Post Forum Move 2012 • Posted: Thu Jun 14, 2012 11:27 am
As some of you are aware, we will be moving the Underwoods to ACGV by the end of the summer. All posts and content will be retained to the best of my ability. Seeing as this will be a fresh install of phpBB3, this is a good chance to clear out modification clutter and errors accumulated over the years. This is also a good time for people to suggest what they would like to see on the New Underwoods.

Some mods will not be carried over due to incompatibility issues. Others will be upgraded. With that in mind, this thread is for suggestions for things to keep, things to add and things that should be removed.


Changes that will NOT happen

- Wordpress/phpBB integration


Removed Modifications

- Shop Modification
- Cash Modification
These three mods work together, but have caused several issues and database problems.


Suggested Changes

- Personal Blogs
Under consideration at the time.

- Calendar

- Alternative Ranks

- Retain Medals Modification

- Switching to Prosilver Theme


Greenlighted Changes

- Vanilla Install of phpBB3

- New Forum Skin
The new forums will have a ACGV Underwoods based skin in addition to Underwoods classic.

- Replacing AJAX Shoutbox with mChat mod

- Retain Quick Reply, Gender mods

- Additional Emoticons
Per request of The Knights of the Emoticons


Completed Changes

I suggest the following:
-A calendar, for keeping track of things like Saplings' Fortnight
-A return of the Forces of Ganon alternative ranks
-Possibly a different medals mod? I'd hate to see this mod go. :/

I hate to see the shop and money mods go myself, but I'll second the alt ranks for Ganon. On the subject of ranks, we could have custom ranks too based on number of posts or what not. Also, a more...intensive birthday mod of some type might be kind of cool too...maybe.

This is finally up.

Yeah, the medal mods should try to be kept or upgraded.
And the emoticons, if possible.

We'll see about the medal mods. The issue is simply that the version installed was supposed to have been updated periodically. Instead right after I installed it, the mod was abandoned. In any case, I guess we'll see what happens with that.

I agree with having a schedule on the board. It might be good for AGCV related things like when a stream will be or a pod cast.

Profile comments/interactions would also be nice. I guess finding ways to make this more like a social network, since that is essentially what EDN has become. A social network based on a forum software, for Legend of Zelda nerds. :P

Just a thought, with the move, will be keeping the Underwoods as 'The Forbidden Underwoods'? Or shall we be changing the name to fit ACGV? Alternately what will become of Exploding Deku Nut? Is it still going to be up and running, or are you going to kill the poor creature? D:

I disagree with profile comments and the like, and my reasoning is that I'd prefer to leave the unpleasant feeling I get from using Facebook on Facebook. Your profile is your own little corner, if you will; it would feel weird, to me, if others were able to add to it (as with comments).

I also stand behind having a Calendar mod for scheduling and the like :p.

And I also stand behind trying to retain some sort of Medals mod, it's nice to see recognition given to members for all kinds of accomplishments.

Member blags would be awesome (since I suggested it ;D), but I can see being hesitant given the monumental increase in chances of forum drama @_@.

I have a question about mChat that Google doesn't seem to want to answer.
Will it do the same thing as AJAX chat when a user is inactive and increase the autoupdate?
Also, it appears that mChat allows the option to show user avatars in the chat, so to add a suggestion of my own (seeing as how that's the purpose of this topic and all), I suggest that the avatar option is turned off and it stays name only in the chatbox.
