Fourm Tweaks

I've done some adjusting to the Forum. You probable noticed that the Board Index has become smaller and subforum links now display in the forum descriptions. The Other Fantasy Games and Gaming Group Forums have been condensed. This was done so the Board Index isn't just a lengthy page of infrequently used forums. Although I'm not a fan of clutter, subforum links have been activated on many forums. This was done so deep forums are easier to get at rather than sifting through forum link after forum link, waiting for each forum page to load before delving deeper into the abyss.

Essentially, I've ranked convenience over clutter.

Another thing you may notice, if you look at the very bottom of the Board Index in the Statistics section, is the following line:

Post #1 has been made by drathe, topic #1 has been created by drathe; registered user #1 is drathe.(History)[ Milestones: 1000 | 150 | 50 ]

This line is a Milestone Marker. As certain Forum Milestones are reached, they will be announced and recorded here. The History link lists past Milestones that have been achieved, and the numbers in square brackets at the end of the line, show which Milestones are coming up. Right now, the Milestone Marker displays as above. That's because this new function has only just been implemented (the past Milestones were manually added to the database). As the upcoming Milestones are reached, the Milestone Marker line will change reflecting the new Milestones and who achieved them. I hope everyone has fun with this new function as we race to be the one to achieve the next Milestone.

But the best of the best of the changes, is the ability to just click the forum row that you highlight by hovering over and voila! You're now loading that forum. No more moving the mouse over to the text title to click. Unless of course, you're moving to click a subforum link. ;)

Forum Maintenance

Heads-up! The forum will be down for maintenance and updating later this evening (November 18th, 2009). Beginning roughly around 9:00pm EST.

UPDATE: That took far too long! Big security updates bring a lot of major bumps and bruises. Think they're all worked out now. *fingers crossed* If anyone finds any bugs or glitches, please let us know in the feedback section.

Just a heads up to all. The forum will be undergoing maintenance Tuesday February 23rd and will be unavailable most of the day. Cross your fingers that all goes well. (database will be backed up before any changes are made ;) )

*crosses fingers*

Language Packs

After Tuesday's maintenance, all languages packs were uninstalled and updated versions were installed. Anyone using languages other than the default British English will need to set their preferred language in the User Control Panel again.

Gaming Group Forum Condensed.

The lack of use for the Gaming Group Forums have left many subforums empty. All Gaming Group topics have been condensed to the parent forum and topic titles have been edited to reflect areas in which the games are available, or being played in. These topics may appear as unread to those who have already viewed them due to the topics being moved. Simply reread the posts, or click the Mark Topics Read link at the top-right of the thread list.

Hello great HeroQuest community!

We have recently updated our forum to help maintain its security. Should you discover any errors, or functions that no longer perform as they did before, please let us know.

Thank you.

Forum Maintenance, afternoon of July 19, 2011 EST (GMT-5)

This coming Tuesday afternoon the forum will be disabled for scheduled maintenance.

Scrap that. I did a test run at home and it took about 10 minutes. I went ahead and did it this evening when no one else was on the forum.

*Updated* All language packs now fully updated.

Forum Maintenance 22nd-23rd

The forum will be down for maintenance sometime during the 22nd or 23rd when I have time to perform some updates. I'm not sure exactly when, but it shouldn't be much more than an hour. If you drop in during the 22nd or 23rd and find the forum locked for maintenance, the forum should be available again after an hour(ish).
