Updated forum?
May 21st, 2011 at 12:52pm
 
I was just browsing around when at the bottom of the Sc page it said:

"You have 5 messages and 1 new message."

So I clicked on it. Turned out I had a new message from April 4th. I was like whoa, never noticed that. Then I noticed the year. April 4th, 2010.

I had a private message from last year, April 4th. I never noticed it due to the placement of the alert.
I think we need a forum update.

I agree. If only I could host the forum for it.

I could make this place very nice.
Mike, what do you think of me making us a new forum?
I have 7+ years of experience and I want to help the application I love.
At least give me a chance.

Mike would most likely discourage you from creating a new separate forum, though I'm not sure he'd allow you to design or set up a new one for this site.

That's the problem right now.
I could do either, it's up to Mike what I do.

I just want to help update this forum. It's too old Tongue

Yeah, same with GMG.
They need to get refreshed a lot.

We should open our own rival GMG Tongue

Wouldn't be a good idea to make a new one. Would cause fragmentation and this forum is already partially a ghost forum.

Yes, but consider that there is a large audience to reach.
Neither GMG or SC forums try to get them by marketing.
A new themed site, updated layout and quality staff team is all a site needs.

I think it would be cool to go ahead and do this.
Even if it lasts a small bit of time, we still tried.

Wanna join Gandolf? You can be admin.  Cool

I've been a part of 2 other forums that have tried this. Both dead...
I think I'll pass for now.

This Plaza forum has been going for about 10 years now in one way or another with the YaBB software.

It does look like I can upgrade to YaBB 2.5. I could also modify the template a bit so that you are more aware of a new private message.

I know you have ten years of history here, but what are the chances of my new forum becoming like the main hub for silvercreator? You would have a rank and a board for it.

I am just wondering if you want to for exposure reasons.

I am guessing you'll obviously say no, but I thought I would give this question a shot.

The Plaza will remain but I do encourage other forums like GMG, etc. I can add a link to the page if you want.

I see what you mean, I was expecting that sort of reply.
Right now I am trying to get people from game maker communities to come join my new forum.

I see frequent loggers here who don't know about my forum. Anyways Mike, I might add a rank specifically for game making program designers and I would want you to take on the rank.

Maybe post status updates of SC and post around, get known. It would be cool to have you as a part time of the community.

Thanks for replying.
