Exclamation The New! - EVERYONE READ PLEASE

Well.... I'm sure you all were scratching your heads because of the odd database issues and server issues over the past few days. Well.... to our discovery our hard drive was corrupt , fortunately Kevin and his speedy fingers downloaded all the backups and files so we could restore

You'll notice some changes with the new, one of the biggest ones is, we're no longer running on vBulletin 3.0.3 which was highly unstable and not very secure. We're now running on vBulletin 3.6.8 and we will update when a new version comes out!

What does this mean for you?
  • Forums will run faster and with less problems
  • New future functionality easily added
  • More enjoyable experience!
  • Easier for moderators to manage the website (that's right, many more cool features for the staff!!)
  • More stable forum, meaning less downtime

New Skin!

That's right, we created a new look to There is less images in the templates, therefore it will load quicker for those with slower connections.

We need feedback

This section is ment to stand out, because as I always say, the forum is powered by the community and your thoughts / opinions are what matters. Please don't be shy, we need your honest feedback!

Considering the forums are a completely new version of software, some of the functionality will be missing. Don't panic! If you notice a feature missing and want it, we can restore it!. That's right, simply tell us what feature is missing and we'll restore it.

New Server

Welcome to the new, we have moved out of The Planet, which was our home for a while. Their service was great until our server hdd was corrupt and exploded (Naw, it didn't explode). The new host of is my company, RosenMill Technologies, Inc! We're running on a brand-new sweet dedicated server with a strong reliable connection.

Have any questions or general feedback?

Feel free to ask, share and complain. I love to hear them all.

If you want your complains / feedback to remain private, please private message me!

Encountered an Issue?

If you encounter an issue, please report it to me immediately, either via PM system or by my personal email address: [Markro] (at) [Gmail] (dot) [com]!

Thanks and enjoy the New!!!

Just for confirmation.

Please post if your header image does not look like this:

I just need to know that the new style is working properly for everyone.

Inform me if it isn't working for you.

Looks good, fast compared to the last few days.

I like the new look, a sutle change but noticable.

Great work, team.

I've seen the new vBulletin skin in a couple other forums, and like it. I'm also glad that you didn't do as many other forums have done, and that is ruin the entire system by going to the Pluck Java system. I don't visit those sites anymore.

Good job Mark.

RystyW mentioned if there is a way to lock our own threads. That would be handy.

Great to hear guys!!

AxlyMyk, I can look into that closing your own threads, possibly work something out for that.

Router is still my name, Yes, I'll look into replacing the Member's individual gallery.

Thanks much guys!

Hi Mark:

Compliments on the new, improved website. Faster access and cleaner layout are real plusses. Yes, I see the new header -- the first thing I noticed actually.

Excellent work!
