Hello, and welcome back everyone.

After 3 days of tedious work the forum is finally back up again and ready to be violated once again by you foul members.

It luckily took exactly as long as I expected it would because we had to recreate the search index so that SEARCH will FINALLY work as intended (hopefully).
It only took 16 hours starring at a screen to make sure it didn't glitch.... :roll:
Funny thing though.. catchphrase "silent hill" can't be searched since it's too common. heh.

Personal message to whatsyourname who didn't understand what the big deal was about. This is why I handled it, and not you.
Because it pissed me off and I felt like having a childish reaction about it.

POSSIBLE TROUBLESHOOTING

Wrong Password
You may or may not have difficulties logging in. This is because of the conversion and the encryption of passwords. Please use the Recover Password-function to retrieve a new password so that you may log in should this be a problem.

Wrong Email Address
You may or may not have difficulties retrieving your password through the Recover Password-function if your email address is no longer in use or you just don't have access to it any more. Please use the following steps to resolve this: Put your head -> between your legs -> kiss your ass goodbye.

Okey, I'm kidding. Should you be locked out from your account because of an email account no longer in use making it impossible for you to use the Recover Passord-function, feel free to send an email to lockedout@silenthillforum.com and I'll give you a hand, but certainly not to kiss your own ass.
Please write in proper English so it makes sense.
NB! Provided contact email address will only work for 1 month, then I'm removing it. After that you're really on your own.


FEATURES PRESENT! (some new, some old, some work differently)

1) You can now file a report regarding topics/posts AND private messages.
2) Appropriate Moderator Panel is in place to make it easier to keep tabs on all reports filed.
3) User Notes now possible for Moderators incase someone is a repeat offender. (so behave!)
4) Warning System in place with full "notify member" function to simplify
5) BUILT IN CACHE SYSTEM TO SAVE BANDWIDTH! Cheer with me, people.
6) Quick reply available on all forums
7) Appropriate WORKING restrictions on signatures and avatars.
8) Birthdays! We're still keeping tabs on them.
9) Working search. woot!
10) Friend list! (and not-friend list. hehe)
11) Feed should be activated, but got no clue how it works :)
12) Easily Manage subscribtion (watched topics AND FORUMS) through your User Control Panel
13) Bookmarking!
14) Spoilers are still here! But make sure old spoilers still work.

FEATURES NO LONGER AVAILABLE

1) Dashboard is now sadly gone forever.
2) Point system and Shop is unavailable, and haven't found any completed addons for it yet.
3) Gender icons... currently not present, but may revive it when new template is up
4) Custom additional rank after X posts is currently unavailable. May revive.
5) Subscription to Cult Club. Sorry, but actively looking for a working mod for this. or something that will do almost the same.
6) A variety of stuff I don't remember installing and probably won't miss anyway.

WHAT DO I DO NOW?
Browse forum, test it out and if you discover anything wrong; Can't see something, error messages smacking you in the face, you name it. Please let us know in Bugs & Glitches thread.
http://www.silenthillforum.com/viewtopi ... =6&t=22080

CULT MEMBERS..TO BE
Send a PM to Vixx directly and she'll set something up for you until our system is automated again.

And yes, we know default theme makes you want to scratch out your eyes and inner organs with a toothpick.

Thanks to Maja for her hard work (and sleepless nights) behind the scenes.

Thanks also to the moderators who kindly went through and pruned old/duplicate/unneeded threads in the run-up to the migration. I'm very grateful for your help. :)

One question though. Is there or is there going to be a way to change it?

Not yet :D

Template is in the works to my understanding, it just needs to be completed before going live.

This is all awesome, and I know that the template's on it's way, but is the Shop-related stuff coming back too, or is it gone like the dashboard? Because dammit, I was just a few away from having my SH item list complete :x

There are no addons or mods out of BETA for it yet. It will most likely return when there are.

Should current Cult members be PMing Vixx, or just people wanting to become cult members?
