This was what you'd call a "happy accident". My goal was to upgrade a second copy of the site and tease you all with screen caps of some of the new features. So much for being cynical.

I still have some work to do in the meantime, so the site may blink once in a while today. But in the meantime, enjoy.

Well I'll have to build the skins over again, but in the meantime the default banner now matches the new look.

Yeah, sorry about that. The IPB 3 skin templates are completely different and our old skins didn't convert over. I'm trying to figure out the new skin templates so I can change some colors around.

I like the new Fast Reply box. Saves me a click. :D

However, as of right now "quote" boxes aren't quite there yet. Instead of being separated off in replies like before, they just look like the rest of the body of text now.

Probably just one of those kinks that needs ironing out though.

It's only for older posts.

I'm a bit concerned about the 'rep points' function. I know this isn't a gaming forum, but you'd be amazed how some people can get angry over a little coloured box with an integer inside of it. It calls to mind the 'Great Rep War' of '08 at a gaming forum I used to belong to. Posts were made. PM's were sent. Profile's were raged in. Ego's were bruised. :P

Looks modern. Lots of white space and faded colors. Such is common with the prevalent web design style.

I'm kinda glad there isn't a "GoogleBot" post at the bottom of every thread anymore.

There's a new format to the RSS feed and so far I can't read any of the new stuff via RSS (although it shows up in my reader). This problem may be on my end though.

I know a lot of members used the view new posts where it lists all the new posts. How would they do that with the new software?

I"m glad it's updated and all, but I can't stand the new skin.

Actually I wish I could still use the old one before the brand-themed ones.

GoogleBot was renamed Tipjar and is still there at the end of the thread.

I haven't even begun to play with the RSS feed settings yet
