Welcome to GamersOasis, again!
« on: April 03, 2017, 07:51:04 AM »
So, to repair the longstanding decay, and rust, and other kruft.

Archived forum: http://gamersoasis.net/backup/

I've reinstalled.  It's fresh, snappy, etc.  I'm working through things.

There may be a few issues here and there, please let me know.

You will need to re-sign up.

Issues of identity should it arise, should still be able to be resolved by communication through the backup forum which is 'fully' (hah!) operational, or at least as operational as it was before-hand.  Or should be anyways, I can't access that one at work, so will need third party confirmation.

I've been deleting 'odd' accounts as they come in, as I've yet to get recaptcha and various anti-spam measures installed yet.   I will be restoring old moderator accounts as they contact me.  This means, if you've signed up with an account that is a janky series of numbers and letters, and it's actually legit.  Woops.  I didn't recognize you and I killed the account. :P

I can also resolve things on a case-by-case basis through e-mail.  This will be much jankier, and I expect in most cases there's easier solutions.   Will update and spam as things come up.

Yeaaaaah.  The everything is missing.   There's lots to be adjusted yet.   Some stuff may, regrettably, not be available for 2.0.13.   I suspect most important things will be though.

I'm in. Thanks for the fresh start and all the work that you guys have done to try to get things fixed.

I assume adding new areas of the forum is on the to do list?

I'm back! And my front too.  Wasn't sure if I would be told you can't come in here with those shoes.

@Ambar / @Slice

The old names aren't taken, if you're wanting a switch, that's totally cool too.  Just don't want to confuse people into thinking they can't have what they used to.   This is an entirely new DB, without some of the broken tables and configuration that were plagueing the existing site.

Email activation of accounts is working.  No longer need admin approval.

This combined with recaptcha should be a decent deterrent to bot registrations, as bots would be required to register and click a valid e-mail link on top of passing Google's code, which is at least somewhat decent at what it does.
