Cbox Etiquette
  • Okay, you guys, PLEASE READ THE RULES AND GUIDELINES. There have been complaints about the excessive use of profanity in the cbox, along with members belittling other members/their characters/plots/whatever. This needs to stop right now. While we allow profanity in threads (preferably with a warning), WE DO NOT WANT IT IN THE CBOX. Think of it this way - someone may be lurking around the site, considering joining. They decide to go glance around the cbox to see what the members are like. We want them to see happy people having happy conversations, not someone cussing up a storm and making fun of someone. I know we all play around... WURR's a big family with lots of love and plenty of crazy, but sit back and think about what you say in the cbox. You represent WURR, so play nice.

    Furthermore, if you ever feel like another member is badgering you or belittling you unnecessarily, pleasepleasePLEASE let a staffer know. That's why we're here. Like I said - we all joke around sometimes, but things can go too far. So let a staffer know if something happens. We want WURR to be a happy place and members shouldn't be made to feel anything less than awesome.

    That said... Take some things with a grain of salt. Tone is difficult to read sometimes, but... sometimes a joke is a joke.

THE MINISTRY WANTS YOU... FOR THE NEXT MINISTER OF MAGIC!
  • Clash 2.0 has been up and running for about two weeks or so, and now we've got something NEW to throw at you. Last year (in Clash era), the Ministry was under attack as someone - though we don't know who - decided to plant a bomb and cause even more chaos throughout the wizarding world. The former Minister of Magic - sadly - was one of the people lost in the attack. Throughout the investigation, his undersecretary has taken over that role, but now he is ready to retire.

    And so it has come to this... Minister of Magic Elections. Find the information: HERE.

    NOTE: You must have your character registered in the Clash before you can sign up. Sign-ups to run will close on March 23rd (Friday).

BACK FROM THE DEAD!

Hello wurrloves! As you can see the site IS back up! However, we're still not sure why it went down, or what happened to make it come back. That said, there's a chance that it could still go down again. Now would be a good time to back up all of your profiles and important threads for your safe-keeping in the event that wurr suffers a fatal relapse. Thank you for you patience during this time. Staffers are still working to find the best course of action regarding this matter. We shall keep you updated <3

JUST A TIP!
WASSUP WURR WELCOME BACK TO REALITY.

So, as Amber said above, we're asking people to back up threads and profiles to your computers and whatnot. Well, using the links you have won't work because of some domain issues, so we found a simple way to get to your threads easily.

Basically, a normal Wurr URL looks like this :

Code: Select all

http&#58;//wizardingrealm.net/index.php?showtopic=19520
Using that link won't work because of the domain. We have the ORIGINAL WURR DOMAIN still, which is the one from Invisionfree. So basically, a simple way to get to your threads from your thread trackers or favorites list is to replace this:

Code: Select all

http&#58;//wizardingrealm.net
in the URL with this:

Code: Select all

z8.invisionfree.com/Wizarding_Realm/
Put that all before the forward slash before "index.php" in the URL you want. The post number and everything is still the same, so you'll go right to the thread you want by replacing it.
So, that link I used earlier would go from the one above to this:

Code: Select all

z8.invisionfree.com/Wizarding_Realm/index.php?showtopic=19520

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or any other staffer and we'll be happy to help!

ATTENTION ATTENTION!

If you haven't noticed, my loves, the FOA results are up and can be found (in video form) by clicking on over HERE!

IN OTHER NEWS!

Some of you may believe that the Minister of Magic Election sign-ups close today! Well, you WOULD be right, however, due to wurr's meltdown issues this past weekend, we have decided to extend the deadline until Sunday at 11:59 EST. SO! If you want your character all up in those elections, be sure to head on over HERE and sign up! It doesn't have to be ~terribly detailed at this stage, we've still got a bit more campaign development and fun coming along! Your character DOES have to be in clash though, so get on it!

Thank you wurrloves <3

In light of the hiccup with the forum that occurred tonight, we've switched back to the z8 domain as the primary. It seems to behave the best during these issues. Right now, the staff is working on a proposed solution, so expect to see that posted soon!

Somewhere Over the Internet Rainbow...
  • Hey all! So... you remember that whole discussion about the possibility of moving to a new host? Well discussion and debate is closed (we gave a deadline of this past Saturday) and response to the move was heavily POSITIVE! Huzzah! I know most of you are already getting situated over there and that's wonderful. That means a good chunk of the work is already done.

    So what does all of this mean? Well... it means we're moving!

    If you HAVE NOT yet registered on the new site, just know that when you get over there, you will have to go through the sorting process again. THIS IS JUST PROTOCOL. We will not be changing your houses or your rank or anything, but YOU MUST POST A SORTING APP BEFORE YOU CAN BE SORTED --- you can just copy your original sorting app/profile from here.

    Staff will help out in any way we can, and if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask! Lots of site-wide stuff will be coming up soon! Prefects have some fantastically AMAZING events planned for you and staff has got some stuff planned for Clash this term, and all of that will be happening on NEW!WURR!

    NEED A LINK??? HERE!!?
