After 2 years of giving enormous important contribution to Apolyton's move from it's old environment into the future, Jeroen and Arno are leaving Apolyton's administration. Jeroen designed and configured the entire new Apolyton look and feel, based on a concept of Rutger van Overbeek. After that Jeroen migrated and imported the Apolyton forums. A hell of a job considering the old age of a lot of the data. Arno set up the new servers and configured the environment to host Apolyton in a very convenient way. Without the input of Arno and Jeroen Apolyton would not exist today anymore.
Both Arno and Jeroen picked up new responsibilities that made it more and more difficult for them to contribute to Apolyton. That lead to the decision to leave the Apolyton administration and transfer all ownership rights to Robert Plomp.
Apolyton owes a lot to Jeroen, Arno and Rutger (who left a couple of months earlier) for all their work. As a sign of our gratefulness they will receive the honorary member title on Apolyton. ...byPublished on April 3, 2011 13:01
They were gone, we missed them, we already gave up hope, but we found them: The archives.
We just had to place them back, so enjoy.

Since Apolyton's move to the new server and vBulletin 4, there is still some work that needs to be done. We still have the legacy avatars, the archives, and the download database. But today we can celebrate the return of the old attachments.

Initially, Apolyton had some ugly blue message icons. They were left on the old server. Then we had the ugly message icons from vBulletin. And now we have some new shiny message icons from our smilie database....
Let us know whether you like them, whether we forgot some. Or whether you just dislike the order in which they are displayed.byPublished on December 31, 2010 23:49
Dear Apolyton Member or Visitor,...
Happy new year! Felices fiestas! Frohest fest! Gelukkig nieuwjaar! 春節, 春节v! Dobrze nowy rok!
At Apolyton, we hope that 2011 will bring you happiness, warmth, and prosperity. In addition to this, we wish you the very best for your civ gaming - from 4000 BCE towards victory.
While we are one of the oldest civilization sites, time has certainly not stood still at Apolyton. In the past year we've improved and upgraded the forum structure and technology which supports it at apolyton.net.
As a civilization fan you are no doubt aware that civilization has seen a fifth edition. Various improvements have been incorporated, and we are happy to hear from you about your experiences with this latest installment of the civ tradition. More generally, in the new year, we hope to continue seeing you on the forum for any and all civ-related discussion.

Yesterday Arno returned from his holiday trip and immediately fixed our e-mail problems. Arno is one of the co-owners of Apolyton Civilization Site and acts as the Infrastructural Manager (jobtitle still under consideration ) of Apolyton....
This means that PM notifications, thread subscriptions, mail-confirmations, etc. should now arrive for everyone again, just as in the past. There are some minor problems left over but Arno is working on this to solve these as well.byPublished on September 6, 2010 11:09
While the e-mail problems persist for Apolyton, new member registrations continue to flow in! Over 900 Civ fans from all over the world have signed up for an Apolyton membership in the past few days. Unfortunately only a very few of them were able to finish their registration by clicking the famous 'confirm' link in an e-mail. All because of the Poly Mail Problems. While we continue to look for a solution, we started to approve these registrations manually. This means that right now everybody who registered at Apolyton in the past week now has access! We will continue to manually approve once or twice a day till the problems are solved. So if you read this and did not got any e-mail message yet, just try to login! Welcome at Apolyton Civilization Site!...byPublished on August 27, 2010 03:51
Since the new Apolyton Site went online last week a large number of people have tried to register at Apolyton! About 6 times as many as before! We're happy with these new members a lot, there's one problem though. Our e-mail server is not able to send out confirmation e-mails to any but gmail (or gmail related) addresses. We are trying to figure out what's going wrong, but for now this means that the only way to register at Apolyton is to use a gmail address. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
