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 .

  • History of the Electoral College

    So at the founding of the Constitution the Founding Fathers decided electors would be chosen by state legislatures, but as time went on more and more states gave this elective power to the voter.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of a site that gives a timeline of how states popularized the electoral college. For example, on what dates did states decide to give average citizens the right to choose electors?

    Wikipedia has a good chart that covers the early transitions by state on how states selected delegates to the electoral college. If I remember correctly it does not cover when Maine and Nebraska changed to their current system.

    I ran across it when I was trying to remember what election was determined by a vote of the House of Representatives.
