[ATTN] You might have heard by now...



  • ...but Ambrosia, being unable to further upgrade the current UBB software, is moving to an InvisionBB system. They have a script to attempt to move all the topics, user accounts, and other information over - and andrew is aiming for this week to be "zero hour", well... "zero week". So, if the boards drastically undergo a change in appearance, try not be too alarmed.

    Also realize that this is a script written for just this purpose, ASW had to pay for one since it didn't come by default (and besides, this is a modified BB board, so any conventional scripts would need modification anyway), so there may be some bugs and stuff to work out after the transition. Please be patient through this process, and prepare to embark on a journey of drastic proportions.

    See you on the other side!

  • A quote from andrew himself:

    Quote

    Stolen from the guarded archives of the War Room, just yesterday:
    The forums should be converted this week -- should be interesting to see how it goes. I'm sure it'll require a good bit of tweaking before we're satisfied with it.

    Also, it shouldn't make that much of a difference, but if you're posting in the story from about now until the forum switch, save a backup copy of your posts in case ASW decides to start the switch while you're busy replying. As Theo knows, there's nothing like spending hours on a story post (chronicle in his case) just to have it get lost due to something on the server end.

    I do have a copy on my harddrive of the entire story up to my last post, just in case something does go horribly wrong.

  • Good thinking.

    We use Invision 1.3 for our internal communications at work, and it's not too bad. The upcoming version 2 looks like it's got some nice new features, too.

  • Hmmm...UBB, Change, Other Side, Cythera Forum......Geez, if this is going to be all that then it is going to be a little too much like the chimera crossing the void, into the unkown. Then again I'm just rambling...

    P.S. Do you think we'll have sticky topics now?

  • This will be my last post until after the change is reasonably complete. I will take a screen shot of this for record keeping sakes.

    Thank you world.

  • Post here, but after this post, before the change to the new webboards and you may get free karma. ;)

  • Why? What's so special about posting here?

  • Nothing, it wouldn't really have any effect anyway - wrong board for that.

  • Oh yeah, good point - Invision's ranks are based on post counts. Moki could always make creative use of the 'warning' system, though.

  • I dont much see ranks, but I do quite enjoy member numbers, just for amusement, and COLORS. This also seems a bit more open and freerange, and has guided me to posting more than usual today



  • What happened to the archives?



  • pretty trippy



  • Whoa, they changed the link - it'll probably take a while for everyone to find their way back.



  • I'm afraid I found the old webboard more... umm... mature. All the clickable smilies remind me of gaming forums.



  • Karma looks like it's gone :/

    On the plus side, the member # is interesting knowledge

    ...although, to be fair, one of the reasons I find it interesting is because I 0wns all of j00 (in the metaphorical sense)

    That is why I don't want the member number :p

    I felt respectable with 4 karma and 1400 posts, but with a massive member number, I feel like a lesser being ;). Meh, I'll get over it because I control the two best old smilies; tongue :p and eek.:eek:



  • Just wait until Slayer comes around. I think he's two-digit.

    He's 60-80 something. gandreas appears to be number 9 though.



  • Do you know if Andrew is planning on reskinning the board? We have a graphic design student on staff that made over the Green Dragon for us. I was going to attach a screenshot, but permissions on the upload directory are incorrectly set (although I'd be surprised if attachments were allowed, anyway. Perhaps Andrew just hasn't disabled the feature yet?)
