New Forums and Blog Fix

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Great news everybody! The new SanrioTown forums is now live! This new and improved forums uses an upgraded system and is being powered by vBulletin.

It’s almost gonna start from scratch since migrating the threads from the old forums is not possible because their systems are different and incompatible. Good thing that with the help of the other SanrioTown users, Hello Kitty Online players and Game Moderators a few threads have been moved already.

We still need more help and the old forums will only be around until the 3rd of March.

Also, the issue with the “Latest Posts” not showing up in the blogs that has been rampant for some time has now been fixed. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience caused. Thank you very much!
