    According to this thread, just a little earlier, just after Ravers donated enough money to buy a chatbox addon..

    Coach,
    you might want to put a link on the old form page to the new forums, or just do a redirect from the old address to the new one. I had the old forum address bookmarked, when I went to the old forum, I just saw the message about the forum going down again so I thought it was just extended downtime. There might be more people confused by this, so it might be a good idea to make sure people that hit that page know where to find the new one.

    Am I the only one where the bookmark hasn't mattered?

    I have "http://bbtactics.com/forums/" not changed before or after the downtime, and the same bookmark takes me to this forum?

    Grr, getting the redirects to work has been the biggest pain of everything.

    At first I could only get the homepage to redirect, but this meant that the links to threads weren't redirecting properly.

    Having now with some help got the old threads to redirect properly to the new addresses, it would appear that the index redirect has borked. The original redirect is still there, I'll have to play around and see if I can get them both working at the same time... Thanks for letting me know!

    Think I solved the redirection problems.

    Just went to install the chatbox and it won't install. I've sent a message to the author but I've got a feeling it might be a hosting issue. Depending on when I hear back from the various people this might mean I need to talk to will affect how soon I can get it implemented.

    The redirect for the forum is working for me now! That should definitely cut down on the confusion.

    Looks like the chatbox is now working, let me know if you can't see it, post to it etc as I may need to alter the usergroup permissions again.

    Managed to spare some time to add some of the custom trophies back in. However this new system won't let me assign a trophy more than once to the same user and I can't at this time change the display order of them which is a little bit annoying.

    If you think you are missing one, or spot someone who is, then please let me know!

    Once you figure out how to give more than 1 trophy, then let me have another Golden spoon and a second CC runners up

    Thanks for getting the Dice symbols back!

    How is the "Members online" section ordered? It used to be alphabetically, I think, but now just random?

    I believe it is in the order of the most recently active.

    Ah, thank you, that makes sense. Not very helpful for finding someone, but at least it explaines the strange order.

    Well, we are not that many usually, so no big deal.

    I've probably missed it, but is there a hide or minimise button for the chatbox? I never use it and it hogs the screen. I used to have it set to minimise on the old forum, as I did with some of the sub-forums.

    Not by default it seems (I could have sworn it did), I'll look into adding that Sunday / Monday.

    Is there any way to make sure that Email alerts are activated?

    Especially nice to have if you start a personal conversation.

    Should be in the top right at the top of the page, Cloud. If you click on Alerts, there is an option there which says "Alert Preferences". Clicking it will take you to the options to edit them. :D
