    Sorry that I didn't give you a warning. Had to move to new forum software. The old crap was constantly bugging out on me making it impossible to manage. Not to mention all the problems you guys were having with just the simple stuff (and it wasn't user error, it was crappy programming on VB's part).

    This software is called XenForo. Much nicer and easier to use. I haven't heard any complaints from people who use it. Only praise from other forum owners running this. I will be adding some mods and adjusting the style colors later on (maybe, I kind of like the black and blue).

    Again, I apologize for the abrupt change and putting you through all the troubles the last forum software caused.

    Take a look around and see what's different. Looks much easier to use and has some nice features.

    Remember that you need to do a password reset to log in.

    The new format allows for more humor and play while still providing the repository for interesting and helpful information. I like it. Thanks for the big effort turning it around.
