Well here it is: the new Web site! I hope you like the design. I'm aware of a couple of Mozilla-related glitches which I'll try to iron out at some point, but they're very minor.

Here's some stuff you really need to know:


  • Fix your sigs! I've done my very best to convert the e107 forums to phpBB, but not everything could be fully translated. As such, some elements of your signatures might not work. Go into your profiles and have a fiddle.
  • The forum layout's changed a little. We've bunched the RP stuff together into the Operations->Discussion forum, so general chat about story-related stuff goes in there. Logs go in the Log Review forum for now. There are changes afoot in that respect, but you don't have to worry about that just yet.
  • The two Operations forums default to in-character. If you want to post out-of-character in those forums please use double brackets. I'll be checking. Razz
  • Everywhere else defaults to OOC, but you can be IC if you want. The Off-Topic forums (like this one) are entirely OOC.
  • I'm not going to be harsh about locking threads left right and centre - unless I'm provoked. Razz I can't speak for d4sh, of course - he can be as evil as he wants!
  • Hovercraft captains are in control over their member groups on these forums. This means you can (and really should) add all your crew to the groups, so that their names appear the right colour.


The site is not yet at the stage I want it to be. As it stands, the forums are now open and normal faction business can resume! However, the site proper is incomplete, and is basically serving as a placeholder until GooRP is implemented (along with a proper news and calendar system). The application form is working though, so by all means direct people to the site.

As I have stated elsewhere, I will not be updating the content of the site (unless it's an emergency) as I need to devote as much time as possible to getting the new scripts finished. This will probably take three weeks at least (I've had to push the deadline back because of coursework, revision, and a severe underestimate of how much effort was involved in just getting the forums to work).

If anyone has any problems of questions, let me know in this thread!

(Oh, yeah, and I know I still have to make new images to replace the 'quote', 'edit' buttons and so forth. I'll do that as soon as I can.)

I'm reporting 0% eye hurtage from this color scheme.

And my rotator still works, which is very odd for a standard phpbb forum.

You dare call Proc's work 'standard'?
I'm sure he made some proper adjustments. :-p

Looks good, Proc.

Should the "Alumni" forum be available for viewing for people who aren't registered/logged in? It is now.

Yeah, Tax, when I noticed your sig didn't work, I gave phpBB a severe beating, and now it's caved in. Wink

Bah, I forgot to mention the Alumni forum. I put that there so ex-Glitchers (like Khaos, Glitch himself, Wolf etc.) can have a place to talk with us and each other away from the public. Wink It's fine for people to see it from the front page: means old members can see it exists whether or not they're logged in. Only alumni and faction members can read it and post in it, though.

Looking good so far mate, although a lot of the older pages on the main site are broken Razz

Broken? How so? I know they're all out-of-date, but the theme should work and the links should too. The images don't work with the new theme, of course - I'll deal with that when I update the site contents.

Aw, heck. The Machine Alliance forums were broken bloody ages ago, and were taken down.

Rarebit posted that on DN1 somewhere, Tax mentioned it on temptgs.tk when this website was down.
