Hello All!

The day we've been talking about for months now is finally here.

As we have said, there will definitely be some changes on the new platform and some things to get used to. And as lots of you have also astutely pointed out, websites are never really "done" since they always change and evolve. We will be rolling out new changes and plugins in the coming days, weeks and even months. So even after we start shifting entirely to the new platform, you will likely notice some changes here and there as we work to fine-tune the site.

Here are just a few of the new features we're completely stoked about:

  • Refine the Activity Feed on your home page like never before. Use the little drop down menu to see all activity, just group activity, forum activity, photos or video activity, updates from just your friends, or create your own custom filtering criteria.
  • Reply to Activity Feed items directly on the feed.
  • Notifications bar at the top of every page so that you can instantly see any new activity related to your content.
  • More control on page layout in blogs. Customize your blogs as you would your own profile. This feature is also coming soon to groups and forums!

To get everyone started, and so Admins, Hosts, and Members can more easily assist each other, we've also installed the chat client for now so that people can more quickly and easily help one another to navigate the site since we can't be on it 24/7 (much as we might like to! :D ).  

Right now we are in the process of adding the tag function to Group discussions, rolling out more customization options to Groups and Forums, and honing the Activity Feed. Social Engine allows us more overall room for customization, but as such that takes a lot of time for us to learn and figure out the details of how to configure what we want, so please bear with us. We fit this in as we are able to between balancing jobs, family, school, and other real life stuff! 

But we promised you all a new site by September 1, and a new site you all shall have. As, such I present to you all the current working version of the site:

Currently, you can use the address tamrielvault4.com to access the new site. We want people to have plenty of time to get used to the setup, some of the different functions, re-upload your photos, check and tweak your content formatting, learn the new profile customization, etc.. For the time being, we will be leaving the Ning site its current URL and you can access the new site at tamrielvault4.com. After a couple weeks, we will switch the Social Engine URL over to tamrielvault.com, the Ning site will become theskyrimblog.com once more until we cancel our Ning subscription. Please be sure to use this time to save your content and photos if you have not already done so!

Please remember that the first time you log into the site you'll need to reset your password using the "Forgot Password" link. If you joined the site after June 28th, you will likely need to re-register.

Newer members: if you have any questions about whether or not your content made it over, please get in touch with an Admin (Todd, Paul, Phil, or myself). 

So now that you know a little bit more about the new site, what are you waiting for?? Go log on!

Try now mate!  Don't forget that any content you have posted since July 1st will not be there.

Just recieved the approval. Thank you so much!

Well, the CSS coding for my profile page may take some time to get use to...

So the  new TamVault is blocked at my school for some reason...I'll access it ASAP tonight. 

That's likely an issue with someof the keywords we have set for the site - I'm trying to find a way to make sure that the site isn't blocked by any firewalls natively 

Admin team, thank you for the move and all the work that's gone towards it 

Also, the links in the archives, and I'm guessing most other places, lead to this site, instead of the new one. So we should all sort through our blogs and see whether the links are correctly linked or not. 

Sadly, the net nazi's at work will not allow me to access the site =' ((

Welp, I'll have to figure out something else to do during my lunch break and pick you guys back up during free time at home.

We'll work on the keywords. It's tough because we want anyone to be able to access us, but we also want Googlers to find us too! Keep checking back!

Now the school firewall says "classified as porn". Did the naked orc picture make a comeback?

*frantically deletes all of the porn from the back end of the site* 


I'm in the same boat as before. I cannot access the new site.

I really hope you find a fix here Todd...
