Welcome to our new forums!

Postby Chris » Mon Feb 06, 2006 4:35 pm

You've no doubt noticed by now that our Introversion forums have all undergone some changes. We wanted to find a way to unify our forum system, without losing the individual flavour of each community.

So generally speaking, the Uplink forums still look like Uplink and the Darwinia forums still look like Darwinia. You'll see some new "link" forums in there for "Introversion News" and "Introversion Lounge". These are shared forums which will appear within each community forum, and will take on that theme - ie if you read Introversion News from the Darwinia forums it will be shown in the Darwinia theme.

There is also a new Introversion forum which you can find at http://forums.introversion.co.uk/introversion/. This is where the Introversion News and Lounge forums are actually located, and we've also put in links to the most important areas of each community forum. So by looking here you can get an overview of everything that is happening with Introversion.

Theres still work to do - we need to create a proper theme for the Introversion forums, and we'd love to hear your feedback on the new arrangement. Hopefully we've managed to bring together our community without losing any of the individual flavour of each game.


Have fun!
Chris, Mark, Tom and Johnny

ZOMG FIRST POST!

Ahem. Nice new design lads, general forums are always a good idea, you going to move the General forums from each section into them, merge them together, or keep the old ones seperate, and just lock them off over time as an archive?

Also viewing the forums as forums.introversion.co.uk/introversion is an interesting experience to say the least.

I think we should have individual forums within each game community for nattering.
As we saw with the Darwinia forums, the nattering and the natterers are very different to the uplink ones.
Forcing us all to natter together would be a Bad Thing (TM).

Not sure about the Darwinia users mixing with the primarily Uplink players :?

As deepsmeg said, the userbase is very different.

Interesting... So here, Uplinkers will see avatars and Darwinia-ers will see sigs as well?
Anyway, smart works to all involved.

Edit: Hmm, apparently not. Can't see my Darwinia Avatar :(

Ah come off it lads. So the user base is different, yeah and? They will learn to get along.

I'm not the most amicable person no these forums, I'm known to be a complete bastard at times, but as long as people are polite enough to each other and attempt to use English what's the problem?

Looks like everyone now has three sets of post counts?
Some people talk because they have something to say. Others talk because they have to say something.

Four?

I see the ones in the Uplink forum, the ones in Darwinia forum, and the ones on the section shared between them...
