openSUSE Forums – vBulletin Upgrade Complete

July 1st, 2010 by

The vBulletin software that is the ‘Nuts and Bolts’ behind the openSUSE Forum has just undergone a major upgrade from v3 to v4. This resulted in some considerable down time on 30 June 2010. However, the results are impressive and openSUSE Forums now has a completely new look. It’s more than that though, the upgrade adds a much improved look and feel. The Forum Team expect some teething problems, as well as much discussion and opinion about the change. As far as changes go, I’d put this on a par with the kde move from 3 to 4. The dust will settle soon enough. Be assured the Forum Staff will be ready and willing to offer advice and assistance relating to this and of course normal help/advice with openSUSE.

Going by the performance of 11.3 so far, it’s going to be a super release. Most of the Forum Team are already well involved with testing and helping members troubleshoot issues. This will make for a well prepared body of helpers for when the release is final.

February 12th, 2010 by

The openSUSE Forum Team of Administrators and Moderators has had an overhaul following a review by the openSUSE board. The new team can be reviewed here: Forum team. The forum review has brought about the establishment of a New Administrator Triad who whilst working largely as Moderators will also act as the first point of contact between the openSUSE board and the forum team. Kim Kgroneman Kim will act as Technical Administrator, dealing with the overall web side function of the openSUSE forum. Users of the forum will also notice a number of new Global Moderators, who have been carefully selected for their outstanding participation and reputation in the forum.
New language forums have been recently established and have a compliment of Forum Moderators. Improvements in the Wiki: Revamp the openSUSE Wiki has had huge forum user involvement and a new section in the forum has been established for the Wiki: Wiki Forum Section.
A huge thank you goes out to Rupert Rupert Horstkötter who assisted the review process.
