Welcome to our new home

Recommended Posts

After a week of hard work, we are pleased to welcome you to the brand new Back To The Future: Hill Valley forums.

We’ll get the bad news out of the way now, unfortunately we could not convert the database from the old forum to the new version of Invision Power Board, meaning we had to start from scratch, hence you will need to re-register your account.

We do however want to stress that this move was the right decision to make, with the old forum (Invision 1.3.1) being last officially updated in 2004, and with supportability under MySQL5 and PHP5 patchy at best, it was in everyone’s best interests to switch to a more up-to-date version of the forum software.

Here is the list of current modules that have been installed on the forum:

IP Gallery

IP Downloads

IP Arcade

IP Tracker - Bug reporting tool

IP Shoutbox

Ability to post Video Tags the same was as Image tags

Group Title Permissions*

Auto Warn Level Reduce v1.0.0

Dead Topic Protection 1.0.0

Pips & Team Icons v1.1*

iFont (this has limitations however, not all colours are working at the moment)*

Member Group Colour 2.1.2 (shows group member colour in topic view and profile)*

Signature Permissions (allows us to disable a members signature)*

* Feature does not apply to standard members/may only be available to admins/mods

Member rankings are back, as before, they are based on a users post count, levels are below:

0 - Physicist

20 - Junior Time Traveler

50 - Quantum Physicist

88 - Time Traveler

100 - Docs Assistant

500 - Einstein

1000 - Jennifer Parker

1500 - Verne Brown

2000 - Jules Brown

2500 - Clara Brown

3000 - Marty McFly

5000 - Emmett "Doc" Brown

We are also now pleased to offer subscription packages which will enable you to enhance your forum experience, more information on these packages can be found on the following link: http://www.bttfhillvalley.co.uk/forum/inde...view=getnewpost

Simply enter the link to the video you want to post using the 

[video][/video] tags

For example, entering 


would produce what is shown below.

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350" />
