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 .

  • Ancient wrecks found in Black Sea

    On the BBC this morning an expedition plotting the deep sea bed in the Black Sea has revealed that its robotic submersibles have located many wrecks. These date from the 19th century to about 500BC and include Greek, Roman and Byzantine vessels. Because the deep waters of the Black Sea contain no oxygen and are also very cold organic material such as wood tends to be preserved and the scientists involved have reported that many vessels still have masts and describe seeing steering oars still attached. Essentially they are still intact.

    However it is feared that by now they will have little physical strength and any attempt to raise them from the still dead water in which they lie would cause them to disintegrate. Instead it is suggested that robotic vehicles are used to explore them in situ and record them in digital form so that they can be recreated in virtual reality

    A little more detail here plus photogrammetric images (explained at end of article):

    I'm looking forward to see more images and further exploration of these.

        Interestingly Adams was saying on the BBC that similar conditions also exist in parts of the Baltic but nowhere else in the world.
