      Re: Our brand new server

      I am having trouble in both ie7 & FireFox2.0.0.1

      Forum pages are displaying very poorly. Text all over the place and most graphics missing.

      Re: Our brand new server

      Just had a PM telling me some of that poster's posts have been deleted.

      We do not delete posts we move them to a hidden forum and then only if they warrant been moved.

      As we have now started the process of the server move, we are at the mercies of DNS and so the site may do some strange things, but only for the next 48 hours.

      If anyone has an issue or problems etc could you please PM me and I will look into it.

      We are hoping that there will be no down time, but sod's law is we will lose the site, for a bit.

      Re: Our brand new server - Suggestion

      Nice work Nreader. Many congrats. I wud like to suggest a more organized "tree", perhaps alphabetically sorted, for the various subjects and threads under broad headings. As this forum grows, I guess this will be necessary. IF this can be incorporated into a search window, ideal . Also please have the search window appear on all pages by default. Visitors and members then then surf the archives more easily, as also by members posts and relevant MAIN subject and sub category.
      ps. dont forget a special thread on the dreaded TIE PAIRS !

      Good luck.

      Re: Our brand new server

      Sorry to be a pain, but could you elaborate? or give some examples?

      We are always open to suggestions and if it improves the end users enjoyment of our site we will implement.

      As for the archives etc, I am not too hot on them if perhaps you could provide me with some examples I am happy to oblige.

      I have a page ready to devote just to this, if I can work out myself how these critters work. Give me a few days
