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 .

            What's all the stupid fuss about. If you've ever done a search using a search engine you'e relied on the work of a spider to keep the search engine index up to date. Hands up all those who've never done a search on the Internet. Right you can moan anyone else is a hypocrite
            Used to be called crawlers and been round even longer than Google.

              Unfortunately, you have not understood my supreme ignorance about internet spiders. I can be somewhat dim some of the time.

              Spiders are less crawlers than stalkers afaik. I've seen LOTR so I know I'm right.

                  .
                  spider. Part of the Internet technologies glossary: A spider is a program that visits Web sites and reads their pages and other information in order to create entries for a search engine index. The major search engines on the Web all have such a program, which is also known as a "crawler" or a "bot."

                    Ugh, remember Archie? Whew, that took some work. I'm slightly surprised that ACG allows crawlerbots but I suppose ads rather require that nowadays. No biggie; it's all part of the ecosystem....

                        In there other job, they run around the environs of Skyrim and can be annoying little buggers

                        Or with a bauble or medal
                        Can win mans heart for you;
                        And many a blessing know to stew

                          Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.
