MAKE IROWIKI GREAT AGAIN
« on: March 18, 2016, 08:48:29 AM »
I couldn't resist! :ssh:

Getting ready to move the forums to SMF. Here's what is happening:

  • Market sections have been removed
  • Photo Albums are being removed. Images will be saved somehow... somewhere... maybe.
  • Market forums removed. Ranters will be trimmed.
  • Drastic reduction in the amount of subforums.


Maybe some other stuff. Stay tuned.

Is there a reason for this?

(The above deleted post is from an approved alt because I ran out of inbox space and use iROwiki to talk to a friend often.)

Yeah, we're converting to SMF, which has no photo album.

Most of tirades and the markets were just taking up needless space.

If you donated, you'd have all the space you ever needed :p

It's only the Tirades and Markets sections getting their old posts deleted?

More or less, not decided yet on the old class discussion forums for example.

You should try to preserve all non-market RO sections. The information there can still be useful to see how RO used to be, or for Classic/pserver players.

The latter of which iROwiki has a lot of players of.

Should at least preserve the kRO and iRO news threads, those have important update information that's needed for getting updates on iRO.

I'd second keeping posts outside Tirades/Markets.
If you never try anything new, you\'ll miss out on many of life\'s great disappointments.

I'd also like to keep posts except for those in Market (gone), Tirades. Maybe keep GR too.

The GR threads are kinda funny to go back and read, which is why I didn't delete them outright.

It's amazing how much faster the front page is loading after I got rid of 30+ subforums though.

Nah. Um. I'm not even sure I'm running SMF anywhere atm for you to look at.

It's the best out of the two main free forums, and I like SMF better than PHPBB.

I think you should keep the old class discussion threads.  At least the general ones.  Sure they're a bit outdated but there's a plethora of good info and advice for anyone who likes to search those threads.  It also makes it easier sometimes if I forget details if I am answering someone's question, as a resource for info that isn't contained in the wiki itself.
