OG is trying to raise money to save hundreds of discs. We need to secure a few to start which'll help us get trust from the seller. If you're able to help please check the spreadsheet on google. Thank you!
Things to Batty for you?
You can disable the halloween effects by visiting User Preferences and hitting the "Disable holiday styling" option.
Even though my day to day role here in OG is limited it hasn't stopped us staff from working on new ways to expand behind the scenes.
Recently we launched the much demanded resources center, we're working on a new design for the upcoming XenForo 2.2 release which adds a bunch of mobile related features users will enjoy.
But what about older projects? Well those have been taken down awhile now but were never to stay this way. The main issue with these was the fact they were on random domains or subdomains, this was just a growing expense so we decided to make a true archive under one domain. This includes the old prototopia list which after much debate was turned into a wiki.
With this said, it's time to drive more user input which is why we're now releasing early sneak peaks. The Wiki will be request access only and you will need to have an account here on OG to get access. We'll then create an account with a strong secure...
while we continue to expand Obscure Gamers and reach more people, Patreon has become a popular way for you to support us in our ever reaching quest for preservation. While patreon has been an ideal platform up until this point, due to the recent changes regarding fees on our end, we are now having to pay a significant ammount of money to Patreon in order to use the service. We have found an alternative site that will allow you to continue to support us while still receiving the same great rewards.
Our question to you is this; Would you be happy to switch from Patreon to another service (Ko-Fi) in order to continue to support us, allowing more of your money to go towards our service?
As mentioned early this year we started work on OG merch, while I'm not the main guy here now most prefer me to post these types of threads. I've made a poll with what users will want to buy if we sorted?
As promised a long long time back anybody who done large donations will get the choice of a free mug or shirt etc. Once we've sorted this out clearly.
Please vote as to what you wish! It's multi option.
But before we get there, many have wondered where I've been. I stepped down a few months ago due to none stop abuse/attacks from certain "community" groups plus I have conflict of interest here so I can't be the face of OG now.
OG's not sold, under new managment or no Admin Teams. It'll still run as is minus I'm now only dealing with bills/updates/techy stuff and being forced to communicate with users on Discord as other wise it's dead. The staff have my full support behind the scenes too and are doing an amazing job. I cannot thank you guys enough for the dedication you have in OG.
If you do find issues please post a thread tagging me.
Now, on topic. XenForo 2.2 is coming soon and it's overhauling many outdated features in the script. Sadly for one it removes support for older browsers and the backend changes means we need to pay to renew the theme, or for slightly more we can pay a new look to OG. It does bring a PWA (Progressive Web App) to OG which'll be handy for mobile...
