Re: [PLOG] Daeron's Blues

The clean up also reveals box upon box of loose bits and half-made models. This is but one of them, and the picture doesn't even show the mess at the bottom. There is no curse in Elvish, Entish or the tongues of Men for this mess. 20210915_102700.jpg I find the clean-up unexpectedly invigorating. It...

Re: [40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

I ended up settling for a softer white. The bright white was wrestling for attention, and the bright yellow as well. I tried softer versions of both, and in the end I found the white more pleasing (even though the more tan-yellow was nice!) 20210914_173750.jpg meanwhile I started experimenting with ...

Re: [40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

I'm stuck deciding on a colour for the bands. None of the choices really seem to click and I keep coming back to it. The 3rd from the left was the original attempt - It's the official theme. I don't like the yellow though. It looks too industrial and bee-like. The 2nd from the left was an attempt to...

Yes, they get square bases to play 8th or the new old world when it releases. 20210913_085811.jpg The first step before beginning a big project is making room.

[40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

While I'm building my old dark elves, I'll also be painting my thousand sons for Warhammer 40k. This is the army I'm going to play in the coming weeks.
I have yet to complete my first unit, but here's a preview of what's coming!

Re: [PLOG] Daeron's Blues

It's been a while. Although I won't be painting them up quickly, I thought I'd share my wall of shame. I got into an irresistible urge to build the remaining models. I will paint them some day too! But for now, behold the stash!

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

I would appreciate the help :) But... I would recommend to wait a bit longer before putting in a lot of effort in the style. People are considering a migration to another platform. I have not upgraded to the latest version of phpBB yet, but only to the last version which still supports a migration t...

Re: Summer Clean-Up

Everything has been cleansed, except for the users. I will check on that action later since I don't feel like doing it one at a time as the ACP offers. Additionally, I'd like to clean up the administration of the websites. Our hosting plan has a long history, and this has given us plenty of accounts...

Another technical change has been completed, where we upgrade the version of PHP itself. Everything seems to be working, but should you encounter an issue, please report it and I'll look into it asap.

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

Thanks for the report. That should be fixed now.

I will try to customize the style in the coming days. I think a slightly more neutral background, a pink highlight and our logos should get us going :)

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

Yeah. The style is lost. This seems to be the best replacement. I will be adding logos and customisation in the coming days.
My hope is that, by working on this style, future compatibility will improve

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

I'll postpone the migration to the start of next week.
My wife's taking me on a weekend :D I would hate to rush the migration to get it done in time and then disappear, leaving you all without support for 3 days.

Re: Forum Resurrection Advice

For me, it's all about cost and what it takes to make it work :D
Other than that it's all good by me. So far, I have only found services considerably more expensive than we have now. I am looking into AWS Lightsail, which seems to be relatively cheap, but might also prove technically more challenging.

Summer Clean-Up

Greetings, While working on the webserver, I noticed our footprint was quite big. I was wondering if we could clean up some of the following: ⋅  The 9th Age codexes from version 0.9. We hosted these when T9A was launched to help them overcome the bandwidth. But I don't think these are stil...

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

I redid the migration, this time to phpBB 3.2, so that a potential migration to Discourse remains supported. EDIT: While this should allow us to upgrade the PHP Version .. I just learned that it supports only up to php 7.2, and we need at least php 7.3 to get rid of the additional support expense. I...

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

On ulthuan.net, I've been informed that a migration for phpBB 3.3 to Discourse is not supported, but a migration from phpBB 3.2 to Discourse is. If preferred I can upgrade to phpBB 3.2 instead of 3.3, which should be sufficient to remove the support cost. That way we remove the cost (and urgency) an...

Re: Forum Resurrection Advice

If you don't mind me asking, do you use an online host or do you provide your own webserver? For our case, we would have to change hosting plans - that much is certain. It's not clear whether we can run both systems without doubling the cost. The new plan would have a limit on disk space so it might...

Re: Forum Resurrection Advice

Well.... We'll be forced to change forum system sooner or later. We're already paying a monthly premium to keep this one working, because we're using a very old version of PHP. At some point, even that option will disappear. It was on my list of things to do... But it would require a migration for D...
