Salary tomorrow.

Hey this could also be a good time to deactivate certain mods eh, like smiley eh? This is the brink guys, who else is responsible let's have a good old lynching time.

I like the old club feeling.

I would start from scratch as far as any moderators go on the new forums. No point in keeping a bunch of people who haven't been around in years as moderators.

But the forum will still look like it does now right? Will it be possible to post YouTube links in threads? Edit : I mean play YouTube embedded? icon_chick

The prices on custom XF development and styling jobs have skyrocketed over the last few years so instead of hiring a designer to replicate this DAC theme (which, honestly, is also very outdated), I'd go with one of the fitting available new themes instead. It would look a lot better than reusing any of the nearly 20 year old graphics on the current one. This simple phpBB is also lacking dozens of new features that modern forum software has, so there would be a lot of missing graphics if we tried to reuse the current ones.

The forum software would be the most current there is and would have all the features you'd expect from a modern forum; post ratings, automated media embeds, alerts, push notifications on mobile and so on. It would actually be the improved version of what RPG Codex and Sorcerer's Place are using because we're still on the previous generation of XenForo there whereas DAC could be moved to the latest, modern version.

A gallery addon could be an optional extra and so on. You can check the basic info on XF here: https://xenforo.com/solutions/

The old style is part of what makes dack into what it is.

Found this:
https://xenforo.com/community/resources/vb-3-x-fluid-fixed.2151/

Is this similar to what dac looks like now? Supposedly easy to change colors.

I don't know if we're thinking about the same thing referring to "style", but overall the forums would feel and look very much the same. It's just some of the button graphics and colours that would be different initially, but the colours would be easy enough to change to match the existing style.

You linked the XF1 section, which is outdated. We'd be installing XF2 here and these are the available styles: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/styles-2-x.45/

I think if we outsourced to one of our neighbors like NMA or the Codex there might be some folks that'll chip in.

Paradise ahead.

The third dawn of DAC, with DAKK mods. Those responsible for the ruins exiled forever, bring on the new era, the third and 1000 year old reign with pillars of light.

KoC, Smiley and others guilty will be judged by the jury of the populous.

Remember.

Also, come on you bunch of fuckers, give a few dollars. Think about what DAC was back in the days... and now think about modern social medias... yep, DAC is still on top of all this shit, it's your haven, you know you'll come back. Now help save it for a few years, cheaps fucks.
