You're Gonna Carry That Weight
Rep: 401

Hi guys, you may or may not have been aware that I’ve been tinkering around with vBulletin software for the past few weeks. But about a week ago, I took a step even further and bought a couple domain names and I’m currently “renting” vBulletin Cloud software in order to test the waters for a new, better, forum. So I’d like to invite anyone that’s curious or anyone who’s looking for a better maintained forum to Take Five.

http://www.takefiveforums.com/
http://www.t5forums.com/ (alternate, shorter URL)

I’ve already given the address to a few users that I’ve had helping me to test some basic features, but now I’m opening registration to everyone that’s willing.

To note a few unfortunate things, the version of vBulletin I’m currently using is lacking in some features, most notably I don’t have the ability to directly change the site’s coding in order to implement major changes. I was told that it was a security measure and the only way I could change it would be to purchase the full vBulletin 5 suite for $250. A price I’m unwilling and currently unable to pay. With that said, if the site grows a sufficient amount that I feel it would become a worthwhile investment, I would eventually take the hit.

So whereas I intend to be a more more active webmaster who’s considerably more willing to implement change, there will be some requests I will not be able to do out of sheer inability.

Also to note, the site doesn’t really have advertisements as of yet. I do hope to implement some in the future, but at current the monthly hosting costs will be coming directly from my own pocket. If people post on the site and enjoy it, I might open up a donation option for anyone wanting to contribute. But due to this, the existence of the site is pretty much at my own fancy and will largely depend on it’s success. If, in two months, I have only have five people posting then I will very likely axe the idea and brand it as a failure. sad

But hopefully that will not happen. I welcome anyone and everyone to join and check out the site.

-Edit-

Also, as a quick note that I’ll add to the first post here... Do not use the same password on Take Five that you’re using here on moviecodec. This site IS NOT secure. And, chances are, hackers are capable of gaining your passwords here. If you use those same passwords on T5 then you will be opening your account up to security exploits.

Sup Cid. Good luck w/ your goal.


But how do you plan to make it stand out & attract newcomers that aren’t linked to this site or any other?

I mean you got to have something that differentiates you from the rest. Like OA & sciboards, or BA/AS, etc.

Or is it going ot the lounge 2.0 kind of thing?

Just want to know man.

edit: Also what’s the character limit on a username?

let me know if you need any help from a Mage. Magic users come in handy in these situations.
As long as your forum is pro-moth we don’t have a problem.

Right now the maximum display is 130x130. It will be update to 200x275 in the near future as soon as I figure out how to expand the avatar field as well. As mention before, vBulletin Cloud restricts direct access to the code so I have to tinker around with a single area of CSS. x.x

The forum is called “Take Five” and I’m taking the phrase to heart. It’s more or less a 2.0 of this place. But with a few new and improved features.

-edit-

Name character limit is 25, I think.

Security and functionality. vBulletin is the best at both.

Don’t even ban him. Just have a script delete everything he posts.

Sit the fuck down, Bjarne. lol

Anyways, I’d join, but the lack of certain sections (namely Politics, Sports, and Comics) makes me hesitant. And a section dedicated to Homework is not a bad idea; George could teach uneducated kids Calculus, Snap could teach them English etc.
