General / Any last things need doing before opening doors to all members?
« on: February 08, 2013, 07:47:13 PM »
Title says it all. It's almost 8pm my time, I was thinking about opening the new forums up to everyone tomorrow morning sometime. Let me know if there's anything else critical that needs to be done first.

No new posts allowed by regular members on old forums, if someone needs a new post, any moderator or staff can create one for them. We'll leave the old ones open to posting for another week or so.

Now am going to go have dinner and a beer or three

General / Topics: old board to new board
« on: February 08, 2013, 07:12:03 PM »
I've disabled creating new posts for regular members on the old forum. At some point I will also disable replies on existing posts entirely, but this will probably be a week or more to let existing threads finish.

My recommendation to everyone is, if your topic is still actively being discussed, continue it on the new boards if you think discussion will continue for some time.

If you want to continue it, I suggest putting a link on the old thread to the new thread, and conversely from beginning first post of the new thread to the old forum thread. You can even direct people to an exact post in a thread by clicking on the message icon, which changes the address in your browser's address bar to that particular post. See the attached image for where to click.

General / Accents and board languages

kettlefish, I recall a thread someplace about the old board not being able to display the proper German accent marks. Is this something that is desired for these boards? I can make that happen if we need to.

the captcha is hard, but it deters spammers. there is one level harder actually so I thought I'd go easy on you guys :)

You only have to do the captcha the first 2 or 3 times then you can post at will.

I think Stinky-ing the old board is probably the best option. Are we going to just keep the current (old) boards or are you going to/able to revert to the board from a few months back?

I won't be able to revert the old boards. The sneaky hacker who corrupted the database made so much of a mess it's basically impossible without an army of trained monkeys and 4 or 5 years. We'll just link to it and mark it read-only. Of course members can copy & paste old threads into here or link to old ones to carry on discussions. I'll post a how-to for that.

General / Re: expansions listed in member profiles
« on: February 08, 2013, 10:36:36 AM »
Sounds good to me. I'd include all four Big Boxes as a separate section separated by a line break. I'd also separate out the stand-alone games. Also, you forgot to include Carcassonne Dice and Carcassonne: Wind Rose. For the Hans im Gl├╝ck Almanac, you may want to add a small comment beneath it stating Spielbox Cult expansion just so people know why that's on the list. Otherwise, the site looks great and I think the expansion list is fine.

sounds like a job for Scott :)
