We Are Back!

Well, hello, hello, hello! We missed you! 

 

Welcome to our brand new board! There are a lot of exciting things to see, and we hope that you enjoy poking around and having a look at some of the new features everywhere! 

 

Before we get started though, I have a quick message. What you see around you would not be possible without many, many hours of work put in by both staff and member volunteers. We owe a great deal of thanks to: 

 

  • ForgottenFace at TDA, who not only moved all of our database from the old board over here, but also helped move us to updated software, and is hosting us! We would not be here without her!
  • Hermes Blackwood, who created this fabulous new default skin for us! 
  • Abraham Neil-Malone, who created our new favicon (the little icon that pops up on your tabs and bookmark bar) and our sharer logo (the thumbnail that pops up whenever you share a PW link anywhere). 
  • Wilder Mackinnon, who created our winter holiday theme, available for viewing for the week because it's just too beautiful to keep stored away til winter. 
  • Nicholas James, who created our simple skin! 
  • All PW staff, who spent insane amounts of time uploading, trying out new codes, learning the new software, replacing lost badges, post counts (did you know if you made a list of every member on board with their post count and badge info, it would take 18 pages single spaced? No? Neither did I.), and updating ToS/handbooks everywhere. 

 

If you see any of these people around, please give them some thanks! Without them, we would not have a board! 

 

Please check out the updated rules and handbook to learn the ropes, and then if you have more questions about new features, check out this forum to learn more and to ask your fellow members for help! There are some things that are still under construction, so please bear with us these next few weeks as we settle into a new space! 

 

As one more note, this term will be extended to accommodate the time lost during shutdown. However, this is a FREEBIE TERM for all areas! This includes all job areas, Death Eaters, and Order members. Students will be promoted regardless of post count provided that they have logged in at some point this term. 

 

And now, welcome home!

Piggybacking on this to inform everyone that the spam date has been temporarily increased to two months to accommodate to the lost time. So any threads from the 17th of September to today are able to be replied to, that date changing with each day passing (you know... how the spam date normally works!). This will only count for threads posted in before the board change - once the old posts expire, we'll be going back to the usual one month spam date.

And continuing on the wave of announcements, some more! 

 

Staff are aware of the problem with the board sending out emails. At the moment, NO emails are being sent from the board, including the forgot password link, the contact us link, and it seems even email subscriptions. We're still working on how to fix this. 

 

It looks as if there are some member settings that need readjusting too, so some of your settings may change over the next couple of days as we work with a much larger pool of data (we didn't have so many members to test on and give us feedback when we were offline!) than we had before. 

 

We hope you enjoy the new site! :D

And our new default skin is live! Thanks to Hermes Blackwood for her hard work! The winter skin will continue to be an option up through the holidays, because we want to be sure to show off everyone's hard work (and so you guys get to choose for a bit!). Enjoy! <3

You asked about being able to alternate skins, and lucky you, we have some talented members on board! Thanks to Wilder Mackinnon for making a year round alternate skin called PW Purple! 

 

For those of you who prefer desktop view on your mobile devices, and who are unable to turn on desktop version of the website on your device, there is now a desktop version of all available skins as well! 

 

For those who are using Winter Skin, it will be retired (until the next holiday season!) on January 2nd.
