new plan for dmb

thanks shi for being so sweet and supporting. maybe i’m being too pessimistic on dmb’s coding. yes it is inefficient but it’s still curable. if i re-plan the whole thing from database design to layout design (javascript, css) with all my knowledge i can probably improve its performance by 200%. and shi told me another domain name more appropriate for dmb is available and she’s gonna give me a testing space πŸ™‚

since is going to expire in august, i will set that day to be my goal to have dmb moved to the new system ^_^

i will have to remove some of the unnecessary hacks such as buddyland, theme background music etc. basically anything that did not perform very well in the past will be taken out. i will leave the most essential parts and we will start from there. i will probably need some beta testers before it’s launched. so if you are interested, leave a comment πŸ™‚

  1. Phew glad to see dmb will be getting some serious upgrading. ❀ I’d love to be a tester (that’s if you think i’m err.. eligible let’s say?) Lol. I guess the stuff you learn are to be used to solve your problems, and you know so much Dodo! Dmb will be an awsome umm challenge? x ) Teehee.

  2. I’d love to be a beta-tester! How exciting, DMB is getting an overhaul. I have to admit, I was a bit worried at the end of the last post, but I’m glad you’ve been rejuvenated! πŸ˜€ You can do it, you’re awesome!! Yayy!! πŸ˜€

  3. May I be a beta tester? I’ve always wanted to become a member at DMB but it’s always full when I go to register. And I always forget at the beginning of each month. =P Wish you the best of luck revamping DMB! =D

  4. Mm yess another domain name seems tasty~

    Luckily I stumbled on your blog, I’d be willing to be a beta tester unless it involves coding or anything o.O; Helpless there.

  5. I’d love to be a beta tester, too. πŸ™‚ Another domain name huh? That would be cool n__n Thanks for all your hard work on DMB :3 It’s really VERY appreciated and I made a lot of cool friends on there X3

  6. That is awesome, Dodo! πŸ˜€ I wish you really good luck on doing this, and I can’t wait until it’s done. And I’d love to be a beta tester.

    I think it’s good that you’re just rewriting a lot and not moving onto a new script πŸ™‚ I tried phpbb once, and I must admit I didn’t like it much. Templating gets really difficult, and all the funcitons you need seems to be in seperate files that’s impossible to find. *shrug*

  7. GOOD LUCK DODO!! and of course if you need a tester you know where to find me πŸ˜‰
    heheh but remember!! don’t stress out too much and risk our health okay? πŸ™‚

  8. Glad to see you feel a lot better and not “so-dissapointed” with the coding of DMB anymore…
    I’m sure the new board features should be great as usual. but i trully hope you dont leave us too much in the old board… you know, is good to focus in new targets but we still need you in DMB until it expires πŸ˜‰
    If you need a beta tester just drop me a line or U2U me throught the board.. you know a lot of admins and members are going to be more than welcome to give you a helping hand

  9. I stopped posting at DMB last year (as peaches) because of personal problems, and my account got deleted. I kinda miss it so maybe in August I’ll signup for the new and improved DMB. Good luck w/ everything! πŸ™‚

  10. i would love to be a beta tester as well if you need me πŸ™‚
    *is excited about the new board*
    i agree that buddyland is not so necessary. and not many people use it anyways. most people just write alist of buddies in their profile anyhow.
    also the theme background music,, im not sure if ive ever used it even once. so this sounds like a good idea just to leave all of the unnecessary things behind and keep all of the strong qualities. πŸ™‚ goodluck!
