NorthwestTekno!

Welcome to the new NorthwestTekno!
So after months of planning (literally – originally this was supposed to go up in May), the new NorthwestTekno site is finally up! The main goals for this upgrade were to get a site that doesn’t crash our server, looks great, and has a whole bunch of new features. I think we made it!

Obviously, things look very different now. But fear not, it’s the same old board, wrapped in a new candy shell. There’s lots of new stuff for you to find, but let me introduce you to the biggies:
  • Forum split – The major change in the forums is that they’ve bit split in two – “the culture” and “the people”. The idea is to seperate the music and scene-related stuff from the classifieds and OT stuff, and hopefully to bring the focus back on the former.
  • Classifieds – The other major change is to the classifieds section (SO, Friends, Buy/Sell, and I Saw You). These are no longer discussion forums, and will run more like classified ads in a newspaper. You will be able to post, but no one will be able to reply to your post. They will have to contact you directly for more information.
  • Screen names – You can no longer change your screen name at will, because it’s really annoying. Everyone’s names have been reverted to their login name. If you would like to change your name, email me, and I’ll do it for you when I can.
  • The calendar – If you click the little calendar icon in the navigation, you’ll find our super-swanky new calendar system. There isn’t much there now, but any events that get posted to the upcoming forums will automatically be added there too, so you’ll have a one-stop-shop for finding out what’s happening!
  • Private messaging – Now you can send private messages to other users of the boards by clicking the “pm” button under their post, or by looking up their profile. When you receive a private message, you’ll get an email telling you so. Or, if you change your preferences, you can get a little popup box as you’re browsing the site!
  • Preferences and profile – Definitely check out the preferences link at the top of the page. Update your profile (if you put in your birthday, it will appear on the calendar!), and edit your options (my favorite one is to hide people’s signatures).
There’s lots more for you to discover (most of which can be learned by clicking the “faq” link above), so feel free to play around. Please let me know what you think in the “Questions, Comments, and Bugs” forum. Also let me know if anything weird or unexpected happens – there are bound to be some bugs to work out.

Also, to give credit where it’s due, I should say that my friend Gannon “I can only be killed by the silver arrow” Mooney did the graphic design for the site, with me playing art director. Sid Spencer also helped by making a cool script to backup to the database, so we’ll be okay if anything disastrous happens.

I guess that’s about all for now… happy boarding!

Some of the changes are whack!
I don’t think I like some of these changes.

First the color is disgusting, it looks like baby crap.

I understand why we can’t reply to the classified section posts anymore, but I don’t like it.

Um, PMing is cool.

*bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch*
look! i did a bunch of useless, unconstructive bitching so nobody else has to! i saved everyone else from saying that the color is ugly and they want to reply to the i saw you’s. wasnt that nice of me?

i think its a billion times improved. it looks like a real website now even. i like vb a lot better than ubb, it just seems better layed out and easier to use in general.

josh, you spent a lot of voluntary time on this and you certainly didnt have to, and i think it turned out very nicely.

it will definitely take some getting used to. i don’t like the pea soup color… blue was better… but, cant have everything. otherwise, some of the improvements are cool, like the little PM things.. thats kinda neat. and i dunno if its me on crack, but the turntable pic on the upper banner is all blocky and looks weird, like it didn’t finish d/l’ing all the way.

I feel loved.
People like me so much.

I didn’t mean to seem bitchy. I even said that I like an improvement. And now that I’ve been using the board a little more since the improvement I like it even more.

welp, just read the intro (and some replies) to this so far…

hey, this screen where I am typing…it’s larger and I can fit in more words than the previous one. This is good for a person like me who posts oogles upon oogles of philosophical yap yap from time to time. I like this! 

This face right here looks funny =>  hehe…it looks like the “I’m about ready to give head” face now.

I’ll go explore the rest and perhaps edit this. I feel slightly dislocated due to the change so far. But I think it’s something I’ll get used to shortly. 

-jacob

p.s. oh cool! I can preview my reply!

[le edit]

ohhhhh mah gaw!!!

this is kew!

dig what I can do now. I can express myself more with colors and size. Thumbs up from me!

holy turntables…im gonna be up all night playing with this new version!

testing…does this font work?
