New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

      I've given you Grouchy to play Zouave, so that as a Wing Commander he can in theory command all the cavalry (from memory, wasn't he quite a good cavalry commander in previous campaigns?). I suggest that once someone takes Napoleon, you should suggest to them the use of the cavalry Corps En Masse.

      Gaz,

      I don't know... the whole Right Wing? There's too much responsibility and work involved. What the heck, I'll give it a try.
      I just have to remember one thing: "Always march to the sound of the guns".

      I don't want to be Grouchy! I don't want to be Grouchy!

      Many thanks for this great initiative, Gaz.

            Is d'Erlon and I Corps still availiable? If so that is what I would like to play.

              Zouave...

              Theres nothing to stop the emperor designating you to command the left wing, or the general reserve with himself as a 'wing commander'. Although we are keeping the same orders of battle, how the campaign is directed is up to you and other members.


              Please note everyone...

              Allocated commanders will be listed at the bottom of the first post in this thread, so if you don't see your choice there its free!

              Good luck!

                  Stratego should be the Emperor ( Napoleon ). Or Salinator...

                  Gaz,

                  I would like to make a request. Can I switch places? I would like to play as Ney. He commanded two excellent cavalry divisions ( Piré and Jacquinot ) and you all know I'm a huge cavalry fan.


                  My apologies for the inconvenience.

                    I will volunteer to play a small part (an Allied Corps commander, maybe?), but will take any part needed to facilitate the game.

                      I would like to play a smaller part also. Perhaps an Allied Corps commander. But I'm open to just about anything.

                            I've just checked the other thread and there were (not including myself) 28 commanders, and as of yet in the chance to test their mettle we have just 8! Surely the other 20 are fit for active service?

                            Regardless of which, very well done to those who have already joined the colours. I've begun posting orders of battle, so you can get to know the units under your command.

                            Regards and thanks
