  • We’re moving forums!

    Hello Episodians!

    Good news - we’re updating our forums! Soon we will be packing up our things here at vBulletin, and moving to a brand new site! We’re super excited and hope you are too!

    “What will happen to my current forum account?”

    Nothing! The plan is to transfer your existing accounts over to the new forum. Potentially your post count and badges will reset, and you may need to update your password, but nothing else should change.

    “What will the new forums look like?”

    We’re glad you asked! They’re pretty, clean, bright, and easier to navigate.

    Behold!




    “What will happen to the current forums?”

    We are cleaning house and starting fresh in the new forums. During the move, we will only be taking a small number of essential posts. If you have a post that you really like or think is important to transfer please comment with the link below or to save it somewhere for your personal use. If you want to save a post you should do so within the next two weeks.

    We’re very sorry in advance for any trouble this causes.

    One more important note… we are using the move as an opportunity to update the rules for the forums in general and to clarify what’s expected and allowed in each of the subforums. We’ll unveil these new rules when the new forums are available.

    Please leave your comments and feedback below!

    Love,

    The Episode Team

    **UPDATE**

    Are you going to move the 1,000,000 Replies thread or ones like that?

    We hear how much you all love the 1,000,000 replies thread, we love it too! Unfortunately, the thread is too large to be moved so we can't take it with us. Additionally, while the thread is impressive with its nearly 50,000 responses, the bulk of them are not related to Episode. We mentioned in the new post that we would be unveiling new rules for the new forums and some of these include stricter guidelines around posts needing to be more directly related to Episode or a specific topic. The bulk of the comments in this thread aren't in keeping with the new rules and so sadly, this thread cannot make the move.

    When can we see the new forums?

    Absolutely. We are opening the new forums up to everyone very soon! You'll be able to post, check out the layout and play around with some of the new features. More details to come soon! Please note - because we are still testing and finalizing the new forums, any accounts or posts that are made during testing may be lost once the site goes live!

    What should we expect during the move?

    The move to the new site should take only a few hours. You may not be able to load the site for a couple hours before it’s fully on its feet, but once that is over, you’ll be able to explore and log into your account.

    Keep an eye out for forum move status updates on @episodecreators.

    Can we start a new account or delete our existing one when the new forums are live?

    Absolutely. If you want a username change or to delete your current account and start over with a new one, that is a option.

    Will be still be able to access the old forums after the move?

    We’re working on away to keep the old forums up for a little while after the move. More information to come before the move!

    **UPDATE**

    We've opened up our test forums! Please check it out here, and leave us some feedback here.

    Thank you!

        Trinady But will this current site that we're on right now still be accessible and will we still be able to view old threads here? Or will you guys close/delete this one when we move to the new forums?

        We'll be adopting the same URL, so as far as we know this site will no longer be available.

        Ngl I'm actually pretty sad about this... I've made a lot of great memories here and the fact that they're all going to be deleted... I'm just trying to wrap my head around this.

          Yes. Only the forums are being moved, the Episode app is remaining the same as always.

        Will there be a delete button for all stories with this new update? Because currently am needing one ASAP

          I’m actually kinda liking this idea...

          why?

          1.) I can make some new threads and help out some people!

          2.) It will be easier for admins to clear out the forums if any unnecessary posts are posted!

          3.) We can start new ideas and all that new ideas.
          4.) Inactive Threads would be removed, which is good to clear space out.
          Trinady Is there gonna be a subforum for Cover Art, Backgrounds, or any artwork topics?
          And also, are you guys gonna keep the Official Background Sharing Thread?

            We're organizing it so our creators have a place to collaborate under the Writer's Community!

            Could you link the thread you're referring to (Official Background Sharing Thread)? I'll double check if it's been added!

        • #14
          The idea is pretty neat, but I just had one of my pitch review threads close, and I just created a new one, and now for this to be gone too...😭 I’d really appreciate it if you guys could save my Pitch It to Me thread since it’s a bit of a bother having to start new ones again and again with not much evidence of my past work.

          Thank you

          Not to mention the 1 million replies thread AND the ranting thread. We have really been working hard to get to that number, and we have a concrete forum fam on the ranting thread as well. It would really be appreciated if these threads were retained.

          Let’s get to 1,000,000 replies: http://forums.episodeinteractive.com...eplys/page3221

          The ranting thread:

          Thank you once again!

            I would recommend 100% to save that thread in a doc (google drive or word doc) so that you can keep with you and repost when the new forums are out! We're sorry for the trouble.

            Currently, it looks like those won't be able to be moved.

            i appreciate this post so much!! i'd also love if those two threads were retained, but i'll do what Trinady has said and copy the ranting thread in a doc and just make a v2 ranting thread just in case
