hi all,

Just to let you know we have finally upgraded the forum from SMF1 to SMF2.

Sorry for downtime, hopefully the upgrade process didn't cause too many sad people.

They will be back. We are using the default skin at the moment as rushed to just get the site online and Yoc and I not customized anything yet.

Hi gang,
Yes, it's early days here with the new forum.  I know it looks pretty strange without some of the old features but in time we will be adding some back and trying out some new things here.

The karma stuff was something the old GAC site used and eventually abandoned the idea when some took it a little too seriously.  We will see how it goes but if needed we will turn it off again.

Thumbs up Captain DJ, great job.
I know how much code work can wear you down. I like the look, very clean and easy to use.  Look forward to seeing the banners again and any other nice items you dream up.  Thanks for all of the work going into the forum.

I like the color scheme of the new forum. hope that remains an option even in settings/preferences even if you change the default?

Is it my imagination, or isn't the message text smaller than the old version?

Quite a shock when the new version came up unannounced. That I noticed, anyway.  :o

I believe there are some SMF forum addons that will allow you to choose your colour scheme.  Wouldn't surprise me if you can set your text size as well somewhere.

We aren't done by a long shot on this.  We've put off jumping to ver2 for a loooong time and there's a lot of things to sort and consider.

Yep, the text is a bit smaller then it was on the old forum. I'll have to search around and see if I can find where it's at, besides the message area.
Looking great so far.

Cap is the download site going to change it's format to?

Not planned right now.

Forum look is default theme from SMF version 2 so this is reason forum looks different than old look.
