How about an update for the phpBB Bulletin Board forum pages?

It can be done. I think it will be an attractive element to new and old forum users.

Here's an example I did by piddling with PhotoShop...

The P-47 plane could be changed to a different vehicle every 3 months or so.

~S~ Arturo!

While an updated BBS would be visually pleasing, im afraid it is just a new cover on an old dusty book. If there is anything that needs a visual update, its the overall graphics (and game) engine.

The issue at hand is finding a way to get more players to actually check this board more frequently.. The appearance matters not if nobody comes by to see it..

Additionally, the board is locked to non-registered visitors - limiting growth.

The Forum needs to be open to everyone.

If there are issues, they can be addressed when they show up.

We need COMMUNITY to grow.

At this time the forum is for players only. They must have a real account. Not a cadet or guest account. Players are registered by their call sign.

Hey Chunky - I (continue to) think locking this forum is a bad decision. Any chance of re-visiting that decision?

Sakai,

The board is not locked. It is open to all registered players.

The only other option is to allow for open registration. That has already proved to be a bad idea.

Requirements are pretty simple. Have a game ID and your approved.

If you have suggestions please send them.

I have a suggestion:

TRANSFER THE BBS to Facebook. Lots (millions) more viewers and the youngsters will feel right at home. There is
also Facebook Marketplace where advertisements for the game might be able to attract users. The way it
showcases images is easy to navigate. There are private messages and ways to close off some areas from
the public is you want.

Look at my Facebook page and see what you can accomplish.

This location (BBS) can be for archival purposes.
