These are not set in stone. Sound off on what you think as I do read every reply.
Crossed off items are completed items
This will hopefully remove many warts in the boards. These changes will be coming in the following few days:
1. IRC Chat - The Southperry IRC FlashChat notice will be removed. The Southperry IRC link in the Navbar will be a dropdown list that will have the Java and Flash utilities so you can pick the one you prefer. Both the Java and Flash clients will feature auto name assignment for registered users (like the Notice currently does now).
Edit by BullDog: The change has already been made here, I've removed the notice. Unfortunately this means that, it's no longer one-click. You'll have to click the link to Flash then click the button on the following page to get it to connect. Fiel: Make sure you include the ENTIRE HREF I put in the navbar when you make your dropdown.
2. World Forums - The World Forums, as you've noticed, have not left, but they still need a few cosmetic changes.The link for "World Forum" will be changed to be plaintext and not a link (ED: Decided against this due to cosmetic reasons). Then all of the links to the server subforums will be replaced with images of each server that link to the server forum. This sounds confusing, and I know it, but I can assure you that these changes are purely cosmetic and will not change the functionality of the World Forums.
3. Dungeon - The Dungeon will be moved from Social boards to the Shady Tree. Because it's moving out of the social boards, this means that posts in the Dungeon will now count toward your post count. Only new posts will count toward your post count; old ones still do not count.
4. Amherst and General Maplestory - Amherst will have the "newbie questions" part of the description removed. General Maplestory will be renamed to "Maplestory Discussion". A new board will be created below Maplestory Discussion called "Maple Q&A". This will separate out discussions and Q&A questions and will not leave people wondering exactly what a "newbie question" is.
5. Marketplace - The link to the Rules & Regulations will be removed. The Sticky in the Announcements board will be moved to the selling board. A new notice will be put in place for the entire Marketplace reminding registered users that they can close their own topics after the transaction is complete. The notice will also link to the rules and regulations for the Marketplace.
6. Extractions - A new prefix for "Extraction Requests" will be added, and a few pointers on asking for Extraction Requests will be added to the sticky.
7. Hacking Accusation - This rule will be extended to include Trolling accusations as well.
