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.

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 .

    I am so sorry to hear this news, Ben Weider was a great man and I know he will be sorely missed.

                        Re: Ben

                        I had come in contact with both Ben and Joe in a bodybuilding context but when Ben found that I wasn't just a bodybuilding judge but actually had a grasp of history, we became fast friends, despite the difference in our ages.

                        He was always 25 years younger that his chronoligical age and he also introduced me to a few Montreal restaurants that I had somehow missed.

                        My condolences to Joe and all the family...he was a great man!

                          I don't know his full influence, but from what I have seen, his contributions to the field of military history have been remarkable, at the least. My greatest condolences for you and yours, Eric.
