Hey guys,

Well, we decided to change to Zetaboards a long time ago. My old forum in server 6 of Invisionfree had been converted. Click here to see.

So, check it out and let me know if you guys like it or not. Please remember that that forum isn't changed at all (coz no one uses it anymore). The design and stuff is crappy and all, so yeah, don't compare design, but compare the functions and all.

The functions of Zetaboards are way better than Invisionfree, but to be honest, I think the stuff is too big. It looks less friendly in a way. So I thought, you guys should decide. I asked some admins, and some of them don't like it (well in fact, most).

Some of the features are listed here. Check that link out, but what looks awesome is that you can now add flash BBCode as well as Spoiler Code, unlike the sad Invisionfree. And quite a few other more! So it looks very juicy... XD

So just vote! =D

Oops, me dumb, clicked on wrong thing. Change that vote from Invisionfree to Zetaboards please. I didn't see a huge difference in function, so why create a lot of work for everyone and switch over?

I really don't know.

I couldn't see that much of a difference, but I'm just your average user and not too into all this stuff. Though a spoiler tag could be useful, I haven't seen that many situations on the forum which calls for one.

So I'll just tag along Shadows remark, why should we even bother?

Mind you, my allergy is kicking in. That means I don't know what I'm saying. :sleepy:

There is one "feature" I hate about this forum - The "new post" light doesn't turn off when you have visited the thread. That's majorly annoying. If there is a way to change that behaviour somehow I am happy with this forum software, but if it can't be then some other forum software please.

And of course if you can get the backup of this forum's database you could switch the forum software (and provider) to something else. SMF is atleast a good forum which I like. It has good set of features (and I think it's possible to add modifications) and it's still being developed actively, and in general it simply Works (tm). I think I red that the support for InvisionFree (the forum software) will be discontinued once they get the Zetaboard up and running, but I could be wrong about that. One of the features I like in SMF a lot is that when you press the button next to each forum (forum = "Official News and Announcements", "New Members", etc) you get a list of threads of that forum that has new posts - it's very handy. For example if there is alot of stickies in one forum, they won't appear in the list unless there's new posts in them - makes it that much more easier to find the threads that have new posts as they aren't pointlessly pushed down.

Those links appear to be broken. I'll have to wait on voting until they work.

I think that Zetabords looks better and the Flash BBCode sounds cool (Now we can put up youtube videos.) I have one question and it quite small. Can you change the skin? The default one the have on there is quite unattractive.

Well I'd really welcome a conversion to Zeta.
That's the first thing I wanted since we went public.

And sure Nona, we can change the layout of it just as we changed the layout of this one!

Get a [CENSORED]ing firefox compatible browser.

Well, we don't move... They convert it automatically for us. At this moment, we have opted for the forum to be converted because that was what we were planniyng to do in the beginning (before we got all these cool stuff). We are not, however, going to change address or something.

Changing to ZB is easy and quick and painless. But moving to an entirely different forum I think, despite the fact that it might be easy too, is a too cumbersome action, so yeah.

Zetaboards should be better though, although it looks big XD

And Rombrent, what do you mean by that? I use Firefox all the time and found no problem at all. Are you using firefox?

Alright then, it seems like people wants to move to ZB, we'll let the conversion happens when it happens. I will keep updating here.

Right now, they are doing a conversion in server 11, if I'm not mistaken.

Invisionfree boards have never worked on my Firefox.

I have talked about this with kissing and that one guy whos name is too german for me to say, and they said they couldn't help me with it.

I am using the most recent firefox, and I had to switch to "Flock" which is a ripoff of Firefox with a few extra addons.

I think either one would be fine. I would like the Zetaboard if we can skin it to look like this one. Otherwise, this one is fine. However, I do like the idea of new features.

lmao

Oh yeah >,>
I'm so sorry that my connection to you got cut off by the way. :3

Well that's really weird... one reason could be the cookies but we checked that already...
Maybe your internet provider?

Oh well, Zetaboards should work better...

And yeah Steve, they are currently converting Server z11.
I can't wait till they convert our server. >,>
