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.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

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 .

  • Winter military training

    I don't know exactly what country's military exercise is the most toughest but I guess Korea could be listed in top 10.

    Yesterday, I watched the news about the winter training of Korean special forces. Their training was broadcasted in China too. It is said that They're going to train for 9 days in a tactical training facility and to learn how to survive in severe cold.

    I was quite impressed when I saw that they dived into the river crashing the river ice and put the snow into their naked bodies briskly. They looked so enthusiastic.

    The Norwegians have perfected winter warfare.

    My worst jump story:
    My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
    As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
    No lie.

      It's mostly about mental attitude.

      Personnaly, I feel quite at ease operating in -45 Celsius weather in an Arctic environment, rather then being stuck in 50 Celsius humid jungle full of mosquitoes (been there and done that, in both cases.)

      Both environment have their challenges, but I rather be in an environment that I may dress in layers to keep warm and fire up the stove/campfire to heat water/snow to have a hot drink (in a very humid climate such as a jungle, there is only so much you can take off your body to keep cool, and its not that simple to fire up a fridge to have a cold drink in an austere environment!)

      Now find me a pair of ice skates, a hockey stick and a puck, and I may just forget how cold it really is.

        Why go to Norway when you can go to Alaska? You can see Russia from both places.
