Are these the new offical forums?

    citricsquid: If a community forum got popular, I'd make it the "official unofficial" minecraft forum

    Notch is concentrating on the game and due to the problems with the current forums he said he'd be open to having someone else run the forums. I'm sure if we can turn this into an active community he'll be willing to redirect all users here and turn this into the 'official forum'.

    Oh we will, considering how ****ty the phpBB forum is. That's what you get when you run a fake PHP :tongue.gif:
  • #4
    It should.. the official forums are **** (phpBB yuck) and Notch doesn't have time to moderate (or assign moderators)

    phpBB isn't that bad, it's just raperific when it's broken.

    I don't mind phpbb, I just dislike the overly complicatedness of it. The forums for minecraft don't really need that much functionality, they're just basic... forums. phpbb3 is designed more for 'advanced' needs, they have an exponential amount of useless permissions that are a huge pain to set up, especially when it's just a matter of post topics and reply, nothing more is needed. I chose fluxbb because of the huge amount of customisability, it's only a base system, so if the forums do take off I could quite easily integrate player skins into profiles and things like that.

    very nice, started modding the other forum today and noticed it took about five tries to delete a single post.. and it was strangly complicated to do so even when it worked. this seems like a good option :smile.gif:

    True true, phpBB really takes a load of time to set up. It's the reason I didn't open my own forum yet, I'm simply too lazy :tongue.gif:

    Well they apparently are now.
    It's MikeSWORD221 not Mike's word221. Got it?

    No it doesn't? It takes like 2 minutes so long as you know what you're doing.

    Are you kidding me?? phpBB takes a ton of coding and such. Do you have any forums that you set up in 2 minutes? No, you don't, so just shut up.

    Well no matter how hard or simple phBB is, half of the forum functions didn't work. At least on this one everything works (so far)
