    Hello dear members of RPG-Directory!

    We are so happy and excited to finally open RPG-Directory on our new shiny forum software! And we hope you, the members, are equally excited! We've got a brand new skin, made by Lint Roller with the help of many other people. You can read more about the new skin, and also report bugs or things that look weird here (or just say it's plain awesome :D): http://www.rpg-direc...;#entry11202799

    As you can see, the Forum Layout has changed as well. We've added a lot of new areas, new subforums within Managing your Board, a new Interest Check forum. We've expanded the Skindex, Play-By Icons, Codex and Templates sections and much more to reflect our new mission statement! And to make our new mission statement clear, it is posted in our rules and information forum: http://www.rpg-direc...showtopic=72650

    Not all changes in Forum Layout have been made yet, but that will steadily happen in the coming next weeks. There are also many mods we still need to install that will make using RPGD as a forum much easier. But that will steadily be worked on hard the next coming days as well! We'll keep you up to date when new things are added so you won't be confused.

    We as staff really hope that our members will pick up right where we left on the old Invisionfree board. And that is to post, submit your own skins, documentations, codes, help each other out and share your experiences and discuss amongst each other! We also hope you will continue to spread the word of RPG-D to your friends, so that RPG-Directory will be the home of all roleplayers and rpg owners!

    ~RPG-Directory Staff Team

    A few notes: All avatars we're removed in the process, so you have to re-upload your avatars! There's nothing we could do about that.

    For help on figuring out how to do things, from pm'ing to editing your profile, you can look here: http://www.rpg-direc...ore&module=help

    I'm gonna be honest...so far I'm not really a fan. Navigation won't be easy for me.

    I imagine that I'll eventually warm up to it since there's really no choice in the matter since I'd prefer to stay and not find a new community but I'm not really digging it so far. I find it extremely hard to navigate and kind of frustrating. But so i'm not all negative nancy here, I appreciate the effort and hard work that was put into trying to make the D better.

    Re: Navigation;
    What aspects of the navigation do you feel could be improved? IPB 3.2 is essentially the same set up as 1.3, so if there's any tweak or particular link list that was on the old layout that you feel would be beneficial to this one, that'd be great information for us to have.

    I love the new site* *pets pretty site*

    me wants. Now.

    That is all.

    Kbye.



    It's not a new community, its the same community just on the latest (and greatest) software that was used previously. It will be great, especially for all the changes the D wishes to make.

    I understand that....I'm saying that I have to get used to the things I don't like because I want to stay as opposed to finding somewhere else to go

    As Mousie said, we would really appreciate your feedback on the things you don't like, where you're confused navigation wise, or would like to see something that was on the old Invisionfree forum! It's all new for everyone, even I have to find my way around, but with feedback from you, the members, we can make RPGD as perfect as possible.

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments, we're really happy that most of you really love the new forum software! Of course there's a very small learning curve, but everything is way better then the old ipb1.3 software!

    Okay, I'm in love. And if I weren't broke, I think IPB would have been the way that I went. I love love love the look. What I especially like is the right aligned sidebar. It's unique, fun, and fresh. The skin is AWESOME! I also like that we can like posts. That's something neat. Great jobs, darlings!
