Welcome to WarSeer Reborn.

We are grateful to the community for all the messages of support and displays of solidarity during the downtime*. We can confirm that this was the result of the site being hacked** and although this was a time of great sorrow – after months of work the site has been rebuilt and has been reborn from the ashes to rise again.

This will be a long thread. Apologies, but a lot needs to be covered.

The Big Changes

Members will notice significant changes on the site. We are sorry to confirm that the great bulk of the attachments and avatars (lost during the previous crash) have indeed gone forever. This is because no backups were created between crashes – something beyond the control of the site staff. Although the site superficially looks the same, due to the number of security issues raised when the site was taken on, it has been entirely rebuilt from scratch. We are pleased to say that we have been able to preserve our existing database of users, together with your thread content. We would advise all users to immediately change their passwords after logging in.

We can also confirm that the site has had a change of ownership. Its new owners are long-time members of WarSeer who are very much invested in seeing the site thrive and grow. Although of course you will still see familiar faces in the Admin /Mod Team.

There are many changes still to be made on the site. We will be unveiling a new WarSeer logo, new forums and various other features over the next few weeks. Our focus was to get the site up and running as quickly as possible for the community to re-engage whilst we reshape WarSeer. We want to propel it back to its position as one of the premier online Gaming and Modelling forums. We hope you will support us in that goal.

To help us do so, if you notice any small glitches or snags such as missing icons please pop a message in the WarSeer New Bug Report Thread (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?416623-WarSeer-New-Bug-Report-Thread) and we will deal with those issues as quickly as possible. Equally, if you have any ideas for the site - please put a message in The Future of WarSeer forum (http://www.warseer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?28-The-Future-of-WarSeer) and we will be pleased to listen.
The site is still in its infancy and suffering from a few teething problems, but with your help we will get these ironed out in the coming weeks. Bearing this in mind, please be patient and just make sure that all errors or glitches are reported to us as soon as possible.

We would also like to reassure members that there is now a robust system of backups in place and we have technical support staff who are monitoring the site daily to smooth its running. Keeping your data and threads secure is our priority along with providing a safe and family-friendly community for people to share thoughts, ideas and make friends.

We have a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/warseer_forum) and a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2220125460/) which you are more than welcome to join. Any site updates or news will be posted across these Social Media sites together with a post in WarSeer News – so you can always remain informed.

There have been significant changes to forum structure and many categories have been moved, altered or amalgamated under new headings. We hope these changes are intuitive and make navigating the forums easier and quicker. If you have any questions just ask in The WarSeer Helpdesk (http://www.warseer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?35-The-WarSeer-Helpdesk) and we will be pleased to direct you. All old threads are still on the site – none have been lost – but as moving so many threads on an individual basis was impossible, some yet have to be moved into their final destination forum. (ie. The Project Logs are currently being divided up into their respective fora and are currently all under the Project Logs main heading). If any of your threads is in the wrong forum please contact us in The WarSeer Helpdesk and we will again be pleased to help.

Searching the Site

You will notice that the search function sometimes does not return many results or sometimes not at all. This does not mean that the content or thread you are looking for is missing but only that the site index will be recompiled over the next few days and weeks and it will then work properly again. Please bear with us on this. This was a necessary step in order to clear our corrupted data.

We now have forums for Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar (http://www.warseer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?202-Warhammer-Age-Of-Sigmar), Warhammer: The Old World (http://www.warseer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?205-Warhammer-The-Old-World) and The Horus Heresy (http://www.warseer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?210-Horus-Heresy), among others, which we hope you enjoy. When posting please remember that this is a family-friendly forum and flaming, trolling, bad language and other such activities will not be tolerated.

Forum Galleries, Icons and Smilies

We are still working on this section of the forums (which finally work properly). If users click on the Gallery link at the top of the forum -it will appear empty and not let you upload images. This will be sorted in the next week. We will post a notification when this has happened.

Likewise, the smilies and forum icons will be restored in the next week. Please note Avatars and Profile Pics should be working fine so get yours uploaded!

Banned members
Previously banned members may contact the site on forums@warseer.com if they wish to be considered for reinstatement and we will be happy to look at your request on an individual basis.

We hope this post answers some of people's questions.

If anyone has any about the topics mentioned in this post, please reply below and we will answer as fully as we can.

Thanks again for all of your support. Here's looking forward to #WarSeerReborn for a long time.

Congratulations on the successful relaunch. Despite everything looking as it always did I know there must be an ungodly amount of work going on behind the scenes.

While it is not my intention to rain on everyone's parade I have a small but important point of critique I want to share, and I figured the earlier the better before any significant damage is done. Without further beating around the bush:

While I have always been in favor of splitting the Warhammer Fantasy forum up, I'm far from happy with the decision of simply dumping WHFB and T9A together in a single forum. If nothing else for the simple reason that the two are, save for superficially similar rules, entirely unrelated, and T9A is quite clearly NOT a GW product. Maybe we can sort this out? I don't want to discriminate against T9A players (in fact I fully support the project) but let's face it, the proper place to discuss T9A is the official T9A forum.

Hi ULF,

We'll look into in in the next week or so :). Thank you for your comments - we are open to the communities thoughts.

WarSeer has a home for Age of Sigmar, Warhammer: The Old World and 9th Age as far as I'm concerned.

Great to see the place back. Shame to have lost its legacy, but I suppose it's off to join the posts from Portent before it.

The upside is: I'm less likely to happen across ten year old threads and start typing out replies before thinking to myself "who even is this guy?"... only to find out it was me, ten years previous!

