This new version of phpBB is still being adapted for the forums, but we'll have it up and running in no time. In the mean time, report bugs to this topic.

Known issues:
  • Time zones were lost during conversion, you will have to enter these manually in your profile.
  • Default avatars are not working. I'll be uploading the old ones soon.
  • Some smilies do not work. I will correct these soon.
  • MySQL server is extremely unstable. This is a problem with my host, and as such it is out of my hands. I have filed a complaint, that's all I can do about this problem at the moment.[/list:u]

Some of the smilies in the "Post a Reply" screen aren't loading up.

[Edit]
Also... when you edit a message, it doesn't put the little "Edited by so-and-so at such-a-time" thing at the bottom... I guess it's not that important, and if anyone besides me really cares about it, but... I guess I'll mention it anyway.

Yay, the board's back! This theme's ok, but everyone uses it. I guess the theme Qhimm was making is useless now that it's been upgraded to V2, or has it?

Well, Joey, maybe you have a good vision, but I need dark colors because light colors are much too bright for my eyes (seriously it hurts :x ).  I have the contrast and brightness low on the monitor, but sometimes I can't see the text.

When I look at the light colours too long it gives me migraines and eyes become sore, although the previous board (ie UBB) wasn't a problem.

Strange... the previous UBB was pure white, with only some touches of blue.

Intel I agree with you completly.  Dark colours do rock, personally I don't like light colours because they are too perky, but the forum looks cool! :D

Keep up the good work Qhimm.

Argh, I hate light colours, and I like them. I think a light theme would look nice, like the old UBB one, but they cane your eyes! :o

Hey, is it possible to create multiple templates and let every member choose his desired in his preferences menu (like on phpBB 1) ?

It is, but it also makes forum maintenance an ass, since any modifications will have to be manually applied to each theme.

How about to disable 'Notify me when a reply is posted' by default in Post a Reply ? When i reply to something, and forget to uncheck it, i have my mailbox full in no time.
