So I've gone ahead and register on the site then proceed to creep around all the functions NodeBB has to offer.
Awesome- I appreciate it. Thanks!
First thing I noticed is the IP will always show
127.0.0.1 instead of the users actual IP.
Huh. You're right, I suppose I never checked. That's weird, though. I'll have to mess with that and hope no one notices before that becomes an issue.
Secondly the color for this group flare is so gray that it matches the background and cannot be seen unless you're really looking for it.
I'll make it a little darker!
Onto your rules, when I was editing my profile picture I saw that you sneakily placed them in the footer. Smart, but what you can also do is make them your ToS. You can do so from the admin panel under
Does this actually do anything? I used to have some text in the TOS, and it didn't appear anywhere so I removed it again.
Now I only focused on the bad :|. Lets move onto the good. The theme is a great example of how a good NodeBB site can stand out. (Thanks @pichalite) Your community seems friendly and alive that I will lurk around from time to time. Defaulted pagination , Good loading times. And generally the things a normal user should see are present, thats about it.
Thanks! Thats good to hear!
Besides all of that I've also noticed (Or rather didn't notice due to Adblock) that your site uses ads. And I'm quite interested why. From experience small NodeBB forums don't use that much so I'm guessing that they don't cost that much either.
We do a lot of things outside of just the forum- for example, we're going to comic con this year if we can get accepted, have posters up on campuses, stuff like that. It all creates a fair bit of costs- The ads are totally useless for recouping that cost, mind, but its still a attempt to not have to pay every penny of it out of pocket I guess.
