New forums!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Welcome to the new and improved forums!

 

Besides looking a little less 2007, we can also benefit as a community from many features including but not limited to an improved calendar, clubs (I will explain this a little more further in on this post), a bona fide chatbox, more social network-style functionality and Steam-based authentication.

 

This marks the beginning of a concerted effort to overhaul our services on the anniversary of our opening - with more to come soon!

 

Whilst we don't plan to migrate the old forums over we understand that some of you will want to view the old forums and to transpose certain topics (biographies, training materials, etc) - you can find a read-only version of the old forums here: http://forums.starshiptroopersrp.net/old/.

 

Kind regards,

 

Xalphox

What are clubs?

 

Clubs are miniature communities-within-a-community that we plan to leverage to give faction leaders (such as the MI) the ability to create their own private areas outside of the regular forums to assemble their members, discuss topics, and schedule events.

 

There are four types of club: public, open, closed, and private. Public groups can be joined by anybody, open groups can be viewed and read by anybody but only members can post, users can apply to closed groups but otherwise they lack access, and private groups are totally hidden from the public and can only be joined via invitation.

 

As mentioned above, with groups, faction leaders can independently manage their members including making moderators and leaders, members can discuss topics in their own private club forum, and they can schedule events in their own private calendars.

 

You can view and apply to clubs like so:

I can't login to the old forums to get stuff from the admin forums.  Do I have to order posts to be transposed?

after getting use to the old forums it is weird to see it different, but I do like it.

But maybe make it so you don't see replies in clubs or in the latest posts on the right? I just want to see new threads not new replies. An alert is all we need to see updates on threads.

Updated the "New Topics" feed on the right side.

>> Will only list threads by most recent "Start Date" rather than "last updated" or "last posted".

 

Tl;dr:  New Topics now only shows New Topics, not New Posts.
