All three of those forum softwares are paid?
Unless you're talking about SMF then ... lol
The new resource system sounds much more organized than the current
Shouldn't it be "Peek" ?
my story and two cents
So I had to do a website critique for my web development class and naturally I picked... duh... hiveworkshop.com. After 10 minutes of presenting in a rush I could tell that my professor was anxious to get me away from the podium. I was trying to impress on everyone how powerful a web community could be and how organizing open-source resources was a difficult task that if handled well could produce amazing work. Well, I think my point was not only lost on the bored looking community college students but also on my instructor who probably thought, "damn this guy graduated law school and is still nuts for warcraft... what a loser." He then pointed out that the site was a simple vBulletin template and that it was common (which totally misses the point). Anyway, now I can proudly go back to the class and make a dork of myself again and point out the new design.
What do you think you'll release it?
Yes, SMF is very nice and reliable, and you can do many things very easy.
Definitely you pay too much just for an interface.
Looks very sleek already. I really like the user resource drop list thingy.
I was first meh when i saw the xenforo thing but then i looked at the customized version:
AND HOLY **** THAT'S AWESOME
What if the reputation system was kept, but it'd be shown as EXP bar with levels?
One what I came up with would be like this: Level would increase by 1 when you reach (10+10*current lvl^1.5) reputation. You will be level 5 when you reach 90 rep. Level 10 needs 280 rep, level 20 needs 838 rep and level 30 needs 1571 rep.
I have 40 reputation points, so I would get to level 3 just and just (10+10*2^1.5=38), I would need to get to 62 rep to earn next level.
e.g. Ralle would be on level 44.
Edit: There's the EXP bar:
It looks pretty awesome but is it really necessary?
Are bacon strips on a chicken burger necessary?
Those screenshot looks awesome really and the added features are really great!
Considering this is my preferred forum style and I never ever enjoyed those «mark as read» buttons * number of forums, allow me to disagree.
The buttons are also too far away from the cell borders. Perhaps I'd like them better if they were closer together, but still... why would you, for example, change Off-Topic's icon? The beer comes from the times of wc3sear.ch (different icon, but still ale cup) and it stayed because it looked good and fitting. My policy on this: don't change what doesn't need changing, as it just turns worse.
Huh, that's very person-dependable and, anyway, I was talking of a background image appearing once after the wall, not iterating limitless times like the current profile background pictures.
Sure. My proposal was how they would appear, sort of relative to how information is displayed under the nickname, in posts.
I agree. This should be an imperative principle regardless of the system used in the end.
I don't like how the new blurry sleek mechanical gray/green lines clash with the old style. Other than that, it seems great!
Ralle probably got excited posting this news I guess.
I don't think it's just ralle..
Everyone in this thread are excited (probably not all though)
yay, this information is a present Ralle give us for christmas
That's looking great!
I've heard a lot of good things about XenForo but don't currently frequent any forums using it.
My only request/gripe:
Please, please, please change XenForo's default login pane, you know the thing that drops down from the top and pushes the whole site down so you can log in?
At the very least I think it should have a fixed position, so it just overlaps the site but doesn't push it all down.
Better yet make it a side bar or just use a standard form as Hive has now.
Ok maybe it's just me, but I just find the whole thing really annoying and invasive :/
