Well it appears the forums software we're currently using (phpBB2) isn't compatible with the newest technologies that my server is running :(

But.. I just did a test conversion to the newest version of phpBB3 and it appears to have worked flawlessly (nothing appears to have been lost or corrupted, that includes topics/posts & user passwords).

So we will be getting an upgrade to the forums once everything is moved over.

BTW neons.org runs phpBB3, so its not a HUGE change.

Rice_Eater, what you asked for was petty things and the answer to those things was no.

Those that have been banned will have the chance to reclaim their original accounts.

In order to do so I ask that you write a 100 word essay (must be at least 100 words and not gibberish) on the topic of what you think you did wrong (to get banned) and how you plan to correct it in the future. And email it to me at (I will update this with an email address soon)
And please understand these essays may be posted at my discretion.

This may seem silly to some, but if you truly want to come back this is what you must do.

Now before Rice_Eater asks to be an admin, a similar process to the unbanning of accounts will be used. An essay (undetermined word count) on why you want to be an admin and why you would be good at it. And again these essays may be posted at my discretion.

When the new forums go live there are some new features that will be available, such as the Warning system (similar to DNO's Strike system but built in) if you get enough warnings your account may be suspended (temporary ban) or permanently banned.

Keep in mind somethings might change and some might stay exactly as they are now. Some admins have asked to step down and some haven't. But we're not gonna let everything go to hell now that different parties are in control.

wow didnt even ask yet lol. only things i want to change was give a few people there names back including myself, get ride of a few people and make a post that u can talk about polatics but if it was a start turing into a fight that post would be locked. honestly dawm i would have ask that u do that hard work like take care of the site setup. i havent done it in a long time so i forgot most of it. i agree for dawm taking over his always been a good admin. he at least sends a pm saying "hey stop acting a fool or ill have to ban u" but in a nice way.

Josh,

Just a few suggestions to keep the peace a bit better

Seperate the admins into moderators and keep yourself as the only "admin"

Put moderators in respective sections(For sale, Off topic,etc...)

I am just suggesting these things you dont have to do them at all , all though its worked on the other local sites.
