Hello @Ian G,
As stated before, due to the primitive and inefficient way the old tank journals operated, an automatic transfer was simply not possible. If it was possible, it would have been done rather than having the user do the work. A lot of work has gone into the new system and it was a trade-off that is worth the end result. If a user chose to transfer their old journal, they would need to do the work in order to transfer it. Alternatively they could have started fresh.
You can read about how to solve your image issues here.
Unfortunately due to the servers hard drive failing the other week, some information was lost. This happened to unfortunately include the micro-communities. The server costs a lot of money to run, and upgrading the server to make sure a repeat of the incident does not happen again cost quite a bit of money. It has been fixed and a failure of the main drive will no longer end in data loss. This does mean that the cost of the hosting of the website has gone up. If people would like, they are free to buy gold to help financially support the site. This will give the website better features, faster implementation and more stability.
As the new Tank Journals are the default now (meaning you can no longer create a new journal in the old system) they have been moved to the main navigation menu as the default tank journals. You can access them by clicking on 'Tank Journals' in the main forum navigation (under the logo).
If you do go to the old journals, there is a notice telling you that your are viewing the old journals and it also links you to the new ones. This is located at the top of every page in the old tank journals.
The Reefuge has not gone global. The Reefuge still only has its Australian branch online. No other Reefuge wings have been launched.
The Reefuge is an open community none the less, so users from other countries are still free to participate and have the same rights as Australian users. Information is free and available to anyone who wishes to acquire it.
I would also appreciate if you did not refer to non-Australian members as 'stupid', it is not in the spirit of the community, it does not achieve anything and it also breaks the rules.
If you are getting offers for products in the marketplace please feel free to report it, as it could be spam users sending these requests.
Hello @Ian G,You totally ignore the fact that I DID the work to transfer it & it didn't work after the first 9 or so posts so I wasted my time. I never complained about doing the work!
I complained because on several occasions now I've done exactly as you've requested and it's been a stuff up. TJ's, micro communities, signatures, threads, marketplace etc. and I'm not the only one having these issues obviously.
I am not sure where you are getting this information or idea from, but The Reefuge has never been sold. If you are referring to the April 1st news update about it being sold, that was an April fools joke. The thread went on with users posting about how it was a joke and members were laughing about it. I later posted in the thread confirming it was indeed an April fools joke, regardless of members guessing it.I'm afraid that as much as I like this community, personally I think since you sold it, its gone backwards in terms of framework.
I would not go so far as to call them disasters, there is always a transition period with change. Please do not forget, everything that has been changed since the birth of this website is now preferred by users to the old systems that were in place. Things take time to get use to and things take time to fix.Yes there are improvements but many disasters. Tell me where is the link for average user to find TJ's now? No good quoting the red banner as that reads more about existing users changing their TJ, it does not read as a link to find the new TJ's. How is this better?
I am not sure if you know this or not, I am guessing not as the rest of the community may not either, but, all work regarding functionality and technical work done to this site, is done by me and me alone. Whatever has to be coded that is out of my capabilities is paid for by me, and me alone. This takes a lot of time and effort to do, and contrary to what it may appear, I do have work to do outside of this forum. This means some things (non-reefuge related matters) interfere with the timeline of work for The Reefuge and causes things like putting beta systems out sooner. This is not because I do not wish to make something as bullet-proof as possible before its release, but because I am simply left without a choice to do so.You might want to heed the grumblings in the feedback threads, I'm not alone here :(
Don't get me wrong, this is a superior forum to the alternatives but may I suggest getting things beta tested before setting deadlines as you have done with TJ's, signatures, classifieds, etc, all of which have not worked as they should?
Hello @AspiditesIs there a way we can set the tank journals up so we can see what was most recently updated instead of alphabetically?
This could be an issue with how the iPad sandboxes its so called "file system" between some apps; I get iPad users at work who try to upload files through various websites (and some of these are internationally used with millions of users) but can't actually get to the files because the devices themselves don't allow the web browser to interact with the location that the files are stored. An awful lot of over-engineering needs to be done to get around iOS doing that, and even then it's a painful process for the user. Not so much a website issue as it is a limitation of the device sadly.I am having issues putting saved pics from an iPad to my journal. Thebox comes up but will not let me "choose file" to post. Any ideas?

Hello @TheJordans,FYI: I'm about to have a hissy at the editor
It doesn't seem to be working properly.
I press enter to add an extra space between the text and the pic, and it just takes me back up to the top of the above pic! So I have to go one letter in, press enter, add the first letter again, go back up, delete the random letter that's now left on the above line, and in amongst all of this, it keeps changing the colour of my font!! *doh!* (And annoyingly for anal little me, there are now so many colours to choose from, and the colour I used the other day in my TJs is no longer there .... *crazy fit*
Any help would be MUCHLY appreciated!! (I think it needs a good smack down! Grrrr)
