Aright, this one should do (at least for the default theme which I think most of us are using).

Now I remember what's wrong with phpBB. Editing core files to install mods... *grumble*

Star ranks are now partially restored. Launchies and Soldiers now have their one or two stars. However, since rank images are tied to the same thing Adam used to give us all custom titles, it'll take a bit longer to give everyone else their stars. Also, I was only able to find the 1, 2 and 5 star images. So the only other one I even have right now is for admins.

Unless someone else has a better idea, I intend to use 3 stars for regular members with custom titles and save 4 stars for mini-mods if we still have need for those (legacy mini-mods like Kelly and Brent will probably retain their stars).

A. I couldn't get this to work by simply following the instructions. Perhaps with some tinkering it will work, however
B. If it did work, it comes with specific files for the prosilver and subsilver themes. We'd need to build new theme files for any other themes we might install.

As a PHP developer, I am drooling at the thoughts of what BB3 can do over 2. So far I'm extremely happy we're finally in the later 2000s, even though it's making me feel old and grumpy. Now I'm off to go look at my most active threads that you guys are talking about!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee oh front-page birthdays how I missed you.

OHMIGOD THE REAL STONED KERMIT!


:stoned kermit:


Stoned Kermit, I am so so sorry I lost my mind and initially thought the green smiley was you.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I LOVE YOU.


:stoned kermit: :stoned kermit: :stoned kermit: :stoned kermit: :stoned kermit: :stoned kermit:
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

I could have sworn I already replied with happy Stoned Kermit-ness. Maybe I clicked the wrong button. Weird.

Found the 4 star image on wayback. I don't believe the 3 star variant was ever actually used and thus not likely to be found on wayback. Could someone who's better with photoshop make one? The transparent background is throwing me for a loop. It should be 38x12 with a single pixel between each of the 12x12 stars.

The redirect didn't work for me. Pweb was one of my homepage tabs, but now I have to manually enter the address.
It doesn't work for me on my phone (Android), but it's been fine on my computer.
The redirect worked for me at first, then stopped working and I got a redirect loop error:
Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.
After I emptied my browser cache and deleted cookies and it still didn't work, I did what Luet did: copied and pasted the new url and created a new bookmark.

I noticed this too. My phone's bookmark stopped working, but I typed in the url manually and it worked. I think links that pointed to threads on the old board also break.

For example, when I googled Philoticweb.net just now, and clicked on a link I was directed to this very long and very incorrect url: http://philoticweb.net/forumphpBB2/foru ... /index.php

I'd look into it, but I need to go to bed now.

interesting. I get no redirect message at all. Just the 404 error like when pweb crashed. It was alarming, especially since I didn't know we were making the board switch yet.

I read this at first and thought you were saying you had a Google Chromebook and I was going to be very jealous. Two of my friends got them for free back when Google sent them out to testers, and they both love their chromebooks.

You missed me! I don't think I have a rank though. I'm unclear about the difference between 2 and 3 stars, as well.
