Is KKW better since the server/forum changeover?

To be honest I'd say no. For those of you who were regulars over at the old forums back in the good old days of the .com would know, the KKW forum is the pride of our litle establishment. It used to be buzzing with activity and also funny. Since the changeover however things seem to have changed for the worse, the forums are filled with unfunny spam, people are posting crude remarks about Keira and the overall experience is less appealing to newcomers

The point of this thread was to enable you to voice your opinion and to see whether you agree and ulitametly help decide whether a few changes are needed.

Dont spam this thread, you have the rest of them for that it seems, if you have nothing to add, vote on the poll and leave it at that.

Nope (no offense). There's more spam and all it seems to be is Underated/Overated threads (no offense). We need more discussion. The only place right now that there seems to be discussion is the sex forum.

It's due to the influx of new members, and the fact that the recent premiere of King Arthur brings in unwanted attention to the forums. We just have to take the good with the bad, I suppose. The IRC actually is active now on more time periods than previously. But other than that, I find that the new forums are just slightly less secure and less comfortable than the old. Sure, we had our unwanted elements back in the old days (i.e., Aldera), but now a lot of what people post end up being spam or spam-like.

I hope that it moves toward a better environment. We just need to keep at it.

Although I never really saw a lot of the old forum, I would agree that this new one is sort of newbish in a way, So many people spamming, in my opinion, the mods should come down on it hard, with 2nd offences carrying a 24 hour ban, all rules should be enforced to the max, if it continues, a life ban is imposed, if they come back (Dynamic IP) you could PM the server admin and have him deal with them to there ISP’s.

Thats just my view, If I was in charge I would have 24 hour bans for any spam, do it again and you're gone. I think thats a bit rough though.

Do you know how many times Haz would be banned?

When someone breaks a rule, a Moderator should kindly guide them towards the rules and regs. If the member then continues to break a rule, or argue with a moderator, he/she should be banned for 24 hours. Kind of the way it was way back when.

I agree with Arch about the newbie thing. There are a lot of them spamming, a couple that I can name off the top of my head. The rule needs to be enforced a little more roughly than it has been, because no one's going to stop if you don't do something about it.

I miss all of my old posts, I had over 500. And I worked hard for it. Besides, there were many great threads I made back then and I can't remember what I wrote. But I am glad we have most of our old members back. Although, I miss The Black Rider & John Doe... JD's last comment to me was "Ah, Richard. My favourite member here", then he left. I actually saw The Black Rider on the Keira Forever forums, apparently he has chosen not to come back. Maybe he can't find the address. I think he thinks he's too good for us.

Poor Richard. Yes it is sad when you lose all your post count that you worked hard for, believe me, I know.

I didn't psot on the old forums, but I did read and the old forums were better. I have a theory to why. The phpBB software is mroe user friendly for a frum like this, but with the vB it is more complicated and proffessional and is not as 'warm'. As for the server, you cannot see a difference and the website is just as good as ever. Change the forums back to phpBB with a custom skin and you will notice the difference. more members, mroe posts and more fun.

After we just spent $80 on vB? I think not.
PHPBB was good and served us well. Time to move upwards.

I actually find this a LOT more user friendly, and it provides so many more options to work with. I LOVE it.

PS Baz, do I get my admin-ship yet?

Just my opinion... But after spending $80 I too would not change, but I am working for a company who is making their own forum board now if you are at all interested (www.FlaioSolutions.com).
