Hi everyone.

In an attempt to make this a better place with a few new features for ease of use I will be changing a few things around. Including the forum address. So your bookmarks for this place will need to be updated. If you come here and you get an error, go to the main website and click on the forum link.

The forum has been redesigned and should be easier on the eyes for most people. If you have issues viewing the forum, I will instruct you on how you can change back to the old view.

The new forum design will feature 3 new buttons at the top of the forum. "View new posts", "View your posts" and "View Active Topics". Each of these has been requested by our members.

The changes could go into affect at any given moment. After bringing it up to Steve and he thought this might be a good idea I gave Ross the thumbs up to change the forum out.

Please keep in mind this will be on a trial basis. If for any reason collectively we decide this isn't the route to go, we do have the ability to return to the old look and feel.

Your input is encouraged.

That is all!

I do too. I've been messing around with it for a few months. Ross had it 90 percent done in Jan. I told him to finish it and lets put it up. We incorporated the rest of the website in too. So everything we offer is in one area. Hope this works out better.

I think it should. :D

I think we should open at least the General Discussion to the public like we were discussing in another thread. I really think it may draw new peeps in.

Just so everyone knows. Ross will be fine tuning the design as far as colors go.

Thanks for your input Sue, Steve, Bildo and Mike

That fact that I still can't friggin see full threads makes me say NO.

How do I change this back to the old.

What do you mean? Is it cutting off on one side and you have to scroll back and forth? If that's what you mean, that would be in your computer settings.

Just out of curiosity, how come everybody's avatar/i.d. panel next to their posts all vary in size? Not really a problem or anything, I was just wondering what causes some of them to appear wider than others.

Also good news is that the pictures since the last time there were changes seem to be unscathed this time.

Last time there was a change all the img tags had to be replaced to get the old pictures to work right again. I made an effort to go into as many individual posts as I could and correct them, but gave up when I realized how monumental the task was and that I was the only mod who was going to do it. (I'd still like to get them fixed some day.)

Nope. It stops in the middle of the thread so I see the first few lines. Then I see the Media Player line. I have to go into the Reply to Thread option and then scroll down. Same thing happens on FB games, nothing to do with my computer settings but the thing I am looking out.

and now that top is cut off and I can see the last three posts :roll:

retarded.

It's essentially a snapshot of the current thread, that's all you can see is in the little box, nothing more.
