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 .

        The repetition of affirmations leads to belief. Once that belief becomes a deep conviction, you better wake up and look at the facts.

            I cannot see that, unless you advise us to buy yet another book.

            • I really don't think that is a AA. Looks a little . . . non-AA-ish.

                      • Well, what you can tell right off is:

                        It's an AA gun.
                        It's design indicates between 1918 and 1930 roughly.
                        It's between 3" and 4.7" in size
                        It normally has a gun shield (note the mounting points at the front of the carriage.

                            Good gawd, that ... that make me think of one of the movies I saw way back when. It featured a really big cannon that the Brits sent to Spain to help liberate them from Napoleon. It was a real wall-breaker, and this makes me wonder if it was a 24-pounder or more like a 32 pounder. Looking at that pic, I think the later.

                            It is a poor shot, but I will guess at this is a US 3" like the ones that defended Corregidor.

                            • The older one above, looks like a Spanish or French 18th Century 24 pdr, maybe a 32. I'd put it at mid to late 18th century.

                              The pedestal mount AA gun looks like a Bofors design.

                              • The second gun might be a variant of the Bofors 75mm AA in the form of the KNIL Siderius variant.
