  1. Basically I have zero access to any of the back-end website editing.
  2. PM'd you about it.
  3. Shoutbox is where it's always been, on the right side of the forums (not mainpage). Although it's not really a shoutbox anymore - it's for status updates on your profile. That's why, when you view the replies, it brings you to the poster's profile. Also links are not working in it, and the cutoff is entirely too short. This is something that I can look into later, and perhaps there's a legacy shoutbox mod that I can get. Take a look at Alexia's post for updates on bugs/fixes/etc.
  4. UPDATE2: The permissions for certain boards appear to have changed. If there's a board or thread you're not able to reply to, please let me know on here or through private messaging. UPDATE: The maintenance has completed. There are some issues that are still being worked on. Some site links aren't working, the mainpage is.. missing.. and some user's avatars are not updating. Please be patient while these issues get ironed out. In the meantime, I want to hear your feedback on our new site. Do you like the colors? The background? Is the information laid out smoothly in an easy-to-read format? Do you have any questions on how to use some of the new features? Do you have any feedback on the boards we have? Please let me know what you think, while keeping in mind that the bugs are being worked on. Furthermore, if you're not a fan of the new theme colors, you can click the "Theme" dropdown at the bottom of any page and select the Default one. Thanks, Urban - Tomorrow (Thursday, 29th), we will undergo maintenance from 11:00am to 1:00pm central time (I think? They didn't give a timezone, lol). The maintenance is expected to last 2 hours only. During the maintenance, the Dojo will not be accessible. This upgrade will not be to the long-awaited Cobalt forum software. It will be an upgrade to our already-existing IPBoard software. It's still a good thing, just not a great thing. Because our forum software was so old, the site's theme had to be recreated for this upgrade. Things may look a little different. To what extent - I'm not sure. I didn't really get any information on what this upgrade will do for us, lol. Please be patient during the maintenance and don't freak out when you see the changes. I'll be discovering the changes at the same time as you. The only heads-up I have is that we might not have the shoutbox anymore, but I can't confirm that. IPBoard may have a mod for it too, I don't know. We'll see. (: Thanks, Urban
  5. Took 5 hours but we managed to finish the new dungeon 6man, lol.

      Same, we finished our first in about 3 hours and 50minutes. Second run took us an hour. Improvement.

      We had two groups going at once. First group finished about 30 minutes earlier. I think it'll be a lot easier from here on out though.

      Took us so long that we had to take a food break half way through lol.

  6. Revelation has caught my interest.

  7. The Blade & Soul Wiki is now officially partnered with NCSoft and can be accessed from the main Blade & Soul website. Get to editing! :3=

      What does mean other than some links?

      I don't know. Curse didn't even notify me of this, lol, so I assume nothing important will come of it. It's just nice to get recognized.

  8. Fixed that clickbaity title that had nothing to do with the post for you. - I honestly could care less about censorship in games as far as covering up breasts goes. I don't play games to perv on pixels. They are selling a product here. If their consumers (or whoever is receiving the money) want them covered up, they will be covered up.
  9. We are welcoming any fresh level 50s from Poharan or Iksanun after the server merge. Please click the "Apply here" button if you are interested (and check out our clan website, also linked above)! We recently finished leveling up our guild and no longer have a mandatory clan fee. (:
  10. Will do, thanks. (:
  11. Merges Hey guys, small update: I've merged the clan subforums per the recent server merging, which you can read about here. All of the threads in the clan subforums remain, they've just been moved into their appropriate "Group". If you have any issues with a missing thread or any questions regarding this, let me know. In case you didn't know, you can recruit members of any server within your group now. The dojo subforums now reflect that. (: In addition to that, I've removed the Marketplace due to lack of use - even moreso with the recent server merges. Columnist Our dear Columnist, Aquarius, has retired. The position is open for anyone interested. The Columnist transcribes official Blade & Soul updates to the Dojo and keeps an eye on all official news outlets for information our readers may be interested in. GM tweets, 3rd party website news, reddit, etc. If you are interested, please shoot me a PM. (: Bamboo I have been out of town all summer and won't return home until the 29th. After that though, we will host a Bamboo Costume giveaway for NA and EU (and for any kitties from those regions). Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks. (:
  12. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tOs3ilY7Nw[/media] You can't use https, you have to use http with 'watch' in the link. Syntax: http://(\w+.|)youtube.com/watch?v={2} What it's replaced with: <object width="560" height="339"><param name="movie" value="http://youtube.com/v/$2"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://youtube.com/v/$2" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="560" height="339"></embed></object> If you want to have a go at it, be my guest. (:
  13. How do you propose we fix that? ;3=
  14. Sorry about that, I've been out of town all summer. I've added Soul Fighter to the drop-down list. (:
