The site will be undergoing some changes.
First and foremost, the forum will be updated to a newer version. I have delayed this upgrade for as long as I could because it might break the style of the forum. Unfortunately, the platform is becoming so old we're being charged extra by the host to keep the legacy server running.
The upgrade will go as follows:
- In the coming week, I'll be testing the migration on a local copy and get all the kinks out of the upgrade procedure.
- When the tests have been completed, a demo of the new version will be made avaialble on http://test.druchii.net for validation. You will be requested to check out the test forum and provide feedback, if possible.
- After validation, a date will be set to take the forum offline, perform the upgrade and bring us back on the new forum. The forum shouldn't be offline for more than a few hours at most.
After Druchiinet has successfully migrated, a similar migration will be scheduled for Ulthuan.net.
Secondly, the Dnet Tools will be undergoing a rebrand as part of a new project. When I moved the calculators to Druchii.net I had hoped that it would strengthen Druchii.net's brand within the WFB community. It enjoyed some initial success but I don't feel the two sites have been contributing to each other for a while. My hope is that a new brand, as a stand-alone site, will have an easier time reaching out to new communities and become a "known" site. The project will improve the Combat Calculators to support complex rules, allow users to make up their own rules and provide a calculator for Warhammer 40K. More information on the project will follow. The launch date is (currently) set to 1st of August.
The Dnet Tools will not be removed. I'll keep the site running to support all the hotlinked images and charts that people have made in the past.
