Welcome to the new site

Written by

hi all,

Welcome to the new version of, it's been a long time in the making but it's finally here, i would first of all like to apologise to all the people who where waiting for the site to come back, i know from the emails and comments sent that people are big fans of the site and are enthused to be part of our little community.

So what has changed, well quite a lot, most of it with stuff you cant see with updated code that has been built for mobile devices and is much more modern.  The first thing you will notice is the new theme, this one has some of the best mobile options out there, the colours need some tweaking but that will happen over the next day or so.  Other changes have come about with the new theme, you will notice that the traditional me, myself and i has disappeared, it's actually gone to the top of the page under the "open panel" pull down link,  more stuff will go there as time does on.

You will notice that your avatars have gone, this is deeply annoying as the files are there but the software will not link to them, so you are going to have to reupload them, i've set the software to offer better quality and larger avatars so those avatars which are more detailed will keep a lot more of that detail, if people need help uploading them then please PM me the images and i'll add them via the backend.

Speaking of PM's you will notice that all the pm's are gone, they could not be transferred over so what i will do is set up a stripped down version of the old site with only pm's available, there will be no forum, no library or anything else just the pm's so that you can download them, i'll have that setup later on this week.

The galleries are not there but will be returned at the start of the new year, this is to allow me to sort them out as we never really got the libraries sorted, that will be my priority in the new year.

There will be a number of tweaks to happen to the site over the week, i'll set up a dedicated thread for people to report any site issues that have arisen from the relaunch.

Again i would like to apologize to members for the delay in getting the site transfered over, it should have taken a few hours tops not 2 days, this is due to the fact that when i tested the move i used migration scripts that would perfectly but when i came to use them for the main transfer all hell broke out, i ended up having to manually moving each database table by hand and check and verify that worked, i had to rebuild the menu and that took more time than i expected, there are still things that need tweaked but that will happen over the next day or so.



Some passwords are not working if this has happened to you, please email me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your username and i'll reset your password
