Ug clan,

The clan is looking to move away from the current forums after a faithful 17 years of service with our current host. At this time the limited php version that we are locked into due to customization is deprecated to the point that our registration and profile pages are not functional at all.

With the low activity level, we have been faced with the challenge of moving the community as a whole over to a service that has minimal cost (preferably free) and still allow for continued collaboration into the foreseeable future. Our current hosting is paid up for a couple of months and we are unlikely to continue to make use of the service host at the end of that time. We looked at a number of free service options that can help serve our needs. Those were Facebook, Discord, and Slack. The one service out of those three that stuck out at us was Discord as it fits the mold of what we need and has been servicing gaming communities for a number of years with text, image, video and audio communication services.

We have been making use of a Discord channel since the summer of 2016.
We have a little over 70 members on the server at this time and hope that we can get additional members onboard to help us move forward. Existing users will see that I have already started to emulate many of our forum sections into the Discord server. I am now looking at how to preserve any useful historical threads into the discord space. This may be a very manual process but I am very much willing to put the time into saving what we can and discussing any further needs that come up.

Here is a direct invite link to the channel which is also available in my signature.
Shadowclan Discord

For security measures, any new users on the server should PM me Khargug, here on the SC forums to identify your discord user with the orc name you are known as on these forums. This will allow us to properly assign user roles for you on the server. Use '/nick <name>' to assign yourself a recognizable name.

Hate to see it go, but Discord seems like a good choice. Can we keep the color scheme? Wink

Thanks to the folks that have kept it going all along.
