So I'm sure you've all read the previous announcement thread about Oatmeal. Here's stage 2.
Soon, we'll be moving the website over there too, as well as upgrading from our current forum version, 3.1.4, to the latest version of the forum software, 3.4.5. It has a lot of neat additions that will make browsing threads a lot more fun and efficient.
However, as it's such a massive jump, there are a few minor changes that are going to happen during the upgrade process that you all should know about before the upgrade.
- We will no longer have both an avatar and a profile picture. Everyone will need to make sure the picture they like the most is set to their avatar.
- The forums will work slightly differently, and there will be an adjustment period. I'll make sure we have a thread up in feedback for everyone to post their findings.
- All of our banners will need to be adjusted to have a soft left edge in addition to the soft right edge. If you've made any banners and want them to continue to be used, I'm talking to you guys.
- A few of our settings will also need to be adjusted for some time after the upgrade, please bear with us as we get everything working nicely.
Overall I feel this will be a change for the best, and I'm really looking forward to improving our community with this change. Go ahead and post any questions or concerns you guys might have here, and I'll do my best to answer them.
