    Welcome everyone to the new and improved TWD Zone!

    We thought it was time to celebrate the site's second birthday by improving the site.

    We have removed 50+ sub-forums to make navigation easier, refined the design and kept everything about the first Zone site that you love. We brought over all of our custom-designed smilies and are adding profile badges showing all the groups you belong to: Original Survivor, VIP members, Former Moderators, Staff, etc.

    We have a few last touches but we will work quietly and fast while business runs as usual!

    Please browser your favorite areas, start posting and make yourselves at home here. All of our staff members are happy to help with any questions you have.

    We have tutorials in place for loading avatars posting photos (same as before) and much more. :)

    Love the new site, it's visually more appealing! At first I was confused ~ one minute I was playing a game, collecting candies ~ then the next, my password didn't work. It didn't take long to get acclimated though. Congrats on the 2nd Anniversary Upgrade!:cheer:

    I hope you all love it! I already do

    And yes, for those of you that like darker looks, you CAN change your view to a darker color. Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you see "TWD Zone Light" click it and change to "Dark." (I know that was a popular ask on the old site so I figured I'd throw it out there right away)

    Thanks @darksister, yes it is great to have a choice on devices! :) I forgot to mention that. PLus being able to add all the groups a member is in, since most members belong in several groups.

    Welcome, everyone who was prompted for a password reset!

    The outages will be a rare, not a regular thing here. Look around, feel free to post, upload an avatar, a signature etc. :grouphug:

    I love the new site! Very sharp.

    Just one question. Did we lose the existing posts? I was looking to continue the discussion in some threads I posted in during the weekend and I can't find them.

    Sonia, we have lost nothing at this point, although I know you may not be able to see the old site right now. We did not bring over every post, because there were concerns that some members might feel uncomfortable seeing their old posts here. We do have the ability to bring over everything with a little more time though.

    Thanks, @mia. We wanted it to be a special 2-year birthday gift to members and also have stability since the old site experienced outages in the system which had nothing to do with us, yet affected us.

    Running and modding the site is much easier now with state of the art tools. We can embed more types of video, have better signatures and avatars plus navigate the site easily with fewer and merged boards.

    We knew we had to bring over all of our custom smilies in addition to the great ones Xenforo has.

    No, not at all. We have some great plans for the old site, we will post about later this week and yes, we can bring over more favorite topics if everyone wants those. We wanted to be sensitive to how members might feel and staff had some concerns around it. :)
