Maintenance Thread

General Problems

  • If you find an factual error, broken link, broken image on the forum, in pinned threads, on the RP Guide, etc. -- please let us know!
  • Include a link wherever possible -- screenshots can sometimes help, too!
  • Remember, problems and issues with pack information should go to that pack's leaders -- typically via Pack Maintenance
  • If you need something done that isn't explicitly listed below, here is still the place to post about it!

Bug Reports & Technical Issues

If the problem is complicated and involves how the forum behaves or its functionality, please report these in detail to Bug Reports instead. These sorts of problems usually require some back and forth and multiple reports, so a whole thread dedicated to an issue works better!

A good rule of thumb is if it seems like a quick fix (e.g. a broken link), it can go in Maintenance; otherwise (e.g. PMs do don't work!), Bug Reports.

Skin/Layout issues

Does something look weird on a particular skin? Is it hard to distinguish between pack colors, or is some part of the layout rendering improperly? Please let us know 1) which skin you're using, 2) where the error occurs (a screenshot would be great!), and 3) what browser + version you're using. Thank you! Remember, simple things like color fixes can go here, but any functionality-related issues probably need to be in Bug Reports.

Title & Icon Fixes

  • If your title has an error, post here. If you need an icon fixed or updated -- e.g., when your character has earned a mate or loses its mate, or when your character becomes a Luperci and needs their paw icon changed -- post here!
  • Please include the complete account name of all characters needing title/icon updates!
  • Only characters one year of age or older and within the same pack (or two loners) can officially be considered mates.
  • Only characters who had an IC death played out on board territories, or characters who were active for at least one consecutive year, are granted "DEAD" titles upon death.
  • See the Custom Title and Icon for relevant information.
[b]Character:[/b] FULL character account name
[b]Pack:[/b] (if applicable -- e.g., wrong icon or pack)
[b]Rank:[/b] (if applicable -- e.g, misspellings and wrong ranks)
[b]Mate One Name:[/b] Full character name (if applicable)
[b]Mate Two Name:[/b] Full character name (if applicable)

Archive Requests & Thread Revivals

  • IC threads are automatically archived to Dead Topics after 45 days of inactivity.
  • IC threads marked "DND" are still automatically archived after 120 days of inactivity.
  • You can request threads be archived when finished by posting here with a link to the thread.
  • Threads can be requested for revival and "gravedigging" (reinstatement to an active forum from Dead Topics) with a link to the thread and which forum the thread needs to be moved into. Revived threads are automatically marked "DND."
  • We never delete IC threads or profiles/post logs.

Account Username Change

You can initiate username changes yourself via UCP > Your Profile > Edit Profile > Change Username). It will then enter a queue for a staff member to approve.
  • IC account name changes should have some IC reason (e.g. character takes their mate's surname, disowns family, loses their memory, is adopted, etc)

Pack Maintenance

Certain parts of maintenance -- e.g., an update to a pack's website, or a problem with a pack's rank listing on the board -- don't go in this maintenance thread. These pack-related maintenance requests and updates go into individual pack maintenance threads. Here's a handy list:
Can I get this as my Spring Forth title, please? <3

Gordon, I'm hungry!
