Greetings-greetings loyal minions.. err... members, yes members.

You may have noticed that a few changes have occurred since you last logged on and that some sections have moved or are missing. These changes have been a long time coming and it is our hope that they streamline the forums as well as provide a platform for discussion of Skaven, Ratkin, Veer-myn and the Ratmen races of any miniatures gaming system out there.

Below is a list of the changes made as well as an overview of the site as it is now:
Changelist
 
Main
Skaven Discussion --> Clan specific sub-forums have been removed, the topics they contained have moved to top-level
Age of Sigmar Discussion --> Moved to Gaming, has become the Fantasy Skirmish Rules Discussion section (see below)
Warhammer Fantasy Discussion --> Section merged with General Wargaming Discussion
General Wargaming Discussion --> Sub-forums removed, topics moved to top-level

Gaming
Rules Discussion --> Has Become the Fantasy Battles Rules Discussion section (see below)
Skaven Tactics --> Merged with Fantasy Battles Rules Discussion
House Rules --> Moved to sub-forum in Fantasy Battles Rules Discussion

As you may have noticed, the revised forum layout combines several game systems into the same forum topics as others. To avoid confusion over what system your thread is about, it'd be very much appreciated if members could tag their threads with the relevant game system. You can tag simply by posting what system (i.e AoS, 8th, 9th, KoW, e.t.c.) in your topic title. As an ongoing process we will be adding tags to certain threads and generally moving some about to fit the new structure.

We of course value your feedback and bug-finding skills so please do comment on what you like/dislike, if you have ideas for better section names or if you can't access sections listed here.

It's been a bit quiet here the past few months so I'd like to thank all of you who read this for your patience and continued support of the site :)

Let us see what the future brings!

-Warlock Matik, on behalf of the Council of XIII (The UnderEmpire's moderator and Admin team)

The Hobby section should be relatively untouched, are you having problems viewing it? :unsure:

Wow! It is so new. You know that smell you get when you flick the pages of a new book?
That's nothing like what I'm smelling right now. All I'm getting is rjward's diseased stink.
Anyway, well done Matik! Nice restructure!

I guess this was always going to be a thing but you have bunched so many games together. The programmer in me thinks it's not right lol

With the way that part of the portal's coded it only scans the last 24 hours IIRC, since it's set to show 9 posts. I can look into extending it to search a larger timeframe but life's keeping me pretty busy at the moment so will have to work on valve time(TM) sorry.
