The dengine.net discussion forums have been migrated to a new platform. The old one, phpBB, was starting to really show its age and complexity so I made the decision to move to a better and faster one
. This should improve your experience here significantly:
- Pages load faster and many operations, like posting a new message, happen without page reloads.
- When writing posts and comments, drafts get autosaved so you don't ever lose your message (this actually happened to me several times with phpBB).
- There are a lot of nice design touches like autoexpanding text entry boxes.
- It is officially supported by the web hosting company, so I don't have to waste my time manually applying security updates, etc.
All of the old posts and user accounts have been migrated from the old forums. You may need to upload a new avatar image, though. Any URLs pointing to the old forums were redirected to the corresponding place in the new ones.
Over the coming days I will still be doing some fine-tuning. For instance, the mobile theme hasn't been customized yet with an appropriate color palette for the site. Let me know if you find anything that looks broken or illegible!
