    Exclamation Upgrade Notice

    Folks --

    We've upgraded to a new bulletin board package. There are many reasons for this, but the primary ones are reliability and scalability.

    All users + posts have successfully come over.

    Here's what didnt:
    - Private messages
    - Avatar settings (you'll need to reselect your avatar...they are all still there)

    Anyway, comments / suggestions are welcome.

    Nifty!
    I did have a little problem, on my account before, my Username used to log in was different from my forum display name, so now i have to log in using my display name instead of my user name, but its all good now. I just noticed in the profile settings that they got switched around.

    How do you select an avatar? I can't seem to find them on here. I looked on my profile and everything and I still couldn't find it.

    you go to the User CP, then on the left-hand side of the screen, there is a "Edit Avatar" link. follow the directions in there, and youre all set

    To answer your first question, I am not sure. I cant find anywhere in the options to use a custom one. And to answer your second question, the Quick reply button is in the bottom right corner of a post, and its the farthest icon to the right, by Quote. it has a piece of paper with a pencil on it. It looks like this:

    Hmm, we'll check that out ASAP. That should certainly be allowed.

    Yeah, I miss my own avatar

    Oh, and I see that the upgrade restored a good many of my old posts that got lost a year or so ago when there was some data corruption! Thank You!

    Other than that, it looks pretty good! I just have to get used to it and redo my shortcut.

    I like the new format. It seems more user friendly.
