Ok,

In an effort to motivate my lazy @$$, I think we should start discussing more wiki related tasks.

I think we need a *new* approach, we should start by getting the very basics up and running. The basics that are needed by the members to maintain the same level of functionality as we have today on this board.

So to me this means, I NEEEEEEED to get a good chat program working on the wiki. Besides that I see just some other minor clean up which included items like admin private posts information, which currently the lastest forums posts modules displays to all users, even though members will not be allowed to view the actual post. It also means some basic image/graphics changes to make it *BGDF* look and feel.

Besides that we need content, but I think content can be done after the move to the wiki. And may we can set up a schedule for what content should be populated and work on one at a time.

I think if we where using the new wiki site, it would promote eveyone on working in it!

I agree. Let's get going! One of the things that's a problem right now is communication. Let's just communicate here until we get comfortable communicating there.

Skye call notes

Dave and I had a Skype call tonight and this is what we discovered needs to be done in order to have the wiki go live:

Restore Banner Logo
restore top menu. header/footer
implement Chat - probably X7, maybe SpChat.
Admin posts filtered on the main page.
Disable e-mail in X7 chat (remove Send Mail link)
PHPBB parallel install
setup Backup / restore
clean up tests.
finish user's guide
lockdown main content
setup user page template

We've decided that our main priority right now is getting the chat online, and fixing the graphics, and filtering out the admin posts from the new post listings on the front page. After that gets done, we'll try and clean things up as much as possible and then invite people to test it out for a trial period, analyze the feedback and then move forward from there.

Any thoughts? Let us know if you want to be included in the next Skype call. Version 2.0 now has a nifty conference call feature.

Could you post the link to the wiki one more time? I never know which thread it's contained in, and I'm pretty sure the bookmark I have to it is now invalid.

Thanks!

Thanks! I see there is no content yet in the "Player Goals" section of the design area. I can write those articles, but it will take me a few days, and I'll need someone to post them for me.

I don't think I can assist with the technical stuff, but hopefully I can get some content together that will assist the launch.

Jeff that would be great! Would you like to learn how to edit the wiki? If so just email me and we can discuss what you need to know. If you dont really have time to learn the wiki syntax just email me the content you want to have put online and I will take care of it!

Thanks for the help!!!

Jeff,

Yeah thanks for your willingness to add content. The more stuff that gets added, the better.

Update:
I've installed phpbb on the new server to act as an archive for all the forum posts from this site. I'm backing up the posts from this site now and will try to restore them on the new site. Once I get this process nailed down, it will be one less step towards moving to the migration to the new site.

-Michael

P.S.

Dave I saw that you had copied SpChat to the new site, do you want me to go ahead and complete the installation? Do you need any more information to do you job? I.E. do you have access to cpanel, ftp and my generic MySQL logins?

I usually use these credentials to access MySQL databases:

username:
bgdf625_admin
password
john316

Of course you need to add the user to the DB in Cpanel.

Cpanel access:
http://67.15.188.23/cpanel/

login:
bgdf625
pw:
gameadmin

The ftp credentials are the same as above.

Let me know how I can help!

I was hoping to have more time to contribute to the Wiki too, but it hasn't worked out so far.

Mind you, I'm currently fighting the urge to post irrelevant stuff everywhere as my posting total creeps nearer the 1k mark*. I was wondering if the Wiki would come on line before I managed it ;-)

(*yes, I know I've probably passed it already, thanks to hack attacks losing things, but that doesn't count.)

Great to see the rock starting to roll again! Unfortunately, I won't be able to help until some time in mid-to-late February.

Argh... I'm currently trying the establish the process for backing up the BB here and restoring them to a stand alone PHPBB on the new site. It's not going well. Argh. If I get a "Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet'" error one more time I'm going to scream!
