Welcome to forum.defence-force.org 2.0

There we are, with a new forum.

Hopefully that one will work better, despite running on a ridiculously under-powered machine.

So what's new compared to the old one?
- It runs on my own hardware, from my own internet line
- I have full control on the software, configuration, parameters, versions of php and database
- Newer version of phpBB means I can probably install some stuff like RSS feeds, better themes, etc...
- The notification mails are working again
- We have feeds

So now your job is to:
- give me feedback on the performance, look and feel compared to the old forum
- signal me any weird issue (being performance, glitches, things non working)
- tell me which themes you want me to install, I will keep that one as a default one, but you can select other ones in your user control panel

Have fun!

Yup, we got spam. I guess that tells a lot about the effectiveness of the official/default phpBB spam filters :p
Anyway, if you can endure the spam for a day, I will get rid of it later today using the method I did previously and happened to have been working flawlessly for a number of years :)

(In the mean time I changed the registration system to 'validate by admin' so I expect to get few hundreds of mails this evening)

I quote my theme list from the other topic:
I like this one : http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/1thank but it's too narrow, and like a clear séparation between users posts...

Or this one http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/610nm with less orange thingy ;) (game, find why this theme is called "610nm")

- http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Absolution is clean too, but too narrow
- http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Artodia%3A+Ultra+Blue
- http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/neosilver
- http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/prosilver This one look like the current with other colors
- http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/subsilver2

But... Why not this one :
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/XMass ?

Wow, I was a bit lost when I opened this tab, "what the heck is this forum?!" :D

Looks great.

Great job Dbug!

Very nice new forum... I tried the other themes, but I'll stick to AeroBlack for now.

I still need to get used to the new style for code, though.

Mmm... looking at the pannel at the left of this text where is the spanish flag? :shock:

Someone I know tried to open an account yesterday, but it seems it didn't work.
Don't have much more details but he's no rookie, so maybe something's wrong while subscribing?
