Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

    I'll do my best to fulfill the request. Nobody seems to have ripped it yet which means I may end up having to do it myself. Hopefully I'll be able to get to it in the near future.

    Edit: Nvm. I found it. <3

    So are you wanting people to register now?

    Also, people like animated avatars, so I'm curious... have you experimented with getting those to work? Reason I ask is because I'm using XenForo on the new Higher Voltage forums and, from what I've researched, I have to set Imagick as the default image processor in the forum settings in order to have animated avatars. However, Imagick is not installed on my server. Do you know if that's something I could install myself or does the web host have to offer it? It looks a bit different from things I've learned to install so far.

    Animated avatars on forums are such an old feature at this point... you'd think they would just be an option by default :/

    Hi!

    No, I'm not currently accepting registration since there's still stuff under development. The theme switcher is usable by anyone visiting though, so no need to log in to try.

    Animated avatars are already working on my site -- if you go there and open up a thread you'll see them moving in all their glory. =)

    Modern forum software usually doesn't allow you to have animated avatars because the forum software will generally create thumbnails based on the file you upload. These thumbnails are usually resized and won't include animation as a result. I had to modify some stuff to get them to show up on Vanilla. The 'modern' line of thinking is also that animated avatars are tacky or distracting, so a lot of software doesn't even support them / has them disabled by default.

    Changes for today:

    - Tweaked dark theme
    - CSS/javascript cleanup/optimization
    - Animated upvote buttons
    - Cleaner post score display
    - User title displayed under avatar
    - Images allowed in signatures
    - Flag button added to posts

    I think board is feature complete now. I'm about ready to do a database wipe and open it up to people. I'll probably make a few more themes, but then we're ready to go.

    To avoid abuse, size and dimension limits, if not filetypes allowed (choosing one all sigs have to be) as well are key!

    Then with a guide to have their own sorta template and how much they can fit into one file known ahead of time to work with, that gets people creative too, even with a static image.

    I am super excited for your forum to be done. I think it's because I'm dreading SRK's move to the new format.

    Ok. Forums are open FOR REAL THIS TIME.

    If you made an account before please remake it. Your confirmation e-mail should arrive this time. Look for it in your spam folder if you don't see it for a while.

    I'm so relieved sign-up e-mails are working. Last night/early this morning was really tense...

    I've set up a theme request thread so feel free to post there:

    Themes will be rotated out periodically to make room for new ones. I personally pay attention to every request! =)

    1/19/18:
    - Theme tweaks
    - New e-mail system!

    I have moved over to a new e-mail system that should help keep srk2.com e-mails from being marked as spam. There should be no more problems receiving verification e-mails now. Required a tiny monthly fee, but definitely worth it to make sure e-mails work!

    This should no longer be a problem -- but if you have not received a confirmation e-mail please PM me. I will confirm you manually!

    I'm visiting my parents this weekend so development will slow down a bit -- but when I return I'll get started on a nice mobile theme. =)

    From what I can tell gmail turns the text into a link automatically, but some other people only get plain text. Now that I have a better mail server to work with I'll see if I can turn on HTML e-mails with clickable links for everyone.

    Sigh. Who knew the most confusing part of this whole thing would be sending e-mails? I've learned way more about how e-mail works in the past 2 days than I could ever want to know. =/

    I actually sent Preppy instructions on how to do it, but he hasn't had time yet.

    Basically you've got to edit something in the forum config.php, and then you have to add some custom code to your theme files.

    So I've been told that people love reactions.

    I'm thinking about downgrading to a slightly older version of Vanilla to get reactions back/add a little stability...gonna play around a bit tonight.
