    No idea who runs the site tbh, but new layout/design is excellent. Much more fresh!

    We only know that there is two of them and they live a Howard Hughes type existence being looked after by a religious sect sworn to secrecy in a castle in the Lechtaler Alps in Bavaria....I've probably said too much :shutup2:

    If any bugs are spotted can you do a screenshot and post here but give it two days for fine tuning.

    I think the links is the result of SEO not having been run yet.

    Give it a day of so and see if it updates when the SEO is refreshed

    Because you are special.lol

    More likely, you have something else selected in your profile as the style chooser has gone.
    It's kinda red and black wide style now

    The wide screen is much better aswell, hated that $hite on the right hand side before, never used it at all!

    So the site will eventually be red and black? Looks good as is, will see how it goes with black, sounds good thou!

    FFS Are you still fixing it?If not why bugger around with something that was fine (again).To say it is insipid is an understatement.Just like the management at my firm.Obviously got nothing better to do than change for the sake of change.

    There is more to it than that. Functionality has always been a compromise. This time we are hoping for a more permenant solution with some extra features you all might enjoy, with stabilty to boot

    im sure there is,but why change the skin?I aint keen on the washed out look, the ochre coloured text of the last poster on a thread, the pale red bars...i thought my graphics card was playing up.Im also sure that a change of colour has no bearing on stability issues.Change the functionality etc by all means, but leave the skin alone.An 'extra feature' that would be great is to have a selection of skins to choose from.
    @FranA3, Im glad you and others like it, but im fu%$"d off with so many parts of my existance that 'change' for the sake of it that its driving me mental.This site was the last straw after firefox updated to 4.0 which also changed its appearance.Ill go and sit in the corner for a while i think

    The skin we had was adapted to suit and withe the recent update. just wouldnt work correctly. My chosen skin / sylte of grey folio black is still working.

    The thanks are stored in a DB, but again the add on wouldn't interface with the update, so many things are happening behind the scenes to try and set it back up with no loss of current thanks. Other wise we will all have to start again

    Hi there Just so you all know we are testing the SEO and there is a bug in the IE version. I hope to have a solution in the next hour or so.

    Many thanks
