Website- and Shop Update – soon to come!
Ahoy pirate scum!
Each ship has to say farewell when it reached the end of its term of service. And so does this website, the forums and the online store. Since some weeks we are working hard on local servers. We are adjusting screws, test, adjust some screws again, retest everything, migrate data, accidentally lose data, find the data and store it in drawers.
You can see the result within the next weeks with 100% flavor and 50% more yeast. But we don’t want you to be groping in the dark, here are some information about the changes.
Expecting a spectacular, contemporary, extraordinary design? Sure that! Doh! And a search function FTW!
Because our old forum software saw the light of the day together with Edward “Blackbeard” Teach, the last chance of data migration to a newer system was 1821. That’s why our goblin responsible for woodwork and computer science had to write a data migration script by himself. A restart using an empty forum is no option for us. Now we can import all users, threads and posts … just the uploaded photos will go down in the wake.
Everything is new and so shiny! The new shop will feature the standard functions like “Me wants!” and “Give money!” but also shapely stuff like a wish list and related products.
The Password and other Sensitive Data
We might be pirates, but we aren’t villains! We can guarantee you that we acted very responsible while working on sensitive data. Because we don’t have, want or need any access to the clear text passwords, we just ask you to reset your password when logging in for the first time. Sounds fair, doesn’t it? Wink
And … THE COMMUNITY DOWNLOAD!
Yes, you heard that right! There will be a community download area where you can upload all your house rules, self-tatted scenarios, campaigns, pepakura rum barrels and even blueprints for fake rubber hooks. Everything neatly sorted in categories. We will provide you a special fan-project package containing some guidelines and a special fan-project logo for you to use. Because we would like to control what gets uploaded on our servers, we will review each submission before publishing it.
We hope to see you soon on our new system!
