Forum Migration
#1
So after many years of running the forums, since it has somewhat died due to the use of whatsapp and teamspeak, I have decided that its not worth paying the rather upkeep cost on the forums every 6 months with the minimal donations I have got over the years. (Its about £50 every 6 months, the box/dedicated server itself is paid for but the cpanel web license is also another £15pm, topped off with another £15pm for tcadmin to run our ts and game servers). I have turned off the gmod servers (did this before christmas and I dont think anyone noticed) and only thing running is a factorio server I run manually for a few of us and teamspeak.

It took a day or so to get the migration tool to work which is why the forums have been in maint mode, the usergroups got corrupted on the migration, but all the members area posts and content are good. When I moved it all, the whole forum went public so I have just setup Guest, Registered and Admin for now, ill sort this over the next few days.

I also need to find a theme and someone to help moderate and migrate some of the older posts in to an archive so we can tidy up the forums.

Oh I am aware that some of the imported posts have obtained some funky extra letters and garbage text, this is from when the database corrupted many moons ago, I cant really fix this without restoring the old forums and moving one post at a time.

+Added New Post Button to the menu
+Moved all posts to the ARRRcive, members should have access, any posts you want restoring then please message me.
+404 tags added to forum members names when in the right group

Anyone who cant login, the reset password feature works fine, but if your username isnt working then let me know as it might have migrated a steam/facebook/twitter user account over which will need fixing from the migration.

+Forums now force HTTPS and secure.
+Fav icon restored (the little 404 logo on the browser tab)
+Mobile Theme Installed, Tested and looks better than the last pos we had.

Time to sleep! Is the theme to bland, boring or need something else adding?

Used to having something a bit sharper but this new forum tool being free doesn't have the nicest skins going. This was clean and can be worked on but its very grey.

I kinda like it? Maybe a few bits of the 404 green dotted about too?

Do you still have the cut out of Dukeys face so we can make a forum smiley?
You've got to love to be hated, find the good in being bad, oh, the crowd is full of gentlemen, but they've paid to see the cad.
