Not entirely related to the topic but I was just complaining to my RTC comods about the privacy policy popping up on every page and discovered that only happens for Euros.

If you dig around in that privacy menu you can find a full list of companies they share your info with (and you can stop them doing it, although they try to make it as confusing as possible to do so). So in case you're non-European and want some exclusive intel, here's the full list of companies Zetaboards shares your data with:

I suppose it's not quite as bad as if it were actual forums because they don't get your actual email (unless you're running the game) and most people play a character, but still... maybe it's a good thing we're moving away from them.

I use ublock origin and the warning pops up every time even if I say accept. so I guess it's blocking it anyway
This sig used to be a bunch of quotes about how great I am, but then I realised that that was obvious.

I'm currently trying to understand the ACP on tapatalk (because I made a zetaboards for logical journey, and who knows it could still run), it is very confusing.

The only good thing I think I've discovered about it is if you set everyone into the global moderator group, and then disable all of the moderation powers of it, if I'm reading other stuff correctly, ads will be disabled. (as they apparently do that for all admin and mods even on the free version)
Need to actually check the masks properly and then turn adblock off in my browser and go through with a test account to test.
And they have a feature where I can test the permissions of a user.
While those features might be nice, the not being able to customise the CSS is still a huge turn off. The options for what is available as the alternative are just ugly. (not as ugly as the zetaboards default skin was though)
Javascript customisation appears to require review by them or something.
There was also a chatbox taking up a third of the page which made me have to make a tapatalk groups account to remove. (also needed one of those to test the other options)

Even with a grandfathered board, I'm probably going to look elsewhere to host the game. (should it ever actually happen)
Life is always what it seems.

Good to know. Thanks Cheery. The current game is running on Proboards, so we'll be able to compare after it is over.

Hey so uh officially all the zetaboards servers have been shut down as of yesterday the 27th. If you want to have your board migrated over to tapatalk there was an email they sent out to the original creator of the boards that you're supposed to respond to. But I think you can just send them an email and it might be fine? But this is what the email in question looked like:

Dear ZetaBoards Admins,
Time flies! We are there! The ZetaBoards and Tapatalk conversion project is now 99% successful. We have welcomed 8000+ ZetaBoards forums into the Tapatalk Network. As previously communicated, the ZetaBoards servers are going to be shut down on September 27, 2018. There are are a few things we want you to check just to make sure you and your members are having an easy transition and we don’t leave anyone behind!
1. If your board is not migrated yet, please reply to this email to request for a migration as soon as possible. Don’t worry if you miss this email and would like to request for a migration at a later time. We will grant a grace period of late migrations after 9/27/2018. Keep in mind a late migration is going to take longer to process.
2. If you haven’t had a chance to update your Name Server to Tapatalk Name Servers. You’ll lose the custom domain redirect soon after the ZetaBoards’ servers are shut down.
o Please ensure your website is using the nameservers provided:
Cory.ns.cloudflare.com
Mira.ns.cloudflare.com
*Note: All other nameservers must be removed.
3. We recommend you to go through the migrated forum checklist to settle-in.
4. Tapatalk has been Privacy Shield certified! You and your members’ data are in the safe hands. Learn more here: Tapatalk is Privacy Shield Certified, Guest posting in Tapatalk App, Two Columns View and more…
5. The updated Tapatalk Groups Tutorials are in the support forum and we hope they can be helpful to you. Here is the index to the Tutorial Articles.
Please contact us at support@tapatalk.com for any questions.
Happy Tapatalking!
Regards,
Tapatalk Team


So uh yeah. I don't know if it's worth it to even try to keep any part of them up, but they used to be a resource for some people to borrow past challenges from and people would study FTCs. So it might be helpful to just have it exist still for that alone.
Xalxe: this is xofelf sometimes we call each other names and other times we share emotions

Xof has a new place for you to ask her questions. Do it upppp
