So everyone knows, here is a little information about what is going on around the site:

FORUMS
------

1) I will be talking with both murta and NFGB this week about new possible moderators.

2) murta is going to be bumped to admin.

3) I'm working on a great new look for the forums. You guys should really love all the new features when it comes out http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

SITE
----

1) I've been working, by myself, on totally upgrading the site. It's coming along, but we have around 200 .HTML files to convert over. While I am working, its a slow processs - so hopefully I can be finished by the time I head to school.

2) If anyone is interested in posting news, we have ONE position open. To apply, e-mail me -> zeroxcape@escapemi.com

---

Overall, thanks for everyone's interest in this site. We have some great new features coming out in the middle of August and the new look should be up and running ASAP.

Peace,

Infopop sucks :|

When you see the new forums, you will REALLY like them. Trust me http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif It may be a few weeks before I can launch them though.

Let me just give you a list of features that the new board will support:

- Multiple user levels (not just monkey, 3 headed monkey, devil skull, secret.) We can have 50 if we want to.

- Avatars: little 70x70 images that go under your name.

- Private messaging: you can send a little message to anyone at any time.

- Imporved look: basically, the look will be much smoother.

- Cookied logins: You don't have to ever type in your login / password again if you choose not to.

- Better "Who's Online?" system.

- MUCH faster: Since the new boards use PHP and mySQL, you can search in seconds and blaze through the posts.

- Tons of extra little funtions: everything from simly faces to spell check.

Overall, the new boards should be great. I'll give everyone a sneak peek coming soon. If anyone wants, we could really use some small Monkey related icons http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

I made some MI smileys last week after the post on the Galactic Battlegrounds forum. They aren't too great though:
http://www.escapemi.com/murta/guy.gif
http://www.escapemi.com/murta/elaine.gif
http://www.escapemi.com/murta/dinghy.gif

I think nfgboy should do them

Rufio

the only thing wrong with making new smilies, is that its hella hard to make stuff really tiny, and going from big to really small distorts images...

i was working on some icons a few months back, and while they looked great fullsize, when i shrunk them to like 15x15 they were sooo not recognizable.

Zero, you should convert Escapemi.com to PHP or ASP right now. You wouldn't have to convert all that crap if you just had a database full of pages. Just a suggestion.

If we are going to have multiple user levels will you be able to keep out current amount of posts at the moment and start with the same number on the new forums.

As a thought, are you upgrading to a uBB 6 or are you changing to an entirely new system?

I don't think it is the same. The forums on milegend.com are powered by YaBB, which is CGI based. They'll most likely be vBulletin powered, like the forums at Galactic Battlegrounds (http://www.galacticbattles.com/), as Zero took quite a shining to them

Blondbeard: yes, everything stays the same
Deadmeat: you won't lose it
DeadEyeDave: Not exactly like MILegend.com
Guybrush112: Yes
MangusB: Yes, you can enter your own status...
Thripweed: New system. UBB 6 sucks, and we already voted "NO" on a UBB 6 change last month.
