The problem, which I guess I changed before you saw it, was the size was too big. (I set part of my sig to size 7, which made the text small before the change)

WILDCARD

Welcome back DUDE!!

This place really went down the tubes after you left. I missed you ;P

How is life? Man this is so crazy  Grin


Funnily enough, just the other day I was gonna hit you up by email to ask you how life is and everything, it seems like so long since you disappeared.

btw, I changed my name after you left. I'm Dark Prevail.

Yeah I missed this place, but it was probably just as well I left when I did but I'm back now. I'm good, I've moved houses and got a new job so life is going ok I guess.

These forums were one of the best communities I was part of so when I saw it was being shutdown I had to step in as much as I could, pretty ironic really considering a couple of years ago I shut them down myself. But there is too much info here on these forums, they need to be kept open. I am going to redesign the main page to point to the best bits like the ABC archives, online help/faq/etc.

Name changes are confusing I'll have to remember that, I think people's avatar's where the biggest identifier.

wildcard?

na_th_an?

Forum alive?

Did I step back into past?

I'm kind of on the same line as KiZ.

Anyway, great to see the forum back alive. Is there some thread about this?

Ok, ok. I'll look for it. This really should have been posted in the news.

Yeah the forums are back as they just couldn't die, they had to be rushed to the hospital but should be ok now Smiley

I've posted the reopening as a news item now, anyone can post news items at the moment - that will only change if there are problems with spam/etc

Good to see you back too, one of the most prolific QB game makers.

One thing I've noticed is that since the URL formatting is different on SMF versus PHPBB forums, any old links to specific forum posts at Qbasic News are dead.

Old URL: http://forum.qbasicnews.com/viewtopic.php?p=127029

New URL: http://forum.qbasicnews.com/index.php?topic=10578

I wonder if there's anyway to make a little php app that figures out the proper post and converts the old PHPBB url into the SMF url?

Maybe it's not a huge deal to anyone else, but I've just been noticing in old issues of QB Express that just about every news entry links to a forum post here (or at fb.net), and it's really disappointing that all the links are broken...especially since the content is still here.

I've done a quick hack job so old topic s are redirected to their SMF but its only topics not individual posts.

Nice work Wildcard! Smiley Good to have things back to the way they were Wink

BTW the move to SMF seems to have eaten up the first character of everyone's sig Tongue

Cheers!
