Well, another year, another forum upgrade. This is Invision Power Board 3.0 which I think is one of the best forum apps you can get nowadays.

Loads of new features, and a new look - not sure if I like it yet, let me know what you think.

Also, of course, let me know if you find any bugs.

Like that you're still putting time into it Alex, not sure if I dig the color scheme, but maybe I'm just used to the old colors.

Yeah it might take a bit of getting used to but let's stick with it for a bit, at least until the other 3 site users chip in their thoughts.

I'm not quite sure either on the color scheme. I really liked the blues/greens on the last, though I see they are still here to some degree.

I DO like the sidebar on the main page that has the latest added topics. Nice.

One thing I noticed was on Unforgiven's sidebar there seems to be some broken code or something.

And cheers!
At last....

Cheers Grapester, I'll check out Unfy's hacking attempt.

but now the front page and the main forum body don't match!

other than that, it doesn't alter a great deal in my opinion so stick with it and see what happens (or doesn't, as the case seems more often to be).

As is the norm given my wandering ways, I'm coming late to this opinion party.

Frankly, I love the new look. It breathes some life into things. The dark look is comfortable for us, but I think this is more inviting and perhaps not so suggestive that we are a bunch of basement dwelling Morlocks.

True... but if anything, I'd change the main site to match the forums rather than the other way around.

Thanks for the input VG, always nice to hear from you.

Yes, I did think about reskinning the front end, but I'm really jolly busy (as usual) and looking at the stats, it's just not really worth it at the moment. Not to say I won't at some point, of course.

I demand that you drop everything and re-skin now. It is a moral outrage that will not stand! This is going on your permanent record mister!

I don't like change. And this is much to bright and cheery for my liking.

Bring on the basement dwelling morlocks.

The pink version WAS bad ass.

Remember when this place was green? Ah, those were the days... Now if only more than a handful of people would post here regularly.
