We're still here, Promise

Yes, we're still here! I want to apologize for our prolonged absence. All the staff have been rather busy with school work, and other such activities.  With that said, we do have some very good, exciting news. After several years of delays, setbacks, and breakdowns I've made the executive decision to upgrade Zelda Sages to our new site design / sometime in the next few weeks. Please read the rest of the article to see what exactly this means for you and what kind of content we will be launching with.

We will unfortunately not be launching with all the content I would have liked us to launch with. There are two reasons for this: 1) limited working staff and 2) the need to ensure stability before we start anything really huge. Part of the reason I've chosen to upgrade shortly is because we're running on rather old architecture. That's not entirely a bad thing, everything works, but there's so much more we can provide all of you with newer infrastructure.

So that everyone knows exactly what will happen well in advance, here's how the process will work.

  • We're switching our forum software. All your content and your account will be safe. You won't even need to chance your password!
  • With that said, we're overhauling the ranking system and the TOS. The TOS will be simplified and clearer. Ranks will be altered to better reflect incentives to participate. After the switch, everyone will start with the lowest rank. However, after you log inform the first time, your account will be evaluated based on your past participation and upgraded appropriately. This may take a few hours because of how the system works, but you will be upgraded if you meet the new rank criteria.
  • We will upgrade the forum first. During this time, Zelda Sages account services will be unavailable and the forum will be inaccessible. The Zelda Sages website will remain up and readable, but you won't be able to post comments.
  • After the forum upgrade, we will upgrade the entire website. During this time, ZS will be entirely unavailable. Depending on how smoothly everything is transfered, ZS may be down for up to 10 hours. We need to restructure EVERY page on the site. It really is a huge overhaul.
  • When all is said and done, we will have a new, shiny, more awesome Zelda Sages, with our Skyward Sword content (finally!).
I'm excited to finally get this all out there. It's been a long few years, but we're finally throwing our hat in. Be prepared!

    That all sounds great! I'm excited to see what you all come up with.
