Title: ***PLEASE READ*** Important new stuff with the board
Post by: Titan on September 16, 2013, 02:02:05 PM
Hope you guys like it. Just wanted to say some important things

1) you WILL have to log in twice. If it says you have an invalid password, let it email you and it should reset or restore it for you.
2) you may have to type in letters as a security measure for the first 5 posts. I got too annoyed with the spam bots on the old board so its an anti-bot measure. After 5, you should never have to do it again (and I think its for only new members so you shouldn't have to worry about it).
3) we did have to sacrifice avatars to get the conversion to work. Wish there was another way but it just couldn't be done. The old forum is still up for now so if you want your avatars, go to www.psx2central.com/forums (http://www.psx2central.com/forums), download them and reupload them.


Now for the fun stuff. Got some ideas on things to change.

-forum categories and the boards will be reorganized. I'm not gonna announce when that happens, you'll just find its different. Just need to figure out the structure. Cerberus, you had some great ideas and I'm gonna implement those

-new theme. This one is just temporary. I haven't looked too much in how to create your own themes but there's a lot of help on the SMF forums. This is what I'm gonna work on next. Ideas are greatly appreciated and if anyone wants to do it or help with it, just let me know :)

-new smilies. Yes Quddus, I do want to bring in new smilies :p

-eventually, I'm gonna trim down on members that never posted or even activated their accounts.


That should be it. If I think or find anything else, I'll post it :) Browse around, try out the board and enjoy :D

I noticed a couple too. I look at their IP and email and their register date. Seems they are still getting through. I'm deleting them as I see them. I'll look into addons on SMF that should help.
