Since we launched Whisher, the forums have been active with users posting their comments and views, suggestions and bug reports. To improve the performance and features of our community forums, we have moved them to a vBulletin-based server. Amongst other things, the new forums will allow us the following:
- Use thread ratings and user reputations, as well as user titles.
- Quickly moderate and manage threads and posts.
- Add hacks and modifications, for example, to allow users to show their hotspot status.
- Have private forums for beta testers.
- Control automated spam.
We want our forums to become an open place for discussion, without censorship or regulation on what users can or cannot say about Whisher. We take user feedback, suggestions and criticisms very seriously, and use them to improve and move forward.
