Hello!

I am very concerened about the forum and if compared to other forums, this looks quite old-school these are my Questions:

1) Can we use NodeBB (Modded for AltCoin Symbols)
2) Why spend $ 1.5 Million United States Dollars when you could get open source software, afterall A Simple Machine Forum is Open-Source
3) Why there is no reputation system?
4) Why are accounts > 3 Years old but never used and is only "Brand New", "Newbie", "Jr. Member" Not Deleted
5) Why is this $ 1.5 Million USD System Open-Source
6) Can Anyone Develop a Logo for this forum?
7) Can Anyone Use CloudFlare Paid DDoS System?
8 ) Could BitCoinTalk be Held on Multiple Servers and have Mirrors?
9) Why exactly would you spend $ 1.5 Million and when will the new forum come out?
10) Could you please you 2FA Authentication?
11) Please Ban +18 Stuff!
12) What is the Square Root of Infinitum Divided by 0.

P.S. 1) I can setup a NodeBB System with the Forum Imported & I can use temporary free CloudFlare!

Also! Please don't be angry about me ranting about the $ 1.5 Million!

1) Not sure about various fonts/styling options that will be available
2) Current open source software doesn't fit the forum's needs. The SMF software that the forum uses now is very old and very heavily modified. It has taken Theymos and others a ton of time to develop custom things that make the forum usable, but it prevents the forum from ever being updated. New software is being built from the ground up so that this wont be a problem in the future.
3) There is a reputation system. Check out the Trust system in any market related board, or check Meta, there is always discussion about it.
4) I don't think I can answer why individuals decide to stop using their accounts. I'm sure they have their own reasons, so its up to them.
5) Open source is sort of what the Bitcoin movement is about.
6) The UI for the new forum isn't being developed yet, but once functionality is taken care of, we have UI guys who will make any visuals needed.
7) Cloudflare will not be used as it requires giving the forum's keys to a 3rd party company, making it much more vulnerable to security breaches.
Cool Bitcointalk is hosted on multiple servers. That is our anti DDOS solution at the moment.
9) Because it was necessary to get the job done right. The Forums had the money, and it doesn't need anything besides new forum software, why not get the best possible? There is no ETA because we make arbitrary guesses, and then people get mad when what is pretty much just a guess is wrong.
10) Yes, there will be 2FA
11) No
12) Any number divided by zero can be assumed to be a value approaching an infinite asymptotic value.

.FORTUNE.JACK.

2) Think they wanted one specifically tailored to their needs and simple machines is pretty dated with lots of issues
3)? Pretty sure the rep system that is used here will be transferred over
4) Why should they be? Someone might use them in the future
6) Sure. Go ahead. Not sure if they'll use it but someone might.
9) When its ready. It's being tested so problems can be minimized
10) 2-factor is coming.
11) Lol. Why would they ban 18+ stuff? This isn't a forum for kids.

Epochtalk is under development and will be looking for outside contributions when we are ready. Please keep your eyes on our repos as they are currently built and tailored for the purpose of Bitcointalk. If you would like any of the features NodeBB has, please be specific and send us some issues on our Github: https://github.com/epochtalk/epochtalk

NSFW threads are marked as such. Simply don't click on them and you'll be fine.

“Not safe for work”. It's not literal, and it usually refers to sexual content.

About CloudFlare, I was referring to DNS Protection which involves using CloudFlare's DNS, we don't give the keys!

This has been discussed before. We don't use CloudFlare because of potential risks.
