Planet Descent Website Upgrade
« on: October 03, 2011, 05:12:32 PM »
Planet Descent will be upgrading from Blue Lasers to Vauss Cannon on Sunday, the ninth of October, 2011.

During this upgrade the site may at times be unavailable, as I will be using a cloaking device.

Guidebot is coming back to get you.

Update: Mission Completed. A few bots remain, I will be hunting these down and destroying them as time permits. See the 'To Do' list in this thread.

No, the site was made from a back-up of this site, from before you were registered here. And registration is closed, I'll open it for you if you want, but let me know when you have registered so I will approve it.

Or just wait till Sunday. ;)

Hmm, a little off topic, but I still am not sure if I'm entirely happy with the blue color of the actual posts in the forum...Probably wouldn't have thought about it before, but I guess I've found through the time I've been using Dusky 2 that I like the black color of posts.

Then there's the fact that the blue seems a bit too bright to be proper classic PD blue... :-\

Other than that though, looks good, can't wait to put it to proper use. :)

The site will be deleted, except for the theme. Or maybe not, I might leave it there to use to tryout stuff.

In one hour I am going to put the site in maintenance mode and begin the process.

Mission completed. Still a few tweaks needed, but report any anomalies in this thread, please.

Still to do: (so don't report these, please ;) )
Add links in the menu: Reactor, Downloads, Articles Download link added, there are no articles, need a link to Reactor.
Fix button 'Hide enclosed from Suspicious Visitors' (where did that come from?)
Add Alio's robot icons.


[spoiler]Tell people about the new spoiler button.[/spoiler]

In your profile, choose one of two themes, PDdark (default) or PD light.
