Well welcome to the new getMaNGOS website!
It was 2013 when I last performed a big change here at getMaNGOS, that is when I setup the old site that was running on vbulletin. Myself and @antz agreed several months ago that getMaNGOS needed a new site and here it is!
You will notice most of the new site is fully integrated, this is because most of the site is designed by me in the Invision Power Board suite which is the software powering this new site.
Few new things:
- You can hover over any user name and see a popup of their profile without leaving the page.
- The downloads system is part of IPB and not so clunky as on the old site.
- The tracker has been designed in IPB pages by me. @antz wrote some fancy completely custom .sql files and hacked our old tracker data into the new tracker (this took over a week of testing), not to mention poor @antz was under the weather while doing this (hes amazing!).
- Our user base shot up by over 3k, we gave user accounts to all those posts that originally had them but were lost during the 2013 migration.
- We have a new mail system, if your mail bounces you will be warned. If it bounces again you will need to re-verify your email address.
- We are still working on the wiki system we had on the old site, we are also considering other options with the wiki, such as replacing it.
Sadly I have no news on when Rel21 will happen, but keep checking it will be "soon".
That all the news I have for now, please check back as I have encouraged the development team to write up stuff they are working on. We will also post status updates of the new site to this blog.
