There is one mod for that feature on the SMF mod site, but it's not (yet?) suitable for this version of SMF. I'll aks in the forums if it's going to be made suitable for this version, but don't keep your hopes up.

Also, pay me the $180~something for a vB license and make vB awesome (code and functionality-wise) and I'll install that on here instead, :monster:.

Perhaps I should, but I cba right now, :monster:. Besides, this site costs me lyk €30 a year on its current host, and unless it gets busier, it'll remain that way for quite a while.

Although I should note that bandwidth consumption for this site is up to 5 GB for this month alone, FFOF got locked out at 13 GB (which was quite a while ago btw, might be quite higher nowadays, but I dunno). But we'll see.

Right now, I can manage financially, so there's no need for donations just yet, :monster:. If a financial injection is needed however, I'll first try to get it done by donations, then if that isn't enough, I'll add ads and whatnot, fgj.

Also, this topic doesn't belong in Active Projects, it's reserved for TLS projects and not forum-specific feature requests, which belong in Suggestions & Questions. movéd.

I was wondering why it hadn't been moved earlier. I didn't noticed the suggestions section when I made this post. :P

But I dunno, setting up donations beforehand might be a good idea. You don't want to find yourself to suddenly be stuck in a bind and desperate. There might not be enough cash flow. Best to save up now IMHO. *is paranoid of another SY repeat*

There is that, I'm sure TLS will continue to grow for quite some time, wouldn't be bad if some financial backing was thar.

On that, do you lot want full openness about TLS.net's financial status if this goes through, or do you simply not care? I don't care, that's for sure :monster:.

I'd only care if it was going to be a problem and if you needed help, like Tennyo was saying. I also agree with her that getting donations now might help for problems in the future, cause you never know when money might suddenly become tight, and a whole bunch of us would have wished we could have given a little each to help out.

I don't remember who it was (maybe it was you Yop?), but someone I remember kept offering to buy AC.net. Depending on who it was it may or may not have worked, but why didn't SY ever go for it since she didn't really seem to care by the end?

But yeah, without usernotes people will just be forced to flirt with Tenny on the open forums :-\

That was Edman, he's actually got the whole internets businessman act going on.

I'm not sure why she declined his offer(s) though (both buying it and offering his programming / maintenance services at no cost earlier on), I think he explained the buying thing back on FFOF (should look that up), but I'm fairly sure it comes down to SY not trusting anyone with 'her' ACF and Edman being a Latvian cunt that has been involved in quite some dramahz through the years, at least the early ones - he quit caring about the later ones. If the abbreviations LFF or LOCP ring a bell, that would be Edman & co. Past tense btw, relations between the LOCP crew and Edman went down the shitter a few years ago due to I can't remember what.

I don't know who this Edman person is that Yop was talking about but I remember Gabriel making many offers as well. He was quite obsessed with the idea for a while.

I haven't seen you flirt with me yet.

Oh yeah, there was him too. Edman made the offer later, I think.

Either way, both of 'em purchasing the site would lead to better leadership, but probably also the adding of more advertisements (at least Edman would). I'm also inclined to believe that Edman would probably sell it for profit again within a month or so - at least that's what he did for FFRepublic.

Edman's not on horrible terms with LOCP anymore btw, but he barely posts there these days. Then again he barely posts anywhere, and everyone barely posts at LOCP these days.

also, usernotes would be nice.

Plx keep an eye out on this thread, there's a profile comments (=usernotes) mod, but it's not compatible with the current version of the software.

'course, we could just go to vB, fgj.
