So this is it... after what seems like aeons we have moved the forum to a new hosting supplier.

With this comes a change in Forum software. Hopefully it should be pretty easy to use and not too dissimilar to what we are used to.

Over the coming weeks I will be making changes to it and keeping you posted.

Like it, very clean layout   :)
But have we lost the map and arcade?

For now we have yes.
There is an Arcade modification that we can use, just need a bit of time to get it installed.

I'll take a look at the map next. That should be pretty straightforward.

Using the toolbar near the top of the page.
Go to 'Profile', then 'Forum Profile' from the drop down menu.
Personalized picture is the first topic.
Mine was set to 'No Avatar', I changed it to 'Upload an Avatar'
Use 'browse' to find a previously stored .jpg file.

I hope this helps,

Today in the morning I was very surprised about the "new forum" , but I like it.
