Emergency Changes – Update: Forums up

Sorry about the maintenance earlier today. Shigamado upgraded wordpress and completely screwed everything up because SEGAbits was powered by WP-United, and WP-United is no longer updated.

Here are some issues that will be.
– I’m going to be deleting everyones wordpress logins except the staff.
– You will comment just like you do on any other wordpress blog, which means avatars are powered by gravatar.com and you comment using your email.
– The login box on the side will be disappearing since we can no longer link the forums and blog together.
– Other changes that I haven’t thought of yet.

There will be issues as I continue to fix this, but I just wanted to ask you stay patient. Thanks =)

Oh and regarding the forums.. I’ll try to get those up soon. Hopefully they don’t give me too much trouble. We will probably be changing over to SMF software soon, but that’s not for certain at the moment.

Update: Forums are up.

    Sooo….Gravatar makes everyone a space Invader?

    it gives you a few options to select from for people who don't have avatars set. I figured "8 bit" was most fitting for SEGAbits. I don't know how long we will be using the normal wordpress comment system though. George wants to switch to Disqus.

  8. Testing. Is I a staff?

    Gravatar is easy as hell to set up. I love the hell out of this site. Found it during your Saturn month.
