FORUMS MOVING - FINAL DETAILS

Lay back, relax, and talk about any topic that takes your fancy. Heavy stuff, however, should be posted in IS THIS THE WORLD WE CREATED.

FORUMS MOVING - FINAL DETAILS

Postby Ian-Highlander » Tue Apr 13, 2010 6:02 pm

The new QOL forums are finally ready and testing is complete.

For anyone who's not seen previous announcements. The QOL Forums are being re-located to Outsideline's servers which means we get control of them back again amongst other benefits and as a result have been able to make a lot of improvements to them as well as create several templates.

The new forums are completely blank, a fresh start and all users will have to re-sign up their accounts as explained in previous messages.

As well as giving us full control of the forums again, this means the new forums are finally back where they belong on the queenonline.com domain name as well.

Any users who feel their usernames may be at risk and wish to reserve their usernames on the new site should PM me the username and a valid email address they want to use for the account and your accounts will be set up for you. Please note, I'd much prefer it if people only did this if they're worried someone else might attempt to take their username. I really don't want to have to manually set up hundreds of user accounts and if it gets too many, I may just drop the idea completely and let you all fight for it.

Anyway the important bit that everyone's been waiting for...

The new forums address will be http://www.queenonline.com/forum and will open for business on Thursday 15th April (yes this Thursday) at 11am (BST).

Be there or be ummm, well... not there. :P :lol:

IMPORTANT NOTE: These forums will all be locked and set to read only once the new boards go live.

I've tried a couple of times to send out mass emails to let everyone know and it appears EMI's mail server that this server is attached to doesn't allow that many emails to be sent. G will be sending notifications out to the normal Queen mailing list and making an announcement on the website and re-pointing the link from the website to the new forum, but to try and ensure this message gets round as many people as possible, please pass this on to anyone and everyone you know that uses these forums.

Edit: looks like I've finally managed to get the mass email to send at least to some people although it still may not have gone to everyone.

I was going to google how to turn BST into GMT before realising they were the same thing.

God damnit.

Whatever, I'm not a timeologist. As far as I'm concerned, it's just "the time".

This board will be locked as read only for the forums and the ability to send PMs will be removed, but yes you should still be able to log on and view old PMs.

We're still unsure what the situation is regarding long term with this board and EMI hosting it, but Outsideline are currently negotiating that with EMI.

Ok, good, at least we can still post once in a while and send PM's here and there once the board is set to read only.
