For those of you familiar with Black Flower Music’s rich history, you know that we used to have a torrent tracker.
If I recall correctly, it ceased operations in 2007 or 2008. I’m not entirely certain anymore. We had built a decent-sized community, and I made a lot of friends. However, for reasons beyond my control, I had to get rid of it. It was mostly security reasons, and the fact that most software didn’t get along with my php configuration.
Moving on to present day, BFM has a blog, a solid podcasting platform, social media integration, and a growing netlabel. We are lacking what I consider to be the most integral part of what made BFM what it used to be. Sharing.
Remember kids, sharing is caring.
The point of this site was to introduce people to things you normally wouldn’t find elsewhere. Things that were a bit different, but not necessarily ‘weird.’ I wanted things to be interesting again.
Last time, the software was a bit danky. This time around, I’ve included IRC, shoutbox, games, bonus points, and a whole lot of cool modern features. And yeah, this time the block that says “forums” actually goes somewhere.
One bit of advice though, it has a problem with redirecting people to places. Be sure to bookmark that link in case you ever end up on a blank page. You’ll still be logged in, and you’ll still be able to do what you were doing. Also, please be sure to read the FAQs after signing up.
In addition to installing a new torrent tracker, I have also set up a brand new forum.
We used to have a phpbb2 forum, but now we’ve upgraded to phpbb3. It also has a new look and feel. You’ll have to register for the two sites separately, and I suggest using the same username so nobody gets confused.
Hope you enjoy! Good luck, and happy sharing.
