Yeah, so we upgraded to the latest phpBB. Everything should work as before, but if something is messed up, please let us know.

Excuse Nat's head, the dimensions for the banner are a pain in the ass and we may improve that soon.

Have fun.

Dude you should warn when you change the layout; it’s like when you open a door and you didn’t expect someone to be right behind it :mrgreen:

I promise I won’t make a comment on that picture.

The layout's going to take some getting used to, but hopefully it's protected from scriptkiddies now.

I'm still trying to figure out where everything is, but I love the new look. (The cyan kind of makes my eyes hurt and doesn't match with the blue, but that's just an aesthetic gripe.)

Do you keep your browser window small? I see this spillover for larger avatars if my browser window is less than 1200px wide.

hmmm....I'm browsing with my netbook, maybe that's why. I'll take a look at the forums later on in a regular desktop pc.

A little bit of feedback, after my troll about the picture (but I’m sure you expected it ;)): the “Re: topic title” at the beginning of every message is annoying; I really like the layout overall; I think the banner is too blue; I love the new font, the typographic apostrophe I use and the quotation marks look great.

I was quite used to phpBB and did some customization in phpBB2 but I'm a total noob at phpBB3. But we had to get the latest version in order to get rid of these sql injections and stuff.

I'll get on getting a standard blue color when I get the time and look into what I can do with the logo, Rachel did a nice one that just won't show properly so gonna need to reverse enginner how the logo is displayed here.

Regarding the "RE: Topic title", that's always displayed in all boards that I've been on.. I think.. because you should be able to edit the subject at any point in the thread without changing the subject on the posts before that?...

I don’t see it everywhere. Not that loud at least; I don’t understand why we would need it? The title is visible at the top of the page. I’ve never seen a subject edited inside a thread…

“By x » Sat Jun 25, 2011 12:00 am” could be replaced by the date only, since the author is already visible on the left.

Not that it matters to anyone else but the admin side of things is like a million times better. It's like going from DOS to Windows 7. Banning someone (let's just say DavidK for example) has never been easier!
