New forum

Postby wjfox2009 on Tue May 03, 2011 11:00 am

I'm in discussions with a webmaster about moving to a new forum. We are probably going with . The switch will hopefully happen in the next week or two. Unfortunately this will mean you'll need to re-register, and we can't transfer old threads/posts from this forum. But the new features etc. will be much better, we'll have a new layout with new sections, and uptime should be greatly improved.

Don't worry, I'll keep this forum open here at Forums-Free. There'll be a link to it from the new forum.

On the new forum you should include a suggestion section or rename the brainstorm section to suggestions.

2 new sectional alternative

Brainstorm = think/process ideas about the future

Suggestions= ideas/articles to add to the timeline or improve/change the timeline

We should definately have a history form for history discussion, I can already think of a few tings i want to discuss. We can also show off local history or national history. or personal history if you want =D

---

The new forum will likely provide a better experience than this forums-free one. A better experience would mean we would maintain more users. More users equal more activity and more discussion. I actually hate this forums-free thing. (its slow as a brick among other issues) Its certainly a turnoff and I probably don't post on it as much as i would with another forum engine. Invision forums are way better. ^^

Here's a sneak preview of the new forum -



That's not the finished design, and it's obviously on a different server right now - but we're hoping to transfer it over to futuretimeline.net within the next couple of days.

I'm still deciding whether to add a Past/History subforum...
