Title: Ask not what your forum can do for you, but what you can do for your forum
Post by: KiLRoy on February 09, 2016, 12:17:01 pm
Just had a chat with Matt.

Plan is to do another migration early next week (Matt is away on business till Sunday) to a test environment.  Then have an active 7d-10d dev/test cycle on the test environment to sort out issues.  Matt wil run and issue list where things get reported and feedback given around fixes.  Fixes will either be done on this environment, after we migrate to PROD or in a next phase (eg ads and shop).  Focus is on getting the forum part migrated, not new functionality ito add-ons.

I will set-up a test group for this before we migrate.  We need active involvement during this 7-10 period to sort out as many issues as possible on test.

Who are available to help, starting say next week Wednesday?

If you are keep to help with testing and bug finding, plse indicate in this thread.  A bit of IT knowledge is beneficial, but not necessary.

This is an opportunity for all the people who bitch and moan about the issues on this version of the forum to put up their hands and do something about it.

Mens fix dit deur aktiewe moderating. Tight moderating in the technical sections, but less so in JouMa.  The idea of JouMa is to talk kak.  Also use the 'report to moderator' button when you feel agrieved

Are you still going to help test?

I know this is of topic.

Why is it not possible to download pictures as in FB, an easy affair?  To do a rr will be as easy as pie.  At this stage it is a helluva effort to do a proper rr, so much so that I, and I think alot of others just don't bother. 

Just asking.   :peepwall:

Just to touch base here, migration and upgrade went ok. Took a looooooong time but that part is done.

Testing has begun and I'm working as closely as I can with all the testers - thanks again to all you who have contributed your time to helping me out here with some good feedback. It is really appreciated.

It's because of the way the forum software is designed and the limitations it put forward.

That said, I've begun developing a ride report system that I am hoping to plug in here so that we can really make the ride reports look good and work.

(KilRoy remind me to talk to you about this...)

100%, it was always our intention to make the creation of RR as simple and stress free as possible.  Kind of like a content management system with proper tags and indexing.

Hi all, sorry for the quiet. It's been quite the ride this year with the drama.

That said I'm back on the ball and hope to finalise my updates and review the changes requested this week. I'll keep you all posted.
