Yeah, gotta hate that... If you delete a few php files in the mod it might probably work. But pretty sure it's against their TOS. Maybe not. We should also read it.

That would suck. Imo a theme that works well on mobile should be better than Tapatalk. Make the theme UA based so that the user can request the desktop version too. I'll give it a try at one point (kinda like wptouch for WordPress).

I absolutely hate mobile special themes as they are quite clunky and they don't the whole expeirenceyou could have with a responsive design where you could keep all the features of the desktop site.

I don't mean a stripped down version don't worry. I might consider making the current theme responsive though. :)

A mobile theme would be pretty nice. That could maybe even replace Tapatalk if done well.

The forum would check the useragent to check if you're on mobile and put the mobile theme by default and you can always request the desktop theme instead. And anyway mobile browsers have a "View desktop version" option.

As long as the current theme remains intact on desktop view I am fine with your ideas.

Heheh, that's responsive is for! Keeping UI/UX for desktop and giving a better for mobiles. Aaanhway, you said that editing style on a SMF was hard because it doesn't give acces easily to the style. How will you manage to do it?

It gives easy access to CSS, but to change navigation links you must edit subs.php or something.

Wait are we really gonna hit 1000 posts in under a month? My original projection for jan 1st was 1000 on opening day. O.O.

But again, I was originally planning to not invite anybody else than the staff until December 1st. Also the original plan was that if by Jan 1st we had under 1K we would wait until we reach it before opening.

Thanks to everyone so far.

Hehe, everyone likes when everything goes better than expected.

(inb4 we didn't even launched yet and we're more active than Omnimaga)

Edit: Wait, we are? I did the math and for the 18 days since the site creation until I write those lines:

Omnimaga posts: 1080
Omnimaga topics: 62
Codewalrus posts: 892
Codewalrus topics: 55
Number of days CW's been more active than Omni: 6 (33%)

Way to go, guys.

Although if this site really takes off then it wouldn't hurt to use it later to send some ppl to Omni (assuming staff is still around there). After all if we get ppl asking for ASM or Axe help, sometimes we might not always be able to help.

Ok, so one feature idea I had since a long time ago on Omnimaga was so that the rating system would be tied directly with the "Report to Moderator" feature. I added this suggestion to the todo list because I might not be able to code such thing, but it would be nice to have in a not-so-distant future.

Here's how it would work:

-When voting a message up, it would increase the post and user Karma normally.
-However, in order to vote a message down, you would need to report it to moderators ("Report to Moderator" link would be replaced with a downvote button), where a reason would be given.

Because currently, if we force people to give a reason for voting, it makes the report system redundant and it also discourages people from voting messages up since it takes too long.

I disabled voting reasons for now but I will enable it again later if people abuse it after the site opens.
