First off, welcome back to the newly upgraded SFI system Shawols! Have you missed us?! Cause we've sure missed all of you! We sincerely apologize for the prolonged return of SFI. Us staff have been working night and day to get SFI back up and running smoothly for all you Shawols♡. So exactly what happened during our downtime? We had upgraded SFI to the newest version of IBP in order to have a much better system of protection against spam/spambots. The upgrade took much longer than expected due to the large number of members, topics, posts & PMs on SFI.

3/20 Update - Please Read!
SFI closed twice! Oh no! What happened? After re-opening the first time, we thought we were completely free and in the clear. We only realized a couple days later that the upgrade we had conducted ended up being corrupted which caused SFI to malfunction on a variety of levels. In order to fix SFI, we had to close it once more. I will try to explain the situation as simply as I possibly can . . in medical terms. Warning: The following may contain cheesy and somewhat dramatic lines.

After SFI was examined by the doctors over at Koreaboo, SFI was diagnosed as extremely corrupt; in a coma. It came to the point of no repair, we were told to prepare losing large portions of SFI. A number of procedures were conducted there after to try and fix SFI, but nothing seemed to work. We were at a loss. After days of planning and brainstorming, Koreaboo had finally found a cure for our poor SFI. No one was 100% sure if SFI would survive the ordeal but at the time, we would do anything to get SFI back to normal standing. After Owners Sanbi & I had agreed to the plan Koreaboo had devised, SFI had undergone intensive surgery which included a multitude of intricate steps and phases. After days of worry and anxiousness, the verdict was released. The surgery was successful, Koreaboo had saved the life of our precious SFI. Although SFI was saved, it is still recovering. So we ask that you excuse any minor problems or bugs you may encounter during your visit here. On behalf of Team SFI & our SFI members, we would like to express our utmost gratitude towards the doctors over at Koreaboo, especially Ryan & Anthony. Thank you for all the hard work and time you put into saving SFI. *gives cookies*


With this new IPB system, we have installed a bunch of new features such as, but not limited to the following :

  • Member Map: http://www.shineee.n...php?/membermap/
    Have you ever wondered if there were any Shawols near you? Punch in your location onto our Member Map to see where our Shawols are around the world! Since the map is brand new, it's still quite empty. So let's go ahead and fill it up Shawols! Let's show the world how geographically diverse SHINee fans are! P.S. No stalking please. We don't need any creepers up in here.
  • Custom Side Boxes - News Flash
    A mini sized news box that will be updated regularly with important forum announcements, facts, and even casual tips & tricks that SFIers should know.
  • Custom Side Boxes - SFI Facebook
    A small Facebook widget that will show you Shawols our latest Facebook updates regardless if you actually have a Facebook or not.
  • Custom Side Boxes - Donate to SFI (Paypal)
    For those who usually donate, I'm sure you'll be quite happy with this feature. And for newer donors, we've just made your life a tad bit easier! Pretty self explanatory. If you plan to donate using your Paypal account, use this donation widget of ours to pass through all that needless donor info with ease.
  • Topic Rollover
    Ever found annoying having to click each and every topic in order to find out exactly what was inside? Well problem fixed. If you rollover topics and hover for a second or two, you'll find a mini pop-up window that will display a simplified version of the topic's top portion.
  • Board Statistics Area - Active Team Members
    Ever wondered which Staff members were actually on? Or, did it bother you having to weave through all those online members looking for staff? Well here you go, a bar dedicated solely to online Staff members to benefit both you and our very Team SFI.
  • SFI Mobile
    There is now an automatically generated Mobile version of SFI. Meaning, you can now access SFI with much more ease when away from computers. However, since this Mobile version was automatically generated, it has not been tested or customized in any special way. Yet.

    There are a bunch of other new features and fun stuff, but I'll leave you all to explore for yourselves. So be sure to browse around SFI and get your bearings in tact.
We are still in the process of fixing any bugs found on the forums. So please accept our advanced apologies in the case you run into any minor trouble while browsing the site. Also, don't be surprised if you see sudden, small changes on the forum every now and then. That's just us SFI staff working on the site!

Lastly, this current layout should look somewhat familiar to most. It is a temporary, restructured version of our most recent Cloud 5 layout. Please bear with us, as us staff are unfamiliar to this newly upgraded IPB system as well. So for the time being, a brand new layout will NOT be installed immediately but is surely underway.


And while we have your attention, here are two important links for you Shawols.

  • New Laws & Rules of SFI
    Please take the time to read and comment on our newly updated Laws & Rules of SFI. Includes a visual bset guide and clearer guidelines.
  • Hiring! - Japanese Translators
    I'm sure many of you have heard of SHINee's upcoming advancement into Japan. With this offical debut, we are now in need of Japanese translators to join SHINee Subs. If you are truly fluent in Japanese, please click here to view the official topic for more information.

We truly appreciate your support and your utmost patience. We hope to bring you a better SFI in the future. Thank you Shawols!


From,
Team SFI

SFI I MISS YOU SO MUCH. /sobs ESPECIALLY THE PEOPLE IN IT.
HUUUUUUU ;~~~; PLEASE DO NOT GET SICK ONCE AGAIN.


After waiting for a gazillion years, SFI is finally back. I saw Shane's tweets about SFI is going under serious problems so I was aware that it might be down for a long time. Sadly, this week is my finals so I can't really do all the stuffs I wanna do here in SFI.

Thank you for the hardwork Shane & people @Koreaboo.

Lasco92 : (15 April 2017 - 06:02 AM) Thank you~ hehe
Harmony : (14 April 2017 - 07:39 AM) I didn't know post concert depression had a acronym hahahaha. I nearly read it as OCD at first
