This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Worst update ever.
« on: October 07, 2020, 12:19:07 AM »
Sick of these software 'upgrades' which remove features and make usability more difficult. Might as well just start a subreddit and save the effort at this point.

What the hell motivated these changes?

How about the other software was no longer going to be compatible with our server and this was the best option.

Couldn't agree more this so called update sucks. Near impossible to add an image to a post and the emailed summary notification doesn't embed new posts.  Was this this downgrade done to drive more traffic to the site is it just crap.

Didn't they told you guys that the admins HAD to update in order to just exist.  Like they have no choice at all because the old forum is not compatible to the new changes.  They didn't do this to piss you off.  Sometimes life tosses you lemons.
