Re: Forum News Thread

From the Modicone

As a follow up, the 'Everything Else' forum has now been set to auto-prune. Anything inactive for over a year will be automatically deleted. (Except for announcements and stickies.)

This will hopefully be the only forum that needs to be set to auto-prune.

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

The pruning was required in order to restore the forums. There was no other way to get it back up to running in a reasonable amount of time. The reason the old topics are still present is because I did a quick query to remove posts and didn't remove the topic. The good news is that I did take a data...

Re: Forum News Thread

From the Modicone

Due to hosting issues, I have had to trim the forum down. All posts older than 5 years have been removed, as well as several game threads.
We will also be looking to institute post pruning and/or a server move in the future, to avoid further downtime.

Re: Heaven's Vault

It's not just a cipher but it is made to be accessible to your average person. As a linguistically aware person, you'll pick up on some key aspects quite quickly.

I enjoyed the translations even though they weren't grammatically complex. I liked how context was a key feature to understanding.

Heaven's Vault

Has anyone else played Heaven's Vault?

I've finished it a couple of times now and really enjoyed it.
Deciphering the language is interesting, without being overly complicated. I've not had time to try understanding the spoken version though.

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

As the person who was primarily in charge of the special ranks, I also enjoyed them a lot, but they took a while to review and award. (That is part of what made them special.) Getting a special rank meant that I had thoroughly read and responded to your conlang. At that time I had much more free tim...

Re: Forum News Thread

From Modicone The forums should be working again now. The problems were caused by the hosting provider changing php versions without notifying us. So to get the forum working again I have had to update the phpbb version again which is why the theme has changed. However, as it is a very recent versi...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

The forum was updated from a very old version of phpbb to the latest version.

Because the old version was so old, the theme was no longer compatible with the new version.

Re: Forum News Thread

The forum will be updated this weekend. As such there will be a short period of downtime.
Please remain calm or I will have to smite you.

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

Send me a PM with the stuff. (If not I'll forget.) Also keep in mind I have a slight backlog to work through. What rank, for who, relevant thread. Does anybody still give out ranks here? I sent my nomination via PM over a year ago and nothing happened... Not that I'm aware of. Sorry, when I started...

I believe Ossicone is the main mod to contact about assigning ranks.
This is correct.
I'm happy to accept pm's for rank requests. Just be aware it could take time.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Meh. I'm not convinced by the article.
I've done plain text and spreadsheets and found them to be about the same.
Using a database lets me include as much information as I want and will make adding it to my website easier.
