Chat Box

Just curious, is it just me or has the chat feature been removed? I can no longer look forward to the random chaos, huge gaps in between posts and Ster's Good Mornings. I'd say it is affecting my experience here but it isn't, however I feel it is missed.

Or have I just hidden it without realising?

i disagree. although never use it really, i think it takes away conversation that used to happen on the forums themselves. and what with the forums not being as active anymore, it's a bit shit IMO. add to that the conversations that take a couple of days to have on it because it takes anyone a whole day just to reply. But then i'm just a curmudgeonly fucker so fuck you all :badger:

Nope. Because the code behind it doesn't work very well its effectively a shout-box, making it something that has zero effect on thread discussions because its impossible to have an actual convo on there. But as a shout box its ok and actually quite nice just to shout out hellos and stuff. But its nothing that doesn't exist and better implemented on other forums.

The rest of what I write is nothing to do with me quoting Ben.


The entirety of the IDMf forum code is old and needs updated to have any kind of tech relevance. There's been a few attempts to add features but nothing of significance since I've been on here.

I mean really, you can't even add videos without having to type like a motherfucker from 5 years ago.

Nobody's working on making this a place worth coming to. I get the feeling lots of resting on laurels of years ago. WE KNOW MUSIC ENGINEERING AND HAVE A KNOWING CLIQUE!

The community is depending on those of us who bought into the idea a long time ago. And many have wandered off to not be replaced.

So don't bitch about how the place has less people coming here when nobody is improving features to make it a place worth coming to.

^^^ Actually I agree with this more. With the weird scrolling I didn't see what else was said really. It was annoying. So yeah, if hi and bye is taking over the forum then there is an issue.

Yeah because software development is so easy dude. It's just a matter of pushing a few buttons right?

People really believe that it's this simple don't they? Yes, when you purchase an app on your phone it downloads and then you can open it and do stuff. That's not how the rest of the world works.

Remember when half of the forum posts got deleted and there was a shit storm and all of you guys started going off at us? That happened because we were trying to improve the forum and "add features". Imagine if you were the guy responsible for that? Getting hate mail from people like you and copping shit from all of the mods etc. What would you do? My guess is that you'd probably avoid doing anything that could cause further damage to the site you're working on.

But hey, you're pro right? Nothing you can't fix in an hour or two right?

Okay so what are you doing to make this place worth coming to? After all, it's your contribution that makes this place worth coming to. It's not about me, it's about all of you. So if there's nothing worth coming here for, it says more about how boring and uninteresting you all are.

Dude, there are plenty of forums that are just as old versioned as here which are still getting heaps of traffic (KVR comes to mind). Maybe instead of bitching about shit you don't understand you could spend your effort trying to come up with something interesting to say. That would be more helpful to your goals.

Man, one thing you can always rely on are users who have no idea how stuff works. And one thing around here is for sure, cunts on IDMf have difficulty with comprehension. Just for clarity, you're the one bitching about this. We don't care.

So why don't you stop your bitching and get on a text editor and start coding some improvements... considering it's so fucking easy. I'd do it myself but I have a job and study to do. I'd love to take three months off and completely overhaul IDMf (lord knows I have the technical capacity). But are you going to pay my wages? No, you won't because you couldn't afford to. That's why a site that relies on charity and goodwill has a front-end that looks like a charity and goodwill shop...

But hey, what do I know about shit right?

And to put that into perspective. Twitter spent millions of dollars "transforming" this:

Re: Chat Box

I for one actually fucking LOVE that the site hasn't done a bunch of dumbshit fucking changes for the sake of change and all that garbage.

It works. It's navigable. It's recognizable. Almost without fail, sites that 'update' UIs make it worse. It's so bad that I can't actually think of a site where the UI changing made things BETTER off the top of my head, I'd have to sit here for a bit to come up with one.

Any upgrade the admin team decided on would just be a new forum software install anyway. Like Jaded said, those of us with the experience to rewrite the site don't have the time, and those of us with the time(not many of us) don't fuckin' know how. I'm sure you want an IDMF cobbled together from trial and error and internet tutorials Oly-style.
