Sorry, I just get autistic about frameworks such as bootstrap and personally think markdown is heavily inferior to BBCode
If you like em' more power to you I'm just really not a big fan...

Otherwise, I have never seen another web software use elixir and the dev is apparently dodging questions

I haven't been to SA in ages and a better forum won't improve the posters there, so...  :jesse:

Looks like lowtax is giving up and is just going to try to pay to have the forums ported to xenforo. I'm sure he can find someone willing to work for unsold SA tshirts.

Xenforo makes a lot of sense.  I don't know why he wanted custom written bullshit in the first place.

They said they've been on the forums for 10 years.  Lowtax gave them an admin account to discuss the software update and they''' "probably" reveal their identity eventually.

If you guys figure it out I will not really mind. Lowtax just made me a separate admin account and I don't really see a good reason to reveal who I am anyway. I'll probably go public at some point in the future anyway.

It's a joke, I've been on the forums for 10+ years.

Oh my lord, my jaw dropped open when I read what they were doing. Hahahah oh boy, have we learned any hard lessons from Radium and his fuckery?   


NOPE!!!  :tuss:


Let's have some halfass hand-coded unmaintainable and unsupported pile of shit that runs on the grace and goodwill of some dude who will get tired of Lowtax in a couple months and leave him holding the broken bag again.  Also, it's fantastic seeing the skeletal outlines of a forum take shape when all this shit has been solved and is in commercial products that you can buy that come with SUPPORT and UPDATES and all those niceties that help protect your primary source of income.

Holeeeee shit this is the most ignorant shit I've seen all week.

I'm still trying to work out what is unique about SA's vBulletin.  SA has less features than forums which were running stock vBulletin 15 years ago had, so exactly what did Radium customise?

Kiwifarms told Lowtax to freeze the old forums and import user data only to XenForo.  This was good advice so he fucking ignored it and is doing this stupid bullshit.  GJ Taxman.

15 years ago they had more active users and servers were a lot more expensive.

You would think that for the primary source of his revenue, the most important piece of his business, that the one thing Lowtax wouldn't skimp on would be forums software and hosting.

But hey, what do I know? :tuss:
Get rid of the notion that an eleven year old cannot be stronger than you, I had a kid of similar age do this to be when I was 16 and your size. I'm pretty sure he was stronger than me, this kid is almost certainly stronger than you.

Yes it totally makes sense. Which is 100% why it won't happen.

I think my last post on SA was like 2 years ago, telling lowtax in qcs to get out of the middle ages and use actual professional supported and cheap, existing, 1000-times-better-than-the-trash-you-have software that any second rate developer could work with for his primary source of income. I think he made some :smug: remark about caring too much, I forget. Grats bitch, you finally clued into what everybody else knew 10 years ago.

yeah that seems to be textbook lowtax.

point out or mention a problem and he'll demand you prove it with citations and in-depth investigation, swearing that he'll fix things but first you must scientifically prove with a p<.0001 that this is an issue.

if you actually do a little legwork, which tends to make him look like a lazy idiot who let a problem go (because he is), it's "WOW OWOWOWOWOW SO BUTTMAD JEEZE OBSESS MUCH???"

Yeah that sounds about right. Super over the top 'I don't care really guys' cringey. Like he doesn't understand there's a difference between caring about dumb forum drama and caring that your business is running well.

I love him complaining about money. He could have done this 10 years ago when money was flowing. Or not let the forums turn to complete shit so people wouldn't pay for it.
