Remember we’re also on Twitter @outpost_skaro and from there you can find Nic, Eddie, Derek, Jack, Bunny and Alan all milling around as well.
Happy times and places
The Actual OS Team
The Outpost Skaro Forums, which I know some of you are missing, are now officially back.
We are doing a staged return to try and keep the server load down, so tonight all accounts with greater than 10 posts have been reactivated. Assuming there’s no hiccups, we’d hope to reactivate the other accounts in the next day or so, and finally re-enable registration after that.
Note that due to the migration of existing accounts, users will need to reset their password before being able to log in. Also, we’re still constantly tweaking the new setup, so don’t be surprised if there are changes over the next few weeks. (more…)
The move to the latest Outpost Skaro is now underway. In fact, if you’re reading this, then welcome to the new portal!
Doubtless there’s going to be a few hiccups along the way, but we’re confident now that the content from the previous site has been ported across to its new home. We’re hoping that the changes will make for a better experience for everyone, with the portal being simplified, while the forums will be more powerful.
Talking of the forums, they will be back soon. The migration of both the portal and forum content has taken a bit of time so far, and hasn’t always been the most straight forward, so we just want to spend some time checking over things to make sure everything’s where its supposed to be.
We want to thank everyone for staying with us as we move everything over. You’ll probably find the portal, and forums, evolve a bit over the next few months as we get everything exactly where we want it to be, but we’re confident this is going to make Skaro better for everyone.
For those wondering about the podcast, it’ll be next on the list for some long overdue updates and new episodes once the forums are up and running.
We’ll keep you all posted here as everything settles down.
