PostSubject: Forum 2.0 Update - 12/23/08   Tue Dec 23, 2008 8:52 am

I figured it would be a merry Christmas present to update everyone a little on the new forums that are currently being worked on. I have now completed all the artwork (ie. buttons, icons, etc) for the new boards, and those with the technical know-how are working at putting things together. At this point it appears everyone will be able to keep their previous post counts and what have you, and things are going according to plan.

Due to some issues with the hosting that still haven't been worked out, we'll likely move the boards to www.FredtheMonkey.com /forum for a bit until Cubetoons.com is fixed. When these things will happen is something I can't really give a time frame on, just because I am well aware of how some un-planned-for bug can mess it all up. So we'll keep working at it and hope you look forward to the end result!

Have a very merry Christmas, everyone! (Even if you don't celebrate in the same way.)

I think it'll be just like a universal theme, having all three items, KB, FtM and CT.

Yes, great idea, make it in flash so people on a 56K modem can't see it.

Correctamundo. There will be a "Big Three Boards" theme (I posted the new joint logo a while back) and the universal skin will be bright and airy. Then, after a bit, there will probably be classic Cubetoons and Fred skins, should someone want to return to the olden day look. But right now let me focus on getting the place RUNNING rather than different appearances. :=P:

Also the "level system" will get an upgrade (so long stars, cubes, and Fred heads), and we're trying to introduce a ranking system that will let people give a thumbs up or down to posters depending on the quality of their submissions. That way when you see a large angry face next to someone who spams, you can simply ignore whatever they have to troll about. [smile_wink_that_we_don't_have_here]

So.... Karma? I don't think that's a great idea. If someone hates someone else, they could just wait each hour and bring that person down.

It's a different system than your standard Karma. You get ONE vote, per person. You can't come back in any length of time and make it worse. You can change your vote, but you don't have more power just by waiting. And you could make alt accounts, but you need to have a certain number of posts to participate, so that would take forever and never be worth it. Plus if admins and mods found out, say goodbye to all your accounts. Bansville.

We'll see how it works. If it doesn't, no problem, it gets taken out.

Fordy says 2 things.

1- To be honest, I'd like the post counts to be reset back to 0. For new members joining, the people with post counts in the tens of thousands can be quite daunting... Having us all on the same level might help a few new people feel more part of the community, and new members are a good thing! (Bear in mind this is just my opinion, I've no idea if it would actually make a difference)

2- I'm game for a Karma system. :P

A thing some forums use to help show good posters and bad users.

If someone makes a good post, people can give him a + for Karma, of if it's bad, a - point. These are all tallied, and under the posters name, is the results for him overall; good posters will mainly have + votes (it all gets tallied), bad users will have - votes.

Well, thats a basic explanation I guess...

Karma comes from Hinduism, except on the internet is pretty much how nerd or awesome a person is by others.
