Zetaboards takeover by Tapatalk

Posted by Elven Spellmaker (Administrator) at 23 Jul 2018, 10:28 AM. 5 comments

Hey all,

As you may have noticed over the last few years, Zetaboards hasn't been very active in maintaining the board, adding features, or fixing problems.
You may also notice it's one of the few sites on the Internet to still use unencrypted http for the website.

Unfortunately as is inevitable with a lot of businesses, Zetaboards isn't viable to continue providing the forum service, and the changes required to make these forums GDPR compliant has also been deemed too much work.

However, Zetaboards has been acquired by Tapatalk and the forum will be converted over to a Tapatalk forum shortly.

This will change the look of the site (but brings in SSL, mobile support, and apps if you so choose) and we're really not quite sure how many things will be available on the other side, however we expect themes to be broken completely.

There's also the possibility that we won't be able to have custom emotes, any custom CSS or JS on the board (which I'm sure would please Jack Campin haha).

There are some features from the Tapatalk Premium which will be grandfathered in for those on Zetaboards boards, but whether they're time-limited or not and precisely which features, we're just not sure.

We hope uploaded content will be transferred, but again we can't be sure. It'd be a real shame if lots of the content available here is broken after the move, but at this current time I can't find a way to even preview how the forum looks with Tapatalk, and the staff at Zetaboards seem insistent we can't have a data dump of the site.

For more info, please see: http://support.zathyus.com/topic/7021172/1/

We're not quite sure the full extent of the changes, but see you on the other side!

Thanks, and hopefully the transition won't be too painful! :)

Broken Search Feature

Posted by Elven Spellmaker (Administrator) at 31 Aug 2016, 11:22 AM. 8 comments

Hey all, :hi:

I've just seen a few Facebook posts and received a few PMs and I thought I'd investigate the the search not working problem.
It turns out the forum providers are upgrading servers and they say it's to do with them migrating all forums to new hardware.

They are currently in the process of rebuilding the indexes used for searching and without the indexes there is no searching (seriously it would put a lot of strain on their architecture to do normal database searches). Obviously the bigger the forum the longer the indexing will take.


Until the indexing is complete there is nothing I can do, if this continues for some time, please let me know and I'll open a ticket about this. :shakefist:

Sorry for the inconvenience, but this is totally out of my control,

Jack (Elven Spellmaker) :cowbellhit:

2016 US Ocarina Festival Kickstarter

Posted by Ocarinadiva (Business) at 20 Jul 2016, 05:36 PM. 2 comments


Hey Everyone,

I launched my ocarina festival Kickstarter today and I'd appreciate it if you would consider backing it and sharing it with your friends and family too. The goal is to not only cover some costs of the festival, but also use Kickstarter to promote it. Even if you're short on money, pledging $1 will get you all of the updates and hopefully later you'll consider increasing your pledge.

Thanks so much!
