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!

I'm going to be honest, I loved a lot the TamrielVault "old-style". I know the site on internet are always evolving or changing, will be really cool the new site get something what stands out, something what makes the site unique as TamrielVault "one" was

Do you have to make an account for the new site, or just use the account we currently have?

Hi Miraak,

You only need to make a new account if you registered after 28th June 2016, otherwise head on over and select "forgot password" per Edana's update :

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.

Look forward to seeing another face over there

Whew, I just hopped over there, looks awesome guys.

I've not got the email I used to sign up for this account anymore, so do I have to make a new one?

No! We are able to change passwords for members now, and we can make sure that you have access to your account. 

*Wipes sweat from brow

Thanks for the responce, that's a relief! I may not be active, but I still want to keep my account.

Send me a message with a temporary password and I'll change it for you.

I guess the user accounts were not migrated but they must be newly created, right? At least mine is not working.

Hi Balazs! If you signed up after June 28 then we couldn't migrate your account. We had to create a copy of the content and move it over, but the archive doesn't update after it was moved it over. So if you signed up after that date, you'll just need to create a new account.

But if you signed up before June 28, you'll just need to use the "forgot password" link on the new site and you'll be all set.
