Over this 3-Day weekend I will attempt to upgrade to the latest version of this Forum software available from the vendor.

What this means or what happens because of it, I cannot say. Posts may be lost. Cats and Dogs may live together. Destruction on a Biblical scale may occur.

All I know is I'm going to try.

For those who wish to repent before the Rapture begins, I will be performing readings from the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe from 8.00 - 9.00 AM tomorrow.

A possible Rapture?

The Mod team will probably survive. :blush:

Interesting maintenence going on. Don't know about everybody else, but lurking on the boards while logged out is impossible for me right now.

I'm not really sure how there's still hundreds of guests right now.

EDIT: Make that dozens of guests now, heh.

It's also been awhile since I've seen the "You've caught us at a bad time" screen, heh. :blush:

AAAAAAH! IT ALL LOOKS SO DIFFERENT! Also, I seem to have reverted to an avatar I haven't used in years. o.o Looks pretty nice, though.

First impression: I don't like the new look of the forum. I like the new addition of the IP Chat though.

I like it. Similar to the old classic blue theme before this or at least similar enough for me. Keep up the great work serge. Appreciate it.

Well...it's interesting. One thing I noticed, my computer doesn't load up the comments on the Battles page with the new Forum. Not a big deal though, since I just went to the Battles page on the Forum and commented there.

The new visual look of the forum looks interesting, my first reaction is that I don't like it, but I'll give it some time to see if it grows on me.

Though there is one feature that looks to have vanished which i dislike immensely.

I can't see which threads I've already looked through, and which ones have new posts, I have to check the time of the last post and remember the last time I checked the thread, which when you're looking at several different threads at a time, can be quite a chore to remember.

And finally my spellchecker doesn't work in the reply slot, which also is a major fail.

Moved my interests to my About Me page. I advise others with long interest sections to possibly do the same. *Looks at AvP* :unsure:

:P

DamagEdit: Hey, Kain? There are little blue dots next to each topic. They go away after you read it. Go into a Forum section and mark it as read, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Maintenance will be going on through monday. There is a lot more that needs to be done to make the site functional. So, just a heads up.

There's some other features besides the Chat thingy. The Blog part has been updated and now there is some Gallery thing I'm not too clear on yet. And a Calendar.

Oh come on, you know you love it.

But seriously though, there will be different "Skins" you can choose from. Right now there's only a couple but I will be adding more. Down at the very bottom of the forum, find the "Change Theme" widget. Use that to change the Skin. I happen to like this one, but I know I'm in the minority. So there will be others.

Also, the battles forum will have it's own special Skin like before.

As I mentioned, this will be going on all weekend.
