[Forum Maintenance] First Quarter November

Post#1 » Oct 30 2016 09:31

Hi All,

We'll be performing maintenance and an upgrade to the forum in the first part of November. The forum will likely be down for 2 - 4 days depending on how many issues arise during the handover from the old format to the new setup.

Just wanted to give you all heads up and not to worry should ATT be temporarily unavailable.

I'll post just ahead of time to let everyone know we're about to go offline.

Thanks! :D
- Tael.

So the big changeover is happening earlyish in November? Interesting...

Thanks for the heads-up. Will there be any channel we can go to for information if unforeseeable setbacks cause the process to take more than 4 days?

Just be careful with any updates. I still remember the 'technical issues' we had a couple of years ago in April. If this revamp brings in another horde of unpleasantness that rears its head in April next year, I swear to Aun....

Chuckle, I make no promises Kakapo42 ;)

Regardless I believe our esrtwhile Kor'O Pshar'Rifles will pilot us through the event without issue. We expect no issues, but a maintenance page will keep everyone up to date if you visit the site.

Cheers NoobPwner and Demorte, in further update - it will be Wednesday US time.

Have a good week on the forums; then see you all on the other side! :D

Good luck to all involved and I hope for a quick and smooth transition... For your sanity over my need for a place to rest my feet.

Roger that Darklighter. I'm sure the fio'vesa will reinstate your footstool at the exact measurements you requested in your personal cabin. ;)

I am scared! Where will I post my random updates on Tau! No where else do people love Tau this much! QQ

Wait! will we loose all of the threads and posts here?? Do I need to save my project thread content to move to a new platform?

I assume the admins have already done a database save before moving.

And the content of the database (so your content) will be reused and reformatted to fit the new website appearance. So no need to save your content (but you can if you really want).

As Kael'yn noted, standard approach is backup and transfer a mirror image which fits into the new framework like a change of clothes.

Is there a way for an user to change the black/blue design? It's a bit 'heavy' to my eyes...

Hi Vector,

I'll be adjusting it few % but at this stage the contrasted style is the only one available. I will be making a Classic Grey/Grey Blue style as soon as I can. :)

Thank you Demorte :)

Few more subtle tweaks, non-essentials, and we'll be golden, well.. Blue ;)

So will you guys be releasing additional themes for us to pick as we wish?

Themes based upon some of the major septs would be kinda cool.

Best answer I can give on Sept themes would be based on how long a "Classic ATT" conversion will take. This will give me an idea of the time investment required in selectable styles :)

Nice!

Another suggestion: some kind of like/exalt (from Dakka Dakka) for useful/informative posts!

Ah yah - good idea - we've been using our "Markerlight" system for so long it is The Way of Things on ATT. I'll look into a Mod for the community to pick up the torch also :)
