This Round's Theme, Special Rules & Instructions

Well, people, we have hit summer! Summer is well known to be a time when people go out on vacation. Of course, whenever one goes on vacation, one must stay in someplace! Thus, we will use this to inspire the theme for our next round....

New Forum Design!

19 Apr 2014

As you may have noticed by now, our forum design has changed into a much more modern look. Thanks to some engineer members and our GM's for testing it internally and now the design is available to everyone :D

(Some users may have to wait until the new design can be viewed. You may also want to clear your browsers cookies/cache if you still can't see it)


The overall design is Metro inspired and gives our forum a fluid width and auto adjusts the layout depending on your resolution (minimum is 1024x768)


It's still in Beta and layout bugs and design errors may occur across different browsers and operating systems (especially on Mac). Help us find these bugs and errors so I can fix them immediately. You may post it on our Reports section.



So here are the major changes aside from the overall look of our site:


  • New header

The header has been updated to provide a background image and can be scrolled over by the main content area. (it's one of those cool effects nowadays)

The set of buttons and links at the top has been re-arranged. The logout link has been removed and transferred under the Profile drop down menu.

The primary site navigation menu has been moved below the header to allow more space in case we needed more links and prevent the layout from breaking up.

YouTube button link has been added.




  • Forum category list

Forum row highlighting and updated icons. You can now click the forum row as if you were clicking on a large button, optimized for touchscreen monitors and tablets.

I can't seem to integrate Minecraft icons into the overall look of the layout without making it feel out-of-place so I defaulted it to Metro-inspired icon sets.




  • Topic list

The topic list now features a more relaxed layout. Clicking on the Preview button is still the same aside from the profile pictures which are now rounded :)



  • Topic view

This is probably the most noticeable change aside from the overall look. As you can see, the posts are now arranged horizontally. The poster's information are placed above the post and the main post content are placed below it. This gives more space and focus to the actual post itself. Images should now look larger than before.

One thing that has been removed is the Survival Server player stats. It doesn't fit in to the layout and I consider it as not so important. You can still view your stats by going to your Profile and on private conversations.



  • Updated Server Stats page

Our server stats page has been updated with interactive graphs that provides in depth information about our server's performance.


  • Group icons

As you may have noticed, the group icons has been also updated. Thanks to PKMNtrainerDia for doing it! I was surprised, he also made my new avatar picture :D The group icons will still change so it can better match our new design. Stay tuned!


  • Profile Covers

Custom background/wallpaper for Donator profiles are no longer supported. Instead, they have been converted into profile covers similar to Facebook Timeline covers ;)


Anyway, that seems to be all of it. UWBS design will be changed soon too, and remember that our current layout is still in beta. Please do report all bugs and errors that you may find and please make suggestions so that we can improve it further.




Next week: Something big is coming...

GM HeatChill -> GM DocSpectre

09 Apr 2014

This announcement is just to confirm that GM HeatChill has shifted his GM powers to a new account - DocSpectre.


DocSpectre is GM HeatChill so do not be surprised to see an unknown GM account logging into the server.


Thanks. :)
