I’ve noticed this in the dotTech Friends section, but it’s “Under Construction”. It’s been that way for a very long time. Anyone know what will be there?

There’s another forum post on this somewhere …  but anyway, from what I remember, windowseight.org is another site that Ashraf has the domain for but has never built out.

Ditto. I own the domain but don’t know what to do with it, hehe.

He has not considered my humble suggestion of simply putting forums there to decide what to do with it. ._.

It is not that I have not considered it. Rather, it is that if a forum is placed there, it would need to be moderated (otherwise it would be filled with spam). I don’t have time to moderate another website.

Moderators for dotTech yes. But for WindowsEight? Unless someone volunteers, I don’t have anyone to do it.

If you go with BBpress, you can optionally make it integrate with Wordpress.  You might even be able to integrate it so every user on dotTech has an account!  Surprised

Lol, Ashraf:

Meh

But think about it!  You might even be able to set up automatic login:  When you log into one, you log into the other!  Laugh

(The reason I say might is because I’m not sure if it works across domains)

Looking at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_forum_software_%28PHP%29 I would say that vBulliten deserves a chance.

vBulliten is the best, no doubt. But it costs $$$.

 Hey phoenix_rising

That’s so funny! Laugh

I was thinking the same thing. I thought it might be another word for what we put in the pool to balance the PH levels, ………or……..

for not telling the truth (ph i bb)!

Now, if we ever get an answer………
