• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Welcome

Welcome to the next iteration of Utopia.

If you've made it this far, thank you for following us with yet another server move. This will be the last one. Utopia is now a shared commodity among several people with strong interests in keeping it alive. Most importantly, the moderators plan to do everything they can to have the forum run by the users. This will be the most democratic version of Utopia yet.

Over the coming days, we'll be figuring out our spiffy new forum software. Please bear with us during this transition period. For the time being, we're just happy to have a place you trogs can start to once again generate your ridiculous memes and other content. I'm sure there will be a learning curve for both the staff and the general users, but we'll eventually get it figured out.

Once things have stabilized a little bit, we'll start sharing our vision for how things will operate around here and who will be responsible. We will also start opening doors to some things that haven't been seen before, including full transparency with how funds from our generous donors are applied. It should be a fun time!

Until then, carry on, and please report any bugs or quirks you see. We promise to add them to the list of "some day" fixes which may or may not ever be addressed.

If someone wants to flex their moderator wings, we should probably separate out most of this thread into something else. My welcome message should probably stand alone without all this test garbage in it :)

Sorry for the tease, but tomorrow we will be releasing the new organizational structure of Utopia, along with the details about how and why we wound up here. Thank you for your patience thus far. Stay tuned.

Technically it's already tomorrow as it is now Saturday in the RTZ (real time zone)
