New forum for bsnes

Post by byuu »

At long last, I've set up my own forum:
http://board.byuu.org/

First and foremost, my sincerest thanks and gratitude to pagefault and the moderators here for hosting this forum and putting up with me for so long. Also, nobody asked me to leave here or anything like that.

I hate to ask others to register at yet another forum, but I've decided it'd be best to use my own forum so that I can better handle moderation without pushing drama on the staff here. They don't deserve that.

I also don't want to put up with any spam, so for now I require manual activation of new accounts, and manual moderated approval of new posts for unknown users.

If you want quicker access, PM me here with the username you signed up with. Otherwise expect a ~24 hour turn-around for new registrations.

As for the two forums here, I leave that up to the staffs' discretion. I certainly have no objections to removing them both at their convenience.

There's a fair bit of data in this forum that hasn't been archived, correct? Perhaps a backup of the forum ala the original bsnes thread would be best.

only one problem with that.. you'd have to backup THIS forum's contents, weed out the other forums and usergroups except for the bsnes boards, and then somehow make it to where byuu won't get locked out of his own board.

byuu, I have registered on your forum. You mention how us telling what our username is will speed up the time it takes for our accounts to be activated; the account name I signed up with is "lordmister".

I do know that phpBB databases (if you get the *.sql file) it's a big text file.. Maybe we could get Nach to backup this forum, and do all the stuff I described? He managed to reset Dark Force's account when they blew away all the 0 post members way back when..

Oh? I figured everyone liked it but was just too lazy to upgrade :P
Didn't want to go with phpBB2 since it receives no new security updates.

I like it so far. Has a ton of neat settings. If it starts to bog down I can look into writing my own forum anyway. But that won't have any bells or whistles.

phpBB3 is just the definition of slow, it's terrifying.

SMF, myBB are leaner. But eh.

Oh shit, that stuff I was saying earlier about databases, I forgot byuu uses phpBB 3.. so now we have to:

1) convert forum's DB to phpBB 3
2) everything else I mentioned

I don't think anyone was suggesting we move the current bsnes forums over to the new one. I know I wasn't...

Yeah, merging is not going to happen :P
Can manually move the most important stuff over.

Forum thing is kind of neat. Set up a hidden forum for WIP discussion, and I can make a "News" board to link in [ Discuss ] posts to main website news posts.

And I can post my wildly off-topic rants about other forums and political issues with (even more) impunity :D

You could just apply the WIP password to the forum instead, there is no need to make it hidden.

Seems fast enough to me, but there's only one topic, and it only has 6 posts.

Hmm, I tried posting there and apparently every post I make must be approved by you before it is publicly viewable.

Is there a reason for this or is that just the default in your phpBB3 installation and you haven't got round to changing it yet?
EDIT: Oh wait, sorry, now I know. It's because I haven't actually been activated yet (I thought that was a bit odd; tried signing in and it worked so I thought my account had been activated; guess I was wrong).

It will go away once you've had three posts approved.

congrats byuu, I signed up right away

I don't mind, I'm signed up at a ton of forums so it's pretty much the norm.

I could sign up, and promise to abide by your rules (I'm not always an idiot.)

But I should at least wait until things all settle out around there, then I'll think about it. I need to ponder if I can contribute anything useful to your board. I don't want to become your first spammer.

I hope it prospers though. (Sincerely!)

a little off topic question,

do you also apply word filter for the often mis-spelled emulator names on your forum?

Im not byuu
I wouldnt imagine byuu to do things like that cause I figure him to be a little stricter (but not in a mean way, just in a tidy way)

then again I dont know byuu personally enough to know what he really would do :V

Congrats on getting your own forum set up finally byuu, what was it 2 years in the making? I kid kid.. I congratulate you on the progress you have made on bsnes, I thought you were never going to work on SA-1 stuff :P Anyway it's a great achievement I look forward to other great stuff coming for your end of the pipeline, you have already contributed a lot to the scene as it is.

Cheers.
