Unfortunately no one can be told what FluxBB is - you have to see it for yourself.

Welcome to FluxBB

Hello and welcome,

As you probably already know FluxBB is a new project based on PunBB, Neal (Smartys), Paul, Kristoffer (Jansson) and I (Connor) are behind it, feel free to ask any questions smile

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Was this based on the latest development? (the domain switch)

I have lots more but I'll wait for the public announcement.

Sort of, I think the main reason is the shift of power, Rickard has stepped down at least for now, and the new owners of PunBB have started exerting their control (yes the domain change was one of these things), and we felt we wanted to be in control of the project we are working on.

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

That said is future development of PunBB at a stand still?

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Development by us, yes, there are employees of the new owner working on PunBB though, we don't know what they will do.

That was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak. wink
It was not the first issue that we (the developers) disagreed with the new owners over. However, in the past we always ended up working out a compromise. In this case, however, there was no compromise to be reached.
In general though, as Connor said, it was also about getting rid of the feeling that we had little to no control over the project that we were developing for.

We will not be developing further for PunBB.org: however, we will be releasing a rebranded/updated version of 1.2 for people to use and we will provide support for the 1.2 branch of PunBB and FluxBB.
However, as Connor pointed out, the owners are a commercial entity that has programmers. They may very well choose to assign some programmers to maintaining the project.

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

They have the strength here... Sucking up to smartys again... tongue

Good luck and will be converting myself... So hope my contribution can help.

Will you release a patch/hdiff from 1.2 to fluxbb 1.2?

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Hi Connor and fellow defectors,

Glad I skipped the whole takeover scene, hope Rickard is doing fine.

It's been awhile since I played with 1.3 code, it's looking good, fast as always.

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Hi Bert,

That was my original idea for a logo but I have a feeling Mercedes might have something to say about it.

My next idea was something based on <=> (less is more).


The only thing worse than finding a bug is knowing I created it in the first place.

The Mercedes logo is inverted and is inside a circle.

Therefore, the FluxBB logo shall be a diagram of the female reproductive system labeled as the Flux Capacitor.

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Maybe that will convince Paul of putting pictures of naked women on the Fluxx's homepage.

Funny cartoon, then we can have In Utero playing in the background when someone visits the main site.

FluxBB isn't a bad name, I would buy up fluxbb.net also, to go with .com and .org, that's if the name sticks.

Flux brings back memories for me, it's the name of the Linux user's group I attended in Florida. Maybe Adam Glass would sell you Flux.org, now that would be nice, seeing as Flux.com is a big .Net social community project.

As for another name, now that's tough these days, with most good domain names taken.

Re: Welcome to FluxBB

Flux supposedly = Fast, Light, User friendly, eXtensible.

Actually = we couldn't think of anything better with an available domain.
