News & Updates Site Update (Friday: 1/19/2018)

Hey All,

The big site update is finally upon us. We’ve been preparing since last year ever since xF2 came out to developers in Alpha. The software has been in release (Gold) for a little bit now as we finished stabilizing.
For those of you who don’t know, RpNation is powered by the xenforo software and they released a new Version 2 which is faster, more efficient and easier to code for. Needless to say, this will make adding new features, including many you guys have been wanting to return or to become available for a long time, much easier to implement or re-implement in the long run. This will also likely make it easier to update and maintain the site as a whole. We’re all very excited about it. :D
We will be doing the site upgrade on January 19th. Sometime between 3-6pm (eastern) is when I will begin and the site will be down for about 1-3 hours as most of the prep work was done before hand. Most of the wait time will be waiting for the upgrade script to update the software.

This update will come with several new features:
  • Roleplay Tabs (The ability to link roleplay threads together)
  • Post Macros (The ability to save and repost content in the editor with the click of a button)
  • All Account menus simplified.
  • Hosted Project Improvements
  • More Ratings (Different types of likes based on the section you are viewing)
  • Editor Improvements (Things like inserted links, bbcode mode and much more).
  • Light Style refreshed
  • Dark Style Refreshed
  • New BBCodes by Lyro Lyro
  • Way too many things to list here.

Interrupted Features:

These features will not immediately work after the update but don’t worry, your data is not lost. If you want to save something, go ahead before Friday.
  • Bookmarks (You won’t be able to immediately see your bookmarks list but it will start working again in the foreseeable future).
  • Dice (Same as Bookmarks)
  • Threadmarks (Same as Bookmarks)
  • Color Me Style (we are working on a replacement, the developers of those styles have not released color pickers again)
  • Medals (We are relocating medals to a master page where anyone can see who has what medal until we can move it back to profiles.
Removed Features:

This is an older feature that does not have a replacement currently but we are working on it.
  • Covers (This is the image you stick in the top of your profile).

Notes:
  • Our discord will remain open during this process.
  • Proper guides and announcements about all the new features and bbcodes will be released after the site is upgraded.
  • Update your iOS and Android apps, updates have been pushed to the app stores to prepare for this update.
  • If you have questions or concerns please post below :).

Thanks to Lyro Lyro for being a huge help over the last year and moving over our entire BBCode Library over to xF2 and for all the new upcoming bbcodes he has created. None of this would have been possible with out him, our resident Lord of the Dance BBCode and the rest of our amazing staff. @Administrator & @Moderator team and the rest of the community for making my job worth it.
