    Now that I have access to a PC, there's some serious maintenance that needs to be done to the site, including upgrades to the software. Not going to do it today, but definitely need to work on the site within the next few days. Will take some time to determine everything that needs to be done, but once the list is completed, I'll announce when I'll be doing the work.

    I know this is just me being a whiny-ass, but once the upgrades are done, can you restore the front page that we used to have, a version or so ago? The one with online users, birthdays, etc....

    Not sure what I'm going to do with that. Rumor has it that Version 4 will have something like this included as part of the basic package, making it a LOT easier to create a portal page.

    I'll most likely toss it back in there, but keep in mind, it's not going to be at the top of my priority list once I start the upgrade. Broken features within the forum will get full attention first.

    Today's the day. I'll give about 15-30 minutes notice before I shut the forum down. Initial upgrade shouldn't take more than a few minutes and then forum will be turned back on. After that, I'll be working on getting the "goodies" installed.

    Jeez! That's a sweet-ass looking logo, and the new appearance is really shaping up! Most excellent :)

    Other than the PoM stuff, I think I pretty much have stuff back to normal. If you find something that isn't working quite right, post it here. Thanks....

    No offense to whomever created it, but it doesn't fit with the minimalist theme we've had for ages.

    The image was already on the server and I tossed the URL in as a place holder. I'll try to find the other image we were using.

    I'd like to thank you for your work. I've had recent occasion to administrate several sites (running SMF) and I've gained a new appreciation for the tightrope that an admin must walk to keep the site up to date and yet not lose any posts, PMs or other data. It's damned hard, it's hard work, and it takes a very expert person to do it all and not f*** it up. Thanks!

    And I've noticed a new return to an appreciated feature. It seems that now you can see a distinct thread icon that signifies topics that you've posted in. I had actually given up on ever having this feature back. It's nice to see that the vB authors decided to bring it back.

    Again, thank you for your hard work! :)

    We had that before, along with a highlight color in the search listing. That is, if you used "New Posts," threads you posted in were highlighted in yellow, I think, as opposed to the blue shade for all the others.
