I came in twice but didn't register my nick b/c fuck that shit

can I just do again whatever I did then? Is the link still around? I interpreted beneflop as saying it was invite-only now? or just that the link was hidden?

if I come back I promise to register it this time

I hope this puts everything into perspective.

I prefer to sow discord among sisters. Any word on where the lord stands on that?

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for all your support all these years, it's really meant a lot. I've made a lot of real friendships because of this forum!

I would agree with some of the above people, I think it would be nice to have a tiny forum to keep things going a little bit.

Personally I don't feel strongly about keeping the archives or not, it's up to you depending on how much work it takes. Ideally I'd say find a way of keeping them, but making them less public. Hard to google would be a start. I don't think I said anything really embarrassing but I was definitely a Teen and don't need that era in the public realm.

Thanks again! You're the best in your field!

hello
i am just here to say i would be sad to lose the history
they may just be forum threads but some had real life implications

ideal world, install a fresh read only phpbb on a fresh server and migrate the data. but that is hassle
less ideal, post a mysqldump with the pw column dropped and one of us can keep it alive on some other crappy domain

ps this was a special place
still love yall <3

hey gang

love u miss u

I think it would be nice to have some kind of archive if someone is willing to take that on, it's sad to think of all of our good goofs disappearing after all these years

tbh I wouldn't be likely to use another forum regularly these days but I would totally support a bb3

also would love to get on the Discord if someone could invite me

idk how it works but I guess my username is soggyglobe#3646?

hi all! andy posted on facebook about this.

i would prefer that bb2 is nuked, or, if archived, offline and only downloadable by personal request. i get how important this place is (i met my wife here!) but i've often wished that the off-colour jokes i made as a 19-year-old weren't indefinitely available to any curious employer. and for every powerup comics thread there is a "how often do you masturbate" thread. i suspect there are several ex-tabbers who aren't facebook friends with andy, but who would feel the same way.

in short, tale ot down

In all seriousness, I would be extremely happy if bbs 1 and 2 were scrubbed out of existence; after that, do whatever you want re: setting up a new thing. Seconding everything about not wanting all the worst aspects of my teenage self preserved forever in a digital scrapbook.

hey yall!



im not sure what it says about me/my lack of mental development that I think im still quite charmed by the sort of edgy juvenile shit you're embarrassed by

but I acknowledge that you may see that another way (and potential employers yet another way), and that that perhaps takes precedence



meanwhile, you two got married? gratz!

miss u both + think of you often! stay in touch, dummies

yo re: the new forum, what would the software be? just a better phpBB 3 or something else? what else is even out there?

I know there's Discourse but I also know it's pretty bad and all javascripted up to hell.

looks like there's no forum software available that has all of:

  1. free
  2. updates itself
  3. REST API
  4. not javascripted up to hell

https://open.vanillaforums.com/ does most of that but doesn't update itself
https://flarum.org/ is probably the best of the "javascripted up to hell" type and "easy updates" is an upcoming feature, but infinite scrolling is the WORST

not really seeing much for forum software that can keep itself updated, really. maybe Ryan's host does something though?

also I realize the API is something only I want but like, I kind of really want it
and it's really disappointing how often someone came up with a plugin or patch that'd add it to phpbb or mybb or smf or whatever and then nobody took care of it and then it broke with some update

okay actually I looked into Flarum a little more and the way it does infinite scrolling is kind of better than most, though still not ideal
and it's pretty nice on phones
maybe I'm recommending that

edit: oh actually the documentation is not good and its extensions look like a hassle, and they make you have to write your own extensions to get stuff like custom smilies :/
I am not recommending that

idea: everyone in this thread gets a different 1/16th of the combined bb1/bb2 forum database, but only the last surviving member can assemble it into coherent data.

I have no opinion on retaining the archives of TaBB, but having the forum extend into the future to occasionally check in on and confirm this all existed seems nice.
My only opinions about a potential new forum would be "please add Image emoji" and "please don't make it look too good or add Features." I borderline can't stand using Discord vs. IRC, so it would be my hope that TaBB would stay more or less it's same shitty self.

Bb2 is an important record of the v. Few good ppl in the world being cyberbullies with evil opinions and awful taste

And every tabber who is in discord and everyone i've talked to outside of discord
Has turned into the opposite of a cyberbully with evil opinions and awful taste! Or I guess maybe we have awful taste but no one is snobbish about it

Hopefully other tabbers have become perfect ppl too! I bet that every tabber who isn't a sexual predator or draylorn or aaron diaz has become the perfect person!

I'm sure that
Tabb helped us all become perfect ppl
Even tho we were awful ppl on tabb

Everyone is awful as a teenager and young adult
And if we hadn't been awful together in a public way like this
We wouldn't have improved each other until we became the perfect human spheres of light that we are today

Like
How many of us would have been libertarians without tabb

Anyway
I want it preserved
And I don't care how public it is because I really don't think that any employer other than the fbi/cia/nsa is going to look this far
And if they do
I don't wanna be employed by them!

:trex: Ladies and dudes, it's time to talk about...
:trex: ...saving TaBB???!?
:trex: I say, let TaBB die! It was written at a time when some of us were our vulnerable teenage selves. It's healthier to let it go!
:dromi: But T-rex, what about all the good times we had?
:trex: The good times will live on in our memories!
:trex: Besides, what if someone unsavory uses the information to blackmail someone else? Not that anyone would do that, but it's safer to destroy it!
:utah: T-rex, what if someone wants to write a documentary about TaBB 30 years from now?
:trex: Let's be real, Utahraptor! Nobody will ever do that.
:trex: God, should I destroy TaBB?
:rainbow: IT'S TOO LATE I ALREADY WROTE EVERYTHING DOWN

Regarding all the desires to backup the board, Dezro put up an archive on discord that’s conpletely unreadable but has the whole bb2 saved. Unless I missed something; I’m still not sure it’s what I think it is.
