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 .

    Yes and no.
    There are likely three main reasons for immigration (from the host country standpoint).
    1. wage suppression
    2. low or negative population growth
    3. need for certain skills

    Of this, the primary factor depends on the country; sometimes one factor will be paramount, other times all three are working together. Often different factors relate to different target immigrant groups and different processes are involved: You don't have hordes of trained computer programmers and other skilled workers flooding over the Rio Grande - these persons have to go through complicated established immigration procedures. Low skilled workers are almost the exclusive domain of "illegal immigration" which is not really "illegal", since it is quietly sanctioned by the government. This type of immigration truly is designed almost solely for the purpose of wage suppression, hence it's "illegal" appellation, since government - although reflecting the interests of the dominant business classes - does not wish to appear completely hostile to the working class elements of their constituencies. Thus, government figures will consistently and continuously rail against "illegal immigrants" while simultaneously doing nothing to stop it - other than proposing the most ridiculous or expensive means of stopping it (such as constructing border walls). Heavy, prohibitive fines levied against businesses which hire illegals seems too simplistic and the fact that it would generate off-setting revenues for the financing of anti-illegal immigration measures makes it a prohibitive idea for government.
