New Forums, Same Great Content

Post by Ttech » Thu Jan 26, 2017 3:20 am

Hi Folks!

We've recently done some intensive maintenance on the forums and sites, so please let me know if there are any issues you experience.
There have been some changes though:
  • * File Corruption: As has been happening for some time PHPbb content that is more then ~2 years old may be corrupted! Let me know and we'll try to get this restored.
    * Old theme is sadly no longer developed, we're looking for new themes to use!
    * All content and posts have been moved!

I was wondering what was going on. Glad to see it all worked out.

If I can suggest something, could the new theme emphasize which boards have a new post a bit more distinctively? Blue boxes with white text are difficult to differentiate at a glance.

Good job, Adran!





(And when he says "intensive maintenance", he means "putting it back together because it all broke like we've been telling George it would for years".)

Also also: The forum crash knocked out the anti-bot stuff we had for new accounts. We're trying to avoid letting them in, but if you see any suspicious posts please let a moderator or admin know, and do not click any hyperlinks or attachments.

 The old theme is, unfortunately, no longer being updated, and isn’t compatible with the new version of the forum software. It’s pretty much the only reason we were still on the old version of the forum software until it literally stopped working.
