Default TheHaloForum is Under New Management

As of today, I am now full owner of TheHaloForum.com. I’m not going to make a big parade out of this; here’s the deal. For the time being, things will remain largely the same as they have been. Moderators are not being replaced, rules are not being overhauled, and the site from a functionality standpoint will remain as it has since its inception in 2005. With that said, I’ll be happy to help support any improvements you as a community would like to implement. For example, if there is a strong initiative to get a new VBulletin theme created for the site, I am happy to give the necessary members access to the templating section of the Admin CP in order to get it done.

However, that does not mean that change is not in the pipeline. There will be more information in the coming weeks about what I have planned, but I would like time to coordinate with the current staff and get a timeline in place for everything. And since I recognize how standard PR that sounds, I’m not going to leave you guys without any details whatsoever. Here is a rough summary of what lies ahead. Please note: All of this is subject to change based on community suggestion and my availability as the primary developer.

- A complete rebuild of the site from the ground up, built on a more modern CMS platform that will allow for greater flexibility when implementing new features.

- A comprehensive videos archive that will serve as a portal for finding, watching, and rating videos released by the community. User upload capabilities will be included.

- Expanded forum interface and features, leveraging new tools and technologies that aim to provide a more enjoyable and customized experience for users.

- Site-wide mobile friendly user experience that will not require the use of 3rd party applications.

- A focus on social interaction between members and groups. Think calendars, events, etc.

There are going to be questions, I understand that. There is going to be skepticism, and I understand that too. This is not technically my first go at this (although the circumstances are a bit different). Ask your questions, I’ll do my best to answer them.

My only request right now (and for that matter moving forward) is that we refrain from referencing me as the leader of the third reich. While it does not particularly bother me at a personal level, I do think it is disrespectful to the Jewish community as it seems to mock the seriousness of the Holocaust, and is generally a distasteful thing to say in the first place.

I'm excited.

Will you be able to program a public uploader so we can have everyone upload to the forum youtube channel again? Like something I had going or something similar to what you had at FR? I'm not sure what you're capable of.

Although I noticed you mentioned this in a bullet point, could you go over it in detail? Is there anyway I can do to help with that?


WATCH MAI FINAL MAWNTAGE

I wonder how you managed to get complete site ownership. I'm interested to see what will happen.

Yes, for all intents and purposes, they're out of the picture.

I love Discourse, but that's not the current plan. Totally different environment that I'm not totally familiar with (runs on Ruby). We're looking at a more custom solution, but it's a ways off. In the meantime, we'll stay on VBulletin.
