Welcome to RPGamer's new forums running under Vanilla Forums! If you're run into any odd or strange issues after our software migration please see this thread for details

Pack Up!

PawsPaws PurrRPGamer Staff
It's finally arrived!

We're moving to the vB software on <span style="text-decoration:underline">Wednesday, July 14th</span>; the upgrade is planned between 4pm and 11pm PST. Not sure when that is for you? http://www.timeanddate.com/
The database will move with us, but we expect to have a fair few bumps along the way:
1. If you feel a thread would be damaged by a loss of posts (such as the RP section and the Completed Games List), please archive your work Wedneday morning. We don't expect any loss.
2. The spoiler tag may be down. You've been warned, and we apologize if anyone sees something they didn't want to.
3. Most users will find they cannot log in when visiting the forums for the first time. Please request a password reset. We apologize for the inconvenience. If for some reason your password reset does not come through, users can email board@rpgamer.com starting after 10am PST on Thursday July 15th.

Please feel free to post any questions you may have here before 10am PST that morning.

    Woo! Finally!

    Not sure why the spoiler tag has to change. Another site I visit has vBulletin and a working spoiler tag (although the tag is [Spoiler instead of [Spoil).

    It's not that we won't have spoiler tags, it's more that old tags won't be working until someone edits them.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    On another subject does anyone have any cheat codes for either infinite health and/or ammo in Duke Nukem Forever? The last boss is really a pain in the rear.

    We have a number of members who will be in the same situation. Resetting the passwords is both necessary and smart, so I'm glad we're doing it.

    That's under discussion. Right now, likely; we may change up how the moderation team functions, and if so we'll hammer those out once we transfer and post whatever information is necessary.

    We've built several custom tags and features onto the boards over the years, including the way spoilers work; converting to a system that has spoiler tags innately built in will mean some adjustment and we want to warn people in case that adjustment is not universal. Mac is correct; we'll be fixing it.

    Wow am I subtle...

    Why would I need cheat codes unless I already had the game?

    And looking at the memberlist it seems we got some more "stale zeroes"

    I do have a functioning spoiler tag for the new boards. Some current posts may not transition correctly though.

    Judging from some puttering around on the vB demo site it looks like preservation of "newbies can't create threads" will require promotions, ditto for the custom title thingy.

    Finally! It'll be good to finally be rid of this ancient decrepit software. The only thing I'll miss is the lack of double spacing between sentences displaying in posts on vB software.

    To be frank Simple Machines would have been a good alternative if vB wasn't good.

    Hah, I'll have you know a number of the SQL queries that enabled me to do the migration came from one of the writers of Simple Machines Forum. :) Thanks again, Unknown!
