Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 6th, 2010 | Misc.

I recently added a basic forum to the site, you can visit it here.

It isn’t meant to be a humongo forum, it’s more like a small place for visitors to talk and a place for mini-projects, mini-updates, and stuff like that that I don’t want to clog the blog front page with. The manga translation project I mentioned in the last update would best be organized on a forum, for example.

I tried to find a way to link blog accounts with forum accounts by using WP-United, but with no luck. If anyone has suggestions, let me know.

Sounds cool 😀

BroBuzz said on Mar. 6, 2010

Sweet! But do you have to be a member to post in it, or is it like the comments where you don’t?

Mato said on Mar. 6, 2010

Yeah you gotta sign up, otherwise it’d be a lot of extra work to keep people from being jerks.

Linkzcap said on Mar. 6, 2010

Looking forward to it opening!

Hey, I know a little about linking blogs and forums… ok, I know almost nothing unless you are running Word Press (I can tell, are you?), Word Press recently released their own forum software that can integrate with a Word Press blog. Just a tip, it’s all I have.

Awesome! I’ll join for sure!

Hmmm…. I like the idea, but well, EBC already has it’s own section on SM.NET, so, either we take this one down, or take the EBC discussion down, or we just leave them both on 😛 Just wondering, will this forum also allow you to have avatars? (Hopefully with restrictions like SM.NET :D) And, will it also have badges too? (I highly doubt that, but there could be a badge given out by Mato to people who did something on the site… Just in case though, I’m ThunderMite on the SM Forums but Ninji on EBC and the EBC forum) And finally, how would you earn up ranks like Admin and Global moderator? And will there be any contests or giveaways of any sort? (highly doubtful on the giveaway though) Man, too many Qs to answer XD

Ninji said on Mar. 6, 2010

Whoops! There’s an FAQ silly me! 😀 But, WILL there be any contests/giveaways in the near future?

Ninji said on Mar. 6, 2010

*LAST POST* Sorry for triple posting, but can you have a moving avatar? Like a little .gif animation? I found this really awesome one I wanna use 🙁

Mato said on Mar. 6, 2010

Yes, .gif avatars are allowed. They have to be under a certain file size and within certain dimensions though.

Right now I don’t have any plans for contests/giveaways. I have an extra copy of Mother 3 and a few other goodies I might use for prizes in the future though.

So we have to register again for the forum, right?

Kyoo said on Mar. 6, 2010

this is awesome. my most favorite earthbound fan site finally has it’s own web forum. I probably won’t post on it much (not as to insult you, or this website, I just don’t have a lot to talk about) but I have the option of talking on a web forum. that’s awesome! thank you for making the forum

Darien said on Mar. 6, 2010

Be nice to have a button on the forum index linking back to EB Central. Other than that, everything seems fine. Looks like the first pointless syntax nitpicking has started up and everything. Just like a real web forum!

meleemario said on Mar. 6, 2010

Yay!!! This site has a legit forum now, I was wondering where that button was when I joined!! This is awesome! \m/

Ice Sage said on Mar. 7, 2010

Ha, perhaps I should read more carefully in the future.

Ignore that question and pretend it’s not there, please.

Kyoo said on Mar. 7, 2010

wow. that forum was far more addictive than I ever imagined. I had to make myself walk away from the computer. great forum

Mato said on Mar. 7, 2010

To be honest, it’s a lot livelier than I expected 😯 I can’t possibly keep up with it, so I’m gonna see about getting a couple mods to watch over for me. I think if handled right, it could make for a very good addition to the site. Now I just need to find the time to somehow make a much better theme for it…

Murcielo said on Mar. 7, 2010

That’s how it goes Mato, putting a huge group of Mother fans in a single forum will retrospectively unbalance the universe, or message board (in this case). You’re gonna need the help.
Looking for that right theme has always been the underlying issue with message boards, but I’m sure your personality could help you determine the right theme.

MarioFan3 said on Mar. 7, 2010

Let’s just put the Starmen.net theme to it. 🙁
I’m only joking, we want a forum that’s different to the other one. 😉

I was going to say that you already “can’t possibly keep up with everything that happens within the Earthbound community” let alone handle another forum as well, is there anything that doesn’t take your free time away?
I wouldn’t survive one day living in your shoes. You must have some extreme energy coming out of somewhere! The Mother3 Translation may have sucked half of your liveliness juice out of you, but you’re getting all the prayers and support from the people you know, giving you the energy to defeat Giyga— err I mean, sleep deprivation caused by those two years. 😀

Pigmask Private said on Mar. 7, 2010

Thanks for the MOD powers, Mato. Loving the forum.

Sora444 said on Mar. 7, 2010

May I has mod power? I’ll be a good foxy boy.

Ninji said on Mar. 7, 2010

May I ALSO have the mod power as well? I’ll promise to be a good boy! *coughsometimescough* 😛

Patwhit01 said on Apr. 3, 2011

Hey Mato! I signed up for the forums, and you said I’d receive another e-mail to validate my account, BUT ITS BEEN 3 DAYS SINCE YOU SENT THAT EMAIL! CAN I JOIN OR WHAT?

Poe said on Apr. 3, 2011

@Patwhit01 – Sorry, we’ve been having problems with spambots making millions of accounts, so if you signed up with a spammy-sounding name or email address, I might have mistook you for a spambot. Let me know which name you signed up with and I’ll see if I can activate your account.

Patwhit01 said on Apr. 5, 2011

@Poe My name is Patwhit01. Send that e-mail please.
Ill have a great time since i got banned from Starmen.net.

Patwhit01 said on Apr. 8, 2011


Poe said on Apr. 8, 2011

There’s no need to be rude. I don’t get EBcentral comments emailed to me, so I just happened to miss yours. The name you signed up with looked like spam and that’s why you were not approved. I will approve your account now, but I request that you don’t act like you are now when you’re on the forum.

Patwhit01 said on Apr. 9, 2011

Hehehe. Sorry, Have a nice day Poe. (LOL, Your username is the same name as my cat)

Username? What's that? said on May. 23, 2012

I just joined, though it’s currently not really “alive” (for lack of better words). It would be cool if more people joined, that way it would become much more well known.
