So the forums have made the switch to Simple Machines Forums, or SMF for short. The admin panel is a lot easier and nicer to deal with. As for things on the user end, we've lost a bit of functionality but that's nothing we, the staff, can't fix. The forums should not only run smoother too, but feel more stream lined and easier to access. We're still working out a few kinks and bugs from converting from phpBB3; if you find any, please report them to me ASAP.
On the subject of fixing functionality, since we're using SMF, themes and modifications are easier then ever to install. More over, we will need to install some to restore a little lost functionality, such as missing spoiler tags, which were very popular. I will work on that first and foremost, but the rest will be up to you guys to vote for and suggest, and you can use this thread to do it. Just go to the SMF customization website
, copy down the URL to mods and themes you would like to see installed and I will get right to it. Do note that the current software version is 2.0.2
and we can only support mods and themes that support that exact version number or a number in that range. (Such as 2.0.x)
On another note, if you still need to access something from the original phpBB3 forums, you can find them here
. I will be taking down the phpBB3 forums after a few months and all of it's content will be deleted; if you need something from there that wasn't carried over into the conversion to here, then please retrieve it now. In any case, I still have an SQL database back up of it on my hard drive safe and sound in case something from it absolutely needs to be pulled from it.
Thanks for sticking with us so far up until now. Hopefully with the advent of Stomp Arena, 72 can pick back up and be brought back to it's former glory.
