    Seems solid. Nice look.

    Dude, I’ve got so much shit to do it’s unreal. I’m not really even started yet. Spent all morning getting the old plugins that didn’t work out of the system and getting the new forum controls installed.

    The big fuckup was when we started. We used mostly pages to do things. (Shit man, we’re all old, that’s how it was always done.) So now that everything is working I need to convert all those old pages to posts and get that sorted, figure out what graphics we’re going to use for shit like the header and icons and get those installed, start setting images for post previews…

    It’s a fucking shit-ton man. But it is really a quantum leap over what we were working with. Fucking HUGE.

    Going to be Kewl, when everything gets hammered out and all… 🙂

    Changing with the times.

    I actually don’t like it. I much preferred the simpler, older design. I especially hate the backgrounds moving separately as I scroll up and down. Can’t stand it when sites do that.

    Here’s where I am:

    Most of the heavy lifting is done. All the old pages have been converted to posts and everything is reorganized by post category and that all links automatically. (Something that the old template could never fucking do.)

    I’ve switched from a meta to an SEO system so I’ve hot a shit ton of work to do to sort that out. (No more manually entering tags in pages. Yea!)

    I’m rapidly becoming a non-fan of the orange. To me it’s just too fucking loud. I sort of liked the old white and red better. (Sorry Gomez and Zeedox)) More input on that would help me pull the trigger.

    The scrolling shit came that way. I’m not a big fan of it either. I’m sure there’s a way to disable that but I’ve not bothered actually fucking with any template settings other than color.

    I haven’t touched the forum other than putting in all the new post controls. (Seriously…it’s light years better than it was.) It’s not on my priority list at the moment to fuck with it beyond that. I’ll get to it eventually.

    Keep the feedback coming. Believe it or not I’m not THAT big an asshole that never listens to feedback.

    Edit to add: Scrolling fixed, bitches! 😉

    This looks good, but I have no problem with white and red also. I was just commenting on the colours I’d seen.

    I like this as well. I like the single row of stories better than the multiple rows as well. Looks a whole lot less busy and chaotic.

    Thanks for fixing that scroll thing. That’s annoying as hell. I use both a laptop and a desktop – on the desktop it was no big deal because I could see the entire length of the side bars as I scrolled, but on my laptop I would have to actually scroll down to the bottom of the site before the side bars would move down to where I could see the rest of the content in them.

    I primarily use the side bars to see what’s going on, so that was a real pain in the neck. Glad that’s gone.

    Other than that, I really like how it looks. Now, if the forum was easier to read…
