Default The new Kupika.net (brief explanation)

How do you like our new forum?

I have just finished migrating all your data. It took me hours to take care of everything, and many things are not finished yet, but in the meantime:
- if you try to login and it says "invalid password", just use the "Request password" form
- it looks like your avatar and signature is gone. sorry... please make a new one!
- many many things I will mention later

I am sooo tired and sleepy right now (2.25 AM here, Indonesian time) so I will continue tomorrow. I will explain why this change, why no notices, etc. Just be patient

vBulletin. ;;

I like the green, it reminds me of grass. Rabbits like grass. And there's a rabbit right there. -points and giggles like a drunk person-

I think that I'm a reasonably patient person.

Wow, took awhile to finally sort out my password and everything. u_u Although, I think that was mainly down to me using an email that I hardly log in
to for my account. XD

I agree with Lyncheh, I like the green. (: Although it reminds of Easter and not grass, I must suck. @__@

Fine, I shall wait. Even though I just want to know whyyy?! XD

EDIT: My sig is here, just that it is messed up. u_u *deletes signature*

This may seem rude but dudes, I hate the new layout. >_< Sorry.

It's not that I hate green or anything, it's the...design of the threads. I mean...it's...really different than the past one. XD Oh, and if you haven't guessed, this is cheeky_angel004 using a temporary account. LoL.

And when I tried to log in, I entered my username and ALL MY POSSIBLE PASSWORDS but it said that it's invalid. (It shouldn't be, I only have 3 passwords and 1 of those should be the one.) And when I tried the forgot password form and entered my e-mail address (kikumaru_luver @ yahoo dot com) it said that it doesn't recognize my e-mail address!!

T_T

honistly, i agree with cheeky angel's temporary account...

i know you went through all this trouble to make everything better and all that but im sorry... the layout annoys me... i cant stay logged in 24/7 anymore... there's an annoying pop up that you get everytime you get a new message... you cant keep more than 500 messages in your in/outbox... and the alerts on the main page are annoying in general

truely, i am sorry... but this sucks monkey arses... hairy red ones... to contradict the stylish green that you gave k-net...

Thanks, I guess?

Honestly, you could have polled it first or something. The old forum was fine.

The signature restrictions suck.

You can disable that.

Where is the "Mark All Read" button? :| You can't seriously expect us to click every spam thread posted in until notification of it goes away.
---- Yay found it. I haven't used vB in years ><

Thank you for the feedback and I apologize for the sudden change. It all started yesterday when I tried to implement a nice mod into the old forum: Pretty URLs
For some unknown reason, the automatic install didn't work, so I had to edit the PHP files manually (click the "Manual Install Instructions for SMF" to view the changes that should be made). There were lots of changes and somehow, after I edited them all, the forum didn't work. It only showed blank white pages. Of course I could revert back to the old files, but, I thought this was the chance to try something new.

In my opinion, vBulletin is a better software compared to SMF. It also has this plugin called "vbSEO" that will optimize the forum's placement in search engines. So I changed the software from SMF to vBulletin. I think this change will be good for the long term.

Better search engine placement -> more people find our forum -> more members. Again, I am sorry for not "polling" you first about it. But I am sure you will get used to it. Just familiarize yourself with the system and you will find it better than the old forum.




... because there's a 500 message limit
I have increased the limit to 1000. That's PLENTY.

It's not that I hate green or anything, it's the...design of the threads. I mean...it's...really different than the past one
Yes, this is something new that might need some time to get used to

And when I tried the forgot password form and entered my e-mail address (kikumaru_luver @ yahoo dot com) it said that it doesn't recognize my e-mail address!!
You did not enter that email when you registered in the forum. You entered another email. I have sent you a PM containing your email address. Use the "Request password" form to request your password.

i cant stay logged in 24/7 anymore
You can. Just enable the checkbox "Remember Me?" when you login. (didn't you see that?)

there's an annoying pop up that you get everytime you get a new message
Ok, I have disabled the popup.

and the alerts on the main page are annoying in general
Which alerts? Screenshot please.

The signature restrictions suck.
As I said before, there are still lots to be done, and fixing signatures is one of them. Which aspect of the restriction you don't like, and what is your suggestion?

Yatta! Thanks, Hina! ^_^ I'm now back at my original account. Yeah, it may take a while for us to adjust to this forum and new design but...

Can't we really post images in our sig?! Because I'm going to this other forum, it's also VBulletin and we can put images in our sigs. *_*

Edited: Oh, and what's with the "tags" before the quick reply? XD
