It would require using XenForo, as that's the format the SQL database is in. I would write my own BB over using XenForo (programming is what I do these days). Although Discord is probably the best to use right now anyways and many people use Disc already.

I'll write a program to loop through the tables and dump them into text and/or JSON format. From there it should be possible to import into anything with some adjustments.

I don’t like 3D anime’s, but this doesn’t look that bad. Apparently there’s a lot of changes made within the story.
I’ve never read the manga so I’m not that bothered.
The artstyle change isn’t a dealbreaker for me either. It actually grew on me.
Anyway looking forward to this

Well, that was in opposition to using Xenforo. The BB format seems to work well for us and familiar.

phpBB was the easiest and quickest to set up at the time, when the Original TAL went down, and I just stuck with it as it's easy to fix

phpBB is a good option since it's free and open source.

Haven't played around with a forum database in a while. Thinking of a good way to archive the old TAL posts. Originally it was on vBulletin and Raug migrated it to XenForo. Took the phpBB database and exported it to JSON and ran it through jq.

Code: Select all

jq '.[41].data[].post_text' u9883..9_migration.json 2>/dev/null | head -32 | sed 's|<[^>]*>||g'
It pulled out post_text beautifully. I'll do the same on the Xenforo DB and write some functions to array the forum IDs and valid topic IDs, loop through each topic ID and and slurp the noteworthy info such as poster, post date, and topic. That will be cleaned up to plaintext and placed in a text file with the subject line being the filename. Then organized into directories of the forums.

Code: Select all

../tal-xenforo/General
	some-topic-here.txt
	another_topic.txt
	topic_ID-3.txt
../tal-xenforo/Lounge
	etc...
Then it can just be tarballed and even placed in a web index.

World Cup officially starts today 🙌🏾 👏🏾

Edit

Great opening World Cup ceremony. Ironically Morgan Freeman's part about all of us being scattered Tribes is exactly what the Hebrew to Negroes documentary Kyrie Irving, created by Ronald Dalton Jr was promoting.

Meryl's a reporter now and looks prepubescent, Knives appears to be doing his best "Look at my hood!!" Kabuto impression, and Wolfwood looks like a tool who appears to have been given the 4kids sanji treatment. A fucking sucker? Seriously?
Oh god they are going to butcher the Gung ho Guns.
I can't believe Nightow signed off on this shit.

Also...

They replaced Milly with some dude named Roberto Di Niro? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
