Is that gold? It reminds me of Hongshulin mudflats. This colour looks cool, but each to their own. Thanks for your hard work.

Just took a quick look at SMF. It doesnt seem to be mobile friendly, much less Responsive.

A friend of mine who works at Taiwan Mobile told me last week that 43% of Internet traffic in Taiwan is mobile. That is easy for me to believe -- i use my phone for internet things far more than my laptop.

The new platform needs to be mobile friendly

I plan to set up a test board in Discourse or Vanilla and I was thinking about what criteria to use to evaluate them before making a final choice.

1, 2, 3. Speed, stability, and security are important
4. I hope to be able to include some kind of banner or announcement space -- it is important to have apace inna convenient location that will draw attention to related Taiwan websites

Plmk what you would like to see

If we ultimately decide to change platforms, i plan to freeze posting on this phpBB board. You would still be able to login to check PMs, maybe for a year or so

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

This morning, from my computer and cellphone, sometimes the site was down altogether, sometimes just some threads, sometimes it just did not let me sign in... :loco:

Yes. Presently the best we can do is address this issue when it reoccurs, which is not ideal. We're looking at new platforms for the site, which should be a permanent solution.

Is there anything we can do to help? Send money? Good vibes? Go to the Temple of the God of Information Technology and baibai? On what server do we paste the Kuai Kuai?
