    Wink NEW FORUM UPDATES - Maybe you can help?

    Hello everyone!

    Rick here from SocialPoint.
    Some of you might have heard but I wanted to make it official and let you know the plans we are making here.
    We have been researching for months on how we can make a better forum for you as we have seen many people complain about this current one. With regards to SPAM or being locked out etc.

    We want to be as honest as possible for you as we know you deserve this.
    So...

    We looked into and even tried to add some of the suggestions from you guys, with regards to adding spam blockers and updating the software etc..and we found that these either did not work OR would be very time consuming.

    With many meetings and discussions, we know that we want to have a forum that really works for you.
    We have decided to make a BRAND NEW Forum which is in the process of being created!
    YAY!!!!!


    BUT:
    We have seen that some people would like to see some of the main post threads from this one.
    Our first thought was to transfer all of this data across from this one to the new one.

    The issue we have is that it will be very difficult to to do this whilst trying to automatically delete ALL spam.

    So, this is where you can come and and provide some help.
    If you know of some posts that you believe are important or are relevant, you could post a comment below with the URL [ex: [url]http://forums.socialpointgames.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=130][/url]
    that links to it, and we will add these FIRST posts to the new one and so the conversations can start again if and when needed.

    Obviously all of the comments will not be added as you guys will have to sign up to the new one and we can start afresh.

    We cannot wait to get this new one running and we will have some great new things to make the forum the place to be if you are a hard core player

    We really appreciate your patience in regards to not making this sooner, BUT we feel that making the game better was a priority.

    I'm Against the new forum idea
    BUT:
    We have seen that some people would like to see some of the main post threads from this one.
    Our first thought was to transfer all of this data across from this one to the new one.

    The issue we have is that it will be very difficult to to do this whilst trying to automatically delete ALL spam.
    Ignoring members input for years to just make a new forum is unacceptable , Beside what spam that will make the process difficult ?! we are deleting spams for months -- 1 year and half for me -- yeah they come daily but they are under control so the forum is nearly spam free ...at least not that we have to sacrifice all threads here
    So, this is where you can come and and provide some help.
    If you know of some posts that you believe are important or are relevant,
    that links to it, and we will add these FIRST posts to the new one and so the conversations can start again if and when needed.

    Obviously all of the comments will not be added as you guys will have to sign up to the new one and we can start afresh.
    Again copying the FIRST post is useless cause in general the 1st post contain a question or an idea then the discussion begin ,,,,in monster discussion threads the 1st post is usually the mosnter state and skills with the poster asking what do you think ??? after that each player share what he thought ,,,then people who get the monster share their game play etc ,,,,,

    So copying 1st post has no meaning

    Beside many vBulletin experts said the problem is in managing the forum ..vBulletin has many plugins that ket you control the forum and the forum is not behind saving

    I prefer to stuck with this forum instead , and the admins team do their job free so you have nothing to complain or fee to worry about

    I was not expecting an entirely new forum to be introduced and this trashing of everyone's prior posts doesn't sit well with me.

    Some of my recommended threads:

    I've had this happen on another forum several years ago but they were able to keep all the content from the old forum in an 'archived' thread in the new one.

    Some people might feel attached to the old forum because its their posts that are being removed and not remembered. But honestly, most of the threads I see on the front page of a any section are from late to mid 2016 and half of those don't even have any comments/replies.

    Although I started playing recently, I see the new forum as a means to weed out all the junk/bad info, out of date info and of course low quality posts.
