Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

The urls have been updated now. Although, the url formatting you show is not correct and it likely represents an older version of phpbb. Did you write a script to walk through every single post to replace the URL? [:D] A simple sql query was all that was required. Calling it a script seems... grand...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

Given that the CBB doesn't include attachments other than user avatars, I'd suspect that the problem was largely the hosting service being bad abusive people, rather than the size of the attachments The problem was indeed server usage rather than file size. That is why I had to remove a very large ...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

I also updated the forums to the latest version of phpbb which has caused the smilies to stop working. It is a known issue and is due to be fixed in their next release. Out of curiosity, what functionality, if any, has changed? What can we now do in posts that we couldn't before? https://www.phpbb....

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

Not everything returned. There was a particular game thread- similar to the diachronic challenge thread- that I now realized was unfortunately pruned into oblivion. This one for example will return a dead link. Alas, I had some great insights, and it was really cool looking at the maps and what not...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

I am still hoping to restore the old posts back to the forum. But I have been pretty busy the past few months and haven’t had the time.

Re: Other Creativity

The names being in the ocean and vaguely similar to European place name (eg. Odessia > Odessa, Ukraine) makes me feel like that it's some sort of Mediterranean Sea inversion, but my eye can't see it It is. Breccia/Eskeria would be the Iberian peninsula and Illyria is just Italy flipped again. The r...

Nice. (Except that the river near Ull looks a bit strange, it seems to go uphill in the first half of its course...)

Ah man, you’re right.
I was updating an old map that had some rivers but no mountains and it just slipped by.

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

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.

Has anyone else played Heaven's Vault?
https://www.inklestudios.com/heavensvault/

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.

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...
