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 .

  • Royal Navy shoots dead Somali pirate suspects off coast of Yemen.

    The Royal Navy has repelled a pirate attack on a Danish cargo ship off the coast of Yemen, shooting dead two men believed to be Somali pirates.

    The Ministry of Defence (MoD) confirmed the incident took place on Tuesday, when HMS Cumberland crew members tried to board a traditional wooden dhow.

    Linky.

    A DANISH cargo ship? I'm telling you now, if the Somali pirates are trying to take my LEGO - it's WAR.

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

            Can't get away from 'em no matter where you go.

            As to the original post - good work gents.

              Nice work, but it will take more.

              I wonder if its time for naval Mercenaries to make an appearance... refurbush an old Destroyer and go in harm's way?

                    hopefully this signifies that the pirate threat will not be tolerated, and that we will defend the free passage of ships in international waters, by force if necessary..

                    ...nice work, Royal Navy..!

                      Are you thinking of something along the lines of Letters of Marque and Reprisal which are still doable under Article 1 Section of the US Constitution?

                        With about 2000 miles of Somali coastline and who know how far out to sea, it will be difficult to patrol. Of course, we could go back to WW2 tactics and start a convoy system to protect shipping. The ultimate goal should be the installation of a strong central government in Somalia.

                            On the subject at hand. It's going to be more interesting to see what happens to the Pirates who where arrested. This wasn't the type 22 under fire, these where sea boats crewed by RM trying to board the Pirate vessel. Should have just employed a few 4.5" rounds and solved allot of problems.

                            The idea has been floated before. The Problem lies with the international Maritime laws on armaments. In which if a ship docks in a port, or enters a countries territorial waters, it must first obey all that countries laws of firearms, and have all the necessary paper work. God help you if you get lost! Although that said I don't think the countries along that stretch of the coast are going to complain too loudly.
