New Beginnings And 15 Characters


#21

Herro. does that mean our Game achievements were all for nothing…? o_0

Say it isn’t so!

Also, a login password of minimum 10 characters is also a bit rough, but I did mail Ja…SIGSTART about it (is that a thing now?)


#22

Achievements are supported here. So Ja… I mean @SIGSTART (totally a thing), would it be possible to bring our badges this side? Are they also nice and visible?


#23

Sup guys. Thanks for the invite. Sad day indeed. But sometimes change is as good as a holiday. I mostly lurked on mygaming, but the friends I made there are some of the best I have.

Onwards and upwards as they say.


#24

Looking forward to see what is in store for the future! Bunch of scary people we have here, hopping from site to site!


#25

Wasn’t Discourse founded by the legendary Jeff Atwood? I absolutely adored his “choose your own adventure” blog post(s) when he decided to leave Stack Overflow. I even got a bit teary after reading it.


#26

I’m really excited to see all the peeps I came to know from MyGaming coming over to our new digs as well. Its all awesome and new and exciting.


#27

The one and only. While I’m not a huge fan of Rails (a.k.a. Ruby), I’ve been following Discourse since launch and it’s basically received all the features I wished it had three or four years ago.

I am thoroughly impressed by it.


#28

Plus I’m really impressed with the mobile version. I’ve always used Tapatalk for MyG, but Discourse is lightyears ahead of it.


#29

It certainly is a breath of fresh air from the rest of the phpBB and vBulletin sites out there…


#30

Would something like this (Discourse) be possible in Node?


#31

Of course! Almost anything is possible in Node. You’ll just need a robust front-end library as well, like React.


#32

Indeed! It’s one of the options I considered – https://nodebb.org/


#33

Ja I’m liking the mobile version quite a lot. Doesn’t feel like I’m on my phone really.


#34

Ja and it is impressively responsive


#35

One thing I’ve not been able to figure out though, is if the mobile version can do notifications. Doesn’t seem like it can. I like the fact that Tapatalk notified you when something happened on the forum. Would be nice to have that on here as well.


#36

You mean like thread subscriptions?

Is there no reply with quote yet or am I just not seeing it?


#37

Well yes, or when someone replies to a comment. I don’t get a notification before opening the site. While on the site I see the notification then. But I’d like to get notified even if I’m not on the site. Push notifications in other words.


#38

Ja I don’t think that is possible with a Web interface. Now if there was an app…


#39

Have you tried this @DieGrootHammer?


#40

Nothing like that unfortunately :tired_face:
