Forums Transferred and Updated

Important forum wide news and notices.

Postby Witness on Tue Dec 25, 2007 5:51 am

Hey folks,

Over this holiday season, I picked up the long-forgotten maintenance project of transferring the forum data from the old server to this new one. After going through a series of hack attempts and pr0n spambotting, the forums seemed to also need a software security upgrade. It's now running on the newly released phpbb3, but hopefully you'll find the layout and controls to be very similar to what you had before. Guest posting, which was an interesting but failed experiment of convenience, has been disabled due to all the spamming, but user registration has been reenabled. I had to do a significant amount of poking and prodding to convert the data from Invision Power Board to PhpBB, so not everything is perfect (for example, some of the usernames that use a significant amount of special characters got mangled in the conversion, but if you spot forum issues you need fixed, let me know via PM.

I am trying to restore more of the attachments and image uploads from the forums, but feel free to edit back in your missing uploads and images if you want. I don't forsee any more upload pruning in the near future. Hopefully, SN forums can remain as a piece of Dungeon Siege history, showcasing the amazing community of players and mod developers this game brought together.

Happy Holidays,

A most excellent X-Mas gift. Thank you very much for bringing back an old and dear friend: the SN forums. ^_^
"The only sovereign I can allow to rule me is reason. The first law of reason is this: what exists, exists; what is, is. From this irreducible, bedrock principle, all knowledge is built. This is the foundation from which life is embraced.
Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way of grasping reality - it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see."

The lords have returned to their long abandoned kingdom. This beats all of my holiday presents!
