    Filler00 is undergoing a revamp! For various reasons, I'm no longer able to keep up with the site like I originally planned, so I've decided to scale back. Filler00 will still be an oTCG resource site, but will focus only on resources (scripts, tutorials, etc.) and providing tech support for those resources. Basically this just means that I'm dropping the directory and TCG news - which I haven't been keeping up with anyways. |D

    Also, I'm tired of dealing with WordPress and phpBB. :| Never really liked using them to begin with - not sure why I thought it'd be a good idea to combine them. XD So this revamp also involves switching platforms for both the main site and the forums. As I'm sure you've noticed - the forums are now running on esoTalk ! The forums were mostly being used for EasyTCG tech support anyways, so I felt like esoTalk's setup would better facilitate this usage. (It also just looks a whole lot nicer imo)

    All accounts, topics, and posts have already been carried over. Unfortunately, the transition isn't completely seamless - you will need to reset your password before you can log in again. If anyone has any issues getting back into the forums, feel free to email me: tcg@kablooey.net

    I'm still in the process of moving the main site over from WP to Anchor CMS , tentatively. I still might end up using something else if I can't get Anchor to do what I want - but so far, I'm loving how clean and simple it is compared to WP. *w*

    For now, hope you all enjoy the new forum! <3

    This is late, but it may be worth noting I didn't have to reset my password before logging in! :P

    When you integrated it with WordPress, did you use a plugin? I was always curious!

    I like how clean it is, too. c:

    Ah, maybe it is not actually necessary? |D I just assumed it would be since esoTalk appears to use a different password hashing method. Hrm.

    Yep, I used a plugin. It was very buggy though. On top of that, phpBB code is just so old and cluttered, made me want to rip my eyes out whenever I'd try to go in and fix things. :T

    Glad you're liking the new forum~
