Ti-Freakware has a new forum!
« on: March 28, 2011, 11:36:03 am »
Tifreak has made a new Ti-Freakware forum. The old one was getting quite inactive, so I guess he wants now many people to join. I have already.
You can visit it here: http://www.tifreakware.net/forum

I checked it out and re-registered. Hopefully all the old posts from the previous board can be integrated. :)

I saw that the old forums still exist, but I don't know if tifreak is going to do that.

Hey thanks stefan, I was hesitant to make such a topic/post because I don't want it to seem like I am trying to steal people away from any sites.

As to the old posts, I might see about doing -something-, but for the most part, I would like a fresh start.

@Tifreak: Ah ok. No reason to be shy posting about it though. :) I think it's news-worthy actually. :D

Hopefully you can bring back the old posts, but I think the inactive projects should all be moved to other projects or something. The issue is that if a small board has like 30 sub-forums, it looks emptier than if it has 10, because all posts are more spread accross the board, so instead of 100 posts per section you end up having 33. Later when a lot of discussion occurs in a specific area then you can add more sections I guess, same if people requests a new board.

I don't know if I'll be active much on the calc side but I'll try to show up during my weekly visit on other boards. Also, I like the forum theme. Is it a custom theme you found somewhere or one you made yourself? I even think maybe the main site should be themed like the board, or even integrated, assuming PHPBB3 has the required mods for that.

As for the post I guess it's fine since it's kinda more calc-news/major sites update related and less active members might wonder what happened to old posts or have the old link bookmarked.

Suggestion:
-Make sure the old board is now read-only, so its history won't get invaded by bots.
-Make sure all sections on the old board now shows every topic instead of cutting off the active date to 30 days.
-Add a notice at the top of the board saying the forums moved and the new URL.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

same with me, that and lemonparty are blocked.  I don't know why lemonparty is blocked, but ti-freakware must have some really hardcore pr0n or violence and high-pitched songs :)

jk :P but yeah I also signed up for this forums website as well -- can't promise I can do my normal 10-20 posts a day, but I can promise to check it every now and then :)

I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out how to set the board to read only mode >< I'll keep looking though. And yeah, I know I need to add the notice, but I have not been able to figure out where to do that either :<

Yeah, same. Omnimaga, Revsoft, and TI-Freakware are all blocked at my school (for "games," although the only one I can see that could legitimately have that label would be Omni, due to the arcade), while United-TI and Cemetech aren't.
