Leagcy FC Refugee
Either way I'm fine with it, as long as this family keeps going!
NewFC is now officially an archive. Please go to FuckCombustion for more information. If you have an account there, use it. If you changed your account name when you registered here, use your FC account. If you did not have an FC account, please register one. Thanks to everyone for their patience.
Sorry pak, my mistake. My brain read opening not re-opening threads.
If you want to use OG FC, go for it, but remember that while we're no longer closing threads, we're not re-opening any either.
This attitude is so distasteful and without class... this community is not about $$$$$. We are about compassion, decency and about a million other things, but greed is not one of them.@vtac..with all due re$PECT, Very Intere$ting timing for you to reenter $$NFC community. I sent u an Honest DM. I hope you compen$ate the hard working mod$ for nu launch and licensing... All da be$t. No beef, if u keep ghosting your LoYaL fan base over N over, they will notice. ( mods, no disrespect to you're hard work..$)
(FC Link)... we are figuring out what to do with everything. As complicated as it is we all want to put the community first. The original fc will be updated: new server, forum software, https, etc. It is being prioritized, but won't be rushed. I won't be posting much until it's done. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
interesting. Seems like they are going to save the old forum. Not a bad idea. But then we having two homes? Or just one? And if one and the old is being updated, does that then mean the old threads will be unlocked again to post in?
We're right here you know.interesting. Seems like they are going to save the old forum. Not a bad idea. But then we having two homes? Or just one? And if one and the old is being updated, does that then mean the old threads will be unlocked again to post in?
Sorry. Totally just speculating here. And bored. And making conversation.
Pak, the two domains maybe retained; fcombustion.com for email and fuckcombustion.com for the site. That does present the issue with image hosting sites. It would be possible to migrate the site to the new domain fcombustion.com, creating an A Record in DNS. Fuckcombustion.com would then be coverted to a pointer record in DNS which would take visitors to the same site. I am not sure whether Let's Encrypt would issue an SSL certificate to fuckcombustion.com, but worth a try.That's because you aren't aware of the technical issues. For example, without fcombustion.com we couldn't send out confirmation emails.
I have no issues with the vulgarity. The problem is that the internet does. Many filters and blockers automatically block anything containing the word because of porn spammers, not because the word is offensive. This interferes with access and email delivery, so a fuck-free path is desirable.I see that the change of the domain name is in discussion and i know some people are approving .But i doubt it is so with the majority . Imo fuck is not the same offensive word or at least people are less triggered by it,compared to few decades ago.. Fuck is a word of the future,the newer generations are expanding its use more and more each day. Fuck this,fuck that ,fuck yeah...
If what @YaMon suggested can work, i am 100% for keeping it !
Unfortunately maintaining both the old site and the new is a more costly option. Cost comes down to how many sites you host, how many domains you need to register and then the infrastructure. The old site has a great wealth of knowledge, a Wikipedia of vapes if you will. There is nothing like that anywhere else on the inter webs and I for one would like to see it retained. Let’s be patient, supportive and see where this goes.Heres my for whats it worth.
I would continue with the plan. Slowly stop new posting on the old forum - transfer to the new forum. To change the plan now would lead to too much confusion.
The old forum could stay as it is as a reference or imported to the new forum. Rather than merge threads you could have an "old forum" section - with the forum sitting there.
The forum should have multiple admins encase the situation arises again. The sky my fall in one day......
@vtac @Stu @pakalolo. Thank you for all your efforts in saving FC.
It was because we couldn't get fcombustion over to our new host due to stupid internet rules (60 day freeze). We didn't want to wait, so we registered newfuckcombustion and got busy building.Pardon me if I missed this, but what was behind the decision to name the new forum "newfuckcombustion" instead of "fcombustion" ?
There is an app for Xenfro based forums, I just have not tried it yet for if I do I will not ever get anything done LinkNot sure if this is feasible as I'm not software savvy.
But would it be possible to have FC as an app for on your phone, instead of access through a browser or is that a completely different kettle of fish?
From a user POV apps are super convenient and easy to use.
FC the app.
