Thanks for your patience.

We use Geesee at the other forum. But we have no problems with impersonations or anything, and people at that forum are jerkish.

If you make an account, no one can impersonate you, if you use your username. If you dont make your account, someone can impersonate you, but you could just tell everyone you havent joined chat. You could put something in your siggy, saying you havent joined chat. And everyone would know.....


but if we connect it to the user database no one needs to register or worry about impersonations.

And its been a month now.
While on the otherhand, you can trust the people who browse this forum. Their really doesnt seem to be trolls or any bad users like that. I mean, there doesnt even seem to be that many people.
And the pass, makes it so that only these forum browsers, can get into the room.

But im starting to understand that their wouldnt be a point in a chat. Not enough users on this forum, that there would usally be enough people online at the same time to make chat conversations that good.
Truth is: Texas sucks.

*coughs* Hello there... I was just wondering, would it be possible to give this site some kind of skin? Like... Header, special buttons for the forums and such? I'm in another forum that uses phpBB 3 and we have a decent Forum skin there. I could contact the admin over there and ask if they could assist us.

Uh well this is kinda our style.. We're just having a bit of an issue with the damn header, if you want you could design us some nice fitting buttons and I'll look into installing them though.

I think that the Cash mod (http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=94055) would be a cool addon. I am a member of a forum where you make a small amount of money for each post (assuming it's a serious post) and you can buy virtual stuff, give money to other people, pay them to make stuff for you (i.e. signatures and avatars) etc.
But perhaps that wouldn't work very well for this forum. What do you think?

Profile comments modification.

I don't use phpBB3 (I actually hate using the software) so I can't confirm if it works, but I guess you could try it on a test board or something.

Can we have a drawing contest? Like "draw something that reprosents the love dilema between Artemis Holly and Minerva" and the winner could have his or her's picture diplayed on the opening page to this forum. Just an idea I thought would be fun. :laughing:

Not for the picture being displayed - but if you can get enough people interested then I would love to run a competition.

I could post it at the bottom of the forum on the front page, that wouldn't be a problem. :D
