There was a grave error, on my part that meant that many users were unable to post in sections such as this one. It has now been resolved, if there are any other problems, please report it on this thread.
Originally Affected Areas
- News and Announcements & subs
I would like to add some more awards but I need your help. I ran out of ideas so if anybody has any awesome suggestions it is possible I will find the corrosponding image and actually include it on the awards list. If you want to go even further and design one, the sizes are 32 x 32 px with a transparent background. I don't expect anybody to do that...

The old forum and domain is not in our control and we cannot afford the price the owner has set for it and its assets. Therefore we are starting fresh, that is the best way forward. This means you will have to re-signup here and all your previous posts will not exist, as you have probably figured out. However we hope everybody will understand, we have made great improvements which will make our community stronger than ever. This is the last piece in the puzzle, it didn’t go exactly as planned but we now are in control of our assets.
The Sponsors should be ready soon, these have been put in place to fund the forum expenses every month. As the forum grows it will cost more and more to run, unfortunately for you it means you can’t do certain things until you upgrade. However we’ve kept the initial price low, it should be affordable by most, and also made it a one time fee. This will by out by the next weekly report after a few edits have been made to the graphics.
