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 .

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.

        Napoleon's Dream by Mark Churms.

        "French domination of Europe could never be assured without Britains defeat. Had he defeated Russia, Napoleon may have been able to launch an invasion of England in 1813. Using American designed paddle steamers".
        Well observed PC, I clearly see the chimney and paddle wheel.
        Pity for Napoleon, but France in 1813 was not advanced enough to harness steam power in this way, though the technology was there in Britain and the US. Crossing the Channel using steamboats remains a dream.

                "Hougoumont" by Robert Gibb.

                The small Chateau of Hougoumont stood before the extreme right of the Allied position at Waterloo. Napoleon planned to draw Wellington's reserve to the Allied right flank in defence of Hougoumont and then attack through the centre left of the British and allies front near La Haye Sainte. The Duke of Wellington formed the view that the Chateau was the key to his flank and garrisoned it with the light companies of the Coldstream ( 2nd Foot Guards ) and 3rd Foot Guards ( Nassauers, Hanoverians, Brunswickers, KGL and British Guards held the woods around the Hougoumont Chateau ). Wellington had placed Lieutenant-Colonel James MacDonell of the Coldstream Guards in charge at Hougoumont, with the words "defend the post to the last extremity". This MacDonell certainly did and Hougoumont was not taken in nearly nine hours of continuous fighting.
                The battle of Waterloo started with a furious attack upon Hougoumont. This first attack failed and it set a pattern for the rest of the day. The French next attacked to the west of the farm, where the open ground was held by the 3rd Foot Guards. They were overwhelmed and forced to retire through the North Gate pursued by the French. Hougoumont nearly fell when a determined attack by Sous-Lieutenant Legros - nicknamed "L'Enforceur" or "The Smasher" - wielding a huge sappers axe, managed to break through the gate ( see picture ). Despite trying to shut the gate, 30 Frenchmen forced their way through. Lieutenant-Colonel MacDonell called on three Coldstream officers to help him close the gate, they were joined by Cpl. James Graham and his brother Joseph, also a Corporal, and four men from the 3rd Foot Guards. Between them they managed to close the North Gate and secure it. All of the Frenchmen who entered, apart from a young drummer boy, were killed in a desperate hand to hand fight.
                I bought this print when I was at Waterloo. It's always been my favorite for the emotion is conveys.

                OT: You can still see the poc marks from musket balls in the walls of Hougoumont.
                If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                  "Battle of Jena, 1806". Depicting Napoleon reviewing the French Imperial Guard at the battle of Jena.

                  There is one amusing story about the picture of Napoleon reviewing the Imperial Guard at Jena. The Guardman in the second row couldn't contain himself from raising his head and cheering at the emperor apparantly being told to contain himself by Napoleon

                    I'm a bit fed up. I found some wonderfull pics of the Spanish army under Romana in Hamburg, but my limited IT knowledge doesn't allow me to load them.

                    For anyone interested in prints by Knotel I recommend:
