Big things are in the works as Webby has been building a brand new forum with great new features. Right now, he's looking for users to be part of the beta test. If you're interested, wander over to the feedback forum and sign up today.

http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=589148



The Football's Future Forums are soon going to get a brand new modern update!

Which includes a much more mobile friendly design. And has easy embedding of twitter, youtube and many more features people have wanted for awhile.


some info from Webby

I will be updating the forum to a brand new modern software platform before the NFL season starts. The new forum will have a modern look with a responsive mobile design that automatically adjusts to work great on any device and includes a host of exciting new features:

- Improved posting features with automatic embedding of links from services like twitter and youtube.
- An extensive notification system that members can customize to their needs.
- Ignore and like features so you can ignore members you donít want to see and like high-quality posts.
- Detailed profile pages with much more customization and informtaion.
- @member mentions to address specific members in a given topic.
- Improved quoting features so no more mess of quote trees.
- Improved search, private messaging, and much more.

FAQ:

When will the forum transition over to the new software platform?
We are currently in the alpha stages of testing the platform. We are moving to beta testing this week. If the beta test goes well the transition should happen in about a month. The goal is to have everything complete before the NFL season starts.

What do I need to do to get ready for the transition?
Update your profile with a current email address. When the transition happens youíll receive an email to the address in your profile with your temporary password for the new forum platform. You can then setup your account on the new forum platform.

How can I help beta test the new forum?

I enjoy the current forum. What if I donít want to learn a bunch of new features?
Donít worry. All the new features are optional. You can use them all or just the basic posting features. The basic features and structure of the new forum are very similar to this forum. Youíll be comfortable with it in no time at all. Our focus is great football talk and that isnít going to change.


So what do you need to do?
If you want to be a beta tester, go here and sign up

Beta will start in a few days, and webby will continually be adding people.
A full shift over will happen at a later time..make sure your emails are updated to one you still use.

Posts wont be transferring but post counts will. We will be creating a way to preserve this old forum as an easy way to go back and look at the last 10+ years.

I legitimately never thought this day would come. We're literally running on a forum base that was released in 2002. (phpBB2)

The Twitter embed features are the most exciting part of this for me.

I feel like it has the potential to make it a lot easier to get news a lot faster.

Could be a good platform like that. Kind of like a much better moderated SleeperBot App with a lot of functional forum activity as well.

I think the youtube clips will be the best thing. Sometimes you just want to post a small clip to emphasize a good joke.

True lol.

It will make debating prospects so much better to. You can just show a clip of them doing/not doing something to back up your argument/point or share some sick clips on prospects etc... video is the future/is the way, any way that makes it easier to share it, is better!
