The future of B5TV
 
I've been thinking for a while that I would upgrade B5TV from its steampunk system, if only because I feel an obligation to preserve some B5 history.

Now, with the latest news, I think it's even more important.

I would love to cover news, but I think I'm just too old and lazy now. That period of just pouring my life into a website is over! But the forums at least need a refit.

Stay tuned?

I kinda like the retro feel to things. Like you, Antony, I'm too old and lazy to learn new message board tricks.

I quite like the retro look to the forums too but the site needs to be tailored for use on phones etc so a reboot of the forums is probably necessary.

I have just been thinking we need a news website as well as a forum. I'd be interested in contributing.

The other issue is spam. I have turned off registration and they have to email for a password, which is not good long term.

Also it's not retro, it's vintage. This is proper 2001 beginnings. :) We didn't even have iPhones then.

You have a point. I'd just hate for it to get too complicated to use. I just came back after all lol

I'd use the same system I implemented at www.trekbbs.com if you want a preview :)

TrekBBS is still going? I thought that place was as dead as SlipstreamBBS lol

Good to know though. I think very few sites from that era are still up and running.

Personally, I love the old-school feel as it gives me nostalgia. But if you want new audiences then an upgrade is the way forward.

trek bbs looks fine to me, just keep the dark blue/purple theme here please. All the white hurts my eyes and I find black equally annoying.



Certainly a newer forum software would be more secure, and I'm guessing, also easier to administrate.
