    • Making a lighter board

      Dear Board Users,

      As you might have noticed, the there are currently a lot of sections visible which should be in the Pre-Merged-Universe archive.
      This is due to some changes we need to make for our "new" board software. These changes will include deletion of old and not used sections and posts. This action should have been done before the upgrade to WBB4.1. Sadly we need to fix this now.
      We hope that deleting all this old stuff should also make the board load normally again.

      Please be informed that more changes are to come, we need to organize better our forum for an enhanced performance

    • Dear Board Users,


      due to your feedback on our actions we decided to stop deleting posts for now. We are sorry that we haven't informed you early, we will do this next time.
      We decided to give you roughly a week until the 29th january 23:59 GMT+1 to tell us all threads you want to keep from the sections we need to clean.
      Those threads then will be saved in an extra area and moved back afterwards if their section then still exists.


      Sections we will clean:
      Archives pre-merged unis (will be deleted completly and threads will be moved into a new section)
      Archive version 2.0 (everything older than the 1.1.2015 will be deleted, does not include subforums except spamboard archive)
      Spamboard Archive (everything in here older than the 1.1.2015 will be deleted)


      Please post the threads you want to keep in this thread:
      Threads that should be saved

    • Dear players,

      As a result of your complaints regarding deletion of old archives , we are working on a solution to bring back old posts .

      We don't know when we'll have the backup yet and will it be done.

      The backup is done only to allow concerned players save important topics and relevant posts that they want to keep.

      We'll keep you informed about the backup schedule

    • Dear users,

      as already mentioned in the previous post we will delete threads in the Archive version 2.0. To be more precise, we will delete all posts in the main archive section and all posts older than 1.1.2015 in the Spamboard Archive. The other subsections won't be touched. While we are doing this, you might see a different sorting in the archive, this will only be temporary. The deletion will start on the 22nd of April and might take a few days.


      In the week until then the following sections might be unavailable for posting and creating new threads. This will be needed because some sections will also be deleted in the week up to the 22nd. In the process only sections will be delete, the threads will just move to other sections. The sorting of deleted sections will be replaced by labels, which will be quickly accessable via the normal forumlist.

      Sections that will be deleted without threadloss:
      Skins
      GNN Reports Archive
      GNN Interviews Archive
      Account Give-away
      Account Search
      Same-Universe Account Trading
      Lands of Legends
      The OGame Nebula
      Space Diaries

    • Dear users,

      the sections now are deleted and the archive has a new structure. We deleted 132,871 threads with 1,461,644 posts. Currently the Post- and Pointcounter of users that were affected by the deletion are displaying wrong numbers. This currently can't be fixed because the process causes the board to become unresponsive. On monday we will search for a way to get it to work.
