"Arch-Viled" from the ashes!

Tormentor667

Arch-Vile painting by Emortal982We are back - finally! After several weeks of hard work (migrating, reorganizing, updating, improving, nights staying awake, coffee-rage) the Realm667 is back online - better, faster and more beautiful than ever before. Every little aspect of the page has been improved to your visitors' and our administrators' pleasure. The page should work now pretty fine again being updated to secure and latest versions of our CMS (same goes to the components, modules and plugins) but if you find any bugs, just let us know in the forums.

That being said, I want to thank everyone being involved in the migration process, especially those who donated the money to actually realise this. It was quite impressive how fast we got the money together and this proves the strength and solidarity of the whole Doom community. Thanks alot for making this possible boys and girls.

Beyond that, some things on the site and forums might have changed, so please make sure to take a look at each section and also make sure to read the new submission guidelines in the forums. Other than that, we are glad to be back again and we are looking forward to some more years of Doom and activity on this page.

Best regards,
Dan "Tormentor667" Gimmer
and the whole Realm667 staff

Today another milestone of the migration process has been achieved - with a mixed feeling about the results. First of all the bad news: Most of the posts and threads (submissions) are gone, actually all of them except the stickies and announcements. Most of the stuff…

Looking familiar?

Looking familiar?

The last two days we have mainly focussed on the front page and the good news is that the module- and content-placement already works fine systemwise. Same goes to the completely rebuild template for the new Realm667. It's based on the old one but completely rewritten…
