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 .

    My uncle enlisted at 15 got found out at 16 and had to go home until he turned 17. Month later ol' Kim the First decided to tour the ROK with an army, and my uncle found himself shipping out a month after that. The following month he was in combat in the Pusan Perimeter. He was only a cook at that point (but being 17 years old), but at one point things were bad and they went to the REMFs and asked for volunteers. He did; no one else though. So he is out on the line with an M1919, the NK's attack and through back his company (Love 38th) and he stayed behind and covered the "withdrawal." When he ran out of ammunition he made his way back a couple miles through enemy held territory until he reached UN lines. That is basically what the citation (Bronze Star w/ V clasp) reads. The only time my uncle mentioned anything to family he put thusly, "when the last belt went through the gun...if there was anyone alive down there all they saw were the heels of my boots." He never talked about what he did, especially silent on the Ch'ong Ch'on (just told people to read SLA Marshall's "The River and the Gauntlet."

    I find that most combat vets do not talk about combat. My uncle did not. My grandfather, other side, NEVER talked about WWI though he talked often about WWII (if persuaded). Dad and my uncle's dad was on a DE in the North Atlantic. He told me about the one time they nearly got a sub, but it got away. He never mentioned (as I was to learn later) that the sub torpedoed the sister ship which his was operating.

      According to dad when Korea started he panicked and tried to find out what his reserve commitment was. Slept a lot easier when he found out that the Chinese would have to reach the Rhine before the British army wanted him back.

      He'd already done world war two.

          Credo quia absurdum.

          Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
