      Server Merge and Changes to Imps Village   04/30/17

      The old server sections will still be viewable at the bottom of the forum list under Legacy Servers, but read only. If you wish for any thread to be moved to the new sections, please report your own thread to bring it to our attention and tell us where you need it to go.

Imps update status

142 posts in this topic

Howdy Imps!

No doubt, you're probably wondering WTF after seeing the forum ;-). We've moved to a new server and have taken a huge upgrade in forum software, and are still working on getting everything back in place. If you're looking for details of the move, look no further than this thread.

As I've said, this is still a work in progress. Upcoming things:

  • A non-default forum theme
  • Faster, unrestricted searching (hopefully allowing 3-char words!)
  • Access to the old old archives
  • General cleanup work for old/defunct groups and forums
  • Speed tweaks
  • Fixing a whole lot of broken images

So we still have a ways to go, but I wanted to get this open to the public ASAP. Just be warned, more rapid changes are expected :blink:

Welcome to the new server!

It's certainly slicker so far. Now to find all the new settings for me to fiddle with.

EDIT: On which note, anybody seeing the post side bar with the messed up Server field, I'm working on that. But the change rearranged all the control panel stuff :(

Suddenly my signature is 9803423 pixels tall! Yikes!

All fixed now. Shame they don't scroll any more, but oh well!

It'll take me a little bit to adjust to all this :P Thanks Kyek!

OOF. Whoever designed this theme needs their brain/eyes checking.

But rest of the upgrades seem worth it. Lovely job!

A hard limit on sig sizes or scrolling again is a must... a lot of people have some really massive sigs.

It's different... It will take some time getting used to. But overall it looks great.

Yep, most of the things mentioned here are forthcoming :) My schedule's a bit packed, so it was a choice between launching now in our current state, or launching tomorrow morning with a handful of fixes. My logic: downtime=bad ;-).

So it'll be a few days, but everything will be fixed up soon.

I hate the scrolling sigs. You should make it an option that we can have enabled or disabled. I would definitely prefer to be able to view the full sigs.

Okay guys, so I've fixed a few settings, will get back to fiddling with things after I've done some work for my course. Between us, me and Kyek should have things back up within the next few days. Although I have found a few things already that I can't change ;)
