  1. You mean when you select to follow a thread? When selecting it, I am giving the option of how I want to receive the notifications. It seems that the email option only goes out once a day or week. But let me dig deeper a little. This board is fairly new to me as well, so I am learning as we go along.
  2. Pbp

    Just let me know and I will setup a forum for you. Is simple as that.
  3. All the formatting issues should be resolved with the old data now. Thanks!
  4. I have an open request with the support here to see about importing all the old forum posts. It seems like it can be done, just something that is out of my control to resolve. I do have SQL exports of the old board which I am saving. The old forum lives on an account with BlueHost, which in a few months I am going to let expire. I wanted to make sure I exported all the information, files, images and SQL I could prior to that date. By that time, I am hopeful most of the post will already be imported her, letting us all move to a new chapter for the D6 community.
  5. I created a new Forum for Torg Eternity which hopefully by year's end will be a publication we can finally purchase. Ulisses Spiele has been updating their website for the past few month of the various sections of their soon re-release of the game. I included the link to their website for each section and a forum to discuss what you think of their vision of the game and how it relates or differs from the game of the past. Hope you enjoy. What other forums do you want to see here? Let me know Thanks Magman
  6. I re-opened some more of the old forums content. There are still a couple left, like the Play By Post forums, which were more or less just Legacy forums since nobody was playing them for a while. I will make the visible in the near future. Thanks Magman
  7. Greeting D6 community! Several months ago, I had to abandon the current setup for the forums because of continued hacks into the board. Each time I cleaned up and tried to secured the boards, I failed and the hacks persisted. I didn't give up but did abandon the outdated vbulletin board. I understand there are still many sites out there running this same version 4 of vbulletin without issue. I didn't have the time to dig deep into why my board had so many security issues - obviously, the software can be maintained by those with more of a background to its coding than I. So rather than running in circles, I opted to close it for a time while I decided on the next move. I had no intentions of shutting the board down permanently, but weighed my choices during this lapse. I choose to go with IPB over other forum software I reviewed. A decision I hope the community here can grow to accept and love. Most, if not all, of the background issues of maintaining the security and code of the forum now falls to their support team, rather than me. I am paying for their cloud service, having to worry only about managing the configuration of the boards. In time, when things all settle where they belong, the site should turn along smoothly hopefully with little maintenance.
  8. All the old content is here, save for the images. Going to see if I can pull them off the old boards and store them here in the gallery. Another project added on the ToDo list. I will be slowly making the old content visible, but would like to get feedback and what "NEW" forums you guys want.
  9. LOL yes there was, but it wasn't mandatory or forced. It was a way for me to weed out Bots. But let me know what you want your username to be, I will change it. Thanks Magman
  10. Apologies for taking so long. Had lots going on and the forum being constantly hacked didn't help. Expecting good things here, a new beginning! As I mentioned, I want you all to voice what you would like to see, changed, or whatever on the boards. If I can make it happen, I will Magman
  11. Yes, moving from one software to the new one, I have to see, which I do not think, that they both have the same type of formatting rules within the Database. I still need to go through all the Admin Configures to see what can be turned on. But, at this point, the imported data is more or less, legacy information and might have to suffer with formatting issues. But I will see what I can do... Still a learning curve here for me. Just keep pointing out the discrepancies and I will see what can be done to resolve Thanks Magman!
  12. Formatting off, meaning with "Links" and "Quotes" ?
  13. Sure thing, no problem. Hopefully you can see the Chatter Box that is back online?
  14. You mean theme for the boards, as in formatting, colors.. etc. Or Setting, as in relation to Forum Topics? Magman!
  15. Again, been working with the site's customer support group and they are taking the old board content to hopefully import here. It would have been more challenging to link any of the images we have in the threads, which I recall really wasn't many. I opted to tell them just skip over the images. This will have an effect of having an empty space where the image used to live. If need be, as we uncover post with missing images, I can pull up the old archive files and re-insert them. But I felt the actual content of the posts were more important to get up and running now. For those wanting to see changes to the old board, here is your opportunity. Chime in and let me know what you want or do not want here. Might as well give the boards an overhaul while in the setup phase. The great thing about IPB forums running from their cloud is it comes with a host of built-in services: Pages, Blogs, Store, Downloads and images. Will measure them all up for their features and will try and implement them best for our purposes. Thanks all for sticking around. I know the boards have been quiet/dead for a long time as D6 continues to linger sluggishly about. Perhaps when Torg: Eternity finally gets released, new conversations will be brought here. Anyhow, glad to be almost back up and running! Magman!
