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 .

    Even as a non smoker I can't agree with the smoking thing. My parents smoked and I know why. They needed a cheap relaxant and became chronically addicted on the 10 second fix. They didn't know better and until real anti-smoking education kicks in, people will still do it. Its simply too addictive to stop without extreme effort.


    In terms of the (voluntarily) obese I have no sympathy whatsoever and agree with non treatment. Ignorance is simply no excuse as even the dumbest person knows (by how they feel and function bodily) that over eating, taking no exercise and becoming a sixteen-plus stone lard bucket isn't good for you.

    There is simply no excuse for being voluntarily over weight.

    Ok I have to call you on that...there are many people who can eat like pigs yet remain thin. Some of these thin people nevertheless can in fact develop heart disease because of poor diet, smoking, stress or even genetics.

    Also there are a lot of people, especially women, who suffer thyroid problems. Hyperthyroidism, too active, means a very high metabolism and weight loss, hypothyroidism - the opposite can lead to weight gain. Of course I presume a doctor would know.

      My girlfriend works/studies as a trainee nurse, told me that yesterday the hospital her current placement is at admitted a man whose plane had arrived from Goa and he had collapsed 4 hours later with (quite conveniently) a full set of medical notes for himself in his possession.

      I asked her to ask how often that type of thing goes on, still waiting for the answer on that one but im suspecting its more common than we might otherwise think ie health tourism.

      before refusing to care for those who pay in, start shutting the doors on those who do not I say.
