Please Note

The Forum / Site has some critical issues atm.The most dramatic one is the 502 error thrown by Cloudflare due to most likely our server.I assume it's performance related and my hopes are to find a solution during the weekend.
If you encounter issues a simple reload should most likely fix it. - I know: not perfect - but thats what you get when a single developer is responsible for everything and only a small testing group checked the beta site out.  :dolphin:
The post will be updated once we make progress - be sure to also check out our Discord for more frequent updates.

Hey guys,

after over two years it's finally here, our site overhaul.
It was a long and stressfull journy and we are happy to finally share this project with everyone.

Please forgive us if there are some issues in the next few days, we will monitor the site and might hotfix issues which we simply couldn't find in our Closed, Donor & Open Beta ;)

Most noteworthy changes compared to our old site:

We have some great news to share, so let's get started!


Release date

We are very excited to announce the release date for the new UGX-Mods theme.

The upcoming weekend (September 8th - 9th) will be the beta release on our production site.
After over 2 years of planning, developing, testing and refineing it's finally happening.


Downtime / Maintenance

There will be a downtime of 1-2 hours !
During that time we will migrate everything on production.

We will announce the exact time on our UGX-Mods Discord and on Twitter (@UGXMods).


Last Open Beta version has been released

We also released the last open beta release on https://beta.ugx-mods.com - go check it out now! Everyone can take a look before it goes on production this weekend <3

In this release we added new emotes like this one: :ugxmods_blue:
We also added support for emojis: :heart_eyes: :laughing: :thumbsup: (you can only see them on https://beta.ugx-mods.com/forum - this will obviously change with the go-live)

Hello community,

Today is an exciting day for us. We have finally released our new UGX-Mods Forum as Open Beta to everyone.

Simply head over to https://beta.ugx-mods.com to get started - be sure to give us feedback (see below) so that we can improve it before it goes live on our main domain (production).

Please note: Your user settings won't be carried over, so beta and non beta (production) won't share the same settings.
This also effects some forum settings and statistics like total forum user count and such.

Other than that, Beta and Production share the same data and you are free to use Beta as long the Open Beta goes.

You can also share beta links, once we move out we simply redirect the links to the correct site (heart)

Before we dive into the major changes, let's talk about you and your privacy first!


GDPR | Your privacy

You probably received dozens of emails about Privacy Policy changes and such. Well we updated our as well!
We refined it and made it more transparent. We also respect the EU GDPR and apply the changes and features to everyone including non EU citizens.
We face one big issue: Currently only https://beta.ugx-mods.com has these changes!
We try to get out of the Open Beta as fast as possible but we believe it will take up to two weeks before we can do that.
If you have any GDPR related concerns, simply use https://beta.ugx-mods.com which has all changes to comply with GDPR already.
We most likey will refine our Privacy Policy further and require your consent soon again - we are no expe...
