• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • I've had it made known to me that for about a week now people haven't been able to finish registering or receive email notifications. I can imagine how frustrating this must have been, particulary for our newest members. Unfortunately our site owner is away at the moment and he most likely won't be able to do anything about it for another week or so. Until then, anyone who wants their account manually verified can contact me via their method of preference and I'll sort it for them myself. Thanks to everyone for their patience regarding this issue. -DoubleThink

  • Emails should hopefully be fixed, please let us know if they're working properly now.

One thing that bugs me about the similies right now is that they all have those annoying anti-alias halos. You should get rid of the anti-aliasing, and have them just have rough edges, so there wouldn't be the halos.

Yeah, not sure what you mean, but I think we should get some new cooler smilies.

There were these weapon-like icons originally in place of 4 of the smilies (The Page, Thumbs Up, Arrow, & Exclamation Sign) but they vanished when the upgrade occured.

You can see one of them (The Page replacement) in the upper left corner of my Dimenofff mockup, but that's the only one I saved... They gave this forum some diversity, but unless I knew the source they came from, only the original Admins can possibly find them.

I'm probably outnumbered by who doesn't want them back, but it'd solve part of the problem here, wouldn't it?

I mean if you look closely, you can see little white circles around all of the smilies, it makes the forum look really unprofessional.

It depends on what color you see the forum in.

A new set of smilies would be all the better. Not more, just a new set.

Yeah, a new set would be a lot better then just upgrading the ones we already have.

Wouldn't a new set mean exactly that?
