Question to all Korax fans and team members

The RavenGames forums will be soon converted into another format, get a new look and be moved to a new domain. The question is, what would you like to happen to the Korax forums? Remain a part of the RavenGames forums in the future still or be moved to korax-heritage.com as independent forums? I'd appreciate your opinions, pros and contras on this. p.s. to the first person who starts to talk about something else on this thread than my question: FUCK YOU!!!

Perhaps it should be moved to Korax's Heritage. Quite frankly, these projects are mods being made by you guys for another raven game and it wasn't really made By Raven itself. Korax's Heritage is a hosted site, right? In that case people who get confused should be guided over there for these individual forums. You would have to create another Html form for the Korax forums, but I'm not a Developer [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]

I think a great addittion would be an ability for us to have avitars/little pictures under our names to respresent ourselves more thourough. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I got another opinion...that will double my work of browsing through all the forums...if I have to go to another site to get within this one... But...OTOH, I can?t disagree with Billy...he?s right RambOrc.This forum is totally diferent from the others... Another POV is that fewer ppl will came here if it was elsewhere... I really dunno...lemme think about it...

I think that it should be moved to Korax' Heritage page. [ May 05, 2002: Message edited by: J.P. ]</p>

Not one single part. I have an idea what you might have meant and will answer accordingly, but I might be totally wrongs, so if you see that I talk about something entirely different than you do, then just explain to me once again. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img] Regarding the first paragraph, it seems to me like you'd assume RavenGames.com is an official Raven Software site and these forums would be in any way official? It's not so, not at all. I don't get what you mean with Korax' Heritage being a hosted site? In a certain sense, all sites on the web are hosted somewhere. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img] Do you mean it's hosted by Raven Software? No. Do you mean it's hosted by the RavenGames network? In a certain sense it's true, as it's part of the community and it's hosted by me, but technically seen, it's hosted by the Orcish Web as it's on a different server than RavenGames.com and its hosted sites. Confusing? [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] And I completely move around in darkness as to regarding the rest of your post. What kind of confusion? What HTML form?

Well *I* am now even more confused. [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

What's the new domain ? [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] If the new changes are bad then it might be better, that you guys would put the korax boards to korax-heritage.com [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] btw Is Ravengames.com connected officially to Raven software `? In any case, IMHO it would be better idea to make them independent boards on korax-heritage.com (Since the site doesn't seem to have forums.)

RavenGames.com is independent of Raven Software. The reason the Korax boards went online on these forums was that a UBB license is for one domain only and back at that time I didn't know what I now do (i.e. that the open-source free boards are at least as good as UBB). The other reason was that maybe some people who visit the RavenGames forums will find the Korax forums and through it the Korax site (but up to this day the opposite happens rather).

Okay, I think the best solution for you is... (dramatic music) to put Korax boards on to web pages which are fastest. Seriously, these boards are really slow.

It doesn't seem slow to me.

Sir Billiam

The Thing that REALLY annoys me is that my Internet Explorer has no back button, and when This dumb thing decides to cancel my entry, it tells me to Push My individual backbutton to get back to it! URGGG!!!! [img]images/smiles/icon_mad.gif[/img] One time I wrote like, 4 paragraphs worth of stuff but it canceled it 'Cuz there were 2many Smilies, so I had to type it over again [img]images/smiles/icon_mad.gif[/img] !

Col.J.P.

I think I got what he said...he?s just saying that this forum you?re wanting to move concerns only mods not officialy linked to Raven, and not the Raven games in itself...so it should be OK to move it to a satelite, if it stayed connected to this site. So in this way ppl wont get confused... [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I?m a little confused, but the kid does?nt appear to be... [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Col.J.P.

What do you mean Billy? All IE got back buttons...What version are you using? Strange... The best thing to do RambOrc, is to move the boards...Ravengamesdotcom is going to be a little crippled...but I think we can make it... [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

Fastest? If you have speed probs, it has 2 possible reasons: bad connections from you to the server (which you can confirm if you go to RavenGames.com and browse a couple of pages and have the feeling it's slow), and --- UBB. This crap of a software uses Perl which is already not a very good idea when there are a lot of calls, but it doesn't even have a database in the background, it uses flat text files for everything. The larger and more popular a UBB board, the slower it gets. What do you mean, why do I want to convert it into another format? I want a PHP-driven solution with a MySQL database behind it. UBB (and other Perl-based boards) are BTW way slower on older browsers like Netscape 4. As for the original question of this topic, it seems pretty much everyone agrees with going to the Korax domain, so I'll move it over there (it will be estimatedly in a couple of weeks).

Slow? I wouldn't say that, this is actually the fastest forum I've ever been at. You can compare this to the evil forums over at Lucasforums.com which can take as much as 5 minutes to load... grrr, I hate dialup. Anyway, I personally think the forums should remain a part of the Ravenforums as they do now. Making them separate only makes things redundant. -Remi

Remi, take a peek at http://x.ravenclans.com/forum/ to see PHPBB in action on this server. It should be WAY faster for your dialup than this one here using UBB. Anyway, there is now one vote against the move, so I'm still waiting with the final decision. Come on people, bring more arguments and opinions. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Hmmmm... have your forum colours as bright as that and I'll personally rip your head off [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote

If I'm allowed to vote more I'd be happy to have something like a few dozens votes against [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img] But really, I don't see much advantage having them apart. Having them at one place makes it more visible for people, you only have to register once and blah blah blah... for instance, Lucasforums.com is a forum central for at least twenty sites but still it's just one forum branched into lots and lots of er... sub-forums. I really like their style, it makes things easier. The only bad thing is their horrendous speed. Another good example is forumplanet.com ... although they may have done an overkill. -Remi

Well the colors of the new forums will be pretty much those you can see on www.ravencommunity.net and www.ravenclans.com <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote

I'm pondering this idea anyway, I mean I've got a lot of hosted sites who'd want a forum, and it might be easier to have them all on one software.
