Welcome to the new board!
« on: January 13, 2008, 06:52:07 PM »

New software!
We've switched to Simple Machines Forum, which enabled some interesting options, and has handy plug-ins available.

Registering is back!
It is possible for potential members to register again! Whoohoo! While registering one has to pass two security plugins, so that should keep bots out. *knocks on wood*

Gallery!
A gallery has been added to the forum, everyone (excluding guests and banned members) can add their photo's, which will be added after being approved.
A big thank you goes out to Darkon for adding his archive to the gallery! (Yes, one wonders why he has an archive of us... :fear: )

If you want images removed from your gallery, please PM me for the moment!

Spoiler!
A new spoiler option has been included as well. Now you can add what is being spoilered to the tag.

Example:

Code: [Select]
[spoiler=Magician: Apprentice]OMG! There was a storm![/spoiler]
Leads to:

Spoiler: Magician: Apprentice • show
OMG! There was a storm!


The quick-button in the editor is:

The Golden Donkey
It's back with a vengeance... it's polished... and it's more annoying than ever: The Golden Donkey! (Baz, be wary)



With this HoW originalTM offenders will be tagged "Dunce!" and get all kinds of restrictions: annoying ones. Although it's a good-hearted punishment, it's the step in between a warning and a ban. (Note that this isn't "the second step" if you're breaking the rules.  Punishments are judged by each case, you could get an instant ban if the situation justifies it.)

Note!
As you probably can see, we're not quite done with customising the forum. This'll be done while we're running. So if you see any messed up designs/glitches, hope it's over soon or report it!

It's a start. Small, but nice one.

The gallery is a gift from Jaz. I'm just the fool who spend his time putting most of it back.

The pips were altered and changed so they match the ranks. You start with a wooden spoon and work your way up until you have enough for a silver sword, from there onwards until you get a gold sword. All the way till you have 5 gold sword and the final King rank at 10k. If I remember right.

Return of the Golden Donkey. Perfect. :)

I am impressed, it looks great, although I don't seem to see the old feature of viewing posts since my last visit. Am I missing something?

Woo! Looking good, I would glomp you, but I am afraid it would probably kill you. How would anything get done then?

Perhaps you shall attain the rank of a golden sword. But smite me? Never.

Yay! New awesome! But I must say it's a bit hard to distinguish prior posts from each other when making a new one, I didn't realise there was a distinction at first. But oh well, I'll get over it. Great job by the way.
