Aeva Media / Re: [Announcement] Fork you, SMF!
« on: 5 January 2011 19h04 »
Glad to hear you guys are still fighting the good fight.  I have high anticipation to see what you all come up with.  I am also interested to see the performance improvements that are found by getting rid of all the legacy support (php 4, old mysql versions etc)

I am curious about some topics that you addressed but I am fuzzy on...  are your plans to integrate aeva 100% into the code or just leave it as an addon/mod/plugin?  You mentioned a default portal and I have seen several threads about portamx as a candidate.. would this be a addon or be included by default?  or would these things be like the calendar in smf.. included by default but not activated?  is it possible to fork an existing portal (I dont know about their licenses so might be a stupid question) like tiny portal/simple portal since portamx's developers are being unreasonable?

Finally, just to play devils advocate.. by not leaving the BSD license and going to a closed license arent you putting the project in danger of eventually falling in the same traps and annoyances that SMF has?

I have nothing to add to this topic but to say.. that right here was classic  :mdr:
Well, you can always try SMF Gallery Pro. It's only $50 per year. Oh, add $30 for the video component. So, it's only $80 per year, sorry. It's still a very cheap deal. The crappy software, I mean, not the price.

Ah, yes I remember... You offered me to help play through the main quest in GW1, didn't you? ;)
Yep, consider it a standing offer if you ever have time.

I was going to go to phpbb (not really because its better or worse but had something my site needs).  In fact, I loved smf and aeva/smg so much, I learned a very small amount of php and crudely ported the thing I needed to smf instead.
Lol... :)
What was that thing?
Well, its a BBC for phpbb that adds support for Guild Wars skills and builds..  It is actually a lot like Arantor's Aion bbc mod except the data (pictures, jscript and databases) are all kept on your server instead of like Aions system where it pulls from the aion website.

Looks like this  http://gwgoodolddays.com/index....php?action=help;area=gwbbcode.  In fact as long as I have an open window of opportunity.. Arantor and Nao, are there any books or tutorials that would stand out in your mind to help someone (like me) learn php (and php sql integrations.. something I have never gotten) properly.  Everything I have done so far is just hacking and looking at the code for other mods.

They just didn't build the ban system into SSI pages.
Did vbgamer code that?   :mdr:

Nao, I have said it before and I will say it again.  Aeva and SMG are what kept me from switching forum scripts a long time ago... I was going to go to phpbb (not really because its better or worse but had something my site needs).  In fact, I loved smf and aeva/smg so much, I learned a very small amount of php and crudely ported the thing I needed to smf instead.

Personally, if you port aeva to something else I will no doubt end up following.  I just hope I can transfer my sites database.. then I will probably be porting my mod again but such is life but it is a big relief to hear that things might be getting back on track with you and smf.org.

  I can tell that you are one of the best mod makers supporting smf and for them to close you out is crazy.  You're an engineer and engineers are not usually people persons, they should understand that and account for it..  assign some people persons under you to provide more customer friendly if they want... (I doubt you would mind if other people answered all the annoying little questions).  My point is I think you were/are too good of a resource to loose.. much less throw away.
