SERVICE THREAD???

Postby wowie » 02 Sep 2013, 08:14

dont we have any forum service thread???
this should be pinned maybe here in the off topic section.

i have some strange loading issues with the site the last days.
trying to load and it finishs with an empty page. i have to reload it several times to get sth.

i just thought about doing a new forum maybe, where we can post youtube vids iE.
Of course would be sad to loose some threads
but its not really necessary, if this forum works properly.

what about donations, something we can inlcude into the service thread?

Well, this forum is not perfect, but it's free!

Me too, even if I'm the admin, I have some trouble loading the pages... but as any website, the server is down sometimes. :roll:

What do you mean about youtube vids? Some image preview??

And yes, I would be happy to receive donations, but... what for?!? :lol:

:D
if you have costs moving it or doing some extras, we could donate a bit.
there is this nice function in "new" forums that you directly embed the video in the post.
but i dont need it really. it just makes the forum a bit richer.

anyway, you should pin this service thread...
or delete it ;)

btw no loading issues at the moment :)

I was thinking about a facebook page for the Garden, but most of you are still without facebook, no?

Btw have you guys checked out the 'Flower Kings Appreciation Thread' on the Progarchives Forum? http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum ... ?TID=54797
It's so big I don't even know what to say :oops: Although it's good to see that this band is more praised than I usually thought they were :D 8-)

It's been a while since I've checked that thread, I made a few posts under the name swedish prog mafia, that's pretty much it.

'would that be a group page?' That's the idea ;)

I din't have facebook and plan on never having facebook. So i would have to miss out if the main connection of TFK fans was through facebook, but that would be my choice and my responsibility. I think we donated before a few years ago and i wouldn't mind a few pounds (euros or dollars even) to keep the forum going every now and then
Don't ask me, I'm just making it up as i go along

Thanks for that, progtastic mate, but then... this forum is absolutely free, and I don't know what I would do with more money...

If anyone has any suggestion, I'm listening!

Wowie... I have done some research, and... here's a little surprise for you...

[youtube]t7xzwO1CFoM[/youtube]

Yeah, now you have (and we ALL have) a video display for YouTube links!! 8-)

You only need to take what is after v= in the Youtube URL and place it between the new Youtube BBcode tags.

For example:
Code: Select all
[youtube]t7xzwO1CFoM[/youtube]


Is that what you were looking for?

Btw, this video is also surprising! and very new!!

Like Max, I use Facebook, and quite a lot too. Roine, Tomas, Hasse and Jonas are on there and I often take a look at their pages and post the odd comment. It is a useful tool if you don't abuse it, like anything. I do like this site too though. We lost a few people when we moved to this site from the previous one remember, such as Riverside who was a regular poster. (Unless he's on here under a different name!) With the imminent release of the new album, this site should become quite a bit busier soon, and may also attract new members. :)

Oh! I see!

Well, Canada is weird since 2006, because we have S. Harper (Conservative Party) as the prime minister. So they take decisions that are far away from my convictions. I'm really sorry about that!! :oops:

He should listen to more Flower Kings music, I think!! :roll:

Yes, everything seems to be possible: posts per page, topics per page, maximum length... etc.

What would be a good number then?
