Good question. I’ve not seen any sign of him in ages.

His crazy huge group buy is a bit of a ghost town.

Oh, we very much are. There is also a dedicated area for templates in outline, so it will be simple for new users to get up to date on proper style and structure. Here is our current form of the posting guidelines:

Don’t forget the PM search function! Losing that here in the great backend transition really threw me off my game. Same for 7bit, whose empire relied on full text notification emails.
Already included. Another thing nexthority provides is group PM's! :mrgreen:
Sounds promising! If I grab an account now, can I change my username to my desired 2 letters if and when you support that?

May need to find somewhere to land if… well, you know.

Should be. I will likely have to redo the entire authentication scheme as it wasn't setup properly the first time. So I wouldn't worry about name limitations, lots of things will be changed regarding auth.

You asking about 7bit? No, Dasher was zslane. 7bit did Round 4, 5 and 6, massive GBs he handled himself as a shipping middleman. Huge ordeal! Zslane simply ran his via Massdrop as I recall.

Flarum itself does not allow users that have less than three characters, I apologize for the limitation but there isn't anything to be done. If I could make it happen, I would.

More info on the tabs issue? This might just be from registering, but the forum shouldn't be creating a bunch of new tabs per click.

At Nexthority, a new tab opens only for the login process and not after thatwhatsapp mod. Also, i tried to login, but 502 bad gateway occurs.

The name is snappy, but the same objection could be levelled at it as at Travelodge. Trave-lodge: what’s a Trave? Travel-odge: what’s an odge? But Travellodge is too ugly, albeit with Welsh overtones (“I’m staying at the local traah-veh-gggghhho-jah!”)

Nexthority isn’t quite so bad because “thority” is already an arbitrary string from “authority”, so why not just a shorter string, “hority”: Next-hority. Where all the keebaholics hang out… until the next Buyoutgate.

Moral: if it ain’t broke, don’t suffix it.
Not so great I say, it can get ugly: Next-horrorty, Next-horibly... And more

Do something more clever and with a relevant innuendo: as it will be the response of the community against the desk-authority, a cool name would be one that describes it: revolution, mutiny, opposition etc, e.g.:

Deskbelity (from rebelity)

Desksistence

Deskoppossity

Deskrising

Deskvolution (I like this one)

Deskmutiny

Desksurgency

Deskrenegade (bad to the bone, baaaaad to the bone)

And so many more

Or the name can be a comment on the current Deskthority situation and you can just call it Desktrocity.

Any idea of what happened to Nexthority? Looks to still be out of commission.

Just had a look. Redmaus is busy and no one’s really checking in and posting yet. That unfortunate forced content wipe didn’t do any favours.

Needs a real launch.

Nexthority had a lot of momentum initially, but both the forum and wiki have been rebooted and that sort of killed the momentum IMO.
I personally prefer discord for banter, forum for documentation/elaboration, and wiki to present facts and have a place to make any info from the forums easily searchable.
Of those 3 things I could handle the loss of the forums the most. A lot of information gets lost because people don't put it on the wiki so it gets forgot about. Since it is mostly forgot about and hard to find anyway though I think that part dyeing out would be bearable. The wiki is the most important piece of the pie by far and any place people jump ship to has to come with a strong wiki IMO. That's where the rich knowledge of the community lives. There's a million places to shoot the shit about keyboards but exactly 1 keyboard wiki.

It looked initially like a good candidate to become "next Deskthority", and people started to register & submit the content - but actions like deletion of all the users and wiping of content produced predictable result. I myself in particular totally lost any interest to that site.

Yeah, that's unfortunate. I dunno if Nexthority will get critical mass. And to be quite honest, that's a euphemism!

Take a look at this:
https://web.archive.org/web/20190123082 ... ehype.net/

TypeHype looked pretty good for a while, around 2019. I wasn't looking for another place to go, but Trev's Realforce R2 review caught my interest and I liked the site. (If not the name!) Trouble is: that link's to the Wayback Machine for a reason. TypeHype sunk. RIP.

Oh, that’s what it is? I just assumed it was some whimsical looking set of desktop speakers or decoration on a monitor stand! :roll:

Strange space to put a pointing device. Might just be for show, I guess. But, uh, why three? A pointing device for an Octopus?

Ohhh… I see.

It certainly used to be a busier place. (And a bit less spammy, when we had a mod or two!)

Something will happen regards the ownership. Can't see this paid hiatus lasting forever

You can tell things are going great when our SPAMmy echo is parroting forum complaints now as well as old keyboard threads…

How long until he's duplicating these spam reports, I wonder? Save us the effort and tag yourself, mate!

Wonder if we should make a "Join Nexthority" thread and get someone to pin it to the top of the forum.

Nulls Brawl Apk
As an example, you deploy mediawiki like this:

Code: Select all

services.httpd.extraSubservices =
    [ { serviceType = "mediawiki";
        siteName = "your.sitename.here";
        id = "unique_identifier";
        dbName = "dbname";
        dbUser = "dbusername";
        dbPassword = "redacted";
        defaultSkin = "MonoBook";
        extraConfig = ''
          wfLoadSkin( 'MonoBook' );
          wfLoadExtension( 'WikiEditor' );
          $wgDefaultUserOptions['usebetatoolbar'] = 1;
        '';
      }
    ];
:D
This is looking cool indeed, thanks for sharing this code with us.
