Fatal Error in the Forum

In spite of my best efforts our forum upgrade has been a complete mess and unworkable bit of nastiness for ye ole webmaster. So, with a great amount of trepidation I’ve decided that there are too many compelling features to miss out by not implementing the latest and greatest version (4.0.1) and the trade off is wiping the slate and starting clean.

I understand how insane this might be and am prepared to take a little heat over it too; after all, I’ve been down that road before. I do promise to post back in this same spot with the new feature list and I won’t let this new version get dated at all — will keep it regularly updated so as not to fall way behind as I did with version 2.1.

Hisses, booing, or other feedback are welcomed in the comments.

Update no.1 » New forum is in place (though a little on the ugly side of UI standards). New features include no more math except for our guests; HTML tags for those who need a little help adding images, links, stylized text, etc.; Smileys; and a few other things to discover. We do have an option for private messaging but it is disabled for now, let me know if you’d like to see that feature added.

    Happy Paddy’s Day :-)

    Forum looks nice, but isn’t the default font size in the posts a bit on the large side?

    You’ll get no argument from me on that ralf, it will certainly be addressed when I dive into to customize the skin to my liking. How about those horrid icons and color scheme? Egad, my eyes hurt!
