    Hello peeps

    Welcome back Check out our Discord server, as that has some good activity (link in upper right of forums area).

    Hello there!

    There is a permanent link to the Discord at the top of the forums in the right column, where it says "Join Us". Welcome to the server
  3. Hey all, I've added two new themes to the boards. I have arbitrarily made the Horde one the default, but there is an Alliance version also. I am leaving the green Legion and default White there for others who either don't like change or dark colored forums. Let me know (screenshot if you can) if you find an area where the text on background doesn't have enough contrast to be able to read it. I've gone through a bunch of the pages and I've fixed the things I've found so far. Happy new expansion! To change your theme, go to the bottom center of the page --> Theme --> pick one.
  4. Everything should be working again. I'll get the dark green theme back ASAP

    August 9 2017 Upgrade

    Update: I've enabled the clubs feature. You can see the features and some example screenshots here. These can be created by anyone right now. Some potential things people might use them for is maybe a class specific group where you can post useful information (spec guides, PVE or PVP builds, etc). Lore guides/discussions? Spoiler discussions? Guild chat areas? RP story line discussions? Up to you. I will be removing the collaboration area as soon as I can make sure that the posts and stories that were posted there aren't deleted. Discord widget is prettier, and the join link is easier to see (I haven't tested it to see if it works though, let me know if it's spitting out an expired link). Removed the old World of Warcraft RSS feed, which hasn't worked for almost a year now. Replaced it with Warcraft Twitter feed. I might implement the WoWhead news feed also, but I need to make sure it doesn't bog THIS site down if WoWHead is having problems (this used to be a problem back when we let people easily direct link to items on WoWhead).

    August 9 2017 Upgrade

    Update: I can't get Illiden to show up, and default text is back to an off blue from the original theme, but otherwise everything should be roughly back to normal. The new theme options seem a bit more intuitive and exposed (as in, I don't have to search through 5,000 lines of CSS code in 15 different files to figure out why this or that is blue), so I will be looking into that this weekend and get things back to the same or better than they were. Currently what you see is a mixed-up mutt of the old theme and the new forum software theme-ing setup. Also, it looks like IPS now has a built in Group option called "clubs" that might be similar to the "collaboration" thing that never really took off the way I hoped. I'll play around with it and see if it will make things easier for people to do collaborations without being buried in several layers of clicks and non-intuitive setup process. Finally, if you liked the clean white default theme, you can now choose it as your personal theme (bottom center of the page, "theme" dropdown, "4.2").

    It's a default setting. The reason there is a limit is because it gives reputation points. I'll increase the limit.

Post them here This post has been promoted to an article

    Roleplay account settings

    Hmm, it appears the forums auto-detects your timezone based on whatever device you are using to connect with. I've found a way to turn it off for individual members, but I don't see a way to do it for everyone. I guess if you are having problems with the times on the site, let me know?? *shrug*

    Roleplay account settings

    Are you getting different times for different characters? The calendar is going to post for your profile's timezone, and automatically calculate the time for people in different time zones (to be safe, I suggest putting in the server time in the description since everyone knows how to calculate from that)

    iPad's can't do flash, I think. Not sure if Discord uses it for the webpage, but that would be my guess. Not enough room for the app?

    [A] Island Beach Party

    ((make sure you throw it on the new events calendar, there's general, horde, and alliance categories))
  22. I cleared the test site ( last night. It will be moving to a different hosted server sometime tonight/tomorrow. There are a few more things I want to test/setup, but I'm pretty happy with the initial conversion. Currently I am tentatively planning on making the real move this weekend (June 18th-19th 2016). During that time, both sites will be offline for -at least- 24 hours, possibly longer. When it comes back up, there will only be the domain left. What you need to do: If you have multiple logins/characters here (and you haven't already contacted me, or you are happy with primary/secondary list I emailed out a while back), make sure you change all of their emails to be the same and either contact me with which character you want to be the primary login, or make sure you log out of that one last on Friday night (the 17th). I will be sending out another email like the last batch letting you know who will be designated primary with a list of the secondary accounts being attached to it. I will still be able to switch these around, if needed, after the move, but it will make my life much easier if you let me know before hand. If you have blogs (or friend's blogs) here that you want to save, please do so. I do plan to post the blogs on the new site in an archive format where you will only be able to see your own blogs, but it may take some time to make that bit of coding happen. Please save any group information you want to keep. I will be able to pull information out of the saved database tables if needed, but I will not be converting them on the new site. I still haven't decided on whether to acquire the Group Application on the new site yet or not. I am leaning towards 'yes', although I am disappointed not a single person played around with the group functionality on the test site while I had it installed. All forum posts, wall posts, and PMs will be transferred over. Chats will not. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
  23. bump! This is happening tonight. I will be turning off new registrations and the ability to make changes to your profile around 8pm EDT, so this is your last chance to self-link any of your alt accounts (see above). Once I have the final primary->secondary accounts master list created I will take the forums themselves down, probably around 10pm EDT, so if you are still posting around that time, make sure you make a copy of your writing so it isn't lost because the forum went down before you finished. Anything posted before the site goes down is safe and will be moved over. My guess is it will take at least 24 hours from the time the boards go down to when the new ones are available again. Most of this time is due to how long it takes IPS4 to relink member IDs, Post numbers, and convert internal links, which is out of my control. I'm hoping that the faster host machine will not take as long as the test run did, but I don't want to give false hope If you have any questions, let me know.

    Over the next week I will be setting up a test install of a new forum system that will eventually become the new TNG. It will likely be another month or so before it goes live. One of the problems I've been running into in finding an upgrade option is most of the forum systems I've been researching have a hard requirement that there be only one email per member. We currently have about 500 members that have more than one character on the forums. This is spanned over the 10+ years the forums have been active, so most of those aren't active. IPBoards ( has an RP mod/app that will allow users to create a master account and link new "characters" to post as. Here's some screenshots: I think this will make everyone's lives a bit easier going forward for posting as different characters. All current posts will be ported over, and you should be able to login just fine. I will be contacting those of you with multiple accounts directly to determine which one you want to be designated as the "main" account. This will probably happen either this weekend or next week. In the meantime, if you want to have some input on which base style to use, feel free to peruse I will be customizing them to be more WoW centric, and I will continue to have a light and a dark theme, most likely with Legion-esque color schemes.
