PostSubject: Move the Forum?   19th August 2008, 12:46 pm

The admins and I have been talking. We had the idea of moving the forums. Forumotion is not a very reliable service. We want your opinion. We might have to restart from scratch but there is a possibility we can backup the database.

Benefits of moving
-Possibility of more features in the forum
-Bigger Pokemon section
-More Sections

Negatives
There's a big possibility of losing all of these and restart from the start

Please tell us your opinion. We're looking into vBulletin but before we think about buying the license we need to know how you guys feel about this. At the very least we're looking into Invision Power Board v1.3 (which is the last version of Invision Power Board that's free)

http://sova.raybound.com/
Check it out. It's still on progress

I like the possibility of moving. vBulletin has a crap load of awesome features that would really benefit us. We could also do a lot more with the forum itself rather than being bogged down by a host like forumotion where you can't do exactly what you want to you forum as far as cool modifications. Not to mention it'd help us tremendously when it comes to detecting spies and intruders. However, once SOVA is finished, it'd become a regular forum like Bulbagarden. I think it'd benefit all of us, I really do. But it's up to you guys what you decide.

Guess I'm up for it! Invision sounds good for the features you guys want; I personally prefer Proboards as far as forums go, but it doesn't matter much to me.

There's nothing wrong with Proboards, but here's the deal. We want to host our own forums on our own server. We don't want to be connected to any type of free forum provider if you know what I mean. That way we can do whatever we want and no idiot higher than us can say anything about it. We can do any type of modification we want. Now, that doesn't mean abuse the users or anything, but if we want to add some kind of forum hack, we're free to do it without anyone saying no.

VBulletin is the best, but you have to pay for it. That is what my friend Jim uses at his site. It has hacker detection.

I had a forum of sorts set up over at Facebook, but it hasn't received too many hits. I would set up forums for us on my cousin's server farm (he is in the web page design and hosting business) in Myrtle Beach, SC, but the last boards that I had setup were hacked by some handicapped hating idiot who can't stand handicapped people that can do things.

Here is something that I set up a while back (April 2008):
http://z10.invisionfree.com/pokemonsova/
It is Invision based.
Mods and Admins: email me at ben.darkpikachu.02@verizon.net with your information if you like it so that I can set up your permissions.
