Time for an upgrade

Post by xome » Sun Mar 03, 2013 9:27 am

I'm to a point where I've solved the problems I've been encountering with upgrading this forum and I'm getting close to actually doing it!

It's about frikkin' time... This board has been up since June of 2005. The board software is buggy as hell. Private message don't work, posts get errors, etc. etc...

Also, I'm glad to report that for the past 2 days this forum is on (much) upgraded hardware. So far so good.

So... expect some changes. I'll try to keep the same look and feel... I know how you guys hate change...

So.... which layout is good??
Blue / White
Teal Aliens
Black Gears

I suppose this should be a poll but fuqit.

Black Gears.

And could we have an ignore function on this board so that if any bickering breaks out we can ignore the person that started the conflict?

This board is too good to be ruined by assholes.

Cool.

This board needs more noise discussion and less stupid bickering. Especially discussion about Feedback Loopers, Distortion/Fuzz/Overdrives & Delays of all types.

MMMMM Yummy!

One suggestion for the back gears style, assuming you can change it:

on the main page, sections with new threads show a yellow star on the folder icons, but inside each of the sub-forums, the threads with new posts are indicated with a grey star.

Can that grey star icon be made yellow? It's a lot easier to see them that way since I'm blind. :)

I'll just be happy if it doesn't keep defaulting to totally unstyled on the iPhone and even sometimes on mac firefox

Fixed.

The merits of each of these tends to shift over time. Digital decadency has given rise to a benign ignorance of what can be accomplished.

Microwave mentality and auto-tune - push a button. LOL!!!!!!

Sit down with a few tempermental boxes and learn??? tl;dr.

What software can make sounds like ……….?

These threads can be interesting from a spectators viewpoint.


Asperger's afflicted responses should be dosed though.






Black Gears please.

Well, I said that because this IS a noise forum and besides, redundancy is an issue on ALL forums so big fucking deal.

Also, reading about noise equipment is far more interesting than listening to a bunch of fucking nerds pontificating about pseudo-intellectual bullshit in an effort to appear "deep".

Blathering about "the meaning of noise" or some stupid bullshit about "people acting aggressive because they are into noise" or whatever dumb shit that people want to phrase it as.

Fuck that noise.

Yeah, but there is no "Forum News" or "Announcements" forum so where else would it go?
