New Forum Proposition

Post by John Blake on Thu Aug 18, 2016 4:48 pm

Hello everyone, from the RPPvP and Defias community.

Today I've come to propose the creation of a new forum.
I'm a web designer and master and I would make one, however I do not have intentions of remaining
as an admin or mod; instead I would propose influencial people, Skarain to be the Administrator,
and two influencial Roleplayers from each faction for Moderator.

I have most things ready, even made a logo (subject to change)



I would also add pages such as roleplay guides and other things to costumize it's looks
into the current xpac's colors and elements.

I have come with this proposition as the old forum seems sort of unmanaged, and I believe it has
looked the same for quite sometime, and I heard the old admin is not here anymore, which (I've used
Forumotion before) which would mean that any new edits are out of reach without full admin power...

I would use the phpBB platform for this, as it is easy to use for me, and I have a sweet idea of how to
make the forum look like and I know for a fact that many of you would like it.

I await for answers of the players and Skarain.

Thank you,
John Blake.

Honestly, if you want to move on from this forum, I think you should reintegrate in the battle.net ones. This forum was established to distance ourselves from the, at the time, very active PVP community that made the realm forum a clutter to navigate. The RP community then was large enough to sustain a very active forum in DefiasRP and as evident when looking at it it's seen a lot of use over the years, however the circumstances that led to its creation are no longer valid, and as such I don't think creating an entirely new forum is the best course of action. At the time of its creation the RP community was very large and in fact popular enough that we had a constant flow of applications for whitelisting on DefiasRP (back then a large section of the forum was invisible to non-members and you could only post in the application board untill you were approved for full access).

I personally would think this as a good idea. The old forums could still exist as an archive, but considering how old and large the forums are and there is no admin a new one would make a difference.

I've been looking at them a bit recently and I remember why I stopped. It's still a very toxic environment from what I can see.

I'm happy with this forum but will happily switch to another straight replacement as long as we all switch over.

There is no need to switch sites. We do have access to all of the inner workings of the website and can roll over any changes that we agree into.

The founder of the site does play actively on server these days. During the time a few years back when they didn't, I kept poking them over Skype for any changes, any new forum sections needed or issues members were having. In the end, they dropped me the Adminstrator rights to make things easier.

I've doing minor editing and filling requests since, but not any larger changes since such are to be discussed amongst the existing admins and the community before going forward.

I'll be raising this thread to Cathee awareness so that we can discuss it further.

EDIT: I've also moved this thread to the forum section it belongs into.

So is, and has always been, DefiasRP. The fact that it's now too inactive to really gauge any toxicity doesn't redeem it.

Seeing as this proposition appears to be going ahead, can I make one request: please ensure that the new forum is mobile-friendly - both to tablets (e.g. iPads) and phones (e.g. iPhones, Android, etc)

Might as well give my 2 cents on this.
This website is already like an old library of Defias Brotherhood RP Lore. Are you intending and willing to transfer all of it?
Maybe an up to date website would be nice, but why fix it when it isn't broken?
Been using this website since I started RPing 5-6 years ago now and this website has stayed strong and true in my opinion.

As a relative newcomer, I think this site is readable in itself. I never really got the tinge ''oh this needs change''.
Besides, I found all the tips and lore bits I was looking for when was starting out, really can't complain.
