New site and forums are live!

Postby kman » Wed Nov 25, 2015 2:46 pm

Ok all - thanks for your patience but it looks like my webhost provider made the necessary changes and we're live on the new server/site/forums.

More details will follow but for now, use it all as normal and please report back to me (email, PM, postings) whatver issues you might run into (there are always some). We'll fix them as soon as possible!

only thing I've noticed so far is they aren't very mobile friendly. The forum site always comes up wierd on my phone, really off center.

Thanks for the feedback, elandil. One of the reasons for the change was to make both sites (the main website and the forums) more mobile-friendly.

I just pulled up the forums on my phone (an iPhone) and it looks like this:

We obviously have some work to do to make sure the main logo fits properly and doesn't put in all that empty space underneath, but the forums and topics list seem to look ok (at least for me). If yours doesn't look like that, could you please post a screenshot and let us know what the make/model/OS is of the mobile device? Thanks!

Actually, i withdraw my complaint.

My OS updated last nite, fully rebooted my phone, and now it shows great. Thinking it may have just been having cache issues. Only thing now is top logo is too big and causes it to stretch over.
