Is it better or worse than the old one, and what other features would you like to see?

What would make you use it more often?

Seems to work fine, though as usual we'll find out more about it as more people post/respond/etc.

Come join!

Cheers,
HM

It died a death. My co-editors couldn't keep the time commitment, and I couldn't accept/reject submissions by myself because of the voting system we'd decided on, so we stagnated and got swamped with unprocessed submissions. I'm planning on resurrecting the zine without the other two sometime soon.

this really has the look and feel of phpbb, although i can't be sure the phpbb guys came up with it first. good job anyhow, this is what was needed all along; the original forum was like a throwback to the days of reading email with PINE.

Heh, I remember PINE... along with cold winter days in the dark basement computer room...

Annoyingly, the old forum only died because of auto-spam scripts. And I wished I'd archived the posts beyond mid-2003.

Cheers,
HM

This forum is powered by Snitz2000 - an open source (three cheers!!) ASP clone of vBulletin. Yeah, the old forum was not conducive to lengthy discussion, to say the least.

I would still have preferred to see phpbb (also open source). It has some features I haven't found on this yet, such as logging in and being able to have all the new posts since your last visit consolidated onto 1 page. It's not too late to give it a try before all the users come back!

Oh, I realize there's an Active Topics feature, but iirc phpbb would actually summarize all the posts within a thread for you. That said, the graphical foldertree view at the top of these pages is a lot easier to grasp than phpbb's.

I like this forum. The old one was rather painful, actually.

I like the new forum environment with its enhanced features. Thanks, Hsien Min and everyone who has helped, for re-creating this humdinger.

Hi, M. Chu, it's mostly to Alvin's credit actually. All I did was give him a pretty clean slate to work on (i.e. crashed the old forum). I'd say, "Round of applause all round", but it seems to be coming in already. Cheers, HM.
