    New Forums (Discussion and Status)

    Post  Meow on Fri Aug 20, 2010 8:01 pm

    So as most of you know, this is just a stepping stone until we can get a server up and running to host our own forums/website. I have the PC that we're going to use here, but it's having some mobo/HD issues right now, so I have to sort it out. Besides that, there are a few things we need to decide on and discuss, so I figured I'd go ahead and make a sticky thread where we can post of our ideas for it. Here's a quick list of some things needing doing:

    Purchase a domain
    -www.classact.com is for sale, but you have to make them an offer which means it's going to be way more than any of us are comfortable with spending. www.classactgc.com and some other variations like that are open and available for a dollar a month or so. The free option is using an ip address instead of a domain or use a site like no-ip.com which would result in an address something like this: "classact.no-ip.com"

    Decide what software to use
    -I'm leaning towards phpbb for now, but there aren't too many to choose from. phpbb is really customizable. If someone could figure out what ILX uses, I'd really like to know.

    There's more, but I don't feel like talking about it right now. I feel like getting high and watching the Real World and then watching Jersey Shore, so that's what I'm going to go do.

    I am currently using site grounds to host dear-user.com, and they currently have a deal going on for 9.95/yr for hosting for friends I refer to the service. This includes:

    Free Domain Name
    Free Site Building Tools
    Unlimited Web Space & Traffic
    24/7 Customer Service

    After the year it goes up to $10/mo, which I am sure becomes discounted if you bought a years worth at a time. Let me know if you guys want to do this. Their website is siteground.com

    i second using phpbb, very customizable (from existing mods) and we can even write our own code to make our own mods. as far as the domain i don't see why we need a .com , we can get something else for super cheap and get the name we want.

    Yo, that would be really cool to get us started if you want to send me an invite or however that works. I plan on hosting the website by ourselves at some point, but it may be a little bit before I decide to dump any money into fixing a box that will run it. It'd be cool to be able to get a site up and running using the forum software of our choice (looks like it's phpBB), then we can just export the database into our own servers (I know Dave loves exporting databases).

    Yes, that theme was just a joke, there's no way I was going to leave it, lol. Though, I wouldn't mind having a few bitches (maybe in bikinis?) perched up on the sides. A man needs ladies where he lounges.

    One of the cool things about SMF is that users can choose whatever theme they want. So I can just upload a few and people can pick and choose. Naked ladies for home, bikini ladies for work!
