Apologies if this has been discussed before. I feel we need some upgrades/improvements to the forum here on TF. Currently, it is lacking useful features other forums have. Having features such as searching for a specific thread by keywords, list of user id’s, and list of posts every user has created wouldn’t be bad additions. A Personal Messaging system and an online user count would be a good idea too.
Features like that would improve the forum alot and make the overall experience better for all of us at TF. What does everyone think?May 8, 2012 at 7:41 am #30437
It’s the limitation of the specific plugin they use for the forum that causes the lack of functionality. There’s nothing they can really do about it.May 8, 2012 at 7:57 am #30438
You should have seen the first forum, I could post images and videos.
Then this forum was created, a downgrade of whatever existed before.
If anyone is kind enough to make a(n actual) forum just for us (other than Tubatime), please do so, and then redirect all the users here to that forum.May 8, 2012 at 8:48 am #30441
I vaguely remember the old forum. I joined TextFugu in June 2011 but only read a few posts here and there. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago I came back as a full time active member and started making full use of the forums.
It would be nice if some of the features I mentioned were implemented, but as Michael says, it’s a plugin issue, so not much can be done about it.
I met Tubatime on TeamSpeak last week. Seems like a nice guy. He said he doesn’t use TF anymore iirc.May 8, 2012 at 6:19 pm #30459
@missingno15: Ah yes, Tubatime created that forum along with Bbvoncrumb, didn’t he? What was it called again?
The real reason you hate the lack of image/video embed here is because it makes it harder to spam AKB48 ;) Picture after picture, video after video… As much as I don’t care about them, it was still funny :P
I think I’ll take a quick peak at the old forum again (if it’s still up). Wonder if anyone else has posted since I last looked :D
It’s been about a year since this new forum was created, judging by the date on the “Forum Rules” thread. Seems like a lifetime ago…
EDIT: NOOOOOOOOOO!! The old forum is gone!! How could you *do* this to us, man…?! ;_; 1000s upon 1000s upon 1000s of words I’d written all just thin air now. All that time I spent preaching the word of RTK XD Ah, it’s funny in a way, but I’m still sad to see it go, even if it did “go” a year ago :/

Its not exactly the plugin (if I’m not mistaken since they seem to be using bbpress) , but rather the stability of the site itself , since each functionality would need a new plugin added. If you added too many plugins to wordpress , the site’s memory limit might not hold and it’d crash.
Otherwise, I’m sure they’d add bbpress plugins and even buddypress to the site.June 22, 2012 at 8:10 pm #32269
That forum was good Mister, as a forum. It was pretty high end software though. I’d like something like it again, a forum that encompasses anyone (not restricted to textfugu).June 23, 2012 at 5:01 pm #32275

Again? Do you mean that forum is no more? It looked pretty nice from what I remember.June 23, 2012 at 9:42 pm #32276
Dont think so. Tuba set it up, I was like the only one who posted.July 16, 2012 at 10:24 pm #33346
I stopped paying because it was so unpopular. All the data has been deleted. I wouldn’t mind starting it back up again…but I need to know that I’d actually have users…
I’ve got no true backups but I have bits and pieces and could likely have it back up and running in about a week’s time.
