I think he means RSS syndication where some of the posts here are posted by the IT FB page? Could happen but not tied to the upgrade.

I've never even heard of that being possible. Does another forum have such advanced integration?
No idea. From what I can see, forums are mostly dying these days. There's very few that I visit anymore. Facebook seems to have taken over. It seems to be the way of the future, however annoying it is.

I was suggesting something a little more complicated/integrated than that. I haven't used RSS for many years.

To be honest I didn't know if it could be implemented. I haven't done web programming for many years.

I have a friend who is... a known programmer, I'll hit him up with the question the next time I see him haha... that kind of integration could make forums come back in fashion.

Unfortunately we can't have your IT posts appear on FB but we'll do our best to make it homey here for you so you like it here better.

It's possible to integrate something like that with code - but the problem is that Facebook has no obligation toward it. The second Facebook makes any update (which they do a lot) it would likely break the system in place.

There is a browser add-on called social fixer that lets you block Facebook posts by regular expression. Such as block any spoilers for star wars.. but that feature has been broken for 6 months now on his add-on. Social fixer seems to break every week or 2 and the guy has to constantly keep working on it.

Personally I considered making a Facebook program with their official API that would turn a group's posts into a forum layout.. because I don't think Facebook groups are nearly as effective for large amounts of topics as a forum is. But I've sworn off software. I'd rather work on my films

It would be more in our interest for you to read your FB here than to send you to FB, that would be in their best interest.

We'll have some some great features, like, post a link to a FB video, or Vimeo, or YT and it will automatically embed.

Post an image link and it embeds.

Similar to FB posting.

You'll be able to post status updates from your page that appear in the new post results. Similar to a FB feed. That feed will be a catch-all for forum posts, gallery images, blogs, statuses, etc.

And if you don't want all that in your feed it's as simple as creating a custom one.

Really cool things on the horizon.

Oh heyyyyyy IT,

could this new and improved forum perhaps also include a larger inbox than 10.... I understand it's a premium upgrade incentive... but like.... 10? That's super small bro...

Unfortunate, but true. Technical forums still do pretty well. I prefer a place like Indietalk over Facebook, mainly because it is usually on point (with little infighting) and how searchable and global it is. I belong to several facebook film groups and they aren't even close to the quality of Indietalk.

I'm looking forward to the new features.

*Cough*

Also... in this new IT site... will I still have a constant NEON YELLOW bar on the homepage reminding me that my Premiere Membership has expired?

Not that I don't understand... but I've considered writing a CSS modifier to load when I come here so I don't have to keep looking at it...

----

I have nothing against Premiere... I just don't feel the premiere forums were near active or helpful enough to renew...

Does anyone really use this site all that much anymore?

I feel like it's nothing but drive-by promotions, basic questions that can be answered with a simple Google search, H44 asking his seemingly RANDOM questions and APE wrongly preaching that the only movies that are good are movies that make a lot of money and shaming anyone that ever tries to be creative.


This site aint what it used to be, at all

That will change. I have two short term projects in motion.

Ehhh... I used to be really into this site before going to school... within my first film class I learned more than I would have ever on this site...

Since... I still like the site. I like seeing what people are doing? If lighting or colorist questions pop up I enjoy pitching in... I count how many hours until APE or Alcove post one of their copy-paste in audio threads... there are things to do still..

What are you up too lately?

On Topic:
I don't need an IT on facebook.
As a standalone forum it is far more on topic and from a facebook point of view, not as messy and 'invasive'.
