Welcome to the new forum! This is something I've been working on for the past two months and I'm excited to finally share it with you.
The biggest benefit of the new forum, and my main reason for making it, is that it's now fully a part of the main site. You no longer
need a separate account to use it. I'm hoping that over time, this will increase forum participation as this particular obstacle
that may have deterred some people from joining is now gone. This also allows for the integration of features between the rest of the site
and the forum, for example to display recently active forum threads on the front page.
tl;dr: Use this page: https://www.girlswithmuscle.com/users/link_o...
There was no way for me to automatically import your old forum posts and link them to your GWM account. While in most cases
people's old forum username matched their main GWM account name, I couldn't just assume that this is always the case.
Your old comments have been imported to the new forum under your forum username, but aren't associated with your
GWM account until you use the above linked page. Once you enter your old forum username and password, you're proving
that you're the owner of that particular forum account, and the site will associate all of those old posts with
your GWM account. At this point they will show up on your profile and you will be able to delete them. (For technical
reasons, posts imported from the old forum can't be edited.)
If you have forgotten your old forum password, the old forum is still up only for the purpose of password recovery here: https://www.girlswithmuscle.com/oldforum. You should do this soon because I'll probably delete the old forum in a month or so.
That's it, enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions. Also, in case the forum update caused bugs across the site
(these might not be limited to just the forum) (inconceivable, I know) please report them here or in the Bug Reports topic.
Amazing work, Chainer! It took me several years to finally sign up on GWM (sorry about that) and would have taken another many years to sign up in the forum too. Bringing everything together was a great and important step to bring more life into the forum and user interaction. Will definitely check it out more often!
While I Appreciate the work, this looks seriously detrimental to the look and usability of the forum. It just looks like a message board from the dark ages of the internet now.
Thankyou for all the work, this new forum is better and simpler
Thank you Chainer
This is amazing. Great work!
Thank you Chainer ......Great job
Great job chained like usual !
I'd suggest a change, that bellow the threads don't show the OP, but the last user to post in the thread.
The new forum is amazing, will see a lot more activity here now that it's more integrated
