OtLand New Staff Members

With the Staff recruitment closing 2 weeks ago, we have reviewed all applications and made final determinations based on a wider set of criteria. The most important factor we reviewed is whether the contribution history (posts, activity) fits the desired role. That means the quality (not quantity) of your posts/profile posts and how often you are available (we don't require spending hours a day but logging in once a month is not enough).

All members that have been unsuccessful at this stage...
 

OtLand Re-opening Staff Recruitment Board

It's been a while since we were last looking for new moderators. We currently have 11 members of our Staff (Moderators and Administrators) and over 60% still visit the forum every single day! For the curious, the last time we were looking for new staff members was in 2011.

While some users may think that moderators are inactive, that is very far from the truth. We handle almost all reports within 24 hours...
 

OtLand Upgrade to XenForo 2.1

Hello,

Today we upgraded the forum to the latest version of XenForo forum software.

This release adds a number of significant features to XenForo, including:
  • Native push notifications on supported devices/browsers

  • Tables

  • Emoji enhancements including an improved smilie menu with easy emoji access
  • Video uploads (Premium...
 

OtLand XenForo 2 and forum changes

Happy New Year everyone!

As you probably noticed, the forum looks a bit different now. We have upgraded to XenForo 2 and you can now enjoy some new features.

Noteworthy changes
  1. There is a new skin (style) of Otland and it is very mobile-friendly. We will likely stay with this one because alternatives for XenForo 2 are not convincing, nor needed.
    I am aware that many of you would like to see a "dark" theme. Unfortunately, there are no good quality dark...

OtLand Attachments & More

Dear Otlanders!

Today I wanted to formally announce changes that were gradually implemented over the past two weeks.

Attachments & Downloads
First and most important, we have enabled attachments and raised the limit of a single attachment to 50 MB.

Why and how was it possible?
Over the past few years I have noticed that many links are dying. We have created The Graveyard and we were force to move content with dead...

OtLand Introducing Best Answers

Dear Otlanders!

Today we have added a cool functionality available inside the Support board only. Once your problem was resolved, you can now mark the solution as a "Best Answer" - in a manner similar to how Q&A sites work.

This makes it easier for other people browsing the forum to clearly notice problems with existing solutions and it also helps our Support Team browse through the threads to see the ones without an answer (it is possible...
 

OtLand New Support Team Members!

It's been a while since we have added new members to the Support Team group.

If you're not familiar with the previous announcement, this is an elite group of people who spend a great deal of their time helping other members on Otland, mainly in the Support board. The Otland Staff selects new members to this group who receive certain benefits and recognition for their contribution. Most of the previous members who started as Support...
 

OtLand Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Greetings OTLand!

We, the OTLand staff, would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May it bring you joy, happiness, and everything else you deserve.

Happy Holidays, and thank you all for the year we have had together! Let's hope that we still have many more years to come.

Sincerely,
The OTLand Staff
 

Happy Holidays 2014!

Greetings OtLand!
Another year is coming to an end and we are so happy to receive 2015.
We can't believe how fast time is passing, how many victories we had this year, how many failures we survived in our personal lives.

But this is it! Take a tame to enjoy your family, have a nice dinner with them, hug your loved ones, give, receive. Don't make foolish goals, try to make them realistic, ask for help to fulfill them and try not to lose one more year.

Thank you all for...
 

OtLand New staff members & anniversary

It's about time for new blood in the staff. We're adding four new global moderators, and demoting some of the current moderators due to inactivity (as in, they haven't logged in or posted anything for months, and haven't provided any reason for their inactivity). We'd like to thank the following users for being part of our staff until today: Bogart, ntmr...
 

OtLand New dark theme and new posts widget.

Dear members,

Since we were getting a lot of criticism about the current theme and apparently, a lot of people wanted to have a darker theme, I suggested a new theme with a dark color scheme. The new theme was approved by our staff team, which was bought by me a few moments ago. It's the dark version of our current theme so do not expect any big update that you'll have to cope with again. You'll also be given the possibility to switch between the current theme...

OtLand Security breach and moving to XenForo

Due to a vulnerability in vBulletin, a user managed to gain full admin rights on the forum. We don't believe that any sensitive data such as password hashes were exposed, but it was technically possible that they were with the access level the user had, so we recommend that you change your passwords.

Because of this event, we're rushing our migration from vBulletin to the forum software XenForo and because of that the forum is unfortunately not in the state we would have wished that it was...
 

OtLand Arabian Board and staff recruitment (April Fools Joke)

Hello OtLanders,

It has come to the attention of the OtLand staff that there are many Arabians in OtLand that would love to have an own board, it seemed unfair to have an unused board like the Dutch one which has been implemented and not used for a long time now, so after a long time and a big discussion in the Staff Board, the OtLand staff has decided to open an Arabian Board due to the high amount of Arabians in this forum, which means we're going to need new Board Moderators that are...

OtLand Please do not bite the newcomers - Newcomers Welcome Policy

Dear Otland members,

For some time we have observed decreasing interest in OpenTibia world in general, Otland forum (as well as other OT-related community boards), Otserv/TFS servers and OpenTibia-hacking in general. It is obvious that Tibia is becoming less popular all the time and the community is expanding(?) slowly. We have few developers on whom OT world almost entirely depends on. Even they are sometimes retiring and there are no new contributors that would continue their efforts...
 

OtLand OpenTibia has moved to Github!

OpenTibia has now moved to github for future development.

You can find the new project at https://github.com/opentibia , with a new sleek interface and all that jazz.

There is also a wiki available at github at https://github.com/opentibia/server/wiki , while humble now, in the future, server documentation, guides and information on how to contribute will be available on github as well. If you'd like to contribute, just register an account at github and start...
 

Happy Holidays!

Hello everybody! The OtLand staff would like to say how much we wish for you a Merry Christmas this year. Also, talking about this year, Fury told me that he is happy because we all survived this 2012 world's event (The Last Day 21st December).

We hope that you can share (give and receive), and spend time with the people you like in an enjoyable way.

In advance: Happy New Year!
Do you already have your next year goals? Well we hope you can reach every goal you write or dream...
 

OtLand Introducing Support Team group

Hello Dear Otlanders!

Not long from the last announcement, I have some piece of information that you might find interesting!

It is my pleasure to introduce Support Team group to Otland.

1. What is it?
Support Team is a new group of members on Otland, just like Administrators, Community Managers, Global Moderators and so...
 

OtLand New global moderators

Bogart, Peroxide and Scarlet Ayleid have been doing an awesome job as board moderators and it is finally their time to become global moderators! We might be opening the staff recruitment board later if we feel that we need new board moderators, but for now you will have to fear our mascot Fury who is the one and only board moderator.
 

OtLand Now and the future

It is now over five years since OtLand was launched (fifth birthday was at 27th May, 2012), and we're still growing despite what may be happening to other OpenTibia websites. There is no reason for us to stop.

Today we have updated the forum software, some of our own plugins and the search engine. Some significant changes are:

  • Activity stream
  • Notification when receiving reputation
  • Reputation comments tab in user profiles
  • Double post prevention (posts will be merged if...
