including these features:
- Gallery for members
- Avatars / Signature (express your self thingy)
- More secured and more stable database system
- More information to share with your fellows: install messenger IDs, Private Messaging system, flash / image / music embedding feature,...
- Events / Birthday / Bike release date calendar
- More smilies
- A better Search system
- Choices of low-fi (mostly text) and hi-fi (fully featured) versions of the forums / different forum skins for you to choose.
- Ranking, user groups, moderators/admins system - so you can really manage the community yourself.
- A "What you see is what you get - WYSIWYG" typing/reply system.
- Better anti spam options.
- And a lot more potential features that can be easily installed - I don't have enough space to list them all here. [
-- possible negative point --
We are not sure that we can transfer all the data that we've got here on this forum to the new one.
Meaning you probably
will be asked to re-register in the new forum, a brand new start! If that is the case then we will retain this forum as an archive and there will be a link in the new forum so you can go back anytime.
I'm trying to convert the old data at the moment but it seems quite hard.
FYI, the new forum we want to install is Simple Machine Forums
Since you - the members of this community - are the main users of the forum, we want to listen to your ideas. Please let us know what you think?
