Welcome to the New OldSchoolHipHop.Com Board

Postby JohnG » Sun Nov 18, 2007 7:01 pm

It's been a long time coming, but I'm looking forward to the many new options we'll have here.

Take a look around. I know there are few color issues, but use the thread to point out anything you see that's a not quite right.

Hey John. New board looks good (if a bit weird in not being all dark blue). Thanks for your efforts.

Looking good John! Will the old board be shut completely? If so when will it happen?

Here's the tentative plan...

I'm looking to have most of the kinks worked out of this board by Dec 1. After that, I'll suspend new registrations from the old board and remove the link from the main site and point it to this board.

Once that is completed, I'll post an announcement on the old board saying no new threads should be started and any that are will be deleted. Posts already in discussion will stay open.

I don't foresee the old board going away until around the first of the year and even then, I'll only suspend new posts, but the old info will remain there for viewing.

I can't believe that forumco won't give you a backup of the old forum database! Great forum btw, phpbb3 is very smart! :)

You know it's been a while since I asked, maybe I'll give it another shot just in case.

Great forum btw, phpbb3 is very smart! :)


Thanks, setting it up has really stretched my web knowledge beyond anything I've ever done. Plenty of trial and error going on. The kinks are still a bit frustrating for me, but I'll get it working right eventually.

No problem, keep up the stellar work John, what's the scoop with the transition? Should we all just start posting on here from now on?

I'd say the more posts here the better. One, to get used to it, and the other is so we can find all the kinks.

Here's the response from ForumCo...

Forum owners or administrators have no legal right to this database or its content and it remains the property of ForumCo. We have a policy of only releasing a forum database, either partially or in its entirity to members of law enforcement in order to aid in the prosecution of criminal cases (as we have done in the past) or when ordered to by a court of law in the Republic of Ireland.


So much for that.

I'm working on a few things, but nothing definite at the moment. I have no way to cut and paste unless I went to every thread and did it (which would of course take years). And without access to the database, it's not looking good.

Theres only 1 thing i don't like, and 1 thing i noticed.

On the board index page it shows who posted the last topic in each section but not what topic it was in. The old site did. I kinda liked that. But i can live with it lol.

And the thing i noticed was there is no Quick reply like the old site. Just regular reply. But there is probably a footer or header code out there somewhere for that.
