I kind of agree with Rolo here. We only need the space maybe once a year?


#799

Yep, but at the most important time (probably a few times a year not just one)

If the members of the forum are willing to pay then all should be good, right?


#800

What does the invite button, invite to?


#801


#802

I wonder how Blitz would go if we ran it for a while with no names, no avatars, and no profile to see who posters are?


#803

You and I would have to change our posting habits so no could work out who it was.

The VFL team never win the premiership, stuff ‘em.


#804

You mean everyone posting to the same forum anonymously?

It’ll never catch on.


#805

agree


#806

Wholeheartedly.

I trolled the Richmond site many years ago, in better times (sigh), which is why I got this email.
I share it here for your very limited interest.

Hi wimmera1,

As mentioned in my last post on the site:

I am aware that some on the site have concerns about the number of times that I’ve changed the software that runs on this site. I have made no secret of the fact that I like Yellow and Black to use software that I can learn from and perhaps use elsewhere.

With this forum software (Discourse) I have to admit that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, that’s for sure. While I believe that the software itself is superior to other forum software that is currently available; for a ‘tinkerer’ like myself, it’s driving me crazy! There are restrictions on many aspects of the software and I am unfamiliar with the programming language - Ruby on Rails - and even less so when it comes to the ‘container’ on the server in which it runs. The software doesn’t even have a setting for closing the site!

Needless to say, this has reduced my enjoyment of the site as I no longer have the same control as I once had. I have tried offering to pay programmers to migrate from this forum to other software. The response is the same - it’s too difficult and nobody has ever moved FROM Discourse rather than TO Discourse so they aren’t keen to take it on.

I have decided to move to new forum software which I think you’ll like much more. I know that it’s certainly much more easily tweaked, that’s for sure! You’ll find the new site here: https://yellowandblack.com.au

Things to take into account:

  • 2018 posts won’t be found here. I’m working on a way to get a read only or to migrate the discussions.

  • Your E-mail address is the same as what it was before the last software move ([email protected]). I’m working on updating them, so if you don’t have access to your old E-mail address, send me a PM with the details and I’ll fix the issue.

  • I’m working on the colour scheme :slight_smile:

  • Please don’t log any issues (other than you can’t login)

  • If you can’t login, do a password reset (remembering that it’ll go to the last E-mail address you had in December 2017). If all else fails, send me a message

  • Enjoy!

Trolling as Pimpinio_Tigers ??


#809

Nope, but good idea!


#810

I figured that may be the case after I saw the letter said Hi wimmera1…


#811

Eww.


#812

Bunch of updates to the forum software + theme today. Please post any bugs.


#813

OMFG ROLO LIVES


#814

The dislike button has disappeared… oh … wait.


#815

I’ve got a weird grey line in the banner that doesn’t look great.

Drop down from the profile pic on the top right of screen needs reformatting.


#816

Mmm, … wasn’t sure if it was meant to be that way, or if a bit borked after update??


#817

I’d need to be a hammerhead shark to read the Latest Post screen (which I imagine is what we all use) on the laptop.
Seems okay on the phone.
