We're Back!(Sorta)

  1. Welcome to the new forums!

    It may look a bit different as we have a different, more modern theme. Give it a chance the next couple of days to get used to it, well it's your only option really as at the moment we have no other theme. I'll work towards trying to restore our old one but it will be very difficult.

    Other than style, the problem is we have lost all the threads. We have reinstated a lot of admin-related threads, the PD ones(thanks to the PD guys for spending the past days going at it) and that's about it. I know it's hard to lose 4 years worth of memories and even the work you put in with the roleplay you were doing and had threads on the forums for it, but I'm hopeful that if everyone works together we can restore the forums we once had and build new memories.

    Users have lost their likes and everything - I understand this will upset a lot of people, but I beg of you to look past the whole community status that comes with likes(which by the way is none but to each their own) and be understanding and just participate on this new chapter.

    Over the next few weeks we'll work to restore every admin thread with proper information in them(as some are yet to be completed).

    We have spent a lot of time working these past few days to be able to bring back the forums and are very happy with the outcome, so I hope you leave your feedback in what can be improved or if you notice any bug, report it on the forum bugs section.

    Let's be respectful as a community and not steal anyones names, if you're caught stealing someones name to impersonate or be funny you will find yourself banned from our forums and the account will be restored to its owner.

    ALSO READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT@: For VIPs we will be setting a thread up where you can request your VIP usergroup on the forums. This might take a while to do so please be patient.

    I want to thank the admin team for the work done on restoring the forums and also everyone who messaged me for help or went through the process with us during this trip, it is definitely appreciated. If I didn't reply, I am ever so sorry, only human and I was trying to juggle everything at once.

    Enjoy and let's rebuild this together! We will be opening registrations within 2 hours but probably in an hour or two.

  3. I feel a special thank you is in order for @Trippy specifically, who has worked far more than anyone would have expected him to, and has been instrumental in the rebuilding of the forums. Most of what you will see here can be attributed to him in some way, and we owe him a hell of a lot.

  4. A big thank you to @Trippy for spending countless hours trying to fix the server. He had to re-do everything, a big thanks to @Kingston @Quartz for helping him. Just like to say thank you to the admins who re-built the threads, that took a lot of time and effort, so good job mens. Finally, please be patients with us, it's going to take a while to get used to everything and actually setup everything correctly.
  5. Great work to everyone involved in getting the forums back up. I can see it has been days of hard work getting it to this point and in my opinion it looks better than ever before. Within time we'll be back where we were before. Thanks to everyone for getting this going again as I know it must have been heart breaking and demoralizing to lose almost everything entirely. Well done to everyone. Especially @Trippy as he's put all his attention and energy in to building up these forums again.Kudos to all.
