I have fixed a lot of the little things that were wrong. I still have a fairly lengthy to do list, so don't start complaining yet. I am going out of town for the weekend, so I won't be getting much work done on it. I think everything is stable and all the user stuff seems to be working right now. Now, explanation for some of the new stuff:

  • User Accounts: Finally we have user accounts. For now all they do is let you post in the forum, but soon they will let you browse the user and organization directory and post classifieds. I am working on the edit profile page, so you will not be able to change stuff until next week.
  • New Look: I'm sure you have noticed this. Everything has been slightly re-arranged also. There is also a LOT of background stuff that is better, but I won't get into that. Just know it is better than before :)
  • Chat:
  • We have an IRC server up now at You can either use the java client there, or use an IRC client like mIRC to connect. We hang out in the #etboo channel.
  • Search:
  • We have a site search up and running now. I need to tweak it some, but it is there and works.
  • New Forum Software:
  • We finally switched to better forum software. There are a lot of new features. We still have HTML disabled for security reasons, but we have BB code enabled. If you know UBB code from other forums, this is exactly the same. Here is a quick guide:

    This forum will not allow you to use HTML tags in your posts. You can, however, use BB code to add styles, etc. to your posts.

    These forums will automatically turn a complete URL into a link. URLs in the form or will be automatically linked; sites that do not begin with "www" must begin with "http://" in order for the automatic linking to work (without the quotes, of course).

    To create a link using other text, use this form:
    [url=]link text[/url]

    On the post, this will appear as
    link text

    Bold and Italics:
    You can make italicized text or make text bold by encasing the applicable sections of your text with either the [b] [/b] or [i] [/i] tags.

    [b]Bold Text[/b] will appear as Bold Text
    [i]Italicized Text[/i] will appear as Italicized Text

    Quoting other Messages:
    To reference something specific that someone has posted, just cut and paste that you want to quote and enclose it in [quote] [/quote] tags. This will put the text in a block quote.

    [quote]This is a block quote.[/quote]

    Some notes:

    Be careful not to put spaces between the bracketed code and the text you are applying the code to.
    BB code is not case sensitive. [QUOTE] and [quote] are essentially the same thing.
I will post more when I think of it.
  **etboo version 2** Wed 7/25/2001 11:56 PM
etboo version 2 is now live. Some of the features are not quite working yet, and the database needs to have some stuff updated, but it is here. The new forums are fully operational complete with user accounts. There is a register link on the top of the forum page. I'm tired, so I won't make a big list of changes and new stuff right now, but we will do that later. I know there are some weird things happening and broken stuff, you can start complaining if it is still like that next monday.

I was only a year late :)
