As most of you may or may not have noticed, the minion's thread has been split, and one half has been locked. Despite my efforts to merge it back together, and, also, despite the super mega admin effort, it is still broken up.

This is apparently a feature of the website to drastically cut down on the number of topic pages/posts per threads. Perhaps it isn't. Either way, viol8r is doing her best to fix things, so if things seem a bit out of place, don't worry. That's just your mighty admin doing her job. cherry

i'm having problems figuring out how to deal with this...looking on their support forum at the moment. if things have been going weird it's because i'm messing with the settings.
it seems it's not going to hurt the posts we've already made, so if i cant find a way to fix this i'll make a special place to view the locked parts until i find a solution. the one that is sticky will always be the one to continue in.....sorry about all this, guys. i'm doing my best.

I'm going to figure out how we can transfer our board to the new website or something for added security. =)

Yeah, I know. But just for security measures, right?

Forgive me for being so bold, but as a fellow Admin I thought I would offer my advice. You should be able to fix your problem in your settings menu. I can't imagine they would make it impossible to change. If not than I'm sure there is a code you can use to change it. If your truly not happy with your current system than might I recomend proboards. It's the host I use and I'm extremly happy with it. Thank you,
RSP

there a a few configuration menus on my panel, including an auto-crop funtion, but i have it turned off, so it shouldn't be doing that. other than that, i can't find the setting for it. i'm all for tranferring to a different forum, but i'd like to keep our progress here. for some reason on the page to make a back up of my forum it won't let me log in. so i'm stuck.

That's odd. I don't know what other advice I can offer you. Like I said before I'd recomed proboards. ( www.proboards.com ) It's a great forum host. I'll help you however I can.

do you know if there is any way i could move all the progress we've made so far on this board to a proboard? this thing is powered by editboard...pretty cheap it seems. if i knew that when i first started i never would have went with them. but most of the people here are familiar with phpbb and the way it's set up, so i wanted to stay with that type.

Unfortunatly it's impossible to transfer it. We'd simply have to start from scratch. I know it's not nice, but I don't know of any forum that allows you to tranfer like that. I'd be happy to help you set it up if you would like.

ehh...that might piss a lot of people off, seeing as we just had to start over from the omb problems. everyone would have to re-sign up...it would all be such a big mess. if i can get this split topic problem sorted i don't mind sticking with this one. i'm waiting on a reply from the support forum. finally got logged into it right.

well, it's official. i got a reply from the editboard support team, and in this version it's impossible to stop the threads from splitting every 990 posts.
i'll just make a special subforum to dump the old ones in as they split, and i'll be sure to number them. if there's ever something in particular we want to look up, it might be easier this way anyhow.

okay...there is now a subforum in Roleplay Central for the minion memories. as the other r/p threads encounter the same issue, i will make a place for them as well. remember...990 posts and it's splitsville.
