I'm in the process of installing phpBB and integrating it into Drupal (the content management system that runs this site).
I have been going back and forth with wanting to upgrade the current Drupal forums to include more features like quotes, post tracking, etc., or to simply get phpBB up and running. FierceDiety has convinced me to get phpBB up and running, and after some research it looks like I'll be able to integrate it tightly into Drupal -- 1 login/1 account site-wide, preferences and notifications that are tracked across both places, etc. I'll also get Facebook connect in place so that visitors can quickly get authenticated and be more involved.
As soon as I get it working, I'll link the "Forums" button up top to the new ones and will leave the old forums up for archive purposes. If anyone thinks that current posts should be transferred over let me know. I'll leave it up to the community here to manage forum sections, topics, moderators, etc. Just add a comment to this post if you'd like to be a moderator and we'll get things going.
We're getting a lot of spam recently, which I have taken care of.
I have also blocked the users, but I may have blocked a real user by mistake, if this is the case, please let me know.
Fierce Diety let me know that some contributors were getting a "we think your content is spam" message when posting project pages. I've disabled any spam checking for contributors so you shouldn't have that issue again, or have to use those damn captcha boxes whenever you're on the site. Sorry for the trouble.
I put the site on a new server over the weekend and as some of you noticed it was unavailable on sat / sun. Sorry about that, was my intention for the migration to be seamless but I had calculated something incorectly in relation to the database. Anyways, here we are.
I see people posting stuff like Glide64 and the like -- I just wanted to let anyone know that you can feel free to post any sized package on this server, whether it's plugins, textures, or Emulators and executables themselves. The server can take it.
