Forum upgrade has been completed

You may be noticing that the place looks a little different.

I just completed an upgrade of the forums - I believe that everything is working OK, but let me know if it isn't.

There may be some extra security measures I can put in place now, and there may be some additional features for users that you'll like. As time goes on I'll continue to work on it.

Let me know if you have any questions...

...I have also turned on the option to upload your own attachments - like photos.

We'll see how that goes. Currently I am limiting photo sizes to nothing bigger than 800x600 and 512Kb in size. Like the photo I just attached here:

...anyone posting anything inappropriate, like pornography or anything illegal or which violates someone's ownership rights, will receive a swift smackdown and possibly be banned. So don't do it.

Oh, couple other things to point out that you might not notice on your own, but that I think you might like...

At the bottom of the page on any topic, there are some new options.

One, you can now Subscribe to a topic. That means that any time someone responds to that topic, you'll get an email alerting you to that fact. There's also an option to set that when you post a new topic.

Secondly, you can also Bookmark topics - what that does is add it to your Bookmarks in your User Control Panel - like bookmarking websites in your browser, you can collect links to all your favorite topics that way.

Give those a shot - I think you'll like them :wink:
