The website is dead, long live the website!

In what was actually a reasonably quick turn around, and well in-time for Legion, welcome to the new website.

Gone is the old 6-year old phpBB installation that we upgraded that one time, and the old homepage, and in its place we have built a fully integrated custom system. I hope you like it, if you have any feature requests feel free to make a post in this thread and it might happen. You never know.

Account Management & Armoury Integration

Everything you need to edit can be done on the Edit Profile page.

If you are a raider you will be required to select your main raiding character and role here. This is integral to the raid sign up system which will be explained in more detail prior to raiding launch in Legion.

If you have a YouTube channel or Twitch stream, please fill out these fields - if we have enough people broadcasting on these channels I would love to have a streams page on the site where we can highlight people streaming. This could also aid in recruitment and attracting people to the site, so if you are capable of streaming and think it would be something you would enjoy in Legion, I encourage you to try it out!

Forums & Posting

phpBB is dead, with it the full-editor with all your buttons and fancy bbcode. Anywhere you can comment or make posts now supports markdown. Those of you familiar with reddit should already be set to go. It's not very difficult - you'll pick it up quickly.

You should have access to the forums you had access to previously, if not then just let me know.

The Raiding forum is for archive purposes only, all sign ups will be handled by the raid sign up system now instead.
