Make comments and suggestions here.  Please don't close...

Dont close or we'll do the trick! Bwahaha!

Say, this is on Kontek matters. What the heck is Underground Circuit? Even Rork was confused.

And, what does it take to work at Kontek.net, because I was thinking that I could start updating the place a bit.

Please no flame wars either, whew.

Anyway, the forums are perfectly fine. Nice simplicity and no stupid space-taking pics next to your name and not a jillion options like on newer forums. I would neve leave these forums. Nobody should change them at all.

Take one out and scratch my head, I am black but once I was red. What am I? Remove the outside, cook the inside, eat the oustide, throw away the inside. What am I?

Seems to me that since they're still supporting all the forums across this network, and a couple of them still get posts (like NEStable, I think), I'd think they'd still support this one, as long as it was alive. I suppose I'd have to ask the higher ups if that was true, though.

The other thread was closed because of the tone and direction it was taking. This thread is much better.

And what do you mean by fixing holes, exactly?

For starters, nullifying what jon just posted.  Still doesn't help the server performance though.
Underground Circuit is a personal site by a former staff member.
To work at Kontek, you must give me $1000.

Ok, so where's the PayPal, then?

Actually, to be honest, Ive been wanting a site where I can make money off of. I can donate some of the profits to Kontek to make it up to you....

Unfortunately, I just found out that these forums are not fixable because all CG forums are shared source.

Not just ClassicGaming, but all of GameSpy's network has these forums! Sites that aren't even on CG have the same ASP database.

For the people still against a new board, what if we could make a phpBB mimic the current setup? A new board doesn't have to mean more clutter.

My main concern is... I don't want to lose all these topics that have been here. It's like an archive of it's history...

No, even if you made a phpBB board mimic the current one, I'd still stay here.

Sapph: If we get a new forum, we'd either archive this board, or migrate all the threads to the new one.

I can't stand this!
Why even bother when this board works fine?!
Just leave it and ignore jon's dissatisfaction! Why are you all of a sudden gung ho on a new board just because jon brought it up? EVERYTHING WAS FINE UNTIL JON DID THIS.
Archive the forum: It's dead.
Move the topics: It's not the Fungi Forums anymore.

I beg you. Leave the boards as they are.
That was a joke.

I am ignoring jon.  This has nothing to do with his requests.
>Move the topics: It's not the Fungi Forums anymore.
Why not?  If it looks nearly identical, without all the server problems, what's the issue?

Case in point: Searches still don't work

« Reply #21 on: September 22, 2003, 12:27:00 AM »
I think by "works," he means that the server "problems" of not being able to ban and all the special powers really have no effect on the fun we have here and the meaningful or spirited or wacky discussions that we create. I'd argue that the server problems have made the forums more interesting and more fun at times. Please don't confuse technological working with working working.

As long as this server remains, don't change our forums.

Don't kill the magic.

For us?

You can't get something - whatever this board has - on new forums. It's just special like that. Please. Don't force something on us that we don't want just because it's not the newest hunk o' junk on the Internet. If the people don't want it, don't do it just because you want it. Don't kill it.

See, this board is like the Millenium Falcon - the ugly hunk of junk that everyone loves and can do the Kessel run in 12 parsecs or something. Sure, those new Imperial Cruisers look nice, but changing forums ain't like dustin' crops, MegaByte. One wrong move and we'll be space dust from here to Alderaan.

Well they already killed the magic.  Gamespy changed something without telling us and I was forced to change my handle because it no longer supports ASCII.

You know what could change?  The different section descriptions.  Like under story boards it still says the joke about "like story boards for cartoons?  Ha ha?"  Just a suggestion.

If you don''t have anything nice to say, make sure you have something heavy to throw.

Well that's lousy. I wondered why... wait, you mean ߥ doesn't work? Or only in names?
...Still, that's lousy.
But that still doesn't make a new board necessary.
That was a joke.

« Reply #29 on: October 06, 2003, 03:28:03 PM »
I'm changing my opinion. Only change the boards if we have all of the old threads, and if the changes are very, extremely, stupidly slight. Like... changing the background color, or something.

Who cares about the topics here. They sorta stink anyways. Besides, with all the posts we get here, we can post em on the new forums.

And stop talking about me. I dont like it and it makes me mad (grrrrr).

BTW, you can do stuff with the phpBB forums with the CSS and change the layout and stuff. I wish I knew a lot of CSS stuff, cuz you could have a really good forum that way.

I'm agreeing with Chupperson, LD, etc. We're not leaving and we're not being forced out of here. If you make a new forum, I'm not leaving and that's the deal for me.

Jon, we're not making fun of you, we're just trying to not let you convince people about getting a new forum.

I think frostbite pretty much summed things up here. This was my very first forum I'd ever joined. I have plenty of memories rooted here, almost all of them good.
200 characters and nothing to say.

I'm not talking about moving forums, I'm talking about switching to a new kind, something like phpBB. You can keep the look and everything the same, you can even make the forum look and act exactly as this one, with some time on coding. It'll offer much more security than this place.
