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 .

      Say this to Brits kicked out from Zimbabwe, this respect and adaption must be mutual in other case it's called colonisation.
      Kosovo is Serbian.
      I support United Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
      Behead those who say Islam is violent!

        I know White Zimbabweans kicked out of the Country and it is a shame. The racist policies of their forefathers is not their crime however!

          Decolinization to decivilization...

          When the European powers left Africa in the 1960's and 70's, they left functioning governments, economies and institutions. The Europeans dragged those people 10,000 years into the modern world in the space of a century. Socialism, corruption, crime and anarchy is the world they have created for themselves...
          If war is Hell, why was the Eastern Front so damned cold??!!

            I would like to make a discussion about the immigrants in Europe.
            In the past years the European politics towards immigrants has changed a bit.
            France has ordered the deportation of many immigrants, German chancelor Angela Merkel has said that the Multicultural Germany has failed, and the Swiss have decided to kick all foreigners who do not obey the Swiss laws.

            And I would especially like to hear the oppinion of Other Europeans about their views of the immigrants.
            The human rights laws was force apond these European nations.
            These governments and there cilvlains had no choice in the matter,force to take on non white Europeans.
            Back in 1948,the goverments and the clivlains (if there was no UN) would had voted No,why do you think our parents and grand parents never recieved this right to vote back in 1948? Cause they really wanted to get this human rights laws including non Europeans in Europe and they knew for a fact that no Europeans wanted this to happend;heck,these days they encouage us for our votes.
            I can see now,European countries wish to become what they once were.

            Have you notice a pattern going on?

            All non English speaking countreis are taking a stand against diversity/ non Europeans

            While-----

            All english speaking countires are still suporting devesity---
            After all it was the English speaking world that made this deversity law in Europe,now;other Europeans counries are seeing some light and doing something about it.

            What went wrong is that we intruduced a culture that was so alienated from our own European culture that it clashed with ours,this does not work,there is only room for one culture in one country.

              Is socialism a bad thing? Thats a matter to debate. I am no left winger but I think you are mixing up socialism with harder versions like Bolshevism or Maoism.

              The Colonial powers also drew borders that were pathetically thought over. Causing many years of inter-tribal strife. That is the effect of colonialism.

                If immigration is natural then so is resistance to immigration. Most of the migration waves in history were in fact invasions. Immigrants had to break their way in sword in hand.

                  I am not denying that resistance is not also natural.

                  Though it was not all invasions was it. Heugenots in England, Poles and Jewish Europeans in England, Former Imperial colonies and now it goes further.

                  It is only now that resistance is mounting. I understand some of it as I think it may have gone too far in some cases with Asylum Seekers who are not real meaning true needs are not met. Though today too many hotheads have such petty arguments in order to tar all with the same brush!

                    I dont agree as EU which has only one anglo-saxon as member is as comitted to multicultism as USA, Canada or A-NZ are. I do see another patern however: all those noble human rights laws enacted after WWII are only enforced on western countries, look on sub saharian Africa which is on worse state than fifty years ago the real "Heart of darkness" the Arab muslim countries openly denying relgiion freedoms and basic right to women, Asian countries who openly have asian only policy etc... All this is overlooked by our PC minded elite ridden on whiteguilt trip. What is worse in today world we have to compete for markets and resourcess with countries like Chian and India not saddled with all this social balast and loony eco regulations. When the welfare funds will dry out I don't expect French "youths" to accept it with calm and undertanding. And they're just one division in army of underclass.

                      A fair counterpoint to my strident statements...

                      The world powers did not set up the colonies out of altruism for the native inhabitants, the "white mans's burden" argument was more of an excuse for establishing markets and securing raw materials. The borders were drawn for geo-political and not local ethnographic reasons, and the West has had to pay the price for such actions from WW1 to the Middle East today. My attack on socialism was the version where it was used as an excuse for kleptocracy by the likes of Mubuto and Mugabe.

                      That still does not change the fact that the colonies got far more than was taken and owe the West for whatever good is to be had today in their countries. Democracy is a Western concept.

                        How does a nation benefit by increasing its labor supply through immigration when there is still domestic unemployment and poverty?

                          Your a "true" native to whatever country you were born into and are a part of.

                            You can't simply describe them all that way. There are women in the Kuwaiti legislature; churches in the UAE. Syria has had a Christian community since the time of Jesus.

                            Here's a map by a British Christian anti-persecution organisation.

                              Indeed; much of the non-white community in Europe was born in those countries, either the metropolitan areas or their former empires.

                                Maybe it can be seen in that way though the forceful implementation of colonialism was not he way obviously. Though those were different ages and if Britain had not her Empire she might of succumbed many a year ago. It is hard to judge today with our standards on history that looked at things so differently.

                                The British colonies did get a lot more out of our occupation than many. In many ways the British can be proud of that, though we must ask ourselves why.

                                With regards to your comment on Mugabe I can understand where your coming from, though it can easily be misread when you use the term socialism.
