► I would like to urge everyone to report spammers and bots as soon as you see them, by using the forum's built-in 'report this post' function (the little ! to the bottom right). Please do not reply to their threads or posts. This makes removing them more complicated for us doing the cleaning.

► The maximum size for avatars has been increased to 138x110 pixels. (Up from 110x110 pixels)

► The heart '<3' icon has been changed to [<3]

► The following new icons have been added: [:3] (':3'), :us-ak: (Alaska), :wikip: (Wikipedia), :wikt: (Wiktionary), :yout: (Youtube). The idea with the latter three is that you can use them when posting links etc.

Update:

► Several default ranks have had their postcount requirements increased. New required postcounts are:

----rupestrian: 1 (unchanged)
----hieroglyphic: 25 (unchanged)
----cuneiform: 75 (unchanged)
----sinic: 200 (up from 125)
----greek: 450 (up from 250)
----roman: 875 (up from 475)
----mayan: 1525 (up from 750)
----runic: 2450 (up from 1250)
----mongolian: 3700 (new rank)
----korean: 5325 (up from 1850)

Update:

► All ranks have had their banners updated.

► The flag icons have been given an overhaul, in order to better represent the states and nations that they actually belong to, rather than specific languages. As a result, a very large number of codes and tooltips have been changed, as you can see in this thread showing all the current icons.

Flags generally represent countries, not languages, and that's why this change has been made. Old posts should not be affected, but will keep the flag and tooltip at the time of posting. It is not my intention to discourage anyone from using the flag icons to symbolize languages, and I doubt that the tooltip mattered that much anyway, but this has been bugging me for way too long now. As was the case before, context will be your friend (for example the US flag just said 'Languages of the US', but it was still widely used for English; now it simply says 'United States').

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 version there are not many compatible theme options.

You may also notice that the forums are now at https://cbb.aveneca.com/ instead of http://aveneca.com/cbb/

► Due to inactivity, the specific German and Scandinavian forums have been removed.

► For the same reason, the ACH forum has been removed. Its posts are now found in the EE forum.

► The special ranks have been removed. The system of awarding these ranks hadn't really been working for quite some time, so in effect most of the ranks had become unattainable, which went directly against their intended purpose.

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.
