Howdy people,

 

Just the final notice that in just over a week (1st of February) we will be purging all 1.0 Groups (eg Factions) and Forum Sections and doing the final conversion of remaining 1.0 Forum Groups (eg Leader, XO, Premium).

The following groups have NOT made a 2.0 Group or have not COMPLETED the process to make a 2.0 Group*

  • Black Dragons
  • Blood Angels of Enjin
  • Blood Gorgons
  • Death Corps of Krieg
  • Disciples of Caliban
  • Doom Eagles
  • Emperors Children
  • Grey Knights
  • Iron Warriors
  • Reapers of The Faith
  • Salamanders
  • The Darkeon Brotherhood
  • World Eaters
  • Sons of Medusa
  • Skull Bearers
  • Space Wolves

The following groups have NOT migrated their 1.0 Forum posts or have not COMPLETED the process **

  • Deathwatch
  • Angels Sanguine
  • Imperial Fists
  • Red Scorpions
  • Ice Wolves
  • Night Lords
  • Black Templars
  • Knights of Blood
  • LoTD
  • Thousand Sons
  • Silent Creepers
  • Dark Angels
  • GWRS Blood Bowl League
  • Word Bearers
  • Deathsong
  • Sons of The Fallen

* Usually they have not filed the support ticket asking us to review their faction, or have an error in their application

** Usually they have a partially resolved ticket such as forgetting to tell Staff where old forums go if the old and new forum names do not match, or have not created forums for the old posts

 

The lists above may be incomplete; there was a lot of small letters in multiple places. So check if your 1.0 Faction has fulfilled the process listed below.

 

2.0 Group Migration Process

 

  • Create your group under the 2.0 Faction System
  • File your support ticket (Faction category) alerting Staff to review your application
  • Create sub-forums with the same names as your 1.0 Forums (usually Intro, Social and Private)
    • Can be done while Staff are reviewing your application. Just access GroupCP -> Forum Management to get started
  • Update your ticket to ask Staff to move your 1.0 Threads/Topics into the new forums
    • If you choose to merge one or more old forums into the new forums, or choose different names for the new forums the please note as much in your ticket.

 

On the 1st of February for the USA (2nd for New Zealand) I will conduct the purge. Not making a 2.0 Group is not such a big deal and can be done anytime; the big deal is loosing all your forum posts - once they are gone they are gone, you can loose years of posts due to stupidity or laziness. If your group is on the list smack your leader on the head asap.

Those that make a group and get it approved (because they remembered to make a ticket asking to be approved), but don't negotiate their forum post transfer will find all their posts dumped into the default 2.0 Faction forum; this will result in Introduction, Social and Private 1.0 Threads all being dumped into a single 2.0 Forum. If you want it done cleanly and orderly then get those damn tickets in.

 

Note: Leaders all received an email to their registered address about this weeks ago (and also right now RE this post), and this deadline will have been publicly notified for 6 weeks when it arrives. Staff have tried their best to make people aware of this deadline and fault for failure to deal with it shall rest with the Leaders and XOs of the affected factions.

The Night Lords have a group on 2.0, not sure if that needs a review or something.

Trying to get in touch with people about DKoK.

Night Lords have not transferred their Topics yet. Ariok opened a ticket but as of the time of writing this (I have not checked the tickets since getting home 5 minutes ago) had not created matching Forums to receive them, nor given merge instructions.

Deathsong and Legion of The Damned migrated and OP amended. Cheers guys.

 

There are some open tickets waiting action on the Leaders side, and a few factions who've made their group but not yet opened their ticket.

 

Remember the process from the OP, there is no skipping ahead with it. Staff no longer login regularly on the account that approves Factions now that site testing is over, so if you don't get your ticket in nothing will happen - it says as much on the Faction menu.

Bump - trying to keep this on top. Still a very large list of groups unresponsive or stalled out on their migration. If you play on XBL or PC with any of the guys from these groups give them a poke.

Cru has sent several emails, posted several threads, pestered dozens of people, and has given you nearly 2 months notification. So if your leader hasn't migrated your posts we can only assume your group doesn't want to keep your posts :/

Closing Time - Final Call!

 

Tickets submitted before I begin work will result in stuff being transferred correctly, even if I do the work after the deadline. Tickets submitted after the fact will likely find their stuff gone. At this stage I intend to work on this tomorrow morning (NZST)

Like magic it is done. Groups with 2.0 Factions got their posts moved, groups without got removed. Only exceptions were Grey Knights and Death Corps due to existing and ongoing discussion about them. The number of groups has dropped from 73 to 12, which is a far more manageable number going forward AdminCP-wise (groups here being forum groups not Factions)
