I don't see any need for changes, but I have no expertise here

Agreed. I don't see any need to change anything, current forum is great. Except for the blue color, you might wanna try a new skin for a change, but I'm no expert either.

I think it is great as it is, because that is what I am used to of course. I would not worry to much that most people here do not voice their opinion, because that only means that they dont care, and if you do not care, you can not complain when the change happens ;)

It will be great no matter what I guess.

lol what color would you suggest. Some have said they find it soothing, but others don't like it :P,. pretty standard when crowd sourcing opinions

Impermanence, Royce :P.

I will return at some point. I will probably email SovinNai and see what's up. There may be downtown preceding the transfer. You will be warned.

Lmao. There will definitely not be downtown preceding the transfer - I have an exam to write tonight :P.

Downtime! And it's probably happening tonight for any lurkers reading.

As someone who used to own and admin a vB forum, I can truthfully write...

Y'all do what you feel as best.  I'll be happy however it turns out.  It's gonna be work (even if a labor of love), and I'll appreciate however it all turns out.

Thanks Del.

I'm going to assume this is the general consensus, assuming that generally those who don't say anything don't feel strongly either way.

The main goal is to never repeat what happened at forumer (v1). Now that Madness owns the domain name, we'll never have to change the site address, and that's like 1/2 the battle. What remains out of his complete control now is the physical server the site is hosted from, and the forum format (to some degree). The move to SovinNai's server space will hopefully provide a permanent and uninterrupted home for TSA. It will be great to have this forum safely in the hands of a member of our own community.

What remains is the actual format of the forum that people see, and thus this topic. It doesn't look like we'll ever have our own custom site, as this would be an enormous effort and ain't nobody got time for that. SMF allows Madness to have complete access to, and backups of, all the files and post histories. We now have flexibility to change things around if needed, and there are tons of formats over at the SMF site. This topic will continue on for a while, but at some point (before we start getting an influx of members) the format will be more or less permanent.

I might wander around the SMF site and look at their forum formats. Maybe selecting a few and posting them to a vote would get more feedback than our current shotgun strategy of "anyone want anything"?

Hate to disappoint and/or stress but nothing has happened yet. SovinNai is working on setting everything up (like a new SMF) and then we'll do the final transfer/cancellation/wait for EPP code for the .com. I'm just waiting to hear back from him.

I'm not sure if we'll have to re-register...

I have seen the future. We do not need to re-register.

Also, PMs are safe too.
