Question for the community..
«: May 11, 2009, 03:20:04 PM»
The problem that I am facing is that the creator of the blog system in place on our forums has discontinued updates and support for it, which means that I cannot update the forums to SMF2.0 so long as we continue to use it. Additionally, the portal system in use on this site is not available for SMF2.0 and may not be for the conceivable future.

Sp, I pose a question to the FAZ community..

Would you rather keep the blogs in place and continue using the current site as-is?

or

Would you rather lose the blogs (until a new alternative blog is found) and upgrade the forums to SMF2.0 and update the themes? The themes would be almost the same as FAM with a change in the logo essentially.

Please let me know so I can determine which direction to take the site.

(Also note that the gallery will have an update soon with a lot of new features/fixes that I hope you enjoy!)

The portal will still be here. It'll just be portaMX (like FAM) instead of TinyPortal. I may have to manually move the downloads over to the new portal.

Just as a side suggestion: add a Blog text field on the Profile pages--this way, if they still want a freakin' blog, they can go register on Blogspot and link to it in their profiles.

I like Blogspot for the fact that you can root around in the base code for the pages. :D

though this seems to be the general consensus and doesn't necessarily need to be repeated, i say you lose the blogs. i didn't even realize we had them.

I think we can safely go without the blogs. I don't use it as much as I thought I would. I mostly forget about them, unfortunately. :x

And there are definitely enough other places to blog.

I think vast majority of users think the opposite. FAZ is the ugly site and always has been.

lol I agree with this too, FAZ has been much easier on my eyes than FAM's new dark layout.

but I do think the blogs are pretty useless, so like everyone else, wouldn't mind them being gone.

There IS a lighter theme for FAM, you know. ;) You can change it on the homepage on the left side.

"rather lose the blogs (until a new alternative blog is found) and upgrade the forums to SMF2.0 and update the themes" - Has my vote.
