Because of the need to get a new forum up and running quickly, there have been some design and customization left undone. This will be a work in progress so don't be surprised if the colors change from minute to minute. We're trying several different themes and css style changes.
You won't find many changes from the old forum regarding features. You still have private messaging, spell check, many posting options, collapsible folders, signatures, smileys, etc. In fact, I believe notifying the moderators of a problem post is easier in this forum application.
You'll also notice this forum allows "child" boards (see in Off Topic/Ehellion Meet and Greets for an example). If you have a great idea for splitting a folder into separate folders or creating "child" folders, please make those suggestions asap to this thread.
I had time with the other forum to test and get familiar with it all. However, I don't have that luxury this time so some permissions have not been enabled yet but probably will be. Just be patient while we get our sea legs here. If you notice a glitch, let me know.
I know this is frustrating but imagine how I feel!
