As you can see the site has had a bit of an overhaul. There are still a few adjustments to be made, but if you find anything that doesn't work as expected please post in the Helpdesk so we can look into it.

So far, I like it! You've done a ton of work here! Cheers!

EDIT:Spack, is there a listing of what the icons on the forum pages mean? The locked one I figured out, but the rest have me stumped.

TW, I'm going to put together a list of icons and what they mean shortly. I don't actually know what they all are, but I can figure them out from the filenames ;)

*insert generic rant representing natural human tendency to resist change*

The design is a bit 8O to get used to, but I find the posts themselves much more eye-friendly :)

This is true, i've never really liked black backgrounds.

Once I found the New Posts page to bookmark, everything became very clear.

Another small tweak added - the site now automatically switches daylight savings as needed. Was I the only one who noticed the forum times were 1 hour off? :(
