The forum is under a new webhost now, due to the old one having it's days routinely numbered. The forum is now accessed via http://72dpiarmy.supersanctuary.net/
If I can contact Two52, then I will try to work with him to get the entire Super Mario War project carried over here as well. This includes a new website, new hosting, everything. Maybe this will give the game a much needed boost to embark on it's glorious journey to 1.8 final.
I know I will never be as great a man as Florian was, but I can at least hope to continue on some parts of his legend, these forums being one of them.
Looking on the bright side, this means we have much greater control over the forums now. I took the liberty to update phpBB to 3.0.6, and the admins will notice some changes right away in the admin panel. This also means anyone is free to suggest any mods to install into the forum and the staff can discuss on whether or not it's worth doing so. If so, I'll happily take the time to install it and [s:24kf6gzp]hopelessly break the forum forever in doing so[/s:24kf6gzp] implement it with complete perfection.
As a note though, there might still be some losses here and there. The backup is very recent, but certain staff members who decided to post after I locked the forum down (myself included) will find a few posts missing. No big loss here. The biggest loss is probably the avatars. I was unable to grab all of them and thought it'd be simpler if everyone simply reuploaded. A few of the smilies are gone too, although I caught most of the custom ones. The rank images all survived the move. There might still be bugs here and there, however, so do report any brokenness here.
That said, welcome to your new home, boards, and welcome to your old home, members.
