New slogan.

I think we need one.

Shoot some ideas, preferably using as many Back to the Future jokes as possible;

"It's what makes light chatter possible!"
"Will not allow time travel"

Re: New slogan.

I think we need new code : 1.4.1, 1.5 or 2.0, whatever...
"New slogan" is one of the worst "thing to do now". (imo)

We ALSO NEED (PRIOR to "new slogan") :
- a fully repository feature (with international features ON).
- a repository for styles.
- some adds or modifs in the doc/wiki.

There are some aspects of the site which are not fully implemented. But fully AWAITED.
So, within ur respect, Lirodon, from an exterior point of view, this proposition for a new slogan seems ridiculous, at least unappropriate for now (imo).

Re: New slogan.

I quite like the idea of a new slogan.

@Mpok: It's not like it takes any developers time away from coding so I don't see where the problem is.

The existing one is tacky, IMHO. Always has been. A replacement definitely wouldn't go amiss.

Re: New slogan.

Well its just a quote from the Matrix movie, with Fluxbb instead of Matrix. Maybe if we find a different movie quote and add the word Fluxbb into it.

I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking "did he fire six shots or only five?" Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel fluxbb?" Well, do ya, punk?

Re: New slogan.

"FluxBB: Any sufficiently advanced forum engine is indistinguishable from magic"
("deviant" Arthur Clarke's law)

Not a true proposition, just a joke smile

But I agree with the idea of a new slogan: the current one is old, and is shared with Punbb.

Just wanted to voice that I'd also like to see a new slogan and wouldn't mind if it was a little funny. 8)

Re: New slogan.

Looks like PunBB changed their slogan to: Lightweight PHP-based Forum

So I guess FluxBB can keep the Matrix themed slogan.

Re: New slogan.

What about something like, "For people who can see what's not actually there..."

Think about it...

Re: New slogan.

We could launch something like a contest (here in this topic, i mean, easly).

I'd say something like:

"FluxBB, the 21 grams forum board" = soul + lightweight wink

Re: New slogan.

I quite liked "120 k ought to be enough for everybody"

In the same kind there is a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupery :

La perfection est atteinte, non pas lorsqu'il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais lorsqu'il n'y a plus rien à retirer.

Translated in English :

Perfection is attained, not when no more can be added, but when no more can be removed.
