    Hey everyone! As you may have noticed the forums have been down for 2 days now. In that time we've been upgrading all the forum software and importing the old forums to the new!

    You may notice some difference way of doing things here on the new forum, here are a few things off the top of my head that might help you get settled in:

    • Private Messages (PM) are now called Conversations. In the upper right of the screen you'll see your Inbox there, where you can read old or create new Conversations. In principle it is the same thing as a PM, it just displays as a thread now. You can invite new people into the Conversation.
    • Alerts will send you a pop up if you visit any page on the forum. You can get Alerts from threads you are watching, someone quoting your post, or getting tagged.
      • To watch a thread, under the Quick Reply box hit the "More Options..." button, there you will see a checkbox to watch a thread when you post to it. You can also get emailed if there are any replies to the thread.
        • watch_thread.jpg
      • Tagging someone will send them an alert! Just put @Name somewhere in your post.
      • You can turn Alerts off in your Alert Preferences.
    • To look through all the smilies we have, it's now a slide-down box under the text box when making a new post or thread.
      • smilies.jpg
    • When making a post it's default "What you see is what you get", if you want to see the manual bbcode for your posts, hit the upper right button on the posting text box (says "Use BBCode Editor" when you mouse over it).
      • bbcode_edit.jpg
    Please report any problems, weirdness, things that aren't supposed to be there or just don't look right, funk, etc to me via PM/Conversation!

    Very cool - Nice fresh, new look, very crisp and snappy. I'll test it out a bit right now with some random shite. Above all though,

    I think the girls marching band are hotter



    edit: testing some of the features, looks like when I used media tags it added a media=youtube and left the original media tag in place.

    Well, good to see the video aspect is working properly, lol

    btw, im usually partial to girls that have that 'girl next door look', until they wanna 'turn on the light switch'... also helps with fist fights, every where you go, heh, To each their own though! heheheheh

    Glad we're staying on topic here... lulz

    Jesus christ... No edit :S... are we keeping this new Rank scheme? "New member/Member/Active Member" etc? One would hope that we use our own ranking :P I know, work in progress.

    Another bug. Getting "You do not have sufficient privs to reply/post here" on a lot of the public access areas... odd.
