Great! This is cool.
Its really creepy at the old PCKF now... everything is deserted and frozen... *shudders*

I think we need a new logo to reflect the new boards. Something smaller than the one on the old PCKF, that will fit in about the same space as that little phpBB logo. I'd make one myself, but I don't think it'd come out that good.

Also, I think multiple themes would be cool as well. We could have the classic PCKF theme, with pixel-ly icons and stuff, and then a newer theme, with glass buttons and stuff. Just a suggestion, though.

now that Adurdin is in charge of both.
I'm not in charge of the pckf -- I'm providing a hosting service. Flaose, KeenRush, Xtraverse , and Yorpy (in alphabetical order :D) are the admins here.

I did take the liberty of making the "Modding" forum here redirect to K:M, and added a similar "Public Commander Keen Forum" entry on K:M that redirects back here. Admins: if you don't like that redirect and would rather handle the link differently, let me know and I'll disable it.

Those redicts are cool adurdin!

Yeah, this place needs a new logo, definitely -- but nobody of us has been skilled enough to make one.

About poll options... I guess there's no harm if I change that, is there? Hope not! I changed it to 10.

What special signs do you mean Djaser? Not that I know much about technical sides of anything...

And that text at PCKF, I just made it big. :bloody

Simple things like quotations marks and apostrophes.

Um... I definately have the photoshop skills needed to make a good logo. I just have no idea what it should look like. I see nothing wrong with the old PCKF logo, as it was official Commander Keen art. I GUESS it's a little big... and bland. I would need some sort of direction in order to make a new one though. (Size, colors, fonts etc.)

A good idea might be to install a subforum mod, create "archive" subforums inside each forum, then copy the converted ezBoard posts into those archive forums. A notice at the top of topic listings along the lines of "Can't find a topic? Try looking in the 'archive' subforum!" might help.

Of course, we could simply copy all the old posts into each forum. Any comments?

Unless we want to restart every discussion the best thing to do is just put the topics in the subforums they belong. I see no use of an archive forum while old posts still can be read at ezboard.

I meant me, adurdin, Flaose, Yorpy, xtra with that. Obviously I'm not the one who can decide such thing, but in my eyes something with the shades of the board colours (these yellow and green) and some red and orange would look good. I guess it could be picture of Keen's head or something. I can't design.

Djaser, do you mean these? ' "

Thanks Andrew, that's perfect, exactly what I (and I think Djaser) was hoping for.

Btw, what pixel dimensions do you admins want for a logo in this forum?

It'd be neat to have a series of logos that are randomly cycled using a PHP script.
