    Welcome to the New OTBS Forums!

    Welcome everyone to the new OTBS forums!

    If you had an account on the old forum, you'll need to create a new account here. I know, I know...we had over a decade's worth of topics on the old forum. However the forum software was severely outdated and became overran with spam. If I tried to migrate all the data from the old forum, it would have been a Herculean task to filter out all the spam posts. So in addition to other factors, i thought it would just be a good time for a fresh start.

    If you have any questions about your old account or need a link to the old forum just send me a message.

    Right now we're going to start off as a single forum. Once the activity picks up again then we'll start creating additional forums where appropriate. I'm still tinkering with the forum so you still may see a few things out of place or moved around.

    Thanks!
    - Chris

    It's nice to see work still being put in! I love the new website too, can imagine that's going to be much easier to play around with and update! It's a shame losing all the old post stats and topics but all good things must come to an end! as a feature request, I'd love to be able to earn badges purely to boost my ego that little bit more I'm a font of ideas so give me a shout if you'd like any!

    On a sidenote, on the homepage under "Read our Gameography" the link to the Gameography page is broken, redirects straight back to the homepage!

    Otherwise looking lovely so far...

      Glad you made it over here!

      There were literally over 16 years of posts on the old forum, so I'm also sad to see all those topics go but it would have been too big of a task to migrate them over and I wanted to have a fresh start as well. But I'll keep the old form accessible for the foreseeable future as an archive. I always dislike when things just disappear off the Internet!

      As for badges, that's a very good suggestion. I'll look into adding a badge system once the activity in the forum begins to get going a bit again.

      Also thanks for heads up about the Gameography page! I'll get that fixed.

      Thanks!

          Cool forum, & profile pages! I'm a new player, just came here after Onverse shut down, and am loving it! Amazing that you've been here for 16 years??? It would be good if there was a link to this forum & the profile pages on the main game site, because some new players I've met don't seem to be aware of it, and also I am unable to fill out the "about me" section of my profile on the game site. Anyway, great to see a fun, stylish MMORPG online & being maintained in 2018

            I am sorry for what happened to Onverse, hackers are so dull, they had to ruin everything! But anyways, yeah the forums is kind of like the secret society that some socians dont know about hahaha! I am also having problems with editing my "about me" section of my profile on the game site, I really want to update mine :'(

            Hi Chris, Ohgee, Nadia, Harm, DsnyDeb, Eve, Vanisher, Uri(prob missed some out) if you are still around from time to time and others

            It has been so long since I played SocioTown, it was such a great fun social game I have a lot of great memory's and made a lot of greats friends on here.

            Its unfortunate how shockwave and flash are getting less support from browsers

            I hope everyone has been good.

              On a good note its easier to remake the game with other game engines which is more accessible these days and looks like its got better forum.
