New forum software: part 2
« on: June 09, 2013, 07:21:37 pm »
Hi,

As you can see, the new software is live. I've worked hard on manually restoring all permissions, groups and moderator powers, but not everything's finished. However we don't want to make you have to wait endlessly, so we opened the forums up as soon as we thought they were ready to be used. I'm quite ill right now, so we'll finish it tomorrow.

The new forum software means all current bans and infractions are gone and that we're going to use a new system for warnings, which involves a loss of posting powers upon the accumulation of too many points.

If you had previously used the 'size' BBCode in your signature or a post you'll have to edit it.

If you notice anything wrong(I bet a lot is wrong) then please send me a private message explaining exactly what is wrong, where it is and when it happened(If applicable).

Thank you,
Frerk

More characters for sigs please.  Image links with urls can be quite long in terms of characters, especially when you use Mantles sig pictures.

He had spent his whole life despised and hated for the mere triviality of wearing dresses and make-up despite possessing a (rather magnificent) penis, and this persecution had fostered within him both a desperate yearning to be loved and appreciated, and an iconoclastic desire to subvert and destroy the odious traditions on which society was built.

Sorry, you can't repeat a karma action without waiting 1 hours.

You can use short URL's :P

(Only just found that out... by reading your post and trying it xD - in fact I'm going to add that in to offer a shorter version for people. inb4)
