Thanks in advance,

I think it was something that was really needed. The subreddit was great but it wasn't everything we needed. Only the upvoted stuff could get answered and there was no way to know what was a bug question, a help question, a question to add more features. This board will make it so much easier to handle everything.

I strongly agree, hence why I took it into my hands to create this. But yeah, simply put, things weren't categorized well and even the popular posts would eventually drop off the front page on the sub-reddit. The forums seem like a very logical step forward, however we just need the user base to move over here before it even becomes slightly useful.

I agree! I'm fairly active on the subreddit if you need a moderator! Organization will be extremely helpful in ensuring everyone gets their questions answered.

I'm probably going to put up moderator applications at some point in the near future for people to help organise everything. I'll definitely keep you in mind, may even put you as a moderator before applications go up.

Just a note, I'd really appreciate any effort to get more people here, so if you could help with that, it'd be awesome!

Great work taking the initiative and starting this site. I can already tell that it will be an awesome place for the Zeta/Omicron community Smile

I really like the style too, even though it is not complete.

I know this is still a bit of work in progress, but the only thing I can think of to make this place better is a little bit of flair, something more than just the dark grey. Aside from that, this is great!

I think this is a great and necessary idea. I've tried often to scroll down new and answer all the questions I could, but so many get lost in the void if they don't include an interesting picture, especially, it seems, if they're the questions I later want answers to, myself. Great idea, man, and I really hope this gains Strength (hopefully not at the cost of a million dollars). But seriously, anything I can do to help, I'll be glad to try. Just let me know.

Hey guys! I'm just wondering, what're your thoughts on the edits I made to the skin of the forum?

Is anything hard to read? Anything you like specifically? I need all the input I can get!

I think it's looking really good! Only thing I can find that could use some work is the profile pages. The orange text on a white background is kind of difficult to read for me.

I agree about the profile page. It's not necessarily hard to read for me, but it is almost painful to read sometimes. A darker color would work better on white. Everything else so far feels polished yet simple, in a good way. I like it.

I'll work on fixing up the profile page sometime in the next couple of hours. Can't be bothered looking through the CSS right now. Razz

I definitely agree with this sentiment. Otherwise, I'm liking it a lot.

I suggest removing the Bug Reports section...since Suze browses the subreddit alot, I think bug reports should be kept in the sub-reddit.

Well, it's here in hopes that the (in a lot of people's minds) superior alternative (forum) takes over, so that the sub-reddit will be used a lot less than the forums. I've linked thesuzerain here quite a few times to just show him how it's coming along, so I'm not sure why he hasn't registered yet, but he hopefully will soon to see bug reports!

I just realised there's a feature which shows whether a user is online! Neat!
