New So, I am coming to the end of the first/rough draft for this Forum/BBS/Message Board (what ever people call them these days), and thought I should probably post something. I started work on this whole thing around the end of August or beginning of September of 2013. I think I've come a pretty long way in a short amount of time, but there is still a long way left to go.

To start off, I'd just like to say that this entire site/system has been written from scratch using Notepad and PHPMyAdmin, as well as some other things here and there like Fireworks and that little thing called the Internet. It's modeled after a lot of different scripts/sites, but has been ultimately my own vision of what a system like this should be.

Or should I say, that that is the end goal. Right now it's very generic, basic and lacking. Things take time, and this has been an overwhelming project. As time goes on I hope to make tweaks, updates and additions to this entire site.

That is of course as long as I have time, and the whole thing doesn't blow up in the process. Ha ha ha!

Anyway, for those reading this, please feel free to look around, create an account and try things out. It is my hope that by the time that I am (mostly) done, things will look completely different.

Thank you,

Robert/DW

New Since posting this first Topic, I've done a lot of tweaking with it, and added several things. I've also been compiling various notes on what I hope to add, and I've realized that I'm not really that close to the end of this rough draft.

That really sucks because I really want to move onto other things (Chat Room, Gallery, etc) AND I'm starting to feel very burnt out. My brain feels like it's about to melt down from all the coding I've been doing.

No matter what, I will have to go back and re-code everything from scratch (or at least 90% of everything). I also have many basic things I want added before I consider this "base" project done (the base project would be the user registration/login system and forum).

I'm not sure if I should go back and start adding the things I didn't think about when I started, like multiple domains or the simple thing of closing and opening a topic (that is an easy thing to do, but effects MANY function and sections which makes it more complicated that face value), OR if I should start re-coding everything and add these features as I go.

Honestly, I think I need to step back for a while and clear my head before going on. OR I need to try and work on a more active project with active users who can give real time feedback.

Right now, I really just don't know how to proceed. Hopefully I'll come up with a plan in the near future. But what ever I decide, I will be sure to post something about it.

This has been more for myself than anything else, so take it for what it's worth.
