Dear all, the forum has been updated to it's newest version. Hopefully nothing broke while doing that. Everything should be the same, though note that the ULR has changed to:
https://forums.xwaupgrade.com/
Old links will still work, though in case you have the forum bookmarked directly please change it to the new link.
Other than that things should behave just like before. (You might have had to login again) There are no notable new features other than that it is now possible to tag users @Vince T This will only when you make a new post, not when editing posts! The board will provide you with a userlist as soon as you type the @ Symbol and the first letter of the user you want to tag.
If you do not wish to be notified when someone tags you you can do so in the UCP under Board Preferences --> Edit notification options
There it is the last option: Someone mentioned me

That's it, please let me know if you run into any issues!

Thanks for the effort! When a corporate as Asmodee announce that it will drop its forums community (loosing lots of star wars stuff) it is a pleasure when an indipendent project still keep up doing the right things!

Quick question, though forgive me as it's slightly off topic as its more general to the site itself. Is there an RSS feature included with the software i can use with the news articles?

I just noticed that I can't view images in the forum if I'm not logged in. Is that normal? Was it always like that?

Currently no, phpBB does not support that natively and I am not sure if there is an easy way to add the feature to the forum.
