Yeah, admins on vBulletin can alter post counts to whatever they like, hence the caution in the ranks thread that we would lower the post counts of people caught spamming. Then if you get to be admin yourself one day, you can restore the post count that old the admin took off you for spamming, which I totally NEVER did.  Razz

tf you on about mate? on another vb forum i asked the admin to make my post count decrease by -1 every time i posted, it was possible. and i've seen loads of people change their post count on various forums.


I'm not saying it's not possible. I'm saying it doesn't make sense. If we have a post count that doesn't work properly for everyone, better not having it. That's my point of view.

It is with deep regret that I have to announce that I will be closing the forums system at the end of June.

The facts are stark, the rise of social media has meant that myff has long ceased to be a viable business.

We are now facing rising costs, aging infrastructure and the need to make everything work of https to avoid another decline in  what is already a dead duck anyway.

I love forums and the advantages they offer over facebook, and I hate to let down the thousands of people who still feel the same way.

But in the end the facts can't be denied and we either exercise a graceful shutdown with advance warning (and I will make forum exports available for a token donation or free to those who have paid for advert free) or we will soon find that things break and can't practically be fixed.

I can only offer my sincerest apology for the pain I know this will cause, It has been a pleasure to have helped create so many little communities over a stretch of more than ten years.


Alright folks, there's your guarantee that we most definitely will be switching to vBulletin, and finally a solid time-frame for those who were asking. June at the absolute latest.

Time to really get the ball rolling.

Another post from myff admin:

We have launched a crowd funding initiative to get myff up and running and updated to new https standards in the cloud.

The aim is to raise £10,000 for the initial transfer, and then work off a very low cost subscription model to help us keep on running the service to the standard members have come to expect of us over the years.

If we fail in this target we will have to close down, but forums that have donated or have paid for advert free will get a free forum export.

Please help us in our hour of need.

If you do donate, then please start a thread with your forums link as subject in this forum.

These forums are now under new ownership, I really hope that doesn't affect our plans in any way.

Is June still a realistic target? I don't mean it in a critical way, it's just that we're almost into May. I'm also in no rush. Just curious.

It shouldn't take long. I could set up the vBulletin forum overnight if we were starting from scratch. Its the transferring of the database that will be the complicated and time-consuming part, but I'm still only talking about a matter of days, if its done by someone who knows what they're doing.

There's been some difficulty in getting a response from Miniclip on whether we can use their name within our domain and that's the reason we haven't got started yet. I will contact them again and if I don't hear back very soon I may just push ahead with picking a URL and we can change it at a later date if they complain.

Hey, if AlisaNTonic can advertise his discord chat room as official miniclip chat, and fb has (apparently) several different groups claiming to be some sort of official groups, why would they care about our FAN forum..? Especially with that same line we can see at the bottom here too... "This is an unofficial forum run by..."

I totally agree with this. Chances are the incompetents at Miniclip wouldn't even realise we had a forum, never mind lodge a complaint about it.
