Announcement: New forums
« on: July 30, 2005, 11:48:53 PM »

As most of you know by now, the forums have been given a revamp. Running on new software, it should provide a much smoother and quicker experience on GTF.

With every new change, there are new rules and tweaks that are needed. Please read through the new ones here:

Forum Rules

I hope everything works as well if not better than our previous forum software. After running it for nearly 7 full years with update after update, it was time for a change.

Most options and processes from the previous forum have been migrated over. Let me or the mods know of anything odd or if you see something that is missing. We'll try our best to accomodate.

Update 7/31/2005 -

VPS has now been upgraded also. New rules are in place as well, here they are:

Case Mod Weenie - 5MB of space, 60KB per image
GT Fanatic - 10MB of space, 120KB per image
Senior Modder - 20MB of space, 240KB per image
Elite Modder - 60MB of space, 2MB per image

We're basing a lot of added features on the amount of posts you have. So if something doesn't work correctly, check your rank ;)

phpBB is a nightmare.
When I saw this I went to get the latest version to update a forum... and... there has been 2 updates since I installed the forum, and it wasn't long ago!

This is/was a heavy modded forum, so it's worth the change.

Go Ed! :)

I have a question about the credits.  How do we use them in the store?  The store objects costs real money.
So if we have 16 credits, does that equal $16?  I'm confused. :-?
...or maybe I just missed something.

Gid, any chance of making the link to return to the main forum (for example, at the moment it is "GideonTech.com Forums  |  Main  |  GideonTech News  |  Announcement: New forums") a bit bigger for us 1600x1200 people?  size 10 font or whatever it is is just a bit small..

and could you also copy it to be below the last post as well?  the old board had that - very handy.  and just as a bonus, the previous and next buttons..  i'm thinking previous and next page (within a thread), not previous and next thread.

i'm so picky :P


*oooh, new stuff: there's no return to forum index link in the profile pages, and there's no 'jump to last post' button for threads..
