[SIZE=6][B]I Am Leaving But This Is Not Goodbye[/B][/SIZE] After more than 11 years of being the admin and owner of this here community I have decided that it is time to fly the virtual nest [I](wait, do ducks have nests?)[/I] and hand control over to someone else who can really make the :duck: fly! [I](harhar, me do pun)[/I] It’s been an amazing amount of time and a hell of an experience being the main muppet of this place and I will miss some of the behind the scenes work. And it still amazes me that I have watched a number of members here grow up and mature, going from being punk kids who hate school to becoming adults and moving on with their lives. Some of you have even confided in me how finding this place benefited you in ways I could never imagine which was extremely humbling. I have also met some of you incredible in real life. Getting to travel with that crazy lot down to Namco Bandai Partners in London was superb. Every one of them was a real character and a barrel of laughs. Hopefully, we’ll get to meet up some time again guys!! :bigsmile: Meeting people for real is generally a rare thing with online communities, and even though the vast majority of those I have interacted with on here have been only through text or chat in a game, I do consider a number of them friends who I would very much like to meet. It may sound weird, but those times where we all jumped on to play a few hours of whatever game gave the same feeling and sense of enjoyment as meeting up with my mates for a drink at the pub. In the sense that the banter was flowing and so were plenty of jokes. And of course a good amount of these times had alcohol present! :D From humble beginnings to becoming a known name in certain gaming circles, and in such, getting noticed by the people behind them. Resulting in being able to get to know and meet Mr Nadal and all of Eden Games, Lee ‘Pizza & Games’ Kirton formerly of Atari and now Namco Bandai Partners, and having back and forth conversations with sterling community managers such as Soufyane and Natchai at Ubisoft. There are probably more but my stupid memory cannot remember who they are. :confused: Last but not least I come to all of you guys, the members. Whether you are someone who shares their excellent in-game or real life images and video, a modder putting out good stuff for the community to use with their game, or just simply a chatty sod. Know that I have enjoyed seeing all sorts here. :tup: I wish I could say more and be more epic with this but you all know how terrible I am at this sort of thing. So, I will say my goodbyes but rest assured I am not leaving, I will still be around, but not in an official capacity, and in a funny way this will actually not only help me, but also help this place as the new boss can surely give it what I wasn’t able to. I got a bit of time as one of the better members to show the new boss around and give them the wealth of my experience (oh boy) before I become one of you scum. And so with that, all I have left to say is... smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast! :crazy: [SIZE=5]Cheers![/SIZE] [SIZE=6]Diablo[/SIZE] (former community Admin & Owner) So.. uh what? [B]Q: Who is the new owner of turboduck on tduck?[/B] [I]A: The new owner is now in control and uses the @Diablo account.[/I] [B]Q: Who is Diablo now then?[/B] [I]A: Diablo, as they used to be, is now under the @insaneone username.[/I] [B]Q: Will Diablo still be around?[/B] [I]A: Of course they will, but as @insaneone as this is who they are now (and has always been! :cheeky:).[/I] [B]Q: Why did Diablo leave?[/B] [I]A: They haven't left, they are now known as @insaneone and so is still here. As much as the original Diablo loved this place, they knew it was time to pass it on so that the :duck:'s future could be preserved. :cool:[/I]
New Posts & Recent Posts changes Hi there everyone, we have just made some changes that you may recognise as operating in the same way as to how the old setup worked, whereby the main forums and the Mod Shop had their own activity able to view. We know that a number of you liked being able to do this and so it was one of the first things we wanted to implement. Unfortunately it become apparent this wasn't going to be easy and so the tabbed blocks in these sections were put into effect fairly swiftly once we knew how to create them. (that was fun! :eek:) Those however, are limited to only 10 posts and so the need to get something like we had before has been a goal of ours, and I am happy to say we have achieved it. It isn't as seamless as we would like but it does allow our visitors to see the activity of the separate sections such as the main forums and each of the TDU and TDU2 Mod Shops. (others can be added as required too) On the main forum you can see the typical links for: Recent Posts and New Posts. When these are used they will show all activity from the main forums. With the Mod Shops. You enter those by using the "Mods" navigation tab and then, depending on your devices screen width, you will see links for TDU Mods: Recent Posts, TDU Mods: New Posts, TDU2 Mods: Recent Posts etc either under the main navigation tab or in the canvas menu that can be activated with the Menu option. Should also mention that the "Mods" navigation tab has had its menu removed as the new links wouldn't place in a way that made sense. Like I said, it is not as good as we would like. :( For starters, there is no indication of what section activity you are looking at except for the thread titles and the forums they show as being in, and some of the links don't keep the custom search criteria, meaning if you click on any of them you will revert back to the default. We are working on this and hope to be able to improve its functionality in time. Cheers! -- tduck team :duck:
[headline]tduck v3 - Xenforo[/headline] Many many moons ago, we started life as Test Drive Unlimited Central and not before long did we realise that name is waaaaaaaaaaayyy tttoooooo long and so it was shortened to TDU Central, which then became even shorter to TDUC where the pronunciation of Tee Dee Yoo See became shorter still to tduck. And this is where we are at today. Over the time since we first began from day one with vBulletin 3, we migrated to vBulletin 4 which was for better or worse, you decide, the next version of our community and now, a lot longer than I wanted it to be, we reach a new chapter in our history by hitting version 3 by switching over to Xenforo. This modern forum will take a bit of getting used to but it shouldn't take too long to get to grips with. It's fairly user-friendly in most cases but there will be some cases where things are different and as much as I would like to repeat what gone before, the likelihood of that happening is very remote as I am too much of an idiot to mad scientist stuff together like I could before. I'll give it a go when I can though! :) Please feel free to comment and post about issues or any other strange gremlins and or queries you may have and I will do my best to answer and sort them. There will be a number of these at the start, as even though I have went through the settings and tested certain things, it's a given there will be things I have missed. So please, if you come across something, tell me about it. Not to mention the huge amount of styling still needing done, along with user personalising and extra additional things like allowing Modders and such to have more edit time again. Many thanks! Diablo
