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 .

    I am not sure about exact version though, but the one captured by Poles looks very similar.
    Looks like you got it Vathra.

    So allow me to try another contribution.

        It's bigger and older than that.

                I thought it would be a easy one. Here are the various markings on it.

                      Hmm... a 15 kilo projectile translates to 40 rpm. What were the projectile weights of the cannon with high RoF?

                        It would be enough to say the gun was made to have RoF of French 75, although with heavier shell.

                        • A lot of options for 105mm weapons tho I recall a 120mm cannon. Possible but not likely it was a 155mm with 40+ kilo projectiles.

                            Well, French 75 had RoF around 15 RPM, and 600+/15 gives more than 40kg, so it is very likely that mistery gun was 155mm.

                                Yes, it is Bulgarian MT-LB, with 120mm mortar, Tundzha is the vehicle's name.
                                Bulgarian produced lot of MT-LB, in different versions.

                                  Hate speech laws and arbitrary enforcement of laws seem to be the norm in Europe now. Are "socialist" countries unavoidably totalitarian?
