Fuck you, my good sir. You are a god damn faggot, I must say. Now good day to you, sir!

Respectful like this?

Yes, but please keep the throwaway insults to the lower fora. We still have standards to maintain up here in Announcements.

Am I still allowed to express if I hate someone? Because I really hate Thork. Fuck him.

This forum isn't going to enforce being all goody two-shoes. I don't think anyone here wants that. As long as you keep it within reason and are respectful, that's fine.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Unresolved DNS server name

All of the authoritative name servers for sjm.so are responding correctly to queries for theflatearthsociety.sjm.so. This sounds to me like a problem at your workplace, but if you are able to gather any more detail (such as which name is unresolved), I might be able to investigate further.

Parsifal, if your goal isn't to make this the "new" fes then how will we get enough new members on this site to have any sort of new FET discussion?

Sorry, I missed this post before. I think you've misinterpreted what I said. I want this to be the best possible FES forum (and wiki) it can be. However, I am not aiming to take over the Society part of things -- all the background stuff Daniel does that doesn't pertain in any way to our online community.

I dont like these titles, I am no newbie and, since this forum is all about fairness and being welcoming to members we should abolish these derogatory titles.  >o<

This is the way SMF does things by default. I agree, it's retarted. I just haven't gotten around to getting rid of it yet.

Thanks for that, Thork. I'll read over it in more detail later and edit as needed. There are considerably more rules there than I had in mind.

Suggestions & Concerns / Bug tracker
« on: December 02, 2013, 12:49:16 PM »
This thread is to remind myself to set up a proper bug tracker in lieu of S&C. A web forum is terrible at tracking issues with the forum.

There will still be a support forum for non-technical users who do not know how to file a bug report.

What about John and Daniel?

They won't be admins, but by all means invite them.

I've had a brief look over the theme, but this CSS is frustratingly difficult to grok, and user-interfacey stuff isn't really my area of expertise. I'll hopefully have more time to look at it later in the week and work out what's wrong; for now, you can use the normal search function.

I honestly doubt we'll ever need income to run this site at all. Heck, I'm paying for a server identical to the one this forum is running on and I pretty much just use it to greet people. These things are pretty cheap, and there is free (gratis, lol) software out there that does pretty much everything we could possibly want to do better than paid-for stuff.

Agreed. I was simply addressing squevil's suggestion in a hypothetical situation where that becomes the case.

Should I invite the old admins like Jack and Wilmore?

Please do. Everyone is welcome, if they choose to join.

Not as admins!

Wilmore will have a place as admin here, if he chooses to take it. He has a good head on his shoulders and has done some great things for FET.

I can't install mIRC because I'm missing "msvcp110.dll," whatever the fuck that is.

I presumed you were paying for the space.

If it ever becomes necessary to source funding from the users of FES, it will be through strictly voluntary donations, and perhaps merchandise. No special forum status will be granted to those who donate; I'm not interested in creating a divide between the rich and the poor. And there will never be any advertising on this website.

some really nice forum software like vbulletin

You must be joking, right?

and cover any hosting costs etc.

This forum is hosted on my personal VPS. It costs me nothing other than time to maintain, since the VPS would exist either way.

Its not a crime to make money to invest back to the society.

If the society ever needs a monetary investment, I'll keep that in mind.

I will not monetise this website. T-shirts and the like, perhaps if we are successful here. But I won't make money out of people who simply want to post, through donations, advertising or any other means.

This is weird, given we're using the same style as .org did. I have to leave for work shortly, but I'll take a look when I get home.

Until we get some more specific forum rules (hopefully later this week) to codify this, there's one particular point I'd like to emphasise.

On the old FES forum, there was frequently a drive to put the Society's public image first, or to encourage the registration of new members, both sometimes at the expense of the existing user base. I don't think that's how a forum community should work. This forum is going to be, first and foremost, about making every member who wants to be here feel welcome -- provided they abide by the rules and respect the right of others to feel comfortable here.

I won't turn away unpopular members from .org simply because they have annoyed people. They are a part of the community, and until such time as they begin disrespecting the rights of others, they are just as welcome as anyone else. The moment we begin discriminating based on how much we like someone is the moment we begin to fracture our community, and I don't want that to happen here the way it has happened on .org.

So please, try to be patient and tolerant of others, and remember that by treating others with respect, you ensure that your own place in this community will be protected by the friendly staff here at .sjm.so.

Thanks for your time.

About how big is equivalent?

I don't think it needs to be precisely defined. If someone looks at their sig and thinks "yeah, that's about five lines of text", it's good enough for me.

I need a definite answer for the first question btw.

125x125 for an avatar; a good rule of thumb for a signature is no more than 5 lines of text, or an equivalently sized image.
