Interesting, these new developments are. Watch and wait we must.

Are you going to bring back the recently posted topic on the index <v> ? You used to be able to see the topics, but only members are there now.

I do say, I like this. However one of my favorite features is gone, the 'Last topic posted in' thingamajigger. Like when you were on the main page there was a topic that was most recently posted in under each category (Town Crier, Scriptorium, The Armory, etc)

Data Loss....

Unfortunately, during the upgrade many posts found their way into the great beyond. Attempting to bring them back may jeopardize other portions of the board.

If you notice something missing, feel free to repost. Please help me rebuild some of the topics.

I dont know what you guys are complaining about, I love this. This is a beastly looking forum and Im glad it changed. The old blue & white plainness bored me. I love the color scheme on this and everything. It certainly makes forum-going for me a lot more fun! Plus it matches the website now.

Thanks Armothe! :D

EDIT: After scavenging through the forums, I'm almost completely satisfied! My only requests are:
-Make the avatar size-limit 100x100. that maeks avatar searching/sightseeing a lot easier.
-Have the signature character limit be 90-100 characters like it used to be. I do recall the time when it was unlimited and everybody went crazy with sig-bars, but I think 75 is too little to actually write out enough for a good quote or a great line.
-Least important, but maybe change up the colors of the 'Key'? As in, maybe have free members not be blue, the mods not be purple, etc? I understand it might be a hassle but I was thinking maybe when you decide on a theme to keep/make available have the colors of the different types of members match the style of the forum. Like since the one currently being used now is orange/grey, I don't think blue looks 'in place' with it. This request isnt as important as the others, but I thought I might as well share it. :)

oooh new change but liked the BrickForge logo up in left corner instead of just BrickForge word.

Agree with this stuff.

I sort of agree with the colors, but at the same time I really could care less since I'm already used to it :9

That sounds good CB. I would like a longer sig.
