Some Stuff

Hello everyone, I know I'm not on here a ton due to school, but I have some updates to announce.

In the next month or 2 months, I will be transitioning to a private server. What does that mean for TQC? It will be down for probably an hour to a day. It depends on how fast the transfers go and how quickly I can get the database back up and running. No data should be lost, so all of your posts up until the downtime should be there still. The benefit? Much, much better performance, which means I can finally update software and it will work.

After I get the server transitioned, I will be working on software. Since everyone here likes SMF (the current software), I will base the updates off of that. It will have a very similar look and feel, but it will be smoother and add a lot of functionality.

What will be added?
  • More emoticons. Widely request, I'll import a lot.
  • Improved chat. No more glitches, I hope. Saving colored fonts, private chats enhanced, and any other requests.
  • Chatbox integration on multiple pages (elite only). Elite members will be able to configure their chatbox to appear on the homepage, forum pages, post pages. They can also choose whether it appears at the top or bottom of the page. So that's cool.
Any other requests, please post below. I will consider all of them! I know I am not on a lot, but I have alotted time for the updates, so that will be transitioned quickly. Also, I will post beta access in the Elite Forums when I get them up and running, so the new software will be visible to elites before it's launched, and I will have direct-input from you guys.
Thanks! Keep on keepin' on!

Is said private server going to increase operational costs any?
 
I don't necessarily prefer SMF over any of the other untested programs.  I just wasn't fond of the change-over to the other one that was tried back in the summer.  It was buggy and had a more awkward feel to navigating.  At least SMF is true to its name sake, simple.

Yes, a dedicated server will cost more than double the current operating costs, but I have a website currently running that is making enough to pay the bills alone, plus I just got funds from elite member renewals at the beginning of the year, so it's a move that is needed.

I will play with the other software on the dedicated server (it's still online, just not live) and see how the thing runs.

I also installed tapatalk on my phone, so I'll be browsing much more now! What a cool app.

Make sure that this is a smart move before making it.  We don't need TQC to become any sort of a financial drain.
 
Otherwise, sounds like a good move!

No worries, I have some other plans with the server that will help offset the cost. Making TQC better is one of the many benefits of having the dedicated server. Stay tuned :-)
