Hello,

You'll notice that the forums have changed and there are lots of new features.

I felt it was time to upgrade seeing as this version has much better ban controls etc. and seeing as you are largely a load of arses we need that capability.

There will no doubt be settings enabled that should be disabled and vice versa, and I don't like the look and feel (too much going on) so work will be put in by Gref/me to make it easier to use.

If you spot anything or have comments please let us know!

Good to hear that!

Anyways, if you look at the "Post your desktop" thread you'll notice that the forum doesn't stretch to the image width. Any possible fix for that?

I've noticed on other forums that they've implemented something that's called [imgw] that scales the image so that it fits the width of the forum, and if you click the resized image it'll open in a new tab/window in full size. Could that be implemented here as well?

Very very nice, can't wait for the custom CDG theme (but will). The layout seems much nicer and clearer.

Noticed a few problems, such as renders of releases etc have parts of the picture cutoff with no availability to scroll over to see the rest etc. Also, the puke default theme is gonna kill me lol.

It looks as if this version has it built in already. Well, I think it does. I couldn't get any clear results, but I found this in swedish (translated):
Admin CP -> General/Common -> attachment settings -> Maximal miniature width in pixels.

I guess that that only applies to attachments though? Blarg!

The biggest dislike I have is that avatars are limited to 100x100.
