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 .

        It sometimes happens that fires run amok in the flavelas. The survivors rebuild.

          I'm thinking along the line of building pressurized inflatable greenhouses for growing algae and other basic food products as well as to convert the CO2 that is abundant in Mars thin atmosphere to oxygen.

              Perhaps moving on is our best hope. There appears to be an internationally recognized 'human right' to maintain whatever screwed up culture you were born into. One way to 'advance' would be to move out to new territory leaving behind as much of our cultural baggage as possible.

              Perhaps one day, some zealous fools will finally push the button and turn our nice blue planet into a radioactive graveyard. And on that day it might be good if the descendants of mankind could look back at our dead planet and at least shed a tear and say, 'we tried to tell them'.
              Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

                Yes we should, but let's get this mess fixed first. When that's done, I'll volunteer me and my shovel to go fix up Mars for living.

                      Whether we eventually terraform Mars or not, one reason for going there could to check out Phobos and see why it's hollow ..

                      Here's an article from earlier when first indications appeared that Phobos might be hollow;

                        Hollow? Why have I never heard of that theory? From all recent observations I've read, Phobos is a rubble pile and/or pourous asteroid, not hollow.

                        Would be neat (or, effing exciting) if it were, and if it were artificial, but currently that's not what is indicated.

                          A certain over-the-hill astronaut espouses that theory.

                            ...dammit.

                            Here's a thought, what if it IS proven to be artifical? What happens after that?

                              Well, it would prove there is/was intelligent life somewhere in the Universe.

                                As if, personally, I need that kind of proof...but you're mostly right. It would prove that there WAS life, that it MAY still exist, and that it MAY or MAY NOT have been from or has visited Mars in the past--at least.

                                But what could we do about this pretend artificial artifact in a decaying orbit over Mars? Would there be a flood of robots to study it? Get inside of it? Would we push the schedule up to get a manned mission to it? Would we tow it back to Earth? Save it from its fate?
