New Website and Forum Upgrade!!!
« on: July 03, 2014, 11:27:18 PM »
Hi All,

As you my have noticed theres now a landing page announcing a new website :D
We have been working on this for the last 6 months trying to get this all perfect.

Along with the new website we have also found a new forum platform. This will be powered by Simple Machine Forums which has proved to be the cheapest (free) and most stable base. We shouldn't loose any data but there will be a username clean up

Now for your input.

What would you like to see from our new page and forums? Keen to hear your ideas and make sure we get this right

Cheers

Also maybe make the Section/topic stand out more when there are new posts. Atm the only thing is the 'Today" in bold which is easy to miss. Im sure with a few fixes this is going to look pretty good!

Still have around 50% of the screen as black bars.
There is no option to automatically adjust to user resolution?

Have you done a refresh on the page. I have a 1080x1920 monitor and I have maybe 15% black edge.

Is there just a 'new posts' button/page? I used to use that as there's not normally much activity to warrant going through all the different sections xD

Nice work on the website, and with the addition of tapatalk compatibility (although i can't find the site when searching in the tapatalk app). Any way to increase the top-margin of the header text? it's smack bang flat against the very top of the website with a bit of black below it. not too fussed over it though :D

Cheers Promaori, haven't activated the website officially or the tapatalk yet. Hoping to do later tonight. :)
