Looks like the migration went fairly smoothly. I notice some problems in the text of some posts, and the avatars need to be re-uploaded by the members here (sorry!), but other than that it looks pretty good.

I also have to re-upload those extra smilies we all know and love, as well as the rank system.:cool:

Enjoy!

Glad you like it.:)

Just a note: seems everyone will need to re-subscribe to all the topics you used to be subscribed to. Also note that when you post you have to check the "subscribe to this topic" box in order to subscribe - you don't autosubscribe like in phpBB forums.

And the titles "Death Smiles 1CC" sort of thing :D

I still have the danmakudreamer.com URL, and it links to the same index page as cave-stg.com. I just thought
the latter was more appropriate for this site. Not sure what I'll do with danmakudreamer.com, suggestions are welcome!

And yes, the ranks will be back. In fact, I'm going to try and install them right now.

Anyone else notice how cool the code looks now? Great for high score threads. Example:

Code: [Select]
1. 999,999,999 - EOJ - ALLI also added a blinking text bb code, perfect for those 2-ALLs everyone is going to get! Example:

999,999,999 - EOJ - [blink]2-ALL[/blink] - Type A

Though I would like to modify it to blink a bit faster.;)

You don't see the 2-ALL blinking in the previous post?? Super weird. Blinks fine for me.
Maybe it's a glitch somewhere in the code.

no, it just looks like the normal white text, but in bold...

also, are you gonna use code tags now in your score threads?

Alright I figured out the blinking problem. It doesn't work in IE. I use firefox, so that's why I could see it.

EOJ, Since CAVE is an acronym (Computer Art Visual Entertainment)
maybe you should upprcase the various sections of the site like:

CAVE-STG
CAVE Arcade
CAVE Shop

etc...

WOA R6 contains only upper case CAVE :D

Alright, the beloved smilies are back, namely:

:righton:

:whyioughtta:

:laugh:

and

:oogle:

The first two look squished in the posting screen's smilie menu, but display fine in the posts on the forum. Not sure how to fix this problem, but I'll look into it.

I added in a table mod last night, it seems to work well as long as you don't have more than one table in a post. Each time you make a new table under another table, the margins seem to be randomly different widths.:oogle:
I have no clue how to fix that.

Anyway, the tables may be useful in the high score threads, at least for games with only one ranking chart, and that's why I added it. I also added a
 code, so for example you can write stuff in the same way as with the CODE tag, but without the CODE tag showing:

           999,999,999 - EOJ - ALL


Check out the Ibara Kuro ~ Black Label high score thread to see an example of a high score ranking using the
 tags.

People seem to want a Poll mod installed, so I'll work on that ASAP. I also need to install a mod that gives people a grace period to edit their posts and not have a "Last edited by..." show.
