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 .

      Looks fun. Instead of a ribbon, maybe you can create a medal with the face of Wallace Shawn on it.

        At the very least, I think the ribbon for this should be shown askew.

        Or maybe forgotten altogether.

          The Wild Card

          Members, gaze upon your Wild Card:



          As you all know , we always try to find a new and refreshing approach to our tourneys.
          This time everybody will automatically receive a Wild Card. These Wild Cards are worth 2 extra voting points and can only be used ONCE per member during the tourney.

          What is the purpose of this Wild Card?

          Donít you hate it when one of your favorites just doesnít make it through the preliminaries or to the next round?

          Donít you wish that you could just have one more vote in order to be able to support the battle that YOU feel should win?

          With this Wild Card, you will be able to support your favorite battle with not ONE, but TWO extra votes.


          How do I use my Wild Card?

          Easy, you just post your Wild Card publicly on the thread and clearly add which battle you would like to support with an extra TWO votes.

          Wild Cards sent by PM will be considered void. They are only valid when posted PUBLICLY !!!


          When do I post my Wild Card?

          After the official closing of the preliminaries or the tournament round, members will receive exactly 24 HOURS Ėnot more nor less- to post their Wild Cards.

          Wild Cards that have been posted before the closing of the poll or more than 24 hours after the poll will automatically be considered void. So it is of utmost importance to handle quickly.

          Use it wisely gents and lasses !

                  Worst (or best?) blunder will win this tourney. Brackets may be forthcoming.

                    I already won. I blundered by forgetting to vote.

                              The next campaign will begin here in Armchait Attacks in the very near future.

                              It is how one gains those little ribbons some of us have in our vanity plates...
