Thoughts on the board?

Post by Paul on Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:02 pm

Not bad for a free board! No adverts! We can make new skins and keep it fresh whenever we want. We have a chat box! We are probably going to get no spam...

Time will tell if it works out, I am hoping it wont get slow as it gets busier and the threads start to build up. If it becomes too slow I might look at deleting posts in game threads etc which are no longer looked at. Fingers crossed, so far it actually looks like it could have a few advantages over "the other" place... Wink

Well, hey! This is great! I love the picture, and it's super cool that we'll have more control.

Thanks for putting so much time into this, Paul.

Yay first post Jenna! Laughing

Thanks for the support and it was a great idea to go for a free web. This was one I looked at last time, a lot of the features are actually better than the old forums. If you click on who's online you get a cool map which shows where we all are. Very Happy And again no adverts! Shocked I cant understand why someone would pay so much when you can get this for free.

I tried to use a skin someone had made and replace the pics with the Shania pics. I saw a nice beige coloured one, (with Beyonce on), lol! which I thought would go well with that set of Shania pics from people being a sandy colour. But couldnt figure out how to replace the Beyonce pics, I could only do the top one, so I ended up choosing a blue scheme (there were no browns) so it will have to do for now. I'm hoping someone can figure out how to make a skin for this board and we can get one of the more creative members to do an awesome skin for it. Amie and Malsh are brilliant at doing things like that, the old forum was looking a bit dated and nobody ever let the fans have a go at doing it themselves, it really annoyed me. The owners just didnt care to do anything like that, we asked for years.

CMG has replied that they are moving the Shaniaforums to another server & hope it will be up and running by the end of the week.

I wouldn't mind seeing the ad we used to get some years ago... the one with Jennifer Lopez at the Grammys in the Versace dress... remember..?



Those were the days... Cool

Suspect - Sometimes, when you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there's:


Free forum | Music and Radio | Hip-Hop music | © phpBB | Free forum support | Contact | Report an abuse


Shocked - HIP-HOP MUSIC..?!? affraid


No. No. NO.

Also it seems to only show on the front page so I dont know if it disconnects us when we go to a thread. I dont know if its too annoying to have it on every page. :s
