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 .

      They sit in world forums, weirdly denouncing Israel as the worst violator of human rights, the greatest threat to world peace. They demand that Israel cease its checkpoints and walls and its other attempts to save Jewish lives.
      Sorry, I wouldn't want to live in any ME country. Israel may be a liberal democracy, if you're a Israeli citizen, but what about all the others who live within its borders and can't become citizens?

          Israel has immigration policies and laws in effect.

            I'm not talking about Jews wanting to emigrate and you know it.
            What people need to understand is that the Israel of today isn't the Israel of 40 years ago. The breakup of the USSR brought a huge influx of Russians there and they are very powerful. One million Russians came to Israel between 1990-2004, out of a population of 7 million.

              I am a liberal and I don't apologize for the bad actions of Muslims. The wrongdoings of any religion are not to be condoned. I am not anti-Israel. I respect them as would any others.

                It could be a nice discussion forum, but it isn't at the moment. Been there, done that, trying to change :/
                It's hard to admit being wrong...

                lol I remember way back when I started my Marijuana legalization thread I fought for days on why it should remain illegal. But with so much evidence to the contrary, I just had to flat out say, "Dang. You're right, and I'm an idiot."

                But it's tough. But regarding religion (an incredibly personal topic), it's not likely to happen on either side of the spectrum.

                        I asked "where are WE"? I know where you are. However, the discussion is now divided between Muslims and religion, rather than "non-MUslim apologists".

                        Comprende?

                          I'm probably seen as a Liberal by many here, but I do think that Islam has become to pampered/defended in our culture. I mean you dare not draw or portray Muhammad, but Jesus can be and is frequently lampooned in our culture. It would be nice to see Muhammad lampooned for a change.

                            I don't think anyone would go so far to say that all Liberals defend Islam, or that all Conservatives hate Islam. I'm a Conservative, I have Muslim friends; they're good guys. I don't believe that there's anything inherently wrong about Islam, not in particular at least. It's no different than Christianity or Judaism. Personally I think organized religion in general is bad, but that has nothing to do with Islam in particular. The main difference I see between Christianity, Judaism and Islam is Christians and Jews ignore the violent parts of their religious texts and have formed moral and ethical codes from the good parts. Those codes, among other things, form the basis of all morality and ethics in Western Civilization, even for irreligious people.

                            In Islam however, far too many Muslims embrace the bad and ignore the good. They interpret whatever bits of the Koran they want to in whatever way fits their agenda. What's worse, is that the majority of Muslims, who don't necessarily believe in this sort of radicalism, are silent. They do little to denounce it and seem quite content with just sitting around and letting it happen. There is a very small vocal minority of Muslims, most of which live in the West, that do denounce it, but it's not enough. Even then, far too many Muslims who live in the West are radicals. This is particularly true in Britain and other European countries.

                            So coming back to Liberals, even though not all of them defend Islam, many do. And it's certainly not a matter of defending religious freedom or being accepting of all religions, because the Liberals that defend Islam are the most intolerant and racism scum that have ever walked on the planet. They claim to be for rights and freedoms, yet they try to erase all traces of Christianity from society while accusing Conservatives of being intolerant of Muslims. Conservatives invented religious freedom, f, we invented freedom period. Freedom did not exist in Western Society until we decided that all men should be free from tyranny and have individual rights.
                            A wild liberal appears! Conservative uses logical reasoning and empirical evidence! It's super effective! Wild liberal faints.

                              It is, the Danes tried it and Muslims freaked out. Meanwhile Family Guy is poking fun of Christianity and me and my religious friends can watch it together and laugh.

                                The Danish cartoons were that offensive, in my opinion, as what as been said about Christians here in the Western world.



                                The web-comic Jesus and Mo and a few South Park episodes are the only examples I can recall that have actually lampooned Islam in a critical way.
