    With consideration to most of us having no free time but to post to talk and spam threads, shall I change the RP forum's status to a 0-forum (off the forum index) for the time being?

    I would say to leave it, if only to remind us it's there.

    I think YOSC, in its current state, might be better served with a Vanilla-style board on the homepage. No more forums, just tags. It's a more modern type of taxonomy. Check it out:

    http://vanillaforums.org/

    I can convert all the user accounts and previous posts and such.

    And the best part is that it wouldn't even take long.

    Thoughts?

    I think it's worthy of consideration based upon what I have seen (in addition to knowing the current traffic and usership of the board), however I feel somewhat hesitant of doing a full conversion. May we do a disposable test drive to just get a feel for it?

    Go ahead, play around. Admin login:

    Just temporary, of course.

    This is kind of fun.

    Is it the kind of fun that screams, "let's switch YOSC over to it?!"

    I have identified some lacking features over on the Vanilla. I assume they are easy to implement?

    Well, probably, right?

    Sorry I missed this. You know how it is. Checking now.

    Looks like this is the list of features you've identified as problematic/missing:

    * 8000 char limit
    * bbcode
    * image embed
    * customization??
    * captcha

    I'll make sure to get this stuff in when I do the install. I also noticed it wasn't sending out forgot-password stuff. And the captcha thing is broke.

    EDIT: Never mind about the password thing. It just went in my spam folder. That almost never happens. I forgive you, Gmail.

Howdy, Stranger!
