I still think they're two distinct, at least on some level, communities that need not to be merged. Those are good points you had, yes, but still not enough to me to think they should be one. And to note, K:M appeared, rather silently, years later than PCKF and has slowly gained its user base and so forth, I don't think the community is any way divided -- most of K:M are at PCKF, but not other way around. And I don't think anyone at K:M misses or wants people who don't mod to just come and fool around there... 8)

If the modding subforum could somehow be linked to Keen: Modding (and back again), I'd be up for a complete merger. However, I don't want to see 30 sub-forums on the main page. It looks horrible.

As for the lack of ads on ezBoard, Cho'gall decided to renew gold one more time because, in his own words:
By the way, even though the board is actually moving soon now, I renewed
Gold for the smallest possible time (3 months). Due to the weak US
dollar, it only cost me about an hour's wages, so it's no big deal :)

The reason is that in addition to ads, some features get disabled on
free boards, and I also think there is a smaller thread limit for free
boards, and I didn't want anything to be deleted or messed up before the
threads are converted. Also, ezboard ads are REALLY obnoxious, and we'd
probably lose most of the user base overnight if the new board wasn't
ready when Gold expired.
So there you go.

I had something like that in my head. Should be possible.

Also, why don't we take the domain name Keenforum.com instead of pckf.com?

Maybe we could make a link to the K:M and place it here so that it looks like a category (with text saying it's actually a separate forum of course), and do something similar on the K:M.

In any case, I see no reason why links to the forums should not be on each one regardless of making it appear like categories or treating them that way, now that Adurdin is in charge of both.

I do like that idea. A name change would be refreshing. Simply, 'The Keen Forum' would rock.

Hi all!

The Keen Forum could work, nice idea. It wouldn't be difficult to change the name, I think.

Admins. it seems that this forum doesn't accept some special signs that are quite common and that is just erases texts that contain them.

Can someone please look into this because it's anoying.

Nice. Very very nice. Ezboard had been starting to get really old. phpBB is the way to go!

And as for the name change...please no! I'm very much attached to the name "Public Commander Keen Forum" and the initials "PCKF". It's enough of a shock to have this nice interface. :)

Just noticed the "Your little slice of heaven." at the top of the page, LOL.

So yeah, I don't really know where this post is going, but ...

So I checked the PCKF, and was like "What the garg? Why are all of the topics frozen?" Then I popped by the Misc. forum, and TADA! The new phpBB PCKF! YAY!

This is actually fairly exciting. ( <-- understatement )

Also the poll options are a bit limited can they be raised to ten or so?
