WOW! Shocked Shocked Shocked I hadn't even checked the website for a few weeks now... and WOW! This is totally sweet! Fast and pretty! That horrible orange is gone! Congratulations LXF you have done a smashing job! The site now looks really professional.

Now lets just hope all the old members haven't given up completely and remember to come back! Are you going to announce the new launch in your mag?

I agree wholeheartedly with you Flea! This has certainly been worth the wait.
Oh and I agree hope old users come back, I being one, albeit under a new name! I have taken the time to email all my friends and those I know used the site so hopefully that'll bring a few back.

Regards Zara...

I find it so ironic. I posted a couple of years back about how bad the old site looked and asked why not use phpBB.

I remember getting some verbal abuse about content mattering more than style and usability.

So, having just happened by, it's nice to see this revamp. Get rid of the rest of the 'orrible orange and I'll be a happy bunny.

Change to the Extra lite theme? It's bluish and minimalist-ish.

The old site *was* using phpBB - but not phpBB2 - that was the whole point, we couldn't upgrade various parts of the site

You can also down-load the .css files, as shown in a saved page ... edit, and use it as a user.css if the browser allows for that.

Ah, thanks. What's the "Board Style" option in the user profile, then? (It's not much of an option, actually.)
