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 .

    Where did you take them? Musee militaire in Paris?

      I do believe that the officers shako had a square cut peak that could be folded up against the body of the head dress. And the officers sometimes wore a pelisse, a garment of the light cavalry.

        Those pictures were taken in the Musée de L'Armée ( French Army Museum ) and the Musée de L'Empéri in Salon-de-Provence, France. Actually, I didn't take those pictures. I found them here:

          Can you post some pics of Napoleon's Polish Lancers for me? Mine disappeared for some reason.

            I hope nobody minds me making a request here. A long time ago got to visit Paris and remember seeing one of the displays of Arab on horseback. Seem to recall as being from Napoleonic era. Now assuming from Egyptian campaign. I thought it was a rather exotic look. The thing that really stuck with me was he was wearing extremely long spurs. Wouldn't want to be that horse getting them in the ribs.

            Is any familiar with this display and would you have links or photos?

            Thanks.

              The German Military police used gorgets in WWII. I think that started with Romans, no?

                Bill!.... Bill!!! You bleedin' philistine you!!!

                That's a peak, that's wot that is! If you look at Major Sharpe Mk.I you'll glean that the bill on his titfer is folded up.

                Is not lost in darkness

                And athwart the seas
                Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                Unquenchable forever.

                        Dutch subaltern officers on barracks guard duty still wear gorgets! Probably it still happens in other European armies as well. IIRC somewhere I have a picture of myself on barracks guard duty wearing a gorget which I will try to find and post...
