Kiteforum.com 4.0 Update planned for Sunday March 6th

Postby Toby » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:40 pm

We are planning to update kiteforum.com with its new designed home, new features, and everything mobile friendly for this coming Sunday, March 6th.

The site will be offline for a while, no idea for how long though.

More info coming soon.

Hahahaha, this is funny stuff.
Yeah, something new we have to get used to...we all know how it is ;-)

So, very curious if I really improved it.
It think yes ;-)

But your feedback is important to make it even better...

But already quiet some ideas and tips from you got it improved.

And for sure you will like the mobile views, making things much better to view and navigate.

Let's see ;-)

'like' buttons would be great.

Also, with long threads it's really hard to see how many pages you've already seen.

It's hard to insert images, compared to facebook where you just drag them into the new post.

Can we have a sort of will feature?

"incase of my death, I leave all my kites and related equipment to my good friend Robert Corbett of Kiteforum.com"

I'm particularly interested in receiving some Chrono V2 kites from those whom have passed.

Toby did you do user testing? If you have made changes beyond what is already in PhPBB then make sure you do usability testing.

phpBB and a social software are the platforms. Not programmed from scratch.

I am already working with the site for months now. But always find a small thing here and there...but technically it works well.

Wow! The new forum is pretty amazing. It has a new "Time Travel" feature I am using right now. It's actually March 5th right now as I write this but I am able to post it 3 days before my present date....which again...is March 5th.

Head's up...someone is going to post a thread about the new Ram Airs coming out and apparantly the thread gets pretty heated.

Well if anyone wants to know what the future holds three days from the day you are in just let me know and I will see if I can answer it for you.

Great job Toby!
