WELCOME BACK, 2018

  • Welcome back guys!! :cheer:  After much pondering chose to keep the old forum here for some time. This creates a new "continuum" for our board but we can deal with it :D

    We're still about one month shy of the new upgrade the way it's meant to be. We're aiming at getting it synchronized with letsencrypt's wildcard certificates since we make use of them by giving each user a forum @ the new web.

    ( https://letsencrypt.org/2017/07/06/wildcard-certificates-coming-jan-2018.html )

  • Well, it about time!!!

    I received many emails from other members with their frustration of a few days that turned into months, etc.  I emailed Vic numerous times and tried to understand his reasoning and his actions and then I asked my 5 year old about this.  He told me, "Daddy bring me to the Lego store at the Mall of America and I will show you what you want to know"................................

    Well, I am up here in Minnesota since last Friday fro the BIG GAME, The Superbowl.  Our home team had the shot to make history playing in the only Superbowl hosted by the home team, but they blew it in the last game of course against my favorite team, The Eagles!

    Here is the picture entering Minnesota last Friday.  Yes, it is winter, but the road was clear to drive.

  • Welcome back, Glen. The reason is a bit muddy. We started with the aim of making a multi-forum, in the path to it, realized the old database wouldn't cut it... not only the database program but the whole database paradigm as we wanted it to be infinitely extensible with ease; so, changed to object storage, then realized it wouldn't cut it either; changed to graph database, then realized it would be an overkill for some areas while lacking in some others. Now we're multi-model:

    Key/value pair for simple insertion & retrieval, document store for large groups of posts/elements with versioning & graph database model for relationship-oriented functionality (i.e. recommendations). All while being schema-less so we dont have to rebuild with every major update :) New forum is being programmed right & good for decades to come!

    So. We're sticking to multi-model for the long run as it's the best of... three worlds. We can build & expand infinitely upon it.

    As to why we're coming back as two separate boards (old + new in development at the same time) it's due to the very core of our new functionality: when a message is deleted at the new engine it doesn't get removed but a whole new sub-forum is created on the fly for the member to express him/herself in full while keeping the old messages thread intact. We need wildcard certificate functionality (*.betweb.cc) which was announced for January by our letsencrypt certificate provider but then delayed to late February, so what the heck; even if it creates diverging forums for some time, here we are! At least we open first month to enter the year 2018 officially :)

    Thanks for being around!

  • I thought I was lost there for quite some time but just "found" the link back to here.

    Hopefully I can keep up with the changes from this point forward.

    Victor,

    So I assume that this forum will disappear in due course? Will new posts posted here end up in the new forum?

    Anyway, nice to see you back.

  • Hi guys! :cheer: So happy to see the family reuniting!!

    Regarding how long both forums get to co-exist... it's simple: as much as needed :nod:

    We're getting thread versioning in our new space, so we can deal with merging diverging "continuums" into one again.

    Chances are late February gets to be the first pilot run since we get wildcards activated by our certificate provider, which is the core of the new functionality of creating a separate sub-domain on the fly for every user, both when one of his/her posts is removed from a thread as well as when a new topic is created by a member posting for the first time.

    This is going to give our forum a nice "gusto" since members won't need to collide in their threads (All the fellows who want to express themselves get to have a sub-forum of their own, with the ability to set their own rules, theme, buddies & ignore list. It's a nice type of community where expression is expanded and basically no censorship is exercised on the posts unless it's rather severe)

    ...Instead of members having their replies deleted from threads they're automatically given their own sub-forum to expand & elaborate their views further. How cool is that 8)

  • Stumbled on this accidentally.  Great to see it's back up and running.  Seems to be a few issues with some of the links, but appears Vic is working it all out.  Welcome back everyone!!
