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 .

    Is the Kearsage slated to assist in any recovery efforts if Nate makes landfall?

They used to take the old aircraft carriers offline for a two year SLEP. The sailors helped and got to see their wives and family. The Air Wing went ashore and practiced operating from land.

      The last twenty or so years the Navy has passed on big maintenance rebuilds and just used the ships until they were falling apart. Look at how they let the OH Perry Class run until they were falling apart.

      New ships are sexy, rebuilding older ships is not.

      Thank you Mr Rumsfeld for helping this trend along.

      This leads to a second readiness issue beyond decommissioning. As the down time rises from maintenance issues training time decreases. The result is less capability than there should be given the equipment on hand. On paper the USN Gator Fleet should b enough float MEF of a division/air wing plus. That proobabllycould happen given 4-8 months to play catch up in repairs. Training is a different matter. For effective large sale training the Navy crews and Marines have to be at sea en mass. For the past decade I've seen multiple warnings and complaints from the active duty side, and the 'experts' and journalists about how the training has fallen off. A very recent article in the marine Times questioned the ability of the amphi forces (Navy/Marine) to conduct a effective MEF or even MEB size operation with less than six months preparation, including remedial training at the command/staff level. The ability of achieving the intense degree of staff work and tactical/operational coordination essential is questioned.
