Forum: Version 2.better

edited August 2014 in Announcements
Hi everyone, I understand people are getting a little anxious with registration being limited.
To clarify, we're working together with the people at Vanilla Forum for some cool upgrades.

We decided it would be best to keep registration limited untill that's done.
It doesn't have much to do with trolls that were bothering people.

Some of the features you can expect;

Improved search: Search will be tons better and powered by Sphinx.
Better badges: Apart from our regular badges we will get other badges based on reputation.
Reputation: People will be able to show how they feel about posts with a set of buttons, tied to a reputation system.
Peer-based moderation: If a comment gets too many negative reactions it will automatically alert mods.
Better polls: They won't be as broken anymore.
Best of: Posts with a lot of positive reactions will be promoted, and shown under a special page.
Formatting: We're switching from simpleHTML to Markdown.

More stuff is coming your way, this update will be all about giving users more control of their experience on the forum.
Hang in tight!

Update: Maintenance will take place tomorrow August 20 around 2PM CEST.
It's expected to last about 24 hours so we can get most of the stuff done properly.
Badges will be moved over at a later point.

Update 2:05PM: Maintenance will now start as scheduled. Users will not be able to sign in until the maintenance is completed.

Update 1:29AM: Due to some unexpected things we are extending the maintenance for another 24 hours.
Expected uptime is now 2PM (CEST) August 22.

Update August 22 10:43AM: We're finishing up. Forum should open back up between 2PM and 4PM.

Update August 22 1:34PM: Maintenance is finished

    Pretty nice, I'm glad you found the time to let us know something about this. The worst part was not knowing what is going on, so thanks Opti.

    We need volunteer mods.

    I'd be very careful about rep systems. They are definitely a major troll target. Still good to see we're coming along.

    Suggestion: Opening a thread to recruit mods is a nice idea.

    Oh man, I'd really love the improved search and better polls!
    The formatting is great too though.

    Yay! I agree with DB, not knowing what was going on was the worst part. I'll be very glad about the improved search and polls, I've never been that fond of voting on posts but whatever, at least we'll get registration back!

    Cool. I'm sure, you might want to add some badge in thread Unofficial Forum suggestion to give new badge to user. Thanks. Also after Vanilla Forum is released, move the forum discussion that was created in 2014 and delete this related to 2013, and alert Orteli to update the game frequently, also Debugger to fix frequent problems. I would you like to know more about Vanilla Forums. Also make sure that thread is automatically sticked when you get 25 postive review about discussion. Suggest have it.
