Makestation 2021 Changes

#1
Hello everyone, 

As many of you know... 

We've been hinting at some big changes over the past few weeks. Big Grin

We've actually been internally discussing BIG things since last summer, and have tried a LOT of different prototypes. We've been working behind the scenes for quite some time, and we are finally getting ready to do the biggest facelift in the entire history of this community. 

We will be sharing more details over the coming weeks, and want to make everyone a part of everything that will be taking place. We're putting a lot of time into this and will be exploring new limits that are much further than what we've been able to do previously. The purpose of this post is to not only announce the facelift, but to also get open ended feedback and ideas from you guys. We want to know what you'd like to see in this community. If you could take MS in any direction you wanted over the next five years, what would you implement, and why? 

This is an open ended discussion for everyone in this community. Although not every idea will be technically feasible (we can't make Facebook 2.0, nor would that be a good thing Finna ), we will be seriously considering your suggestions as we progress. We also plan on implementing a lot of long-overdue fixes and features during this transition, and will make sure it's as seamless and simple as possible. 

We will be announcing more details as we progress. Stay tuned!

Sorry for the long delay, there's been a few hiccups along the way trying to get the theme to look right but it's getting there.

just taking a lot longer than expected.

well the plan was to move to another forum software, there's even a mostly finished interface for it but darth and I both agreed that mybb was kind of failing with the next generation version effectively on ice.

among other features in this new software was a lot of cool options like being able to create tables of contents using threadmarks, better integration with various media types, and even some social media integration allowing for a combination of forum and blog format. all without using an external layer instead built into the forum software it's self.

the problem is the theme isn't 100% there yet and tinkering with it is taking up a lot of time but it's for the most part done and working.

on top of that the new forum software has really good support in general which means that security updates and anti-spambot software is much better supported than mybb helping reduce the flood we've been receiving the last year or so.

this coupled with much better support for mobile and variable scale platforms like tablets and ultra HD/4K resolutions is the base that we were working off of, I won't say what software we're planning on switching to but it is in the works, it's just delayed for the moment.
