Due to the messy user features on http://nycfurs.org, I have decided that it may be in the community's best interest to use this website as the social platform instead, while the website will remain for links and future material.
This would mean two things:
1. User registration is disabled
2. I will remove the "social media" aspects and keep the forums ONLY
This decision is due to the fact that Boonex Dolphin (the program I used for this website) was BUILT for social networking, while Buddypress is still just a wordpress addon. While both have the same features, I do not believe Buddypress is nearly as user-friendly. Not to mention, the platform's interface is VERY simple, outdated, and just plain ugly, in my opinion.
