Happy New Year! So, what's next for the forum?

Post by TWAdmin » Wed Jan 02, 2019 12:17 pm

Hi all,

Firstly we want to wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. We hope 2019 treats you well.

As for the forums, we've been talking about them and we're considering what to do with them. Obviously they are a quiet backwater but that's not an issue for us, this place isn't about trying to win traffic prizes, we've just been speaking about what we could do to improve the experience.

If the funding for the project keeps climbing we'll install paid forum software which will not only provide a more familiar experience but also keep things a little less complex and time consuming when it comes to adding features and upgrading. Free forum packages are awesome but they can be a time sink.

If you guys are going to make this a little home from home we'll definitely be willing to do that. We'll also see if we can sort out an invite feature too once upgrades happen. As was mentioned this is mostly down to funding (the TW project does cost) but we think the forums upgrade will happen this year anyway.

Thanks

TW Team

What about this, just out of interest.

What if there could be a forum where the only non-negotiable rules were:

No child porn
No doxxing
No spamming / phishing / malware

With all other rules and guidelines being decided by the community by section if need be?

Would that work do you think?
It's not that I don't care it's just that...what was I talking about again?

That all sounds vaguely familiar, sure I used to post on a forum that did something similar.....

'paid forum software'....keep that sh*t to your self!
We've seen what has happened with 'versions' on LL.
Don't you dare do the same with TW!
