Welcome to the new StarQuest Website! We are working on transferring forum data from the old website so we can still have all of the old posts. This should be completed at some point, but it may take awhile. In the mean time, feel free to use the forums in their current state!
Hey! I'm Dan, and I've been working on this brand new website for StarQuest. It's a long story.
Ever since SQ 1.0, we've been using Enjin to create our website. Enjin's pretty good; it was easy to use and did its job well. Unfortunately though, we have to pay to use it, and we're on a cost-slimming diet. So Ginger asked whether I wanted to work on a new website. Of course, I agreed, and about a month of sleepless nights later, we're here.
These forums are not Enjin - they don't use any code or assets or anything from Enjin. It's completely fresh, and you'll notice it looks a lot cleaner too. It should still be familiar to use; I designed the website to have a low learning curve for anyone coming over from the old forums. The links are still at the top, the recent posts still at the side, topics work how they always have done. I even made the theme resemble that classic look. (remember those old like buttons, anyone? they're back :D)
Of course I didn't implement the entire website in a month. This is still a work in progress beta version of the website, so expect bugs. I'm planning to organise and refactor the code to make it easier to maintain, then I'll start adding missing features, like notifications and such.
So, if you find any bugs, do report them to me and I'll shoo away the space beavers with a stick.
You'll notice I've been using formatting in this news article. That's right, we still support BBCode. That means you can
send to gulag do all sorts of crazy things in your posts. It's only a subset of what we had before, and more tags will be added over time, as well as general improvements to the editor (like an actual colour palette) but for now you can make all the colourmatic posts you want. please, don't
So ya. Welcome to your new home. Hope ya like it!
