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 .

If not for Obama offering military leadership to republicans as some kind of olive branch, we'd have our troops out of there and be doing much better. Instead Petraeus had partisan republican operatives in his HQ devising a strategy to hurt Obama's image(and hundreds of our soldiers). Oh well, if 'Watergate does not bother' you, that shouldn't.
    Obama hurt Obams strategy not republicans.

          Look like the Dutch flyboys are giving the Taliban hell with their Apache Helicopter gunships.

              There seems to be no mention of the civilians killed in these attacks. Unless they are trying to claim all the killed are 'militants', which is highly unlikely obviously. Hopefully we have improved our aim:

                I'm glad to see the strikes are continueing-I had thought they had stopped.

                I love the drones-no risk, no fuss, very high accuracy.

                Hit hard, hit 'em often.

                The idea of terrorist C3 getting snuffed out without warning while they go about their business is a lovely mix of irony and justice.

                  There is also a lot colateral damge from these which causes a load of "blowback" down the line. I think they're a tool but shouldnt be some panacea that some might believe...

                    There's a risk of colateral damage from any military action. That's the price of doing business, as they say.

                    With the drones, though, we avoid any friendly losses.

                    Plus drones seem to be politically more acceptable than manned combat aircraft when penetrateing nuetral air space. Cheaper, too.

                    If you set you goal as killing terrorists wherever they can be found (which I heartily support), than doing it with drones is the best method.

                    Here's the simple poltical reality: if Obama orders the drone strikes halted, or even significantly reduced, then the next terrorist strike against US assets would immediately be blamed on his policy shift, and the Democrats would suffer. There a good reason why Democrats tend to be quicker to order strikes: they are always laboring to avoid the 'soft on terror' label. The 'wimp factor'.
