1) I prefer to leave that off by default.

2) Gantry intended to copy these for everyone.

4) Yes, I suspect people want Carc-specific smilies.

5) I am interested to hear more about that. Send me a pm or email.

I like the front landing page. Nice work. A couple more suggestions for the Forums...

(1) There is a setting to turn on notifications in a thread when you post in the thread. I found that is very helpful. You may want to consider that as a default global setting. (Members can change it if they like).

Anyone can set this for themselves. Go to Profile, Modify Profile, Notifications. Check off the first checkbox. As Scott stated, we prefer to leave this off globally, but individuals can set this.

(2) The post counts and Merit changed for a few folks and not everyone makes some of the stats and reporting a bit of a misrepresentation. I would vote for no past history on member profiles or all. A blended approach does skew the results.

I am going to do this, but it is a manual process thus incredibly slow. I will probably do a couple of hours a week to migrate the bulk of members over in the coming weeks.

(4) Interested in building / creating a more robust Smiley Set?

I had custom smileys on the old site, they are easily enough transferred over if Scott wants? Plus I agree we should have Carc-related smileys for sure, perhaps put up a post asking if members want to contribute?

Thanks. I have changed mine. I was not sure if the setting was by choice or not. Perhaps after things settle out a bit, a brief FAQ for members about some settings they can control would assist members in tailoring the site to their specific needs.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like a lot of work. Appreciate your efforts.

I can certainly make any or all of the smileys I have on my two sites available. Scott is a member of SaskGames so he can have a peak at the smileys in use there. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I'll take care of the smilies over the next day or two.

The people don't check that they have to come here in the new forum.

I can't write there any PM to all the members. That is closed.



as said, a pm by one of the admins to all old members might make sense...

I managed to log in to the old forums and I'm in the process of sending e-mails to all registered users. Apologies to those who are already here.

I also disabled the ability to post on the old forum, and I posted a message at the top of every page that we've moved to the new forums. Hopefully people get the hint now.

I looked at the smilies on the old forum, and at the smilies on SaskGames and BGG. I don't see the need for most of them. I added the meeple smile from BGG, and I found a bunch of hidden smilies which are now visible.

It would also be good if you are sending a message to all at the old forum. Then get some members an e-mail that do not look maybe the forum, because it no longer worked.  ;)

Hmm... I see. People will have to copy-paste it then. The link was just for convenience. The main thing is that people know we are back in business.

For some reason the "show most recent posts" link doesn't show all the most recent posts, well at least for me. If I look at recently updated posts through tapatalk there are several posts and threads that aren't showing up on the forums recent posts feature. Any ideas why?

I see only the five posts. But I don't know if they are the newest posts.

Congratulations to you both:
