Topic: Is someone from the "old school" still alive?

Hi! i don't see any movement in this forum.... no body wants to share new stupid mods? or ugly pictures?

The 97% of the activity are bots? sad

Hope see you say "hi" here!! ¬¬

Seems that a lot of people have moved to the Discord, or just that the popularity of the forums is shrinking (and hopefully not teeworlds'.)
It is true that the forums haven't seen a spark in activity for a while, which is not really a good thing considering it is THE teeworlds forum.

Re: Is someone from the "old school" still alive?

I believe the lack of activity in the forum is due to

- forums being less popular than they used to be in general
- non-ddnet based mods being less popular than they used to be

The bot activity is becoming an increasing % of the forum activity, to the point where I'm thinking we should make new accounts go through a whitelist. PunBB is unfortunately not maintained for long and at this point changing the forum software is a large task that would (imo) take too much focus away from the development of the game.

Not Luck, Just Magic.

Vanilla has a down currently but at least ddnet has a big boom due to the steam release. Nice to see you still alive unsigned char* if you want to join the action come join #ddnet and #teeworlds on irc they are even linked to discord nowerdays.

#yemDX is a known troll!

Hello,
I am an old teeworlds player. I started in 2012 maybe.
Didn't play for a long time though and now coming back.
I mostly play DDrace and fng, but want to make a mod.

ideally would be nice to have a mobile friendly responsive forum,
and recaptcha or similar to decrease automated bot post

So should be a choice for the future to change the software, for example in the same time when releasing a new version like 0.8

I don't know how much difficult could be to transfer the contents from one forum to another version

Re: Is someone from the "old school" still alive?

Glad to see you all again! smile i'm not very familiar with Discord... and for "dev" stuff i prefer use github issues tongue

I'm with CarmineZ, maybe teeworlds forum needs a new 'modern' look...

What about close this and open a new fresh one? close != delete
It is not necessary that all the migration is ready the first day... the only necessary part is the users (name + email) and that the new system is in charge of sending the activation email.

There's a lot of dev talk going on at http://discord.gg/teeworlds. Discord is much what you would expect from a modern IRC, though it requires an account. You can also talk through the bridge from quakenet https://webchat.quakenet.org/?channels=#teeworlds
