Right, we're now running XenForo 2.0. Why? Because progress, that's why. Also using old deprecated software is bad.

There are still some tweaks and mostly minor features to bring back online (like there always have been in some cases) but core functionality appears to be up and working.

The front page is up, and we can post content again. We're aware there are some issues with updating forum indexes with the latest post, and alerting users to new posts in the news forum. Rest assured this is our top priority and we'll get right on that.

Thanks to @Twiglard for his work on the forum theme. Hopefully most of the bitching has been resolved now. And special thanks for his efforts on the back-end with code support.

The new theme is objectively nicer but for sure you've lost a certain nostalgia with the removal of those sexy geocities-esque buttons.

A quite lot of those old deprecated software get either unofficial patches (Arcanum,Gothic3,JA) or even ports in other engines(Daggerfall, UUnderworld Unity)...

I use Xenforo 2.0 on the forum that I own and administrate.

The fact of the matter is that I'm annoyed by all forum software now. Jelsoft's vBulletin circa the early to middle 2000s was fantastic; since then, shitty social media-esque features (chief among them Facebook likes/"reactions"), social media integrations, chatboxes, and various other bloatware features have dragged it all downhill. Xenforo (designed by the original guys who developed vBulletin) was supposed to be the solution to vBulletin's shittiness when it debuted around 2010, but it too has gone downhill in the same ways, and you also get nickel-and-dimed for paid features, a few of which Xenforo deliberately hamstringed in order to start charging for them—good search functionality, for example (they removed this preexisting feature and replaced it with a shitty, limited search function; you have to pay to get the good function back).

vBulletin 2005 would work better than all this bloated new bullshit to this day if someone simply updated its netcode and security backend and left everything else alone, but that doesn't pave the way for optimal extortion of money by keeping people dependent on largely unnecessary updates and superfluous features whilst charging a premium for what should be basic functionality.

RPG Codex LVLED UP^. This site is national treasure. Should be protected by UNESCO. Oasis of free speech, great library of knowledge about RPGs, old & new. Workshop and gathering place for based indie Devs (Atomboy Styg Vault Dweller RatTower Tyranicon and many more). It's objective good that RPG Codex exists

In the future I hope better news reporting, more reviews and even more direct help to based indie Devs working on future RPG classics will come out of this place. Cheers! to all Esteemed Gentlemen, RPG Connoisseurs and ShitLords

I think the big issue is that Xenforo 1.0 has a ton of well known, documented and unfixed security exploits (which I'm sure you of all people appreciate, especially with your vBulletin comment).

Considering some of the butthurt script kiddies we have sniffing about this place, it's probably best not to tempt fate.
