I've changed the engine of the Forum to miniBB. It should be a lot more reliable now. Unfortunately I have no clue on how to import the messages from the old forum, so you will have to either repost them here again, or count them as "done".

The new Forum is based on MySQL at last (thanks to the courtesy of a friend of mine who gave me access to a MySQL database). It is a modified miniBB script with a completely custom-made Doomish skin :-D. Took a few hours to get all the visual elements right, but I think it was worth it.

Any comments or requests about this new forum please post them here.

Thats o.k! We can repost!

A question, though, will we be able to use avatars?

I'm still not sure -- instead of avatars I would rather add doom-monster pictures that depend on the rank you see by your post :-)

Adding a role-play element to the Forum?? I like it!

They delay is a bit annoyable, but not bigger than that. It's in the range of tolerable, and we can live with it. (Just remember that times when 14.4k was bleeding-edge technology).

The only thing I dislike is the that your sig isn't random :-P

Hadn't you see Kornel's posts on rgrd?
Each his message has a different sign selected randomly from a set of previously craftedly collected rogue-like related quotes.

Just noticed this:

Kornel Kisielewicz
Developer
Imp


Somehow, an image coming to my mind is an imp from the Dungeon Keeper, not from the Doom (doom ips is known under another name here).

I guess, I shall post less to delay such 'promotion' :-P
