Full Version: New CDO Forum - Come help us test it!
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
If you saw Admiral's previous news update, we're looking at moving to New Forum software in 2020.

We've been successful in setting up Discourse: a very forward thinking and mobile friendly system that makes creating posts as easy as it is on Facebook. When installed like an app on your phone and with notifications enabled, it functions in much the same way as a modern social media platform but with all the benefits of it still being a forum!

If you'd like to join us on this new adventure, please reply here and I'll send you an invite to the email address your signed up to CDO with. You may have to check your spam folder for the invite once sent.

I look forward to seeing you all on the new CDO Forum!

Edit: I've opened public registrations now!

Please note that all our best content will be transferred manually from old to new CDO, over the course of 2020. So you'll not see the gems be lost.
Sent invites to both of you! Happy

I'll get to this when I have a little time to peruse it with the full attention such an endeavour deserves. Well done, Xander, I can't imaginet his kind of change has been small work.
Since I cannot open any more topics in the new forum, I write down my thoughts here before I forget them again.

I miss a gallery section where everyone can present his army.  No feedback, no blog, just pure army.

I also find the restriction to open new topics not optimal, at least not in the initial phase when the new forum should be filled with life.

Also I don't find the forum clear enough, I miss (besides a gallery section) further subdivisions, like for stories (fluff), tactics or new rules. I'm afraid that all the new content will simply "disappear".

The new emojis I don't like either, too modern. I miss the usual old emojis.

So far my first thoughts. Takes Hat off

Haven't noticed that you cant open topics, thats odd. We will have to have a look at that asap. Happy

I talked to Xander about this, as I understood it he wanted it to grow organically and then add structure as its needed until we are back to as many subsection as is needed. I trust him there since afaik its his jobb to build sites for companies etc. But I shared your thoughts here, guess we are "oldies" in that regard... Tongue

There are plans to recreate the site part of CDO as well, with showcase armies etc. With new and smoother tools...

Ill see if I can add our old emojis as well. Pretty sure thats possible. Takes Hat off

@Zanko: Ok, there was a cap on topics created in the first 24h. I upped it a fair bit, so now you can post again. Happy
One more question - how long can I edit a post in the new forum?

Here (and in the German forum which I use mostly) I can edit my posts all time which I like a lot cause I can give my thread a cool structure with all new apinted models in the 1st posts.

You can see it here

As far as I know there's no limit?

This is under "Badges / Editor", so I thought there would be a time limit for editing a thread:

Editor
This badge is granted the first time you edit one of your posts. While you won’t be able to edit your posts forever, editing is encouraged — you can improve the formatting, fix small mistakes, or add anything you missed when you originally posted. Edit to make your posts even better!

Yes, that is the default for the forum. But its changed to "forever", so people can set up their threads the way they like.

There are definitely some settings to adjust who can make posts based on their trust level. I'll see what I can do to lower those so that new members can make posts. Happy
If you are thinking it has been a bit quiet on here lately, it is because most people are posting on the new forums. It works really well.
I've signed up for the new forum. Anyone experience same problem as I? Lots of pictures (especially in your "Tjub's blog", Tjub) aint showing, but I can right click on those missing pictures and when opening link in another window a "chaos-dwarfs.com/images/photobucket/tjub/"-url opens and I can see the picture? Unsure
I think we managed to fix that now, let me know if is still a problem. Send a PM on the new forum. Happy
