Subject: Planned Maintainence
Date: 28th Dec 2015
**********************************************
Morning Campers!

Please be aware that the forum will be down for roughly two hours on 27th December 2015. The Plan is to start this anytime from 8am to 10am GMT time (But could possibly later). This is so it effects as little users as possible.

During this time a full backup will be done and some of the extensions we currently use will be updated to their latest versions.

There are also going to be one or two new extensions added to this. Posting Templates (Which will be usefull for character pages)

The Changelog will follow this post once the update is done.

PHPBB 3.1.7 - PL1 - The Bertie Awakens
This is a maintenance and security release. Why PL1? this is because a bug was found before 3.1.7 was released.

PHPBB 3.1.7 - PL1 - The Bertie Awakens, and actually gets out of bed!
An update to one extension and a load of information on the site.

  1. Board rules ext updated to V1.03
  2. Character Creation pages are now complete, fixing bugs with links breaking after the page extension was updated. A submitting & Character Pages section have been completed.
  3. The Master Portraits links have been added to quick links within Character Pages
  4. The Players Handbook has now been added.
  5. The Players Support Center is now live! (See Players Handbook)
  6. Pages now have custom icons in the quick links menu.

The Players Support Centre
With the site getting into a position to start recruiting it is going to mean more players and eventually some venues may have more than one Storyteller. The PSC is designed to centralize all character requests like xp etc. See the Players Handbook for more info.

Please note the players support center at this time uses a separate login and you will need to sign up to be able to use it.

PHPBB 3.1.8 Bertie's late Valentine's present
  • Core Bug Fixes
  • New Template Locations added.
  • New Permissions class added: Only Moderators & the Topic Poster can view a topic.

Closure of the Player Support Centre
- The New Permissions class was an extension I have been waiting on for ages! Right after I find an alternative it comes out. So with that said at some point the PSC Will close and you will see a new forum appear in each venue. Not 100% sure what I will call this, probably Character Admin. It is a bit of a way off, I am working on a few things at the moment to streamline the site along with putting all the information onto a set of HTML pages. For the time being we will use the player support centre until we are ready to move over.

- OWOD games are coming, Vampire, Mage & Werewolf. They will not use the character sheets database they will use Post based sheets.

Menu Changed
  1. OWOD Toolkit Hidden - Until OWOD Games launch
  2. Werewolf Hidden from NWOD Toolkit - Until we have a wolf game
  3. ST Discussion and XP Spend Request Forms Created and Launched.
  4. Owod Dice Roller Up

Forms
Hi everyone, on the menu bar above you should see NWOD Toolkit. At the top you see character sheets. Below that is a section for each venue will I am developing and creating as time goes on.

As of today the first two forms have launched! You will see a forms section under each venue! You should see XP Spend Request and ST Discussion.

This system replaces the Player Support System. It enables everything to be saved on the forum and avoids people having to sign up twice.

XP Spend Request
Fill in this form to request to spend XP. A storyteller will either approve the sheet, deny the sheet or approve it. Please note that you will NOT see your form in the venues Admin section until it is approved by an ST. If your form is denied you will see a message in your notifications as to why. We are unable to recover rejected requests at this time (Although at a later date it may be possible)

ST Discussion
Want to discuss something with the storytellers about your character? Simply post it here! Please note that you will NOT see your form in the venues Admin section until it is approved by an ST. ST Discussions are not rejected, they simply fall into the ST Queue. If you request a specific storyteller please note the ST dealing with the queue that day will approve it and leave it in the admin section for your chosen st to reply.

All Forms
Please note that you will NOT see your form in the venues Admin section until it is approved by an ST.

Final Note You may not be able to see all sheets straight away. These should fully update with 24 hours. If you can not see the changes please press ctrl + f5 (I.E, Edge, Firefox & Chrome) to force your browser to do a full update of the page as it may be pulling from your cache.
