How To: Get Archive Access
Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.


What Are The Archives?
A lot has happened at Global Conflict over the years. Many campaigns have come and gone; lands have been conquered, and foes have been vanquished. In an effort to keep all the forums organized and easy to navigate, old and irrelevant (and blood-stained?) forums are removed from the public view. There is a lot of passion and good memories recorded over time, so it's a pity to simply delete them! Instead, old forums are moved into The Archives.


How Do I Get Access?
For the first time ever, The Archives are freely open to anyone who wants to see them! To gain access, you simply need to join the Archives/Historian usergroup. Follow these easy steps:

- Open your User Control Panel (UCP).
- Click on the "Usergroups" link.
- Click the radio button next to the "Archive / Historian" group (on the right).
- Ensure that "Join Selected" is your choice at the bottom of the list.
- Hit the "Submit" button.
- Press "Yes" to confirm.

Congrats! You can now see The Archives.
Return to the Board Index and The Archives will be visible.

How Do I Hide The Archives?
Done perusing The Archives, and want to hide them from view again? It's easy! Follow these quick little steps:

- Open your User Control Panel (UCP).
- Click on the "Usergroups" link.
- Click the radio button next to the "Archive / Historian" group (on the right).
- Ensure that "Resign Selected" is your choice at the bottom of the list.
- Hit the "Submit" button.
- Press "Yes" to confirm.

How Do I Post In The Archives?
Simple: you don't! The Archives exist purely for historical reference only. No one may post to them! If you feel that there is a forum which needs to be recovered from it's Archive state and returned to full use, please post the request in the relevant forum.

The maintenance performed on the Archives between the old forums and the current forums:

· Added users from the "Strategy Archives" usergroup to the "Complete Archives" usergroup.
· Deleted the "Strategy Archives" usergroup.
· Renamed "Complete Archives" to "Archives / Historian"
· Created a new parent forum named "The Archives"
· Moved all archived forums to be children of the "The Archives" parent group.
· Removed all permissions related to the The Archives family.
· Granted "Read Only" access to the The Archives family.
· Made the "Archives / Historian" usergroup open membership.
· Started this thread.

Hope that helps clear things up! :)
