Hm. What exactly is changed in the new forum in contrast to the old?
(Apart from the weird look...)
Oh, and I never liked that "Show your creation" is so far down. I always thought, it should be one of the most important subforums.
Anyway - I don't see a reason yet why we would need another forum.
Can somebody explain it to me please?
this new forum is made inhouse by curse, currently we use IPB so we are limited by IPB, in theory the new forums only limitation will be the skill of the awesome guys at curse who are have made the forum.
also because IPB is more broken then something thats very broke (i am bad at comparisons lol)
Reddit isn't the only site that has upvotes, many other forums have it aswell. Infact, this forums pretty much already has this ; it's the "reputation" system at the bottom right of each post. I don't mind that being replaced with a thanks.
