How in the hell do you even USE that place? It's showing oldest first, and I can't find how to change that, and there's little to show what's actually a topic thread rather than just....A Post.

You mean Sufficient Velocity? Works just like a regular message board. If you mean tekeli (or whatever it is called) I have no idea. It was so ugly looking I turned away immediately.

Yeah, SV, it's set up in a manner that makes NO sense to anybody who actually uses forums.

Eh... what? I've been message boarding since time began and it seems completely intuitive to me. There are forums, subfora, etc... what seems off to you?

Well, it's sorting backwards, for one, the threads don't have their own pages...unless I'm using the wrong thing somehow.

That's one long thread mate. The 'threadmarks' are just book marks the user added when making the post to signal a new train of discussion, as in, instead of having an entire subforum dedicated to Schlock, we get /one thread/.



Which if that's how SV works*, I'll pitch us moving to the new CM once it's finished... old CM sorto ran into a brick wall and feel apart last week, so we're burning it down and moving to a new php software architecture.

* We need a subfora, where we can have discrete threads to contain ideas, not one mega thread where subdiscussions will get hopelessly mired.

Criminy. Then SV is the wrong place if that's what we'd get.


Also, I do still want a dang discord!

QUOTE = "alpha"
I hope to hear a preliminary answer from SV administration soon on the extent of what can be done.
/QUOTE

So what is the extent that could be done? No subfora? Our threads scattered across the board (The Armory in the Chat Lounge, comic threads in the Fiction subfora)?

Not my cuppa. Too much work to find the threads, no capacity to hold a coherent conversation on one day's topic in a megathread.

If everyone else wants to go there, I will not impede you, but I won't be by much.

Alright, since SV is a no go... I've gotten Morrus to open the doors to us at circvsmaximvs.boards.net .

There is no subfora set specifically for us yet... but enrollment is open and their are no spammers. I've been prodding him to get the subfora set up and make me a mod so I can keep the Copy Editing thread clean, family friendly, and on point.

Trying to follow a conversation on Sufficient Velocity was difficult. Circvs Maximvs looks a lot better. That being said, I will go for whatever gives us a sub-forum.

Gentlemen BEHOLD!

The subfora: circvsmaximvs.boards.net/board/7/schlock-mercenary

The Copy-Edit Only thread for Ms Tayler: circvsmaximvs.boards.net/thread/25/copy-editing
(if someone would be so kind as to link it to her, thank you)

If someone wants to tell me how to back up this subforum, I'll be happy to... and then if in the future I have somewhere to host the archive, again, I'll be happy to.
