I thought I clicked on wrong link when I ended up here :)

New forum will take a bit of getting used to but I think it is an improvement. Matches front page better as well :) I like utility over looks on a forum. The icon for unread threads was hard to see but compensated for, big time, by the ability to show all new messages.

One small wish, if possible, is to make the unread messages thinge stand out better so it is an easy first choice when entering the forum.

Should be able to. Do you mean the 'View unread posts' link at the top of the Board Index page?

Indeed. That is the way I prefer to use forums and I always use that function if avaliable.

Oooo, can I have a request as well? I want some buttons at the top that make a coffee and deliver a pizza and/or curry :D

On the emailing thing, I'm really not sure what is going wrong. I sent myself a message from admin to tentimes and immediately got an email saying I had a private message. With the PM button now working this should not be a big problem though. It's maybe something to with settings.

Great job on the new theme Ant! Looks fantastic. Combines well with the also super front page.

Interestingly we have had about 6 new signups to the site in the last few days and I don't recognise any of the names! Hopefully it is people interested in the guild due to our recruiting in Rift.

Yea at least one was a viagra spam ;) We could vet every application, but I'll only start doing that if the spam gets annoying. So far it's pretty much under control. I'm sure you guys all have monster **cks anyway, so you don't need to read the advertising ;)

Was thinking.... it hurt, but I endured the pain.... in the members list, it shows various details. Might it be changed to show Interests, and get people to list all the MMO's they have played, and the names they used, in there. Might make recognising old friends a bit easier.

Now I need to go and lie down :?
