Yeah, that is why I didn't go back to phpbb3 with forumotion. That is what I started on, went to Invision, and now PunBB. If Simmania is looking to freshen up before if (might) move, I would highly suggest going with PunBB. Looks somewhat like phpbb3 and has template editing.

I have seen forumotion doesn't allow phpbb3 editing because of copyright, but I may be mistaken. Not sure if that comment was from a staff member of the forumotion help forum or not.

I edited the template to add the tabbed statistics to mine, was wroth playing with it. I have a test forumotion forum I do anything on before implementing on the live site.

One free host I found, and actually liked more, was SMFNew. Runs SMF 2, but more limited than forumotion. No modding, fewer templates. But a lot of the templates are premium ones from DZinerstudio. You can get full access via their upgrade to paid hosting. Also, this is a biggie, they allow you to purchase your database (somewhere around 50ish dollars if I remember right.) This would be great if you decided to move from them, unlike the locked fortress your database is with forumotion.

But I agree, if Simmania does move it would be interesting to see it on a traditional host, if possibly. I am usingh a free web host to experiment on. Got phpbb and SMF running on them without breaking things too many times. Razz

Thing about regular hosts though is.. you've gotta pay for a domain and for the hosting. Yes, there are free hosts but they're all horrible in general.
And I have to agree.. I'd change to punbb to refresh the general overall artistic style and layout that the site has been using. It may just be me.. but after a couple of years things get boring Razz

Site upgrades keep rolling along here. There's a lot more coming (I mean a LOT more) so keep checking this thread and the Twitter... if I remember to update it Razz

Today's special is a new color changer. It's a bit touchy (as in it might put the [color] tags in more than once) but I think it's a nice feature and I hope you enjoy it Smile

Yellow! Razz

I assume it's a mod.. based on it putting the tags in more than once.. and I've never seen it before.

MOTMs will be starting back up next month. Very Happy We REALLY need nominations for them, so anyone willing to send in nominations will be a real help. They won't be officially back up until next month, but you can go ahead and send nominations early to "MOTM" (without the quotes) and I will get them. I'll be gone for a trip next week, but after that I can go ahead and start working on getting things back up.

Also, if you want to nominate more than one person, feel free. Just don't nominate yourself, please. Razz

Simmania Junkie!
The chat seminar tonight went great. We broke our record chat attendance (thanks rocky!) which now puts our record at nine. Mayorm, bben, simlink, towncrafter, 7499275, frex_ceafus, tigerbuilder, and myself attended the entire seminar, while elavery was there for the Q/A session.

A recap of the rather brief Q/A session..

bben: What further long term goals do you have?
K50 is working on Simmania v3, and I'm hoping to add another board for a favorite game of mine.

simLink: How close did you come to deleting the forums in early 2010?
I came pretty close, I was about to click the delete forum link.

bben: What other events do you planned this year?
I was thinking of finding ways to get donations to charities by using this site, for example cancer research

I'm in the process of updating the story thread so I'll post when that's done. Smile

Again, thanks for everything mayorm. You're running a truly great SC4 community and I hope to see many years to come.
Btw, you never explained why you were considering deleting the site Razz also if this is formatted wrong please correct it

Now as far as my activity here goes, like I said before, I have a lot of RL issues to take care of as well as other projects, so although I was an active participant during the seminar you may not see much of me.. until I can get everything else taken care of.

Hey guys

As you all know we are working on SMv 3. Which will include some great additions to the forums, and site. When we release we will have to take the forums offline. So I'm encouraging everyone to follow us on Twitter, and we will update you guys when we release it.

Also I was just Tweeting, and for as active as our site is, I'm not gonna lie 6 followers is disappointing Sad

Just click the link in my signature Smile
