    • Restructuring of the Universe Sections

      Dear Users,

      we are currently working on a new concept for the universe sections because we should reduce the amount of sections we use by quite alot. When you open the Forumlist you will find a "Universe Testalot" right under Spica.
      The new sectiondesign will consist out of only 3 sections instead of the 8 that we currently for a universe. Also you will see directly if there is a new post in the CR, Top10 or normal section of the uni.
      When you open the unisection you will see some labelfilter in the top which you then can click to just view the according threads.
      As you maybe also noticed there is no archive in the uni anymore. CRs will stay in the CR-section and won't get archived after some time. Top 10 will move back into the CR-section and won't get closed anymore. The Top10 will also get a label marking them as old Top10 when they are moved as recently suggested. The other normal threads in the main uni section will get archived into two big archives for all unis together. One for threads that can get deleted after some time (Trade, Headhunts, Moonshots, Allysearch) and one for threads that will be kept and not deleted (Ally-Introduction, Wardeclatarions, War-CR-Threads).
      You probably wondering what will happen with the threads in the current archives, those will get sorted accordingly to the above mentioned three ways.

      For now we don't have a timeframe on when we will implement it, as we need to sort out the archives first which will take some time.
      If you have questions about it or constructive feedback feel free to post it here: Discussionthread: Restructuring of the Universe Sections

      PS: As there are no threads in the section and it is a concept section for now, the labelfilter don't link to actual labels currently and will just forward you to the Dashboard.

    • Dear Users,

      we are starting with with sorting out the Archives. This will take a while as some of those Archives have up to 6,000 Threads in them.
      We will look through the threads unitl the 1st oft June 2016 to find Ex-Top 10-CRs and mark them as those, all older Top10 won't be marked this way for now. If you find older Top 10s, you can simply report them and let us assign the label. All old CR's will get moved back into the CR-Sections, so none of those will be lost.
      The other Threads will get sorted into those two Archives:
      Alliances, Wars and General Talk
      Trades, Headhunts and Spam


      Also the Universe-Description were changed already (without the labelfilters). Now you can compare the Unis more easily as everything is in the same order for every Uni.

    • Dear Users,

      because we are already nearly done sorting the archives (only Quantum and Taurus aren't sorted yet), we will start with implementing the new concept on the weekend. As we need to assign new labels to all the threads that will get moved into one section, it will take a few hours or multiple days. We will start with Universe 1 and go down the list to the newest universes.

    • Dear Users,

      today we moved all Universe Sections to the new design. With this move we also changed the rules of the section a bit, please read them again: Universe Section Rules

      Most of the changes were just changes in wording, but some key changes were made for the War-Rules, please read them carefully.
      Questions about them can be asked here: Questionthread: New War Rules

      The archives for the Universe sections are now these two:
      Alliances, Wars and General Talk
      Trades, Headhunts and Spam
      Sidenote: CR's don't get archived anymore, Ex-Top 10 hits get moved back into the CR-Section.

      Also we moved the Pre-merge Top10's Archive into the archive section at the bottom of the board.
