Changes to the forum - looking for proposals
« on: August 17, 2014, 12:26:23 PM »

Bitsapphire is currently looking to add certain small features to the current forum.

The following three are planned to happen within the next 1-2 weeks:
  • Add a PTS and BTSX price ticker to the header of the forum
  • Make all outgoing links on the forum nofollow. This way we won't be as attractive to spammers and Google most likely ranks us better.
  • Change the current URL structure to something human readable (the current links would redirect to the new links, nothing gets lost). This is for both legibility and better search ranking.

We also plan to have unobtrusive bitsapphire delegate voting buttons instead of advertisements on the forum.

Let us know what you would like to change on the forum!

Mmh. I doubt we can pull that off in this old forum software. Should be relatively simple with Discourse though.

Great idea!

I dont know whether this is possible but it would be cool to have type of thread where people can vote posts up and down. Application: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=6901.0

The forum replaces any url scheme that isn't  http:// or ftp:// with http. Would be nice to use btsx: scheme. I think gamey started work on this, but might not be easy with this software.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

If you switch to Discourse is it possible to still use old style BB for up to 90 days( for example) while members get used to to new forum software.

So esentially have a choice to use either forum for up to 90 days, then switch everyone to Discourse when 90 days expire

How about having a ticker at the top with the current dividend APR ?

Do not go to discourse... Simple Machines is known, familiar, and such a massive change would surely drive off people.

I prefer Discourse. Discourse is a better long term decision.
