Hey guys, we just successfuly completed a forum software upgrade to our website. You can expect a lot of new features and bug fixes to happen in the next few days but we could always use your help figuring out what's working and what's not so if you find a bug please post it below, or report it to us through other means of communication such as skype or forum PMs.

One more thing to keep in mind is that we're staying with the default forum skin for a couple of weeks as we decide on a new forum skin. So for now, everything you see can be considered a work in progress as we've just finished installing the new software upgrade.

Hello everyone, Trace here bringing you more information regarding the current forum changes that have happened and also give you a few things to look forward to in the future.

For starters, we're taking another look at the way the forums are structured in order to make them easier to navigate. Our primary goal is to make the forums feel more compact and easy to use, so we are starting by removing or merging inactive sub-forums for now. Keep in mind you mind notice more minor forum changes in the next few days, but rest assured all posts and threads have been archived and nothing is lost so your post counts and threads are safe. Once again, if there's a thread you'd like to be restored you can contact me through forum PM.
If you'd like to see a list of all the removed sub-forums you can view them below:




<*'>Wonderland's Library | Archives and Visual Strategy Media
<*'>Academy Homeroom | Secret Club Forums
<*'>Teacher's Lounge
<*'>The Source Tower | Recruitment and Roster (Includes Sword Only variant)
<*'>The Matchmaker (Includes Sword Only variant)
<*'>eSper Station | Fanart and Story Writing Section
<*'>channelS5 News Section (Merged with S4 Source Frontpage News)
<*'>League of Legends
<*'>The entire S4Project Category has also been removed.



So with that out of the way, I'm also going to give a few spoilers on what's to come. You can expect a forum software upgrade in the very near future, which will help fix certain issues or allow us to add more functionality. I'm afraid I can't give you any more precise information but it's something that's been in the works for a while now. Moreover, you can expect more minor forum issues to be dealt with -- such as the ranking system stopping after a certain point, etc.

Finally, this is where you come in. We'd like to hear your thoughts on these forum changes, how would you like to see our forum shape up in the future? Furthermore, you're more than welcome to give us a few suggestions or ideas we can work with. Make your voice be heard and help us improve your favorite S4 League fan-site!

APRILS FOOLS

Hello eSpers! Today a new skill was announced for S4 League that is guaranteed to bring the spy out of you. Apparently this skill will let you conceal yourself as a member of the opposite team for a certain amount of time, allowing you to blend in with the enemy until an opportunity presents itself for you to attack.

We're not exactly sure on the mechanics of Disguise yet, but we're really excited to see how it works out as the newest skill addition in S4 League. Remember, trust no one and get those 360 Spy Checks going because you can never be sure who's an enemy and who's an ally anymore.
