The forum and administrative updates
Many of your have noticed some problems with how the forum has been operating over the last few weeks. For most it is still working fine however for others there are some continuing problems including:
- Posts not receiving tacos
- Bank interest problems
- Notifications not working
- Advertisement problems
In the last few weeks proboards has improved their ad blocking, censoring and this will continue over the next few weeks. It will hopefully filter out the redirect or hazardous ads.
The monetary system is slightly more complicated, currently it is working with some issues mentioned above. The monetary system used by proboards is no longer supported, meaning it will no longer be updated or fixed, therefore it will likely break at points in the future. I will try to limit this to the best of my ability. There is also no current alternative on proboards. Which means we are limited in what we can do overall.
All of this is mainly due to Proboards developments over the next while, as indicated below:
“ We’ve made a lot of changes, upgrades and progress, but we are also facing financial challenges and other difficulties attributed to the pandemic. V6 work continues and looks better than ever, and will be available soon.”
So in the foreseeable future, there will likely be changes to Proboards as we move to V6. This will likely have implications for all of our plugins, the services and games we offer and our themes.
I’ll continually liaise with proboards staff to ensure this impacts us in the least possible way and I will ensure I regularly check in, in this thread, to keep you all updated on the changes and our progress.
Additionally, I’ll be working on other possible alternatives so that 10000 Islands is able to adapt to the changes in the future.
If you have any questions, please get in touch.
