Cool

Here's the new message boards! We don't have some of the cutsie features of the old board, but this one should be much faster and much more stable. Also, if you are someone who has previously requested to be a moderator, e-mail me about that again and I'll give your account those rights. So what do you think?

IHL,
Mickey

Mickey...why the switch? This one seems much more streamlined. I would love to help moderate if you like.

We were having a number of problems on the old boards, such as:

-Members losing their number of posts, which some people are quite proud of.
-Can't edit messages sometimes.
-Can't delete posts at all without errors.

Basically, the other message board was a free board that is always evolving. A very good board, but with some issues. This one is a *real* message board. It runs off of a MySQL database, so it will be faster and more reliable. It also will be able to handle a harder workload.

Also, which section would you like to be a moderator in? For now I'm only allowing any one person to moderate one section of the board. Let me know which section, and I'll set you up. Thanks!

IHL,
Mickey

Unhappy

I can't really tell if this is really faster than the other one. But this one should load faster because it doesn't have any images. The monotonous gray background is boring. Don't you have any control over the colors? Now I have to memorize all the smiley codes because it doesn't have buttons. Checking my memory: > ;D 8) : :P By the way, I was Wes over at the old message board.

Angry color tags

And I can't even use the color tags. I hope I remember how to use html tags. By the way, what are the rights and responsibilities of a moderator?

Hey, Wes!

An upgrade of this message board is forthcoming, probably within the month. This upgrade will include the capability to have pictures with profiles again.

IHPL,
Kelly

Mickey...general chat would be fine. It really doesn't matter, whatever section you need me to moderate.

Yeah I'm with Wes...what exactly does a moderator do? Also, how soon are you going to close down the other board? It would seem to me that the sooner you close down the other one the sooner all the people that are stilling talking on there will start talking on here.

I'm going to close down the other board pretty soon, but there's still some good threads going on over there. Since I can't move them, I thought it'd only be fair to let people talk them out. I'll probably close it down in a few days.

IHL,
Mickey

Thanks, Kelly, for telling me that after I have gone through all the trouble to add an image to my signature. Can you absolutely not have shadow and glow effects on this board, or can you add those features with the update? Mickey, I thought you were going to give us a couple of weeks before you totally closed it down. But since the board is yours, I won't tell you what to do. And since you are encouraging everyone to start a new thread here and not there, it will die away within a few days anyway if you can really enforce that.

That's what I'm thinking. If I need to wait a few weeks to close the old board down, I'll do it. However, I'd like to see people wrap things up over there and move in over here within a few days. We'll see how it goes and just play it by ear.

IHL,
Mickey

Also...umm...how exactly do I fulfill those responsibilities? I know I sound computer illiterate, I'm not, but I'm not sure my stuff is working right yet.
