The staff here actually tried to upgrade the forum software a few years back. Unfortunately they lost a couple of features that this version had in the process, and on top of that it just looked new and strange ... not to mention very un-1999.

After a great deal of complaining by the forum the staff reverted to the old(/current) version of the forum software.

Personally I'd love to see them try and do the upgrade again sometime, because I'm sure the newer features would be nice. They could avoid the past problems by making sure all the right functionality was enabled from the start, and they could use a custom skin to make it still look like an old EQ forum ... but after the savage complaints everyone gave them I can't really fault the staff for never wanting to even think about upgrading again [You must be logged in to view images.

Yea it suits the purpose just fine, even if a bit clunky and spammy. Definitely not a big deal, just don't see many of these still hanging around. It's been a hellova long run for them through dev/testing/gming working out all the kinks with the game itself, they could use a much needed break from having more shit to do. Like being able to actually play on the new server. Imagine that!

Lame! He was a super cool barb rogue who I grouped with through my 20's on my first toon here. I hope he is reborn in greener pastures...

Nah, I'm just kidding. I might use it as a surname on my Rogue.

Someone had asked what happens to the older versions of the character files, before they are edited by the tool. There was a concern about losing previous toon configs. Valid concern.

If the Create Backups checkbox is checked, and it should be by default, then the toon config files are copied into a backup folder before every change, so they can easily be copied back into the main folder to perform a restore. There is a small section about it in the main post under Backups and Errors. Being able to do a restore of a previous version right from within the tool is a feature that had been requested, just haven't had time to get to it yet.

Another feature request I've received is preventing a toon from having itself added to it's own friend's list. I think right now that's a fairly lower priority change since it doesn't seem to occur very often with most people, but I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the feedback.

Had another request to prevent adding a toon's name to it's own friends list, I think it seems to come up more with couples that have an IP exemption or something similar. I'll probably take a look at adding that in. Also considering adding a Restore feature so that you can very simply revert back to a previous set of friends lists.
