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 .

    I have to say that using 110 methods to kill people only shows the wasteful nature of imperialist capitalism. Surely it would have made sense to rationalise onto the scientific socialist path of picking three or four winners and sticking with them?

    When will you imperialist ever learn?
    What would Occam say?

      I don't know about 100 killing methods, but it is true American B-29 bombers obliterated every city in North Korea until there was almost nothing of economic or military value left standing. Carpet bombing methods were used, as it was customary in those days. Much of the urban population of North Korea was wiped out.
      Monster Zero, first, there wasn't much of an urban population in North Korea in 1950. Now, the North was, relatively speaking, the more industrial half, thanks to the Japanese, but Korea as a whole was largely rural. Second, between 1945 and 1948 there was a shift of population between North and South, as well as between Korean residents of Japan to the North and South, as ideological lines between the emerging Koreas jelled. Much of this manpower lived on the margins of the cities, and went into the two Korean armies and their auxiliaries prior to hostilities. Third, except for some port cities on the east and south coasts and Taegu, the great majority of Korea's population was concentrated in a series of narrow plains on or near the West Coast that ran from Pyongyang down through Seoul to Pyongtaek and south. This was the axis on which most of the fighting took place during the North Korean invasion. Again, the cities were rather small affairs and not what the USAF had seen in the European or Pacific wars. But, since they were important to Koreans, needless to say a very great amount of damage was done by the two Korean Armies before the U.N. forces ever got into the war.

      I believe the 'carpet bombing' you refer too relates to U.N.C. attempts to keep the rail lines cut and impede North Korean logistics after Chinese intervention. Now, by war's end, the North Koreans had rebuilt their armed forces, and developed a logistical support for armies in the field based upon massed manpower carrying 80 pound loads. (The South used one similar, titled the Korean Service Corps). By the Armistice, the North Korean Army and logistics were at a point where they could conduct a Corps level attack, be repulsed, and still move the rations and war material to sustain a corps level counterattack.

      If your assertion was accurate, the North Koreans would not have been able to sustain the additional two years of war effort that they did.

              Gotta feel bad for the Koreans. A lot of their people know the bullsh!t their government feeds them is lies, but if they say anything or do anything...

              As much as I'm against civilian killing in war time, the DPRK did have it coming. There really was no excuse to invade South Korea. I mean, there were claims they intentionally mixed their civilian populace into bigger industrial centers in order to keep bombings hesitant, so I don't know who's worse, the bombers or the guys who put the targets up.
