It's about time.  I completely gave up on this site, until the email flashed.

Anyways...can't say I like the new style.  One of the things I liked about the old forum is how it looked, of course.  And, this one runs a wee bit slow...but, if it's getting back up, I won't complain.

Oh good, looks like the email got out ok, and you didn't have trouble logging in.

The old bbs was vBulletin which would cost a pretty penny to bring back to life. The only alternative under consideration is phpbb, which we planned on trying out as well. But the conversion to SMF seemed to keep everything with a little monkeying around, so I'm inclined to skip on the hassle of it all.

I prefer this forum if only because it expands to fit the width of the browser viewport intelligibly, which isn't saying much, but that is in practical terms a major bonus.

The look is simply the default with the background borrowed from the old forum. I think maybe loading the graphics plastered all over the page (paneling) might be a bit rough on bandwidth, but I'm willing to wait and see how well the caching performs. It is kinda in keeping with the high-gloss look of the main site.

As for the slowness, the thru-put has been lurching for most of the evening for the last couple hours. I'm tempted to guess it is temporary, but I can't comment on the physical state of the server. If it is slower, it is likely the server and not the bbs suite (after all the graphical paneling is loaded up that is)

This is all brand new, anything is pretty much up in the air atm. Stay tuned, and feel free to participate.

What I meant by style was the user stats being on top of the post, rather than on the left-hand side of the post.

I don't have much experience with Simple Machines...but, shouldn't all forums be able to do that?

We can definitely look into customizing the theme later if this becomes a top priority.

Actually little if any of what a bbs suite does is about the page layout, though the default presentation definitely influences these things in practice. 

At any rate, it's good to hear this is your only major complaint so far :D

Jose is still holding the keys. His involvement the last few weeks has been substantial, though the last few days I haven't heard from him. He emailed me out of the blue after he finally felt his internet access was secured. His account on the BBS was deleted it seems. He must've done that himself, otherwise I dunno.

He's told me he is playing Persona 4 and might be recording his play thru for youtube style documentation purposes. Or he asked me if that sounded like a good idea. So I guess you could say he's not completely disinterested in Megaten.

I think he's collected a lot of stuff for the yet unpublished demonary section of the main site. Please fill me in on anything else you were working on Emilio. You can PM me, or better yet just make a post about it if you don't mind. I prefer everything in the open as much as possible.

PS: +1 Karma to everyone for showing interest  :P

Just like, yksehtniycul said, I gather and help Tony with the Demonary project, I was working with all that Data, gathering info, pictures, demons stats, etc. (That's why I opened a topic with a lot of Megaten ripps, I wanted to share the same pictures I was using with the demonary) I never had moderator or administrator permission, just to a "special" section of the forum, where all the moderators/administrator could talk about the site, some news and some members. I was told not to tell anyone but I guess at this point it doesn't matter. Jose told me if I wanted to be a moderator of the site, but a couple of days after I received the PM the place was closed :(

That was my major role, the Demonary and if you don't mind I want to keep helping with it.  ;)

EDIT: I can show you the same "Weekly Reports" I send to Tony of the Demonary. It's just an Excel document with info and pictures of each demons separated in games.

I'll try to focus on getting the demonary section up and running asap. My only major concern is the names used for the devils in it, which will have to be argued about a bit. There's no reason why everyone can't be adding to the demonary if they wish.

I'll try to look into the news side of things as well if someone would like to volunteer to feed news to the site, after the bbs is back in gear.

I'll make a post for moderators to nominate themselves in. We won't appoint any until the bbs officially re-opens however. Remind me if I forget.

Moderators won't have too much power. The new policy will be hands off as possible as long as I have say so.

If that's the case, you'll need some of my goodies Emillio.  ;)  Somewhere, in some dark murky corner of my PC there's a whole depository filled with various Megaten media and scans.

Also...just to know...what did you mean by "paranoid?"  >:(

That would be cool, thanks. Just let me know, and maybe we can share things, it's just I like to give something in exchange when someone wants to lend me a hand ;) , let's say it's "Equivalent Exchange" :D
