View Full Version : Web site update

December 19th, 2005, 12:47
Welcome to the new and updated fantasygrounds.com!

In addition to a better underlying framework, this site contains some things that are of interest to all users, and some that are of special interested to registered Fantasy Grounds users.

Important news are now immediately available to visitors in the banner areathat is visible on the right hand side of the top level home page (that got a slight face lift as well) and the community home page. There is no news archive page anymore, as we felt it wasn't really necessary in addition to the boards. However, important news should now be more accessible.

The community page was given a think over, and it should now contain all the information that is of use to our users who visit the pages regularly. The page is available at www.fantasygrounds.com/community (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/community/) and community.fantasygrounds.com (http://community.fantasygrounds.com). On this page you have important news, boards with new messages, access to your account as well as notices from the game calendar, and links to more detailed controls in all these sections.

The game calendar (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/) is a brand new addition that should start doing what has previously taken place in the Guild House forum, that is, looking for gaming groups, keeping track of game sessions, offline discussion between players involved in a campaign, and for announcements by the GM. We consider this to be in a beta stage, so be aware that some modifications or update operations might be made to it, and we are also open to any feedback about the system.

A major component of the new site are the message boards, which we have updated to a more flexible and robust system. We may be doing some minor updates in the upcoming weeks if any problems with the new setup arise, and would be happy to hear about any problems or ideas you come up with regarding this.

We have opened our own online store, and you are now able to purchase Fantasy Grounds licenses directly off this site. We are also happy to announce that we are now able to offer much requested bundle discounts here, head over to the store (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/) to check it out.

To better focus on any outstanding support issues, the House of Healing board now has a subforum that will contain reports of issues that have been closed, resolved or, in case of easy to duplicate bugs, moved into our internal bug tracking system. We will be moving threads from the main support forum down there from time to time.

I hope you enjoy the new features and apologize in advance for any interruptions that may happen as we get the new server up to speed.
