Bring back Omnimaga 2?

Seriously, there are 10000 sites "Calc-whatever", Omnimaga was original and had that going for it. My suggestion is that you go back to the Omnimaga account, and re-open a board there.

Bring back Omnimaga 2?

Well unfortunately reopening Omnimaga would involve reposting all the old RPG archives again on the new website, like on the old one. Which was a pain. Same goes for the news.

Plus since the old board has been deleted we still lose all posts anyway, so if Omnimaga was to reopen it would be on this forum.

If we do this I will need lot of help on getting the RPG archives back and the news articles. Every news items are avaliable either on TI news or the old Omnimaga website. As for staff archives I will link to ticalc.org files instead so its easier to manage.

I will start a poll I think

EDIT Poll added. Btw the Invisionfree version of Omnimaga was Omnimaga 2, the version 1.x of it is still here: http://omnimaga.unitedti.org/index_v3.html

also if I revive Omnimaga I might as well make a version 3 of it instead, since we are kinda restarting from scratch, so maybe I could add new stuff and section to the website. I always wanted to make a Calculator FPS headquarter, I just never got enough time to do it and back then there was like 4 FPS for calcs
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

Suggestion: don't bother with old news posts, and make the archives focused around Omnimaga's projects (members' projects). This board seems just too cold, Omnimaga had a soul behind it.

Well it isnt Omnimaga anymore if the rpgs arent here...

As for the news I could just repost all news from the ti news conglo in one single post and put it as News archives, that would be as easy

I feel very sad for deleting all staff work, especially managers who brang back the archives online after the move to invisionfree, I wish this didnt happened, but oh well it doesnt mean we cant rebuild

Then we can all work together to bring them back. They're archived on the old Omnimaga static web site, so they're organized ready to post. I volunteer for the TI-89 and TI-86 sections.

 Should we use the same archive format than on the old site?



I think I'll be in charge of the news.

well I just need to rename this forum to s9.invisionfree.com/Omnimaga and make the omnimaga.dyndns.org domain primary again, put back the old skin and make a new banner asap, I am wondering if someone was willing to make a banner for Omni v3 , actually it would have the exact same Omnimaga logo on dark bg but the slogan would be "Coders of Tomorrow"


I added a temp banner now :Ptongue.gif

Okay, "calc.org" is just... unoriginal.

user posted image

Tis the new logo.  The right side is open for editing, so if projects come up, we can put screenshots on it.  :)smile.gif
