I've just been tidying the Senate up, a bunch of threads now have GBish prefixes, here's what they mean:

[GBforums] - Threads regarding forum features.

[GBsite] - Threads regarding the website part of GB.

[GBdomain] - Threads that are about GB as a whole.

[GBstore] - Threads about our cafepress store.

Only official and permanent GB threads should have these prefixes.

Threads in the Important Topics section won't have prefixes because, well, because they are already pinned as important topics. :p

Right, I have been thinking a lot about a GB site. Maybe an entire site is too much to handle at the moment, so what I am thinking of right now, is a monthly magazine-type-thing (online of course), features could be:

(no particular order here)

1. Probe Droid - The current GB newsletter, for info about the forums and members.

2. Book review

3. Game review

4. Latest SW news - eg: StarWars.com headlines thingy.

5. SW site of the week - Shine the spotlight on a SW fansite.

6. Information - eg: a SW character bio, or info about a class of ship, etc...

7. Poll - The current Weekly poll kinda died... *cough* Whoops.

8. A fanfic - GB has a few fanfic writers, so why not featue some of their stuff?

9. A comic - I still want it, but I'm relying on someone else to volunteer, lol.

10. links & affiliates.

Any ideas welcome!

Work would not happen for a while, as I'd like to finish the forum theme first. Yes, I know it's turning into a bit of a v4, but it IS coming very slowly. lol

I reordered a few forums.

The Archives category is now Imperial Palace (again), and contains The Archives and the Throne Room (staff forum).

Also, the Articles Haven has been deleted due to emptiness and no time to fill it, and a new forum redirect has been added to Jacen's Philosophers Lounge, a SW roleplaying community! Go to JPL now!

Hey, sorry about the downtime guys,

To cut a long story short, the host screwed up, so I decided that they "have failed me for the last time", and moved.

Galactic Basic is now hosted by http://www.web-mania.com/

Thanks to former forum regular, Lucifer, for pointing me in their direction.

If you spot any errors tell me here or email me ASAP. I already found one error, which was fairly obvious... The word censor went mad and censored every single word, so I had to deactivate it - be careful what you say, as the censor isn't their to clear up after you at the current time.

Once again, welcome back to GB.

:party::cheers: :party:

Okay, folks. Welcome back.

There have been a few changes about, you may have noticed.

The obvious ones are that the "HoloNet News Hub" has become "Real World" and "Quiz Room" has been merged with "Central Spaceport"

More details:

Galactic Senate - replies are no longer on a mod-approval basis.

Central Spaceport - this is now the forum for off-topic chat.

Real World - for serious discussion and debating.

Also, a new rules system has been put in place. They are more a set up guidelines than strict rules like the 10 Commandments they have replaced.

They can be found here: http://www.galacticbasic.net/forum/index.php?act=boardrules or by the "Forum Guidelines" link at the top of every page.

Remember, feedback and comments can go in the Site & Forum Feedback Thread, also in the Galactic Senate.

:)

Basically he told a me to shut up after warning him about flaming. After some disagreement and lack of caringness on his behalf, he was banned. He'll be back in 6 days.
