Merging back with FSTDT
« on: January 16, 2017, 03:06:11 pm »
Since I'm in charge of FSTDT now, I am totally cool with this idea and all for it. What do you guys think?

For you admin'y and mod'y folks, wanna help me make this happen?

Fine by me, but I'll wait to hear what the others think.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I wouldn't mind.  Even if its just a link up at the top of the mainpage.  No real reason for a rename or anything.

I think it would be a good way to attract more users, as the main way people got interested in the forums before was through the mainpage.

For what my opinion is worth, I'm very much in favour of this.

Also, if there's any help you need from a computer illiterate like myself, just let me know.

I'm very much in favor of this for livening things up around here. I've been hoping for it since you and Rav worked things out with the mainpage.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

I'll add a Forums link back to the mainpage navigation bar later today.

Should we rename back to FSTDT Forums or subtitle (i.e., "FQA: The FSTDT Forums") to keep users from getting confused?

Also, if we're joining forces again, I'm still leaving modding this place up to you guys.

Edit: When I say "later today" (and I do quite a lot), it means "I'm on my tablet or phone ATM," not "I'm lazy right now." Usually.

I vote rename it. Might as well make the transition complete.

Keep some sort of indicator that this is FQA as well as the FSTDT forum, otherwise it'll look weird with the URL having fqa and no mention of fstdt.

Changing the subdomain (back) to fstdt.digibase.ca shouldn't be any trouble. I'll get in touch with Krad.
