Welcome to the new SoaH City Message Board!

20 posts in this topic

Hey!

As you can see, the forums have drastically changed. Welcome to the new SoaH City Message Board! We have been working on upgrading the forums from IPB3 to IPS4 for a while. IPS4 was released last year for public use, however we decided to wait a little while before upgrading as new forums software by the IPS team usually goes through a number of drastic changes during the first few months after public release. We wanted to avoid that to give SoaH City's members a smooth consistent experience.

A lot has changed. The forums are now more accessible than ever. There's a create button which allows you to quickly create new topics, posts, and status updates. The forums are fully responsive and perfectly adjust to your specific display. The friends system has been removed, however a new followers system has been added which allows you to quickly stay up to date with those who you choose to follow.

The standard SoaH City White theme for IPS4 is currently in development. Until it's ready, the default IPS4 theme will remain in place with some slight customization. Highly requested alternative themes are also in development. Stay tuned! :)

Keep in mind, this is brand new forums software. If you encounter any issues or bugs, please don't hesitate to inform us via the Feedback Box forum so we can address any problems.

The mobile theme looks pretty good, but how can I switch to the desktop theme on my phone?

This is pretty cool, seeing as I just got Windows 10 3 days ago. It fits with the new sleek design of everything. Is there a way to read more on status updates? They seem to cut off after two lines.

The mobile theme is just the desktop theme, but resized. The standard SoaH City White theme will be set at a fixed width, so you'll be able to have a desktop view on mobile.

With this update, you have to click on status updates to see them in full. You can now "like" status updates, use emoticons, and format your text. Status updates have been made a little more complex, but for the better.

I'm not sure. I'd like to finish the standard SoaH City White theme within a few weeks. Hopefully it won't be too long.

The standard SoaH City White theme is up. It's still in development, but development has reached a point where the theme can be used by members. The default IPS4 theme is still available for those to use who are on mobile or prefer a wider display.

I don't have a problem with the new SoaH. I'm pretty much happy with it. I seen most of the different changes of this site from way back when. I'm still a Sonic fan. :char_sonic: I'm liking the new message board. I remember the message being dead for a long time. Glad its back again. I joined a My Little Pony Friendship is Magic message board. This style of it looks very much alike. LOL XD Hi SoaH From Ms. Shadow! :char_shadow:

SoaH's old April 2015 - May 2015 forums layout which was designed by MTPrower has been brought back. There has been a lot of requests for the forums to focus on fan gaming again for quite some time. The general forums and game development forum has always been the most active. The rest were fairly inactive. The inactive forums have been merged into the general forum, along with the game development section being expanded. It was probably the best layout, so it has been brought back.

      I have just added all of SoaH's old signature emoticons back to the forums. They were featured on previous iterations of SoaH's forums. A few members requested them to return a while ago. Click on the emoticons tab and scroll down to characters to use them. They don't really have much purpose, but they could be fun to use

      SoaH City is currently looking for ambitious and driven individuals who have a strong interest in Sonic, SEGA, the community, and video games in general to join our staff team. SoaH City has been around since the 90's and receives thousands of visitors daily for its wide range of content. There are a few positions available. Positions are not paid.
       
      News Reporters:
      We are looking for individuals to post articles on the SoaH City main site covering the latest news on Sonic, SEGA, general gaming, and the community. News reporters will be required to stay up to date with what's going on. Articles should try to entice discussion with readers. News reporters should also post idle Sonic talk pieces when there's a lack of news. Please include a writing sample when applying for this role and any past writing experience you may have.
       
      Reviewers:
      We are looking for individuals to post review articles on the SoaH City main site covering Sonic games, SEGA games, and at times other video games unrelated to Sonic and SEGA. You may review games old or new, however it's important that recently released Sonic games are covered regardless. Review articles should be in-depth. Please include a writing sample when applying for this role and any past writing experience you may have.
       
      Forums Moderators:
      SoaH City's message board launched very recently and requires a solid staff team. Moderating the SoaH City forums requires keeping the forums friendly and calm, breaking up arguments, removing spam, banning trolls, and enforcing the forums rules. It would be ideal to include any past moderating experience you may have when applying for this role.

      Please send all applications via email to webmaster -at- soahcity.com (replacing -at- with @).

      When applying, you must include in your title “SoaH City Staff Position Application” in the subject header, as well as the position you are seeking to fill. You can expect a response shortly after applications have been closed.

      After being in development for some time, SoaH City's new forums are now open to the public. Thank you for patiently waiting. You may log in/register and post.
      Ultimately we decided to start SoaH's new forums using the last working backup of the Sonic Redux/United forums database from the end of 2013. This is entirely SoaH City's new message board, but simply with a head start. Your old Sonic Redux/United accounts from mid November 2013 and before will work here, but be sure to enter your old account information. If you cannot remember your password, you can reset it but you'll need to do so using the email you used on your account from 2013. Otherwise you may contact us at webmaster [at] soahcity.com to assist you. If you were not part of Sonic Redux/United from back then, you can create an account.
      We designed the new SoaH City forums with site's history in mind. The unique names for forums have been brought back, as well as the site's unique features. There's a prominent city theme to the layout. Older SoaH users should feel at home.
      We hope you enjoy the new SoaH City forums!