Top work guys. I can empathise on many levels, my 10 year old site hacked twice in a year (wiping all data, praise be to backups) and rebuilding Advanced Tau Tactica all over again to survive transfer of the database through 10yrs of upgrades.

Good to see Warseer online again, was getting pretty thin for venerable communities of the Warhammer online sphere! :)

I do miss having the username/avatar to the left of the post though, and a line separating signature from post, but those That's a wider vB change AFAIK anyway.
Hopefully not. I assumed the new placing was just a place holder that'd get replaced eventually. If it's not, well... not a fan.

Good to have the site back. You know for the longest time I didn't think I'd ever have any need for news and rumours, but going without this site and it's news and rumours section that collates the rumours of the internet into one convenient location for the last few months has left me feeling genuinely blind. I guess it's one of those things you never really appreciate until it's been taken away.

Good to see the forum back. I admit I had lost hope there for a while.

I hope this layout is only temporary. Having the avatars between posts rather than besides them is a mess.

Very disheartening to see all the project logs gone* :( The new organization has potential at least. The old forum was far too Warhammer-centric IMO.


*Or are they really? I notice I can find my old logs through the links in my sig. So they are still there somewhere! They just can't be find without direct links.
The pictures aren't showing at the moment, but that should be fixable for any log that hosted it's pictures off-site.

The pictures aren't showing at the moment, but that should be fixable for any log that hosted it's pictures off-site.

Hi Zywus,

The logs are all there. Some are a little misplaced at the moment due to a computer crash mid transfer. If you let us know the name of your plog and where it should go here (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?418962-Organising-the-painting-and-modelling-logs), we'll move it back asap :)

The site search engine should be up and running in a few days. Just takes a whlie for it to reindex itself.

Well done for heroically saving all the plogs.

WarSeer has been the target of many attacks over the years from idiots posting sexually graphic and violent images all the way to hacking us to take us down.

Why? Well no doubt we have made many enemies over the last 11 years and some people do it because they can.

And if I read all the drivel which has been written about the site/me which is not positive and taken it to heart - I'd have given up year ago.

100% agreed. WarSeer may have a reputation, but I've always felt the mod policy was firm but fair. It's one of the things that I insisted stay the same when myself and the other owner took over.

When Warseer was down and there was no certainty as to whether it would be back at some point, I had a look at some of the other forums: in part seeking an alternative, in part to see if they had any info on what was happening here. The sheer vitriol in the "What's going on at Warseer" threads didn't exactly make them look appealing as a new home. Again, good to have the old one back instead.

With the gallery again allowing uploads, if you want a back up to your photobuck or other off site hosting please start uploading.

Now I am moving the PLOGs into the correct sub-forums as quick as I can, but I would encourage all returning members to check their older PLOGs and make certain we have placed them in the correct forum...also check on your photos...if they were hosted on WarSeer they unfortunately were destroyed by the hackers, so we would all love it if you could reload them to share with everyone.

Just a thought, but might it be worth 'condensing' the forum somewhat until traffic picks up? The forum seems to be lacking a 'centre' at the moment and the number of sub-forums seems needless given that posting is fairly sporadic.

The project logs forum is still popular but there seems to be several redundant general discussion forums and only a small number of regular posters. Keeping the general GW discussion to one easily identifiable forum might encourage more posters back into the fold.

murgel2006
02-07-2017, 11:21
Personally I don't think it is a centre that is lacking.
To me the problem is that the old structure is gone. The new one does not work for me and I do not enjoy looking for stuff when I do not intuitively know where to look.
Basically I think there should be some effort put into redoing the Forum in such a way that it resembles the structure Warseer had before the attack.

Salvation from the Photobucket woes?

How to Automatically Download Linked Photobucket Images, by Sven Arild Helleland (The Red Terror) (http://blog.kaizen-web.com/php/how-to-automatically-download-linked-photobucket-images/)

@murgel2006: I find the restructuring to be for the better in every way and have been on Warseer since perhaps 2007 thereabouts, but perhaps it's because of the subforums I frequent? It's much easier to have an overlook of subjects.

It seems that Warseer, the largest GW hobby forum around, is the hardest to reach all the way to staff and members with urgent news.

Speaking of the forum structure, the feared Warseer Modquisition does not seem to be herding the threads to their rightful places very actively. For example, the General Wargaming Discussion section, described as being to "discuss the games of manufacturers who don't yet have their own forums" seems to have quite a lot of threads about WH40K 8th edition, which would rather belong to the dedicated GW section.

That is what I meant. There is so much stuff that belongs to the GW part spread around everywhere.
Besides that, the Sections do not have the needed sub folders.
i.e. the 40k Section has "tactics" and "background", where is the News, where is the rules questions? Either it is in a general place or I can not find it.

Because of that I feel many have gone to other forums or even just various facebook groups. Sad really.

Most active members of WarSeer are making decisions on their own on whether or not they intend to move their material to other sites for hosting purposes. As to inactive members, until the Gallery is fully functional there really is no place to save the images to. The issue has been raised by at least one of us, however unless Photobucket does shut it's doors the images will not disappear from those member's accounts. The code to create thumbnails was passed on a week ago.


Have you reported all these topics asking for them to be moved?
Any thread move requests I have received have been moved within 48 hours as I am not on WarSeer every day...although the handful I have received are using completed with 24 hours.

Sincerely,

CB

Thank you, Captain Brown. Just so I know you're aware of it.

This may be the wrong place to bring this up, but is WarSeer likely to support HTTPS? You can get certificates for free fairly trivially now, so its something that should be on the road map at least of any site which has a login systems.
