I am sorry I didn't get a chance to welcome each and every one of you. Aside from work being murder, I've been also working under the hood for some more basic requests. * While I try to find a solution of appending Private Messages (PM's) I've increased the amount of messages one can hold in their private box from 70 to 200. * Unbeknown to many, many of our international members are paying quite a lot to even come here. What I am doing is trying to implement a very complex system (under the hood that is) which will enable anyone who is a member to reply, post, and answer TO this forum, target section, and thread via email. I am not even sure how close I am to finishing it but with many additions the greatest fear is to screw up existing functions. * I will start working on the "default" theme, since many expressed their interest in it. I will need some graphics help since the banner seems to be all screwed up. * A new version of forum's engine will be rolling out in January. I've been beta testing it for quite a long time and think they have a solid product already. For that reason, I've decided to migrate to vB3 as soon as it's available for download. It has too many things to list as far as functionality, ease of use, and power. ---That's WiP under the hood. As for the forum itself. * Will be opening up a poll for the name of the new forum which will be much more "free" and graphic than anything this forum has ever had in the past. More details to come as the brainstorming is still being applied by many people. Once the forum is named, I will be seeking legal advice and applying a system of entry for the forum. We should have a grand opening before the traditional family holiday of Thanksgiving. Oh and the thanks we will be uttering... As I've said early on, folks, this is YOUR forum, not anyone else's. If there's something you wish to see, post a suggestion of send me a private message. If you are a female, please send me a phone... Sorry, don't know what came over me there... But in all seriousness, the more suggestions, the more functionalities and the more people will feel at ease using this forum, replying, and getting involved. Once again, thank you all for giving us a chance.
