Hey Gang,
After a week in drydock, the new and improved FeatureForum appears ready for a shake down cruise.
I want to thank all of you for your patience while we worked out a few kinks.
Please don't hesitate to report any bugs you encounter as you get used to the new look and design.
We're back  Smiley
Gino

Just a quick thought the colour scheme makes it a bit hard to tell where there are new posts.

Check out those big circles at the left side of each topic.
If they are blue, there are new posts. If they are black no new posts.
I'm trying to think back how you were able to tell the old way.
Me, I always just hit the "show unread posts since last visit" link at the top. It displays the posts that are new and I can click on what I want to see.
I felt like we had to look a little more modern here.
That old style was fine in 1567 but it was time for an update, and moving to a new server provided the perfect chance.
I've also added a spell check, in case anyone's interested.

It wasn't the new look that kept us down for a week. It was that massive overload of size that caused problems when we moved.
Both FeatureForum and Upcomingdiscs are now with the host I've used for my reptile and music biz.
It should be faster and more stable than it was before, with room to grow.
Keep your thoughts and comments coming.

I realize now what caused the confusion as due to the data load a lot of areas were showing as having new posts incorrectly. All good now.

Yeah, it was a remarkable mess.

Thanks.
I thought the green stood out against the dark better.
Plus, I just love green Smiley
