Hi folks, welcome to your new message boards, running on the Simplemachines forum software. These are similar to the previous system we had in place (phpBB), but quite sufficiently more refined and with a stronger development community behind 'em.

You'll probably notice some things.

1. We now have attachments. This means you can upload files for users to view instead of having to hotlink or embed large images in the message box. PLEASE use this option instead of embedding giant scans of things. It's disgusting when people do that.

2. We also have a new avatar gallery. While not "new", it's something people tend to not notice or forget about, and it's a nice selection I built a few years ago that I figured I should upload here for people to use.

3. You have your icon bars back. They're smaller, but still functional, and even regular members get their green stripes again. :)

4. There's a karma system. I've mentioned this elsewhere, but your "Repute" is the karma system. Generally if you lodge a complaint about a member, the admins will look at their karma, which should be an indicator of how things are going. Please don't abuse the reputation system, it's actually a fairly good admin tool.

5. There will be a "warn" system shortly. I've found a good SMF mod for that.

If you have avatars you'd like to submit by the way, please feel free to. hidoshi@gmail.com is my e-mail and you can toss me your collections there. That way we can have a nice big stockpile for any new members looking for a face. :)

I know good and well that at least one of you has a copy of that infamous Sephiroth avatar somewhere on your hard drives.  The new avatar gallery won't be complete till we have that, so get to sharing it. :P

Stupid question: how do you get to the gallery?

The fact that we get our member bars back excites me /greatly/.

[EDIT]

I am kind of sad that there isn't a Princess Saphire avatar under the new Disgaea icons though...  Hint hint.  :P

It's under Profile > Forum Profile Information > Personal Picture.

Also, you guys can now select to have a window pop-up when you get a new PM. It's under Personal Message Options > Show popup etc etc. Requested by Teh John and added this morning.

You guys also have a bunch of new Shin Sangoku Musou (re: Dynasty Warriors/ROTK) avatars now.

Edit: Also new ones from Final Fantasy Tactics and SaGa Frontier II.

Edit 2: There Richard. Your princess awaits.

Oh hey, you can save posts as drafts now. Just in case you suddenly get distracted by porn and want to close a window after writing a billion letters. :)

Ah, it was almost painful for me to give that one up Eus. It was one of my favorites.

It was whenever MarioKart DS came out. So 2005 I guess. I'm pretty sure I didn't use it for very long since Christmas was right around the corner and I quite like my Santa Yoda avatar. I don't think I ever bothered to use it again, but it did remain one of my favs.

Is this repute system cumulative, or is it just for individual posts? On most sites I tend to see it working a lot better on individual posts, since negative rep is handed out a lot more often, and having a single post getting you tons of rep downs probably isn't indicative of your overall behavior.
