Welcome to Big Boards. Big Boards at one time offered the Zathyus network our long famous Resource Archives, our extensive search indexes, and our info-packed resource forums. Eventually, these were made redundant by upgrades to the documentations and expanded search features added to the ZetaBoards software, and this forum then lost relevancy and subsequently became inactive.

Our team then embarked on a new project called Planet Nexus, where a bold new experiment in forum promotion is taking place. We call it nexworking. NexusTree offers social networking pages for forums in a fully automated format. Your NexusTree page is created instantly when your join the nexus. Find out more by visiting Planet Nexus, and become part of the nexworking revolution.

Alright, since I'm literally writing my own message board system(Fortnet Message Boards, thanks to Helena for the name XD), I'm wondering what you all would think are features that you normally would ask for that other forum software's currently don't offer. I have a list already and if there is something cool that isn't there already, please add to it. :)

Current list of features

  • Users Online
  • Multi-Quote
  • Find all posts by user
  • Find all topics by user
  • Unread posts since last visit
  • Online/Offline
  • PM entire user groups
  • Quick links
  • Profile Fields
  • Delete post
  • Close poll, not topic
  • User's current location on the board


No Live Preview as of yet


OLD screen shot previews removed...

HA! My ava is in there.xDD

Anywho,I didn't now you were making your own message board man.That's pretty tight.At the moment the only thing I can think of for an inbuilt feature would be a money code with a donation feature and an Inventory in your post details where members can check other members items.

That might be impossable as I don't know if you can code stuff like that yet,but I know for a fact that there's hundreds of people here on IF/ZB looking for just that feature in a message board and probably on alot of other forum softwares also.So even though it might take ake you along time I'm pretty sure it would def. be worth it in the end when it starts drawing in thousands of members within a couple months.=P

Just my 2 cents though......

o_0 really? Well then god sir,You've already caught my attention with your upcoming software.xD

Now if you could only do something like for ZB until yours comes out.LOL

Anywho,good luck with this project man.I can't wait too see thefinished result as I'm sure it will be great.I remember way back when Devueax was making his own software and kept the hype up for it for the longest time...and then he decided not to do it and just dropped the project,made me sad.xD

Yes really. XD Glad I caught your attention, seeing as that's my intention for everyone. :P

Yeah I don't plan on dropping mine. :O Just when I get going on the RPG I'm not going to be working on it that much.


Also just wrote up a users online code, NOT a users online today code but who are actually viewing the forum. :)


EDIT: HA! Just wrote up a users online in the past 24 hours code!

Weird... I thought I had signed up there before. Looks real amazing man, especially since I know you only recently learned php lol. Makes me want to try something like it myself (not enough time to do by myself though). You could start up a rival service to ZN once it's done ;) I'll be keeping an eye on this :)

You probably did and I dumped all the DB tables...it was required.

:) ZN is way to advanced for me, it will take me years to get that good, and I've only been doing this a week.

It looks pretty good. I tried making a forum software awhile back lol...didn't go so well. Maybe consider adding that one JS script that turns text areas into WYSIWYG editors?

Have you thought of maybe putting the userlinks on a floating box on the left/right? That follows you wherever you scroll?
Idk, just a random thought.

Looks similar to InvisionFree. o_O

You should add language packs. In relation to the Online/Offline, what about a users status (busy; idle; eating; etc etc)?

Looks okay for the short learning time. :P

Thanks Tony, and yeah I've had people say it looks like IF. But I've said it was my basic layout just so I can get somewhat of an idea, but I didn't even do any planning - that's what happens when there is no planning. I winged it.

Already have a Quick Edit Reid, and an ACP.

This could turn into something epic :D

To compete with ZB, make sure your boards have more in-built features such as money/ chat etc. that do not have to be installed using mods. Perhaps get some people who speak foreign languages to create translations?

If possible, try to make more aspects of the board moddable, perhaps allow PHp code on the boards.

Will you be providing free hosting? It would easily pay for itself (and bring you some profit) if you do this with advertising.

I'm actually working on other projects before I bring this one back to life. I don't really have a plan at the moment for this, but when I do it will all set into motion and hopefully be as good as ZB.
