We hope you enjoy the official new forum of the Wars of Liberty mod for Age of Empires III! Visit this thread to get acquainted with the new forum, and let us know if there's anything we can fix. Feel free to dismiss this message at any time by clicking the "X" in the top right corner.
After some administrative changes, we have moved to another new forum, hopefully for good this time! This forum keeps all of the great additions that the last one brought - as well as some new additions. We have preserved many of the popular threads from the old forum, both from team members and average users. We'll try to make sure these posts are returned to the users that made them when they register, so let us know if we miss any of yours!
I decided that I wanted to spice up the forums a little bit, so I added some new BBCodes! They don't show up on the posting page, so here's a quick rundown of each of them (and a couple that were already on here but you may not know about):
If your post is too long or you want to hide a spoiler, you can use a collapsible box to hide a portion of your post. You can use multiple in one post, but both of these BBCodes require titles to differentiate them.
You can now add a tooltip that hovers over text on your post, for example if you want to write out an acronym or explain a link. Write the hover text after the '=' and the text it explains between the tags.
Now I understand all of the [tooltip=Three Letter Acronyms]TLAs[/tooltip] on the forum!
Now I understand all of the TLAs on the forum!
If you'd like to link to a game on steam, you can now do that with the Steam BBCode. Simply write the App ID (the numbers in the game's URL) between the tags. For example, since Age of Empires III's URL is http://store.steampowered.com/app/10545 ... ollection/, its App ID is 105450.
Hey all! A few minor changes have been made to the forums that I wanted to let everyone know about.
In order to help fans of @Pepp's Struggle of Indonesia, we have added Bahasa Indonesia as a language option on our forum in addition to the already-available English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese! Let us know if there are other languages you think we should make available on the forum.
I've always hated the old topic icons that seemed to be randomly selected from 20 images. I have finally decided to replace them with 20 new icons that are higher quality and I think fit a gaming forum much better. I'll update old threads over time to better fit the new design, and feel free to start using the new icons now!
As reported by @Pierre Jean, a previous bug was causing emojis (the ones on mobile keyboards, not the smilies built into the forum) to display much larger than they should be. The bug has been resolved and will show up on the forum over the coming day.
Thanks, and let me know if you find any other issues or think of a feature that should be added!
