    Hello and thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding in the move to this new community. There are a few reasons why we made the switch. Enjin was clunky, slow, expensive and just wasn't keeping up with our community needs in a number of ways. The new system, Xenforo, is hosted on our own system courtesy of Linode. We have a lot more freedom to personalize and centralize things on our site now, instead of using external systems. We have a few new features with the new site, some are still under construction. Some of these features are:

    • a media uploading system via the 'Media' tab in the navbar. Builders and up now have to ability to upload their own WC related pictures to albums and categories. This saves the need to use imgur for our wiki, applications, and site pictures
    • a wiki system completely integrated with the site. The old wiki is still linked in the subnav under 'Wiki'
    • A much smoother and feature rich forum system. Loads faster, better organized, and much easier to navigate
    • trophy system on the forums. Each trophy represents a link on a maesters chain. Get these by posting and contributing and others. See the full list in your user profile'
    • If you donate, you can get a custom usertitle under your forum name in addition to the custom title you get in the game. You also get the gold link trophy

    This was a big move for WesterosCraft. There are going to be some kinks we have to iron out. If you have any issues, comments, or bugs/perm issues to report, please report them here.

    The old site is STILL ACTIVE if you need to grab any information from there. The address is http://testwesteros.enjin.com/forum

    Again, thank you for your patience and I hope this makes our community even better than it already is. Expect more features and events in the future.
