Re: Can you edit the forum

This is odd to read. Free hosts like the one linked have a standard script where you just fill in your site name and username and it makes the board for you. They use complex blended databases to host all the sites in 'one place' with one set of core files. Therefore it is often not easy to obtain ...

Re: Can you edit the forum

This is odd to read. Because my host does daily backups for free and through cPanel I can back up the entire database anytime with just the click of a button. I've only used two hosts in 15 years. I don't even remember the first one but been with Hostdime for the last 14 years. Never saw a reason to...

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

That's why I said "a poster YOU don't agree with." If the community has a problem with an active poster you roast him in a fire pit and bury his ashes under a public port-o-toilet. So I was referring to the webmaster and not the community. I would never side with an individual over the entire commun...

Re: *Anti* Social Network sites

Yeah, but a 350 fits in nearly everything. Can be economical or a hotrod. You can get parts almost anywhere. And when called for, there's a bolt-on part to accomplish almost anything, and almost anyone, can do it. But me. I'm an idea man. I'm an expert at telling other people what's wrong with their...

Re: Moved to https, now how to update db internal links in posts??

It's not from lack of trying. I can't find the register form on your site. Maybe my iPhone is blocking the link or something? That would be weird, but I can't think of another reason why it's not showing up?

Re: When to Quit With Your Online Community

Well, yeah. There's that too. :? My board has been an emotional journey. When I say community I meant it. We had people meet and get married. Have babies. Get tattoos, throw giant parties, create businesses together, became lifelong friends, became lifelong enemies, sold each other our stuff, sued e...

Re: 3.0.1.4 support ?

I thought I was registered? Anyway, I don't have phpbb but I want to. I have ipboard or what's better known as "extortion 101." I thought from your posts on this site, you'd be the guy I'm looking for to save me from the bad guys and set me up on [where I should have been from the start] phpbb. I've...

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

It seems like 99 out of 100 boards go no where. What does it take to get a good sized user base? Is it all in the name? What did the people that were successful do that the many, many that were not, didnt? I've had my board 15 years and still can't answer that question. Sometimes they come in herds...

Re: Why did you choose phpBB over other board systems?

All of us went through that tough decision the first time we wanted to create our own message board: Which CMS should I use? There are a lot of board systems on the Internet, from open source projects like SMF, MyBB and PunBB to proprietary software like IP.Board and vBulletin. Every of them has th...

Re: *Anti* Social Network sites

I know this has been mentioned far too many times than one could even imagine to think, but I think the real problem with what has caused some boards to slow down, is not sites like facebook in them selves but the fact that mobile users, who are getting more and more by the day have the inability t...
