    New Website and Forum Coming Soon! Empty New Website and Forum Coming Soon!

    Post  Deim Thu Aug 20, 2009 3:16 am

    For all of you who hate the layout of this forum, fear no more! We have a couple of announcements to make. Firstly, we have acquired the domain name: Finalfantasyarmoury.com in light of the spelling of the recently announced "Armoury System" in Final Fantasy XIV, as well as to clear up confusion from our Canadian and European audiences. Both Finalfantasyarmory.com and Finalfantasyarmoury.com will direct to the main site.

    Secondly, we are in the process of completely revamping the forums and we are attaching them to the main site. Very soon, you will be able to link directly to forums much easier and fluidly from the main site, as well as log in on the main site and be able to navigate all of the pages of the website while staying logged into our database. This will make it easier when the database begins to become populated with information from the game, as you will be able to comment on items, quests, etc. as well as upload your own with the same username as your forum login name--without having to log in twice.

    In a nutshell, there will be no more 'forumotion' or forum bots, and the forum and main website will be linked. The only downside to this is that all forum users may have to re-register with the new forum! We are going to launch a beta version of the new forum in a week or so, so keep your eyes peeled!

    On another note, I'm looking to commission a sketch artist to do some custom artwork for the website, as I was contacted by Square Enix recently about the usage of their logos and screenshots--which are intellectual property and protected by copyright law. The new site will have some new artwork, in other words. Razz

    Thank you to everyone who has participated in these forums thus far, you have made the excitement for Final Fantasy XIV that much more exciting! We hope you'll like the new site as well as this one (...and we won't get mad if you like it better)!

    Actually yes! Are you familiar with Yoshitaka Amano and his artwork? Google him; he did a lot of artwork for past Final Fantasy titles. The website will follow his artistic themes. They'll be montage pieces of course, not his actual work--I can't afford him haha. But yes, there will be 'Amano-esque' moogles. Smile

    The problem with that is that this forum doesn't give me access to very much private information or the actual database entries that are created when users create accounts--so I would have no way to transfer them over other than hand doing each one (and even then, I don't know all your passwords; nor do I even have access to them without encryption). It's just much easier to have everyone make new accounts.

    Don't worry though, I'll give a fair warning before we launch and I do plan on doing a beta test period anyway to see if all is working as planned before I do all the artwork, etc. Most of you will probably have registered by then anyway! It'll be worth it in the long run. Razz

    Congratulation! New attractive layout will make this site more approachable.

    Question, will the older members on this site be transferred? If yes, will it show when they registered and their post, etc?
