Upgrade to phpBB3: Welcome to new forum!

Post by Veikko » 11 Nov 2011, 11:34

Hello all,

As of November 2011, the old forum at http://veikko.climax.dk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; has been closed for good (R.I.P. 2005-2011). The forum you're currently browsing is conveniently located at Veikko's Blur Page's own web space at http://www.vblurpage.com/forum" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Please update your bookmarks and links.

If you're a member from the previous forum, I hate to say that you must register again for this board. After registering, please make yourself familiar with the forum environment (phpBB3). Some of the fresh features include:

- Attachments - Forget ImageShack or similar service, you can now upload your pictures directly to your messages. Every message can have up to 5 pictures attached to it, with the maximum size of 100kb per image (edit: updated to 400kb in 2015).
- Subscriptions - Follow your favourite topics. When your subscribed topic gets a new message, you'll get a notice in your e-mail.
- Drafts - Save your messages for later editing/posting.
- New Blur Avatars - Choose your favourite from the gallery (User Control Panel -> Profile -> Edit avatar).

I think that's all. If you have any problems using the board, please don't hesitate a moment to contact me.

Cheers
Veikko

I hadn't been here for a while...so busy! Glad to be back and loving the new look..well done!

The book is nearly done, then I'll just need to edit and format properly. Still trying to decide whether to pursue a proper publisher (holy alliteration!) or self-publish again. I do have interest from a couple who at least may want to look at it...

Ah thanks, but the design wasn't done by me, I just tweaked the colours a bit to match with the main site. I'm personally looking forward to phpBB4 since this format (phpBB3) is from 2006 and already showing its age. The layout could be more 'airy' in my opinion.

Welcome! About the official forum, it isn't under construction, only the official website is being restructured.

The website is where the forum link should be, so it's not a shame at all! ;)
