LCVG... We're back! A Primer on some changes.

Thank you all so much for your patience during the downtime in getting everything back up and running. The new software as you can see is now in place and we are working out some last minute issues that are desperately in need of correcting. Thankfully, these issues are all very minor and we have decided to not keep the forum down while we work them out. Here is a list of small things you will see changing over the next couple of days:

 

-The LCVG banner will be replacing that big old ugly Vbulletin logo. Our graphics man is working on the new banner and it will be ready hopefully by later tonight or tommorrow

 

-Many of the smilies available are pretty darn ugly as they each have a white border and do not look correct. We will be importing many of the old smilies we used to have to replace the current ones. In the meantime, please continue to use the current ones while we get that fixed.

 

-Some may notice some HTML/CSS type code in thier signatures. This is an unfortunate side affect of the new software switchover. Simply redoing your signatures will correct the issue and get things looking right.

 

-Avatar and sig size limits are in place. However due to the new software anyone with an avatar exceeding 105X105 had thiers removed for the relaunch. Please make sure you keep your avatars to a size of 105X105 and signatures to 450X150. If you need help getting things resized please feel free to email me (romier@lcvg.com) and I will do the work for you.

 

-Spoiler tags are working, they are just not listed in the panel options. You only need to use the "{spoiler}" and "{/spoiler}" (replace { with [) and they will work. If you do not see the full array of posting option you will want to do into your user control panel and then go under "Edit Options" . At the bottom you will see "Message Editing Interface". You will want to select "Standard Editor."

 

-We will be experiencing a little more downtime as we finalize the changes on the forums. The downtime will be in the 3 hour range but this will not be done until late tonight (in the 3am or so range).

 

If you have any other questions pertaining to how the new software works please feel free to post your questions in this thread and we will do the best we can to help you out!

 

Thanks

Ok some more information on the changes

 

-New rule set will be up and running within the next day or so. For the most part the old rules still apply. However you can and should discuss emulation and modding at your own liesure. Keep in mind that any piracy discussion is a no-no of course.

 

-The online gaming forum is no longer just for scheduling. It's for discussion of downloadable content, online gaming news and technology as well as the multiplayer aspects of any game released!

 

-In case you didn't notice we have added the new Deals and Bargains area here . You may use this area to post deals and bargains from across the internet. Not only for videogames but anything DVD/Hardware and Software related. Glen's weekly wrap up will be appearing in this area from now on as well.

Ok, quick reply can be turned on but were waiting to get a custom button up for it. It *WILL* be turned on though.

 

EDIT: Also for those that may not have noticed, you'll want to go into your user CP and select the "Edit Profile" option. You'll find sections to add a pic of yourself as well as a customer field to place your Xbox Live gamertag so it's viewable by anyone looking at your profile. :tu

Dont bother Bobbio. I just raised the limit to 12. :tu The software takes into accounts your sig and smilies so if that is still to few we may need to raise it further but we'll see how that setting works for now.

 

Good stuff so far guys. This is exactly the type of feedback we need to get things back to normal for good. Thanks!

Camp, as I understand it, there are no alternate skins. They're focussing on gettiing the forum software running correctly and then focus goes to developing the main site.

 

I think there might be alternate skins, but they can't make any promises.

 

Also, Attention to all non-Casablanca-based users: You might need to click on your "UserCP" link and then on "Edit Options" -- scroll down and you'll see the time ozne setting part.

Are the user selectable skins still in the works?

 

Eventually they will be Camp but it's a secondary focus. As Monkey said, we want to get everything running well right now as well as finish up the last bit of graphics work that needs to be done. From there it's time to concentrate heavily on the main site as we have admittedly been languishing in that department. I'm sure many are tired of hearing it's coming and for once we'd like to say...ITS HERE! :D
