New forum is very new...

Teddy does not trust this automatically.
I trust this Yumemei way more than Miho, of course, but this is suspiciously new...

Looks very good so far. Many thanks to all involved who put such hard work into the migration.

My avatar seems to have migrated correctly, and reconstructing my sig should be easy once all the links on archive.forums.megatokyo.com have been redone.

Thanks again!

EDIT: Or I could just fix my sig myself ;)

W00t! I'm going to have to fix my sig as well of course, once the links are fixed back to the Archive.

Speaking of which is there any reason the Archive isn't going to be named The Necr0wombicon? I mean it seems like the most obvious name to me: a massive repository of dark and dangerous knowledge, that can summon spirits of the past (and Miho if you're "lucky")

:)

Oh, yeah, I wrote Ping some backstory once.

New forum smell is the smell of coders. Time to start giving the smell of forumites.
SD seems to no longer need the tinfoil hat that it had made from merciless hammering on Occam's Razor. This is a strange state of affairs. I do hope that it finds the need for it again someday.

Looks good. Feels good. The view seems 'closer', and a bit more chibi?

Much strangeness. Every link on the archived forums leads back here. And I can't see strip [1480].

New forums are very nice... And thankfully not Largo nice... :lol: In fact with the Boo logo at the top, I would wager that posting here is a post in good conscience...

The server address has been changed but the links on all its pages haven't been changed yet. In the meantime you need to copy a given link, paste it in a new browser tab or window, and then manually change "forums.megatokyo.com" to "archive.forums.megatokyo.com" (and in some cases change the "https://" back to "http://"). That won't help with things like the "Log In" button (javascript?) that don't generate copyable links, so for now we can't actually log into the archived forums, but most of it should at least be readable.
And I can't see strip [1480].
It's still on Patreon and hasn't been posted at the main site yet. Should be up tomorrow. :D

The issues with the old forum now appear to be fixed. The links work, and it's locked down so people can't add new posts. Many thanks to klange for figuring that all out.

If Darkmorford would rig it so it will open up in a new tab, it would be perfect. :idea: Not trying to bitch, just suggesting a tweak. I appreciate everyone's efforts here; you've kept a lot of features of the old site, in a sweet looking new package.
That's not quite as simple, but he's going to look into it. Thanks for the suggestions.
Okay, I think I got it. Both the logo image and the "MegaTokyo" breadcrumb link should open the main page in a new tab (or a new window, if that's how your browser is set up).
Thanks! Saves a lot of "back and forth"...... ;)

Is it possible to do stuff like embed videos or tweets?

This should be fixed, though it looks like it's using the default blue skin instead of the Megatokyo grays. Gonna need to look into that.

Sort of, and no, at least for the time being. phpBB doesn't support this natively, and I'm not familiar enough with how it works to hook in a JavaScript API like Twitter's oEmbed. Videos will have to be on a site-by-site basis; it looks like it'll be easy enough to add a BBCode tag that works with youtu.be style links, but I haven't done the research into any other sites at this time.

Good job.
I had lost the use of my old account on the forums and became a lurker (reading the comic since ~100 or so).
Nice to be back.
