The last days we were overrun by changes and new feasibilities of the site. Some are a success, some are not and a number of them have been such annoying, that they have been turned back after a few days, just at the moment that most of the people were used to it.

Because I fear that we will get a greater number of changes in the following period, which we have to get used to. But I think it's best if we get them all at once.

Therefore I have been thinking of a test-site where a number of selected users can Beta-test all TF's proposed changes. At the moment this is ready all the changes can been done at once on the main-site.

BTW : The members of CFC have been complaining a lot that Beta-testing of Civ3 was bad. This means that testing of changes of this site can be done a lot better.

I am afraid that's not possible, because I'd need to install a new forum for it.

However, I can point you to forums that already have the new features installed so you can test them out. :)

The official vB forum hacks site, vBulletin.org has lots of hacks installed:

I haven't decided which new hacks to install yet. :)

I haven't seen any troubles caused by new hacks being installed. Plus TF would have to buy a new license to have a test forum.

No, I believe there is plenty of free hosting and such for test sites... at least for phpBB.

Not really. vB people said it's ok to create a test forum. I just don't want to bother Telefragged admins with it. They are busy people. :)
