    SWRebellion Network is now SWRebellion Community

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    We are changing our name as it displays on the website headers, page titles, and outbound emails to reflect that we are a non-profit community of gamers, and not a for-profit entity. It is a small but significant change.


    Changes to Account Features (Signup/Login)

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    1. Admin Validation No Longer Required for Account Signup

    One of the biggest complaints was not being able to get access to the site until I approved it at the end of each week. Effective immediately, administrator validation is no longer required at signup. Email validation is still required.  We are also requiring linking and/or providing your Discord username when registering.

     If we start to see a large increase in spambots, we will re-enable administrator validation for new accounts. 

    2. New social integrations/login methods have been added. If you already have an account, you may associate any of these account integrations (after logging in normally) for future login methods. Instead of using a password at our site, you can use "Sign in with ..."

    Account Integration Methods (for login or signup)
    -Google, Microsoft, Discord, Twitch, Spotify, Facebook, Twitter

    Change Log

    • Discord : I have resolved the issues for logging in with Discord and have enabled "Sign up with Discord" as an option. In order to create an account on the website (regardless of what authentication/login method), Discord username is required.
    • Twitch : Users can now sign up or login to SWR using their Twitch account.
    • Spotify : Spotify users can now sign up or login using Spotify.
    • Profile Fields I have added optional profile fields that you can edit after registration for listing social media and gaming such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Steam, Twitch, Spotify, GOG, Origin (EA).
    • Account Validation on Signup: Administrator validation no longer required. Email validation is still required to combat spambots.

    Downloads Now Unlocked for Guest Users

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    Since the launch of our new website, visitors to our site have been unable to download files that we host for Rebellion without first creating an account. This was not my intention, but rather it was a default permissions setting. I have now unlocked downloads to all website visitors, and effective immediately they can be downloaded without creating an account on our website. As it was with our previous website policies, only registered users can upload files for public consumption or post in the forums. Happy gaming!

    Account Deletion Requests

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    While we do not currently offer automated process of deleting your account, if you registered an account with us using Facebook, you may request your account be deleted. Your posted content will be maintained, but your user profile and login will be deleted. This post will be updated when the process changes. For now, please send create a new support request in our Private Support forum  or email privacy[at]swrebellion.com with your request. Please include your current username and email address.

    This was not a feature we were planning to implement, but it is required by various networks which we allow integrated logins/registration, such as Facebook, Microsoft, Google, etc.


    Website Upgrade Milestones

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    Hello everyone! 

    First off, I would like to thank our community members who made this website upgrade possible. Our forum and member database has been successfully migrated, thanks to your generous donations.

    We have completed Milestones 1 and 2 of this Website Upgrade Project, and the next milestone, (Milestone #3) is important as well to bring some familiarity to our community, by having a custom theme designed for the our Invision Community Suite that is closely matching to our website design at SWRebellion.com.  To do this, we need to raise about $365  ($150 for the deposit, $150 for completion, and $65 for logo work).

    I encourage all who can (when you are able) to donate via PayPal to paypal@swrebellion.com. Please make sure to specify in your PayPal contribution in the notes: SWR Website: Milestone 3 and include your member handle/username on the forums/Discord. If you wish your donation to be anonymous, please add *anonymous* in the message and we will list it in our public ledger as an anonymous donation. Only the Executive Team will be able to see the private data.

    If you are curious about how our website upgrade project is organized, I have attempted to export our roadmap from monday.com. Since I am on a free plan, I cannot make the actual roadmap board publicly accessible for viewing, but I am attaching a PDF printout that gives you an idea of what it looks like. 

    Download/view our Roadmap here --> Roadmap.pdf

    Please feel free to post public feedback/questions/comments here :: Public Feedback Forum. If you would like to submit Private Feedback, and start a conversation thread, viewable only by you and our staff, please post here: Private Feedback & Issues


    Discord Integration with New Site

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    New forum posts, replies and submissions of various types will now show up in the #forums channel on discord to alert the community of new content, with a link that will take members directly to the content posted. Please remember out website has moved and most content has already been migrated to https://swrebellion.net/. The old site will be taken offline after certain tasks are complete.

     

    If you have not yet joined our Discord server, sign in or sign up for a forums account and  go to https://swrebellion.net/discord/invite/join/ for automatic Discord integration with your forums account.


    One Website to Host them all...

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    The SWRebellion Network long ago merged the forums from various hosted sites to one community to allow for a single user account to access them all in one place. These communities are still being integrated with our new website platform, but for now, their forums are accessible either from our main forum index, or from the links below:

    We anticipate more to be migrated in the future, including Imperial Assault and Thrawn's Revenge. Thank you for your longtime support of this community and keeping it alive.

    Come chat with us on Discord

    May the Force be with you!


    SWR Forums Migrated

    Stratus
    By Stratus,

    I am very excited to announce the the SWR Forums have been migrated to Invision Community Suite and we are now live! While we have a ways to go to get our entire site migrated to that platform, if you click on the Forums link, or go to (http://forums.swrebellion.com) you will now be redirected to https://swrebellion.net/forums/. Please note that all topics, posts, user accounts and group memberships have also been migrated. We are still working on migrating downloads, cards, and various page content.

    If you had an account over here that you have had trouble getting into, you should be able to sign in over there and reset your password. If your email address has changed, please hop into our Discord channel and ping the @STAFF group for assistance.

    If you happen on a broken link, please DM me on Discord. We're working on a bug that is the result of the database conversion, so rather than clicking on a topic you see in the main forums index page, click on that specific forum it is in, then select the topic and it will open for you. A minor detail, but we hope to get it fixed shortly.

    I am aware of all the spam/bot posts that exist. Going through the slow process of finding and deleting them all. Anyone who wants to assist would gladly appreciate it. Anyone who comes across a non-Guest (a registered user) that is spamming or a bot that became a registered user, please flag that user / report the topic or post in question. This will alert any/all moderators. We can delete all topics by a spammer (other than Guest) all at once. Guests posts have to be deleted manually. The new forums will block and flag future bot registrations and block guest posts.
