Forums closing

Post by Paul » Sat Apr 01, 2006 00:01

The amount of crap on the forums is too much. Therefore I've decided as of next Thursday they're going to close.

Permanently deceasing the forums is streching it a bit, don't you think? Such a course of action would have more of a devastating (literally) impact on the community then what would be anticipated.... not that you care.

Or you could just trudge along with a MASS MEMBER BAN and enable an option where the admin has to sanction the activation of the any newly registered member. ;)

MASS DELETE then disable account creation.

Matt, I know alot about phpBB. I've used it for like 2 years.

Wester, your idea would just spam his e-mail box up.

Is knowledge of writing PHP scripts and knowing what's under-the-hood when it comes to phpBB (things such as MySQL databases, manual file editing, Apache, GZip compression, and again, PHP, knowing the Admin control panel by heart, etc) really relevant if he's going to create a freebee, web based forum?

Er - I think he means a forum built off the MMO domain, so he would have access to the cPanel to "script" etc.

And I also meant the admin panel, which isn't difficult...but still.

I don't understand the post, maybe because I'm brain dead. But anyways, I'm thinking this is all a April Fools Day thing, so whatever.

YOU AND YOUR LIES PAUL!

OR IS IT?

Perhaps thinking this is an April Fool's joke is the April Fool's joke! THINK ABOUT THAT ONE!
