I can appreciate needing to update everything, at very least you have to keep upgraded to avoid security vulnerabilities.

Overall this new "skin" looks close enough to the old to be comfortable, with enough newness to give it a fresh feel.

Well done!

Why ironmaiden708 isn't red like Ironman and TimD?
I think that whole site needs to be updated, I had to force myself to enter it when I saw it for the first time...

That is because he is just a moderator. Tim and I are also administrators.


That's right Ken, security is indeed the reason for needing to upgrade PHP. It had a lot of vulnerabilities. By using the new version, we will have those holes plugged. Then that in turn prompted the need to upgrade the forum, as the new PHP would break the old forum software. The upgrade was already being planned, this just bumped up it's priority.

Having the avatars on the right -hand side was disconcerting. Now, everything looks close to normal. It's an easier leap to make than the tree-type messaging that I saw when I first came to this site.

And if the upgrade cuts down on spam, so much the better.

Two thumbs up!

This is like most of the boards I post on, so no big deal. Really like the addition of the quick reply.

I like it so far. I missed the avatars on the right, so it looks pretty "normal" to me.

Are the limits on avatars still the same? I've had a couple of avatars that I've wanted to use, but couldn't make small enough but still clear. I'll try again.

The avatars can be a little bigger now. However I could always change it, or resize the picture for you.

Andy, I can't even see your avatar, it's just an X at the top left.

I loosened avatar restrictions a little. 20X20 is the minimum and 160X160 is the maximum. You are also limited to 16K.

Thanks, Ironman. Now everyone can see how incredibly jacked I really am.

By the way, why do have 5 old used birthday cake candles above my avatar?
