    This is more of a "think about this for the future development of the board" sort of idea.

    @Owl i think we all can agree that for as much as you love this place, you can't possibly do everything by yourself (don't know if there is someone else doing code related tasks, but even so, i suspect is not lots of people) and many of us are more than happy to help in making this place the best it can possibly be as we spend quite a lot of time on the forum.

    I also understand that it takes time to find someone you can trust to make code changes to the site and not ruin it/hack it or whatever possible disaster can happen.

    What about creating a dev team that can simply deploy code to an online repository (e.g. github/bitbucket, a normal version control system really) and that can then be reviewed by you on a local environment and if it works fine can be finally pushed to live?

    I'd be more than happy to set everything up for you if you don't have time yourself (not that i have that much time on me either, but between a project and another i can take a look at this).
    Is frustrating seeing how many time you are forced on say no because of lack of time or lack of help developing stuff.

    Could work like this for instance:

    Master branch - only @Owl and other admin have access to it.
    Dev branch - only head of dev team and other admin have access to it.
    Other branches - users of the dev team are able to create new branches off master and push in these. Once the work is finished the dev head or admins can merge into dev/master and admin can push to live.

    Is simple really, doesn't require much trust and you'd get lots of stuff done with help of the community.

    Let me know what you think and i'm more than happy to have the opinion of any other member/staff member who has interest in joining such a team.


    tl;dr: Creating a dev team that can push code to online repository without affecting the forum until an admin pushes all the changes live.

    I wouldn't be able to help with this since I have no background in this kind of stuff but I do think it'd be a pretty good idea

    It would seem like a nice idea; however, from appearances I think this forum is built not just by code, but from some template (just my gut). A dev team for this site would be kinda over the top since it’s not often the forum gets or needs to be updated. But if it is, I’d be happy to relearn the big 3 markup languages to help!

    Only thing I’d probably do is make night mode lol

    Well the forum is based on XenForo and yeah, it has pre-built modules but you also have the possibility to customise stuff, and automate some tasks..
    Everything webmade is based on code!

    That makes things 1000x easier then! I’m sure there’s a way to implement night mode like that.

    I don't have much knowledge about coding but thisit sounds like a nice idea.

    First job of dev team: make a night mode.

    Here, there are many sites to learn the basics of coding, if your interested;
    https://codecombat.com/
    https://www.codecademy.com/

    By night mode you mean a darker skin that makes it easier to read when there's no light?

    If so, shouldn't be difficult to do..

    I actually started on codecademy once but somehow didn't get to continue.

    Yeah, the white can be too bright and strain the eyes sometimes. So something darker like on discord would be sweet.

    Try the microsoft web academy, they're quite good and actually fun to listen to.

    This shouldn't be too difficult to implement to be fair, not much work, just need to be careful that every page works fine with it..

    I think there's actually some kind of colour palate in the ACP where you can easily change the colours of the theme. At least that's how it was on forumpiece, I could make a theme with new colours without coding knowledge xD

    Night Mode would be amazing. Then again, it would not improve your sleeping pattern.
