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
- 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 .

  • Travel in the Empire of Kim Jong Un - A Glimpse of North Korea - from Der Spiegel

    Der Spiegel article - Travels in the Empire of Kim Jong Un: A Glimpse of North Korea. Has eleven pictures, the first makes me think of the stories from the USSR where people had to clap after Stalin spoke, and no one would stop first, until someone toppled over. Some of the generals look like they are about to topple over. Some of the other pictures make one think of "1984", which I assume was why they were selected.,00.html

    Raw video from the AP from 1/26/2012 of His excellency Kim Jong Un visiting a school upon the occasion of the lunar Chinese New Year.

    Raw video from the AP from 1/8/2012 of His Excellency Kim Jong Un driving a tank.

    The Honorable Michael S. Dukakis, former Massachusetts Governor and 1988 Democratic Party Presidential Nominee, driving a tank.

    I think you got the wrong link. Here is Kim in the driver's hatch of a PT-76.

    [And I'm morally compelled to point out that Dukakis never drove or operated any part of the tank. He just went for a joy ride.]
    Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.
