Kanzenshuu has been live for 10 ten days now, and finally, everything is integrated as we had originally envisioned it. While it wasn’t entirely easy, we hope it is worth it to all of you. First and foremost, the forum from back at Daizenshuu EX has been ported over in full (mega-props to lost_in_thought, and in all seriousness, if you have as unhealthy an attachment to this community as we and some other folks do, a little present for him wouldn’t be out of line). However, we have somewhat cleaned house a bit and there have been a few changes you may want to note:
- The “New Section Previews” and “Staff Help Requests” sub-forums have been combined. They were pretty much the same thing, anyway.
- “Introductions” and “Ask” archives have been… well, archived. They don’t serve much of a purpose anymore.
- External links are back to opening in a new tab or window.
- The logo in the upper-left of the forum goes back to the main forum page, and a new link has been added to the right under the text header to lead you back to this main website.
- Avatars can now be 100×100 pixels in size. You’re welcome.
- The forum rules have been condensed a little bit, but you know how we roll — be awesome, and type well. That’s all it takes!
In addition, the user panel (seen to your left) is now fully operational on the main website, allowing users to login anywhere on the site. If you were previously a registered user on Daizenshuu EX, your same username and password will work properly here as well. All of your original user information and settings have been imported, along with all of your private messages. Logging in will also allow you to comment on any news posts that are less than 21 days old. All podcast news posts will be locked, and can instead be thoroughly discussed in their respective topics found in the Podcast sub-section of the forum.
As with any integration and import of this size, there are bound to be some bugs and glitches we didn’t foresee. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, or a bug of some kind, please be sure to let us know using the site’s main contact form. I know some of you have already used the contact form to inquire when the forums would be back online, but we decided this would be the easiest way to respond.
So spread the word. The forums are back!
😀 Everything’s shaping up so well. It’s just so beautiful. 😉
I was really heartbroken over the loss of Daizex and Kanzentai, but this merge is just so beautiful! Looks good and there’s so much well organized information. Awesome job guys! 😀
FIRS- Aww… 🙁
Awesome! Works like a charm!
Absolutely love it! Thanks, guys.
Awesome, awesome job guys! I really love the full integration – so cool to see my Avatar in the User control panel on the main page! This is sweet!
These new updates are wonderful! I really like the 100×100 avatar feature and being able to comment on news articles using our forum accounts is great!
Gah, I’m so excited now! The site looks wonderful, guys!
It’s so awesome!!
I really love the new site guys. The forums are back, YAY!
So excited! 😀
Thanks for all of your hard work!
I think I’m going to be visiting the site and forum even more now. 🙂
My life is complete.
What a nice birthday present. Thanks guys! 😆
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: This is absolutely fantastic and you guys have done such a wonderful job. The new site is amazing and I thank you so much for all the hard work you guys put into this. This is what being a community is all about. Long live Kanzenshuu!
Good job you guys!
Looking good guys! Awesome work.
Great job. Looks good and I am glad that the old forums still look the same: Simplistic!
But I can’t find the button that leads me to the forum.
“The logo in the upper-left goes back to the main forum page” That doesn’t work for me. Or which logo do you mean?
Hmm, from the talk on the podcast it seemed like you guys were going to embed the forum into site. WordPress allows that, but I suppose you’d run into problems trying to move over the old posts to MyBB or whatever forum software you’d embed.
Yep, glad to see the site’s back up, now merged, with extras! 😀
Thanks guys! 😀
Congratulations on the re-launched website guys, it’s great to see you’re all still going strong after all these years. Love the new layout and articles, and I’m looking forward to seeing more.
So much love, you guys. <3 Thanks for all your hard work and dedication!
Two of my faves working together. Good stuff.
