    Old news are littered with HTML tags and are inconvenient to read. And old news are for the most part more interesting than new news. Please fix it.

    An example:
    http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/how-to-make-friends-and-influence-previews.19458/

    When it should look more like this:
    The front page article can be found using Duck Duck Go for example but having a direct link in the thread already (or just getting rid of these tags) would be much better.

    Also Taluntain , could you swap the HR 1.1a link with a 1.5 link? GOG Arcanum thread is linking to it and there's no one to contact to fix it.

    XenForo_Html_Renderer_BbCode::renderFromHtml(); is a static PHP method that does what you want.
    One would have to write a small php script that fetches the old news entries from the table and processes them using this method then writes back to DB.

    Your Mind
    Someone needs to add the download to T-A's downloads section. Contact the guys in charge there. Dark Elf and Vorak seem to be around. GOG mod or OP will need to change the link to reflect the new download version, you can't go replacing old versioned download links with updated content. Ideally mod download links shouldn't contain versions so that they can be silently updated when new versions pop up.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    They won't because they can't.

    That was also the reason I stopped writing reviews for tcancer, after barely 2 years they fucked up all formatting with a forum switch. But the new forum brought you the ratings, so rejoice.
