    I finished installing the Testbed version of the Cactar.

    This is a test forum only, content will not be automatically transferred to the new site when it launches. Instead use it to remake threads into a XenForo friendly format.

    You'll find that not only is it easier to make posts, but you can center text and change font size, its so much easier and you won't be able to believe that we stuck with phpbb for so long!

    Also, you can post YouTube links and it'll just work (No need for bracket stuff anymore). Please update your posts and check out the power of XenForo.

    Changes to the Forum setup:

    • 1. The Gear Store has been removed, replaced by News and Media!

    • 2. News and Media has been introduced. Last Word produces a lot of external material, so this is the forum were all of that will go.

    • 3. Raider is now a distinct rank from Member. Member is a rank that gives access to Availability and Guild Discussion only. Raider, on the other hand gives access to private applications, availbility, Guild discussion, and strategy. You cannot be both a Member and Raider at the same time (See next note)

    • 4. (Administrative) Member ranks have been changed. Instead, each member will exist in one normal rank at a time. For example, Officers will only be in the Officer group. Raiders will only be in the Raider group. This is just an organizational change. Applicable members may have multiple special ranks. Special ranks are Producer, Administrator, Moderator, Design, etc

    Re: The Testbed

    Quick question. Are the forums going to remain that pastel orange/blue colour, or are you planning to make it look more like the current forums (customized to LW, neutral greys, etc)?

    The forums will be completely redone in Modern Deco and harmonize with the frontpage (and the rest of the site). The placement of the boxes will remain similar to how you see it now even after it is reskinned. You should know I wouldn't allow such an inconsistently to slide!

    It's all a play on Cactuar, there are many similarities. I don't want to do a carbon copy of Cactuar though.

    lol funny you post that, did you see the other concepts of the Cactar in the Apply thread?

    The Cactar has something of a social history with the guild whereas the other two you pointed would be random.

    Additionally, Cactar is a play on Cactuar which is pretty cool too.
