Guys and Grils,

The Forums have been rearranged today, reducing the amount of boards and increasing the amount of things that go into our old General Discussion board, now labelled Open Discussion. While we have a focus on Midnight I think we might let anyone seeking to discuss RPG subjects to do that in the same forum, given how Midnight has been ported to more than one system, this seems fitting.

In short the Play by post, Story Hour and Shadow Pits forums have been merged into the Games and Stories forum, where you can post fiction, make a PbP or seek players for a game somewhere else or just post campaign logs, for those interested to read, the old Off Topic forum is now a forum for discussions around non RPG subjects, like movies (though not the Midnight or another RPG spin off) as well as video games and real life stuff, the Dawnforge and Grimm guest forums, as well as the House Rules and Conversion forums were integrated into the new Open Discussion Forum and the News forum is now standing at the top of the list, to better highlight its content.

This is by no means definitive and static though, and I am willing to hear what you guys have to say about it, so comment to your heart's content. Those seeking a given conversion should make a search on the system (example: True20, C&C or Unisystem), and any dawnforge or grimm topic has gained a tag as well.

In the future use tags for rpgs other than Midnight and systems other than the Midnight version of the D20 system, which are the main stream of the site, examples follow: [Ptolus], [Unisystem], [C&C], [True20], [Dawnforge], [Grimm], [GURPS], [D&D], [Ars magica], [TRoS] (The Riddle of Steel) and so on. this will make searches quickly find related threads.

Next changes will be made on the site sections, where organization will be changed to make access easier and finding content faster. If you have any suggestions on this regard, let me know!

If there could be a filter system such that you could only look at threads with a [XXX] tag, that might be really useful with this new organizational system...

You can make a search for the tag, this will give you the results at the top, other than that ordering threads by subject will giv you a similar result. Not a filter system, but may do the work in any case.

We are not putting hardcore porn on AtS!

This is more disturbingly true than any of you ever want to know.

I have just a few words as an example: Finding Nemo Slash Fiction.

No, you don't have to thank me.

On topic though, I had a quick question! The streamlining looks great. If I am looking for old threads, though, will I find them in their assumed merger places? Such as the old (few) threads from the one-time Grimm forum?

I am soon to be getting my gaming groove back on. I'm excited. ...and of course, we all see where I came 'home' to, hm?  ...I really have to find a signature to feel complete.  Somehow I suspect my um... spankings one is probably outdated (if I can find it at all).

A little piece of my soul just died.

Then it fell into the pool and contaminated the water, causing a much larger piece to follow suit.

If you mean threads from the old version of AtS, they're pretty much gone into the aether. If there were Grimm threads on these boards, then it looks like they were folded into News and Open.

Welcome back to us lilith!

This is actually a second site, as the old one suffered a horrible death at Code Monkey's server, as the server itself died out,a nd we did not find a way to make it available again yet, if we ever will. So anything the site had before it looked like it does now is mostly gone, a few things or better, quite a few things are still around, but odds are your old printed notes will have things we don't have around any more.

The Grimm threads we did have are all folded into Open and have a [Grimm] tag to them, the site never actually got real traffic for either dawnforge or grimm, so I eventually folded those two into a larger general forum, labelled open discussion. Wink

Ahh, I feel stronger already.

It's a shame what happened to the old site... but things are looking good here. Now to just find that cattle prod...

It's good to be back.

We were actually lucky that when it died we had already started this one place, else we could have stayed without none. It was almost as if Todd felt there was a problem coming.

Lilith,

If i remember correctly, there was only one thread in the Grimm forum and that was a link to a grim campaign a friend of mine was running (which i did not play due to me traveling).

Not right now, I believe I have it turned off, I want to add it and a few changes to the site as a whole when we are safe and sound on the new server. Wink
