SCTFL Forum Upgrade
« on: June 10, 2020, 08:34:56 pm »
All,

We've upgraded the forums to the most recently published version. We deemed this necessary in order to get rid of known security vulnerabilities, and to improve our ability to prevent spam.

However, this has had some side effects on some of the older components. One casualty is the normal theme, which was last updated in 2007. If you want to switch off of that theme, follow these steps:
1) Go to your profile
2) Go to Look and Layout
3) Hit the "Change Theme" button next to your "Current Theme"
4) Pick a different theme (I'm using DeepBlue atm)

(Note: I've reset everyone to Deep Blue for now. We'll try to figure out how to get the old theme up and running again.)

We'll work on getting things back to normal in the near future.

Just pointing out: the forums cannot be accessed right now without logging in. Considering we had a ton of guests frequenting the forums, it is worth thinking about.
- Buenos días.
- You're not the nurse.
- No.
- You're not here to give me my medication?
- No, but I am here to ease your pain.
- Guess they couldn't save me, eh?
- No, but there's still a chance you could save me.

I've re-enabled the ability for guests to view the forums.

That's a very difficult question to answer, maybe we can crowdfund a social study. I recommend a sample set of at least n = 100000 otherwise it wouldn't be a significant study.

Update:
1) All of the tools should be working now - /report, /signup, /stats.
2) Staff should be able to [Confirm] [Edit] [Void] reports/signups as usual.
3) The "POST REPORT" and "SIGN UP" buttons on the board topics redirect to the tools.
4) The clan filter on the match report boards shows up, but doesn't actually filter yet. TBD
5) You can specify your country and clan in your profile again.

I now know how to update modern themes with our SCTFL customizations, for the most part, so it's likely that we'll try to put together a new theme using the old theme's color/layout settings.

After a LOT of work by the great @bernadinho, we have now switched everyone off of DeepBlue. Big thanks to berni for all the work he put in on the new theme!

Everyone let us know if you have any feedback.
