Welcome to our new forum!

Postby Michael Zanetti » Tue May 15, 2012 10:13 am

Hey people!

As mentioned in this topic, I will rebuild the forum.
ALL posts will migrate to the new forum. :grin:

Here's whats currently going on:

Things to do
- Update to latest phpBB
- Fix the private message bug
- Improve forum performance (can be slow often)
- New template
- Remove portal
I think there isn't any useful information to put onto the portal. Therefor going to remove it, which means 1 less click to the forum! If you think we should keep the portal, then let me know :)

- Remove unnecessary mods
I will most likely also remove the gwBBcode functionality. Reason for this is that we don't use it, and seeing as Guild Wars 2 is coming up, I don't think we will use it in the future. Removing this might give a slightly boost to loading pages, as the parser doesn't have to read out the posts.

Currently, I have tried the to-do list on a mirror server. It seems all of the things above worked out nicely.
I will try and see if I can put the new forum online later today.
The only issue I'm currently trying to address is that with the migration, the current avatars aren't restored. Not sure why. :beaten:

Any suggestions are welcome!! What would you like having changed?

Re: Forum bugs & fixes

Postby Michael Zanetti » Tue May 15, 2012 8:24 pm

I wish you all a warm welcome to our newly refreshed forum!
Please let me know if you encounter bugs :D

Good to know
The performance issue was most likely caused by our HUGE database.
Our wiki used up to 506MB + 40MB for our forum.
All that was one database. I removed the wiki, if theres a need for it I will reupload a NEW fresh wiki. Since it was ruined by spambots.

Current bug(s)
Currently none known

Fixed
- STATISTICS (Total posts 6 • Total topics 1 • Total members 1 • Our newest member Xaer0)
- Seems that most people can't change signature.

Is it just me getting it bloated above the forums when I log in? Also might be an ide to only show it when you're logged in to keep things more private :)

If by bloated you mean that it covers part of the forum, then no, it's not just you. It happens for me (FF12.0) as well.

Whenever I have some time this weekend I will install different browsers and test it out.
I had this as well once, but when I cleared the cache it was fine.

Added to the to-do list!
