I see my "merge accounts" post has been split out with that proxy issue and forgotten afterwards, I'll ask again:
Chase, could you merge my MT account and this one (Same usernames)
Apologies if i spammed anybody

Sorry, I keep feeling that I missed one somewhere. Fixed now.

No one actually asked for it but I noticed a couple mentions of osdev.org lacking this feature and MT having it.

For allowed file types see: http://www.osdev.org/phpBB2/attach_rules.php?f=9

If I missed a common text type please let me know.

Some people use .s or .S for asm source files. and some use .cxx for c++ files.

There's one feature from Mega-Tokyo which was quite good, I think. On the main index page, under the Last Post column, it used to include the topic name of the last post as well which you could click on and go directly to the last message. Right now there is a little pointy page and just a date+name.

Also, another thing I liked was that they only had 3 distinctive forums in the OS development section: development, testing and general programming. Personally, I liked it this way maybe because there was less dispersion. Right now I'm not sure if the 5 forums are so necessary.

Project Accouncements and Testing could be merged because an announcement is also generally a request for people to experiment with the release. Jobs and Project Openings could also be merged.

i sometimes even see .cc for c++ files.
Also, it wont allow Makefile's (just tested) and i dont see linker scripts either

As for my language of choice: .bas and .bi (thats for basic, but there far more languages using plaintext...) but since osdeving in basic isnt standard you may skip that. (i have a code browser with syntax highlighter on my own site so i'll just link there should i need it 8) )

For my language of choice, the type is just: .fc, .force, .fe or .fce . Which one should use? :)

Done, there are now 3 urls in the Last Post column on the index page. The topic title goes to the first page of the topic, the author goes to the author profile and the little graphic goes to the last post itself.

I guess I could merge Testing and Announcement into an "OS Releases" forum. Probably be a week or so, I need to go back thru the Announcement forum first and update the projects page on the wiki. I'm going to keep the Jobs and Opening forums seperate though, I think they are distinct enough.

On the attachments, I've updated the allowed extensions. For files that don't have an extension you can either make a [code] block or put the contents in a zip or tar.gz file first.

Now I know that they are unused for everybody else than just me. :) Thanks.

It's FORCE, simply said: FORth ChEery, or FORth Compiler Environment.

Principially I'm against blocking files based on extensions. What's to stop me from renaming my executable to .zip?

Also, if you insist, you're missing at least bzip2 (.bz2 or .tbz2), tar-gz (.tgz) and Pascal source files (.pas). And, like people before me have pointed out, Makefile's and the like can't be fit within this scheme. Same goes for .bochsrc and similar stuff.

My guess: nothing really, but it'll at least stop most people on Windows from accidentally running them :P.

You mean the purple table header bar? Its just a gradient of the same bar on MT. Anyone else agree?

Nothing, in fact I enabled the compression extensions just so people could get around the extension limits. By doing this it'll make it just a little less likely that people post attachments that are not development related and if they want to use zip files then at least we'll save some disk space and bandwidth.


The daily forum changes should just about be done with the exception of a little restructuring of the number/names of a forum or two. Hopefully everyone is mostly happy with the forums just about the way they are for a little while because the daily changes are a little distracting.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it. It does look different to mega-tokyo, but this is osdev.org not mega-tokyo.

I like the idea of the competition for the logo, perhaps you could extend this to themes for the site? Even if you decide to keep your logo, you could put acceptable theme submissions as options in the theme switcher.

Just a suggestion. Thanks for all the work you've put into making us from mega-tokyo feel more at home.

Well, ok..

I put together a stylish thing if there is anyone else that
wants a more classic MT look:

Code:
@-moz-document domain(osdev.org) {
  body {
    background-color: #000055 !important;
  }
  .bodyline {
    background-color: #000055 !important;
    border: 0px !important;
  }
  .forumline {
    background-color: #000055 !important;
    border: 2px #000055 solid !important;
  }
  .row1 {
    background-color: #003366 !important;
  }
  .row2 {
    background-color: #154580 !important;
  }
  .row3 {
    background-color: #003366 !important;
  }
  .row3Right {
    background-color: #003366 !important;
  }
  td.cat,td.catHead,td.catSides,td.catLeft,td.catRight,td.catBottom,td.rowpic {
    background-image: none !important;
    background-color: #336699 !important;
    border: 0px !important;
  }
  th {
    color: #000000 !important;
    background-color: #666699 !important;
    background-image: none !important;
  }
  tr .spaceRow {
    visibility: hidden !important;
  }
}


It looks pretty good actually. Stylish can be downloaded here:
