We have been working hard over the last few weeks to get the site updated to keep up with the relevant software updates, database updates and web standards.
You may have noticed that we now run SSL on our domain, meaning you will see a green padlock in your browser address bar. This means our content is "safe" and encrypted.
The site theme has changed beyond recognition, but you now have the option to change from a light to dark style in just one click. Simply click on the light switch in the user menu and hey presto!
See the image below.

More changes still to come. The main feature being spoken about for the forum software is "push" notifications. As with facebook and twitter, you will get notification icons on your mobile device if you are watching or subscribed to a thread/topic, when someone replies, messages are received or someone tags or likes your posts.

We will keep you informed of all updates in this section.


Please post your thoughts on the changes under this post.

How are you liking the new style guys? Have you found anything missing or looking strange?
The changes were unavoidable due to forum software updates, so we thought it a good time to have a brand new look.
We have also made changes to the code, which was causing search engines not to spider all the forums content causing a dramatic drop in registrations and interaction. Hopefully that will change in the coming days / weeks. We hear on the grapevine that the app style mobile push notifications will be implemented sometime in the early new year, which is good news as that is a great addition to any forum.
Feedback is always appreciated and dont forget to rate the website here.
