[META] Is it possible to add more subforums?

Here http://xmrmonero.com/forum?  there is only general discussions. Can we add more like:

Mining

News

MEW

Cryptokingdom

Marketplace

Services

Projects

Offtopic

Meta

etc?

Yup, need more structure.

Also a feature request sub is needed.

for instance this is the second post in general for feature requests.

and I have another one.

We need a subscription feature to track topics.

Also I notice my thread has not been viewed at all I created last week? I wonder if this is a bug or if there hasn't been an admin online since then? If the latter that has to change as well.

I'm wary of creating a collection of empty forum. Placeholders are considered a bad practice. I'd much preferh ave a single forum with threads and once certain topic become recurrent, the thread get moved to a dedicated forum.

As for the subscription feature, I 'll add it back. It seems buggy though.

Presence of admin will change once there will be real traffic. Chicken-and-egg sort. I must admit the lack of traffic recently, especially considering the amount of work I put on the site, took a toll on my morale. Feedback like this one help to remotivated me, though :)

Notifications work! To be sure they are activated for you, go to your profile, then go to the notification tab. Check accordingly. For a while, I will leave 'notify for my own post" so that you create dummy comment and check you receive a mai notification. Once enoug people mention it works, I will deactivate this feature.

Notifications are activated but I have recieved none.

I cannot turn off quote

I have no subscriptions and see no where to add them under administer. They should auto add when I reply in a thread. I have none in my list.

 

gotta fix this unable to turn off quote thing. :)

You pasted HTML from a page. This lead to a whole lot of div to be pasted with it.

  • Solution 1a: ctrl + shift + v to paste only content, not format
  • Solution 1b: use the paste without layout button (right of the past button on the toolbar)
  • Solution 2: click the source button and clean up the mess.

Solutions 1 are preventive, solution 2 is curative. Below your content once cleaned up:

That being said, this is still an outstanding issue. One shall now have to resort to this. OTOH, with BBCode forum, the solution is essentially a mandatory 1b (paste without layout)

Regarding the issue itself (no notification), I will investigate later.

I checked two permissions for authenticated users (Access the resource notifications_event and Access the resource notifications_subscription). Not sure it will make a difference, you'll tell me.

Did you subscribe to forum?

Indeed David, you wrote so many things that i simply dont even have time to read them!

Ok i think you are right. For now lets first build some traffic and then we can simply move threads.

Now, is it okay to copy some threads from forum.monero.cc here?  

Also is it okay if i create threads for whatever i think about? I mean i dont want to spam the forum but anyway we need traffic and we can always delete/move threads anyway...

I strongly believe in release early, release often and in empowering people. So yes, please, repost from forum.monero.cc and create new threads as you think of them. You will probably end up shaping the forum the way you like it because an empty shell takes the shapes of the first shapers - and there's nothing wrong with that.

What matters is to bring traffic (good traffic of course, but I don't worry about this).
