Forum Upgrades [UPDATE]
« on: November 05, 2014, 01:33:18 PM »
Hello Everyone:

The forum migration following the unexpected outage last month caused us to migrate our servers unexpectedly. When that happened, we had issues moving the databases over. This was eventually resolved but it left us with some lingering issues. Of those issues, the most prominent are:

1.) Tapatalk was disabled and couldn't be reinstalled -- this was fixed, Tapatalk is now functional for mobile users.

2.) Custom forum mods like the Like button were disabled and couldn't be reinstalled -- this is sort of a cosmetic thing, I'm working on it slowly but it's low priority.

3.) Forum Attachments and Avatars aren't loading -- the root cause of this is that the forum database was literally carbon copied and cloned on the new site, over a fresh install. So the root directory for the attachments and avatars is still listed as the old site, which I disabled and canceled. This right now is my priority because we have a few people asking if they can load images.

Just a heads up for you all, in case you had questions but didn't know who or where to ask. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I may have just easily resolved the attachments and avatars issue.

Likes are tentatively fixed -- it's a rough draft install that needs to be customised so it doesn't look FUGLY.

Pepakura File Library [LINK] is online. Rules for using it, and what information is required, are located in the forum rules and FAQ [LINK].  File Library is not available for viewing or download by guests, currently.

When you load a file, I request that you include a screenshot of the Pep file and include basic information like the scale, the file source, who ripped it, who unfolded it, etc. If you don't know the information, just put unknown. The reason I ask for this to be included is that an image lets people know what the file looks like without having to download and open it, and the information is just proper crediting of people who put in their hard work to help the community.

So how does one get to upload the files?

I prefer the way it is right now.

Scroll up to the top of the forum index and look under the banner, you should see four links with red dots next to their names. Let me know if you don't see this. The first link is the Pepakura File Library (or click me). Open that up and you'll see categories for Pepakura files and 3D printer files.

When you open that up, you should see categories for headgear, standard Space Marine armour, and Terminator armour. Go into any subcategory. Underneath the list of files should be a couple of options, one of which is "Add a download". I'm an admin so I'm not sure which options you will see, which may be why no one is loading files, heh. Let me know if any of this isn't an option for you, so that I can examine the settings/permissions and possibly figure out what the issue may be. Thank you!

I don't see any of the options you mentioned. Here's the screencap below:


About the Chaos berserker helmet on the download page, here are the info that you asked:

Original model: Games Workshops/Relic Entertainment
Ripped by: Shazmybot
Edited by: Ral Partha
Unfolded by: Ral Partha
Scale: 966.7 (Assembled height = 285 mm)

I think I have the info for the other files. I'll look them up later.

Oh goodness... all right, I'll go and check the permissions and settings. Thanks for letting me know, I should have it straightened out in a few minutes. Do you happen to know which game it came from?

I fixed the permissions for both the Library and the Gallery. I forgot to enable permissions for registered members, like a dummy. Sorry about that, you should now be good to go.

Yes, it's working now. Thanks!

Do you happen to know which game it came from?
Yes, it's from the game Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

Outstanding, thank you!

I've loaded more files. If you get a moment, could you look through and see if any more of those can be identified?

Since some of us do other cosplay's what about an area to show off them? some of them might help give ideas for Warhammer ones. Mostly to show non warhammer ones, like movies, anime, and such?

For the time being, I'm going to say no because that's what the current "rule" (if it can be called as such) is: WH40K. The group is centred around WH40K, and we've only just decided to allow Warhammer Fantasy as well. I am just the webmaster, so what I'll do is I'll ask the other admins and senior people who make things happen, and find out what they think. Then I'll get back to you and let you know what was determined.

Thus far we have this:

I'll be adding standard Space Marine files to the Pep Library today.
