Welcome to the new Dragonmount!


Jason Denzel

It's been a long time in the making, but the new Dragonmount.com website is finally here. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to make this site possible.

 

You'll find that all your previous Dragonmount username and passwords still work, and that we've preserved all the posts from our old forums.

 

Please take a look around and enjoy the new layout. But keep in mind that this is an all new site and we're still working out some of the bugs and other oddities.

 

In the near future, we'll have links to our old forums in case you want to grab some of your recent posts and transfer them over to the new site.

I can only see threads I've created, and can't create new ones.

We can't change it - they need to change our permissions. Something must have gone wrong in the conversion process.

What Lambada said. You should be able to PM and post on threads you created but that's it. They are still tweaking everything and it will probably take a while.

 

I wonder if we can add some color to this... It's kind of brown >.>

Ok, now that DM 8 is up (and looks amazing by the way) I think it's about time you got an early edition of ToM and reviewed it for us Jason. The idea that I'm going to read the Prologue before I read Jason's review scares me. I don't know what to think! TELL ME WHAT TO THINK JASON!

Hi Matt: Unfortunately we could not restore the old Gallery photos. The reason is because those old gallery pics were associated with one set of logins that was different than the usernames in the forums. So while we COULD bring it in, none of the images would be properly associated with their owners.

 

Sorry!

i was locked out until this morning. the administrator was not accepting new accounts, and for some reason unless you have an account and log in with a password, you can't post. anywhere.

 

i can't find anything. the very simple and intuitive organization that used to exist is gone. i see most of the last month's posts never happened. maybe that's a good thing, i really don't know. it's an annoyance among many.

 

i'm old. like a lot of people who got hooked on this series when it began. it is difficult and stressful for some of us old people to adapt to tech changes like this, especially when they seem to be disimprovements. i have to deal with buggy "upgrades" at work, but they pay me for it. i hate having to deal with stuff like this on my own time.

 

i feel like i went to sleep on one floor of the tower, and woke up in another, with my door opening to a stone wall.

 

anyway, general whining and sadness at this dimensional shift. hope i didn't violate any of the many rules of your sign on agreement. thanks for listening.

Hi Cindy,

 

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you're having a negative experience so far. Like you, I can get frustrated with new things that don't work as I want them to. So your input is perfectly valid. Feel free to email us a webmaster@dragonmount.com with some specific parts of the site that aren't working for you.

 

What specifically is not working as well? It is our intention that you need to be logged in in order to post. It cuts down on the amount of spam.

 

Thanks!

Jason

hi jason,

 

thanks for your time and your response.

 

in general - - just. . . horrors. . . .

 

in specificity - - the worst for my brain is that the organization is gone - everything is mixed up and hard to find. before, i had no problem following the newest topic on top of the page, newest post generally at the bottom, clear, large, easily understood headings. navigable would be the word for it, i think.

 

now, i have to search among columns and frames and bits of extraneous material, and my vision, and attention span, aren't up to it. and most of what i was interested in seems to have disappeared, anyway.

 

and with the sign-in, everything seems tied into the social networking site, which is just. . . again. . . horrors. . . too chatty for me, too fast for me, and too young for me.

 

and, shamefully, i did, very occasionally, post from work, which i clearly can't do now. there's still cheezburger, praise the internet, but sometimes you need more thn funny cats to get through the day.

 

i'm sorry there was spam, but now there's even more ads, which i find harder to ignore.

 

anyway, as i said, just whining and mourning the death of something i quite liked, and i don't expect any changes. i know my demographic, moneyful as it is, is not a primary marketing target.

 

thanks again for listening.

 

:((

 

(also, there needs to be more than smiley faces in this world, IMO)

I mean come on the new site just went live give them a little time to work things out. you're not paying for this service this is all on them so i say send problems you find to Jason and give them time. I think the new site is great thanks for all the hard work guys

@ jwillis7 or anyone else who thought i was saying or thinking that jason or anyone else working on this fan website (i thought it was a bit tor-y as well, but either way) was a bad person or was doing bad things - i apologize. that's not what i meant.

 

what i meant was that i really liked it the way it was, i really didn't want it to change, i really don't like it the way it is, i can't understand it or find my way around, and even when all the bugs are debugged i will still not like it as much as i liked it before (though the podcasts would help, i think).

 

oh, and i'd be perfectly willing to pay for it to be back the way it was. though, seriously, if tor's not supporting this marketing gem, they should be. this place sells all kinds of books and merchandise and tickets, and not just WOT.

 

i do know that my own personal sadness on the passing of a peaceful, simple, slow and fast enough, age-friendly website has nothing to do with patience. i get that most of the rest of you like it, and that the greater good was served. but i'm not vulcan.

 

i do not mean to demean in any way, shape or form, in thought, word or deed, the people who built the place, or the work they do and have done. i am only expressing a sad.

 

maybe there are other lost souls wandering around, unable to figure out how to do anything, like i was yesterday, or unwilling to join the membership, to whom this may give hope? more likely, it's just pointless maundering.

 

but jason, i love your work, and i know you are doing your best for far less than you're worth.

 

just. . . change bad. . . always.

 

:(
