New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • PS4 or X Box?

    Need some advice. We want to get a console system for our niece's kids.
    Ages 15/16.
    Since there are only about a billion recommendations on the Internet, I thought I'd turn to the resident experts here for advice.

    Limitations:
    Must be rugged enough to survive regular use by two ham-fisted boys. So either sturdy or cheap and easy to replace controllers etc.
    Must be resistant to occasional misuse by the pre-school twins.
    Local Internet is pretty slow.

    Any help will be appreciated.
    Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

    I have a PS4 and have logged a lot of time on it. I had an Xbox 360 before it. and of the two I prefer the PS4.

    If you net service is slow, you're screwed in terms of Net gaming no matter which platform you have.

      They can still play each other and friends come over constantly.
      I also want to make sure they get any needed system updates so the more stable device would be preferable.

        New, the X-Box 1 X. Expensive at $499. Powerful, plays the existing X-Box 1 games, but at much higher resolution up to 4K.

        Deceptive advertising given that the newest titles, such as Ark Survival Evolved, are going to look like crap in that resolution. No console is capable of getting anywhere close to 4K resolution on the newest open world games or the epic quality of 1080P. You need a top end PC for that.

        In all fairness, all games will look a lot better given the 40% increase in processing power of the graphic card and additional system ram.

          I had a ps4 and i gotta say that is pretty much resistant,good game quality and high resolution.The price in my country is about 300 euros,so not to much expensive except the controllers which are very expensive(70 euros). So i suggest you to buy a ps4. Krieger

            No matter how you put it, Sony is still the leader and Microsoft is trying to copy everything they do. I have both PS3 and PS4 running in the house.

              I have both. XBox all the way. (We've had both all the way back to the first machines - I've always preferred Xbox).
