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.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

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 .

      Boy, lots of great stuff here. I think the painting of the Rifles at Corunna is really good among many others

                  Napoleon and steamboats

                  Well observed and makes one wonder, but I don't think it is historically possible in the sense that Napoleon and French sea going steamboats were contemporaneous.
                  IIRC in Britain the Industrial Revolution (IR) had just taken off by the time Napoleon was considering a cross-Channel invasion (around 1800) and steam engines were used in Britain including in boats (but not in the Royal Navy).
                  In spite of all the brilliance of Napoleonic France the IR occur ed much later and France was much slower off the mark in the employment of steam power.

                  But then of course this painting is called: 'Napoleon's dream'.
                  It makes you wonder what would have happened during the Napoleonic naval battles where the wind gauge played such an important role, had the French developed steamships. I wouldn't rule out an invasion like the one depicted here.

                    I always loved the one by David with Napoleon on the rearing horse. Recently, however, my guy took me on this crazy couples campout crusade in which we had to force march in the freezing rain with heavy packs just to get to the dang camp site. Along with the other couples, I swear we looked like Napoleon's retreat from Moscow.

                      Nope I think it is just a standard 32ish gun ship fireing a broadside. The smoke is probably where it suffered some damage.

                          Unfortunately internet can't reproduce its impact - it is really huge - people are depicted in their real size or even more sometimes!
                          Impresive, thanks for link.

                          There is panoramic painting by Kossak, Styka and others. It shows victorius battle of Raclawice during Kosciuszko Insurection 1794 against Russian.

                            That's what I was thinking too.

                              If you look hard, you can see a chimney stack and what looks like a paddle wheel, look at the smoke just behind Napoleon's head.

                              Went to Churms site.
