New and Improved Forum

Post  Violeta on Thu May 22, 2014 3:22 pm

Hello,
I browsed a bit the forum. I spent a bit more time attempting to connect to the old workshops: nice to have them all in one spot.
I was not able to reach the ARW 2002 (page not found) and 2011 (time-out) homepages. I think it would be nice if we keep the links to previous workshops separated from other topics - this can be regulated by the admin if users mingle topics.

I found that every click pops up some ad within the page. I realize that being a free forum it comes with this kind of "feature" but I do find it annoying and fear others will too. Due to all the ads animation my prompt is jittery and at times I accidently pressed on an unintended location on page. This brought up various unrelated pages - I am using Mozilla on a windows 7 laptop. Does anybody else experience something similar?

Workshop links and ARW homepage

Post  AndreasLuedeke on Fri May 23, 2014 3:33 am

Hello Violeta,
thanks for the hint that the ARW2002 link has changed; I've fixed it.
The ARW 2011 page really appears to be down: the links from the iThemba Lab web page still point to the same URL, which is not responding.
But I've found the indico page of the workshop: I'll use that instead.

The forum is not meant to replace the ARW homepage. You can find links to the past workshops there:

Kind Regards
Andreas

pop-ups and ads (reply to 2nd part of "New and Improved Forum")

Post  AndreasLuedeke on Fri May 23, 2014 4:07 am

Hi Violeta,
I'm using the Addon adblock-plus for firefox, therefore I never saw any pop-ups or adds on the forum page.
But of course it is important for forumotion that people see advertisement, that's how they get paid for their service.

The software of the forum is phpBB, it is free and open source. We basically "pay" the hosting by forumotion by the ads.
It appears that forumotion does not provide a paid service ad-free.
But any internet host could be set-up to provide a forum, free of ads.
Any volunteers?

Cheers
Andreas
