Forums: Index > Lounge > New phpBB3 Forum

There has been a debate about Wikia integrating a phpbb3 based forum with Mediawiki However as it appears they are not planning on doing so I have created a phpBB3 forum hosted with a friend of mines Hosting service.

It is for General social discussion, NOT for discussion about the wiki itself. I believe it would be rather clunky to attempt to discuss topics on Mediawiki however if someone disagrees please tell me. WillSWC 05:47, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I recently proposed a wiki forum, but they said it should be here. - Patricknoddy Patricknoddy 12:19, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Hi, that sounds like something we could do. With Social based wikis you want as many people as possible working on it so I'd recommend starting here as it would be better than starting from scratch. Can you provide a description of what you wanted your wiki to do. Will was the one who wanted to start a forum here. He hasn't been active for a while but I'm sure if you leave him a message he'd respond to it. --Drawde83 22:40, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
My proposal was basically a forum in a wiki format. I'm sure you (or somebody else) could do that. - Patricknoddy (Talk)
Already been done at, it does have a few bugs to work out. Wikia staff has said that if a Wikia wiki community wants a phpBB forum with support for MediaWiki-syntax (like the one at Inside Wikia) they will install it for you. Only Wikia developers can install it. Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 08:05, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
That is not like my proposal. My proposal was not a forum about Wikia it was a forum about anything, it had no particular topic. - Patricknoddy (Talk) 21:00, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

The Inside Wikia forums was an example of the type of forums that could be installed here. Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 02:20, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

the Forum for talking about anything is Forum:Lounge. I'm thinking of adding some new ones. Something like group requests so you can suggest groups and see who else wants to join. an Introduction Forum so new users can introduce themselves. But if you have other more specific suggestions list them here and we can see if they're workable.

Once the Inside Wikia Forum system is more polished I'd be all for getting it set up here.
