As many of you know, the forum software is the latest version of IPB that is available and installed.
Though we are familar with the older version, the new version has many more options and features located in different areas than before.
As we find / install / activate new options, we will keep everyone informed

The latest find is the quick reply in the forums. It looks like just a singular empty line at first, but when you place your mouse over it, it then opens to a post box.
Enjoy!

For all of you who like new and different skins, we just added 2 new skins.
Midnight Glow, for those of you who like the dark color skins and
ibr, for all of you who like the lighter style skins.

Check them out and let us know what you think.

Thanks,

Due to popular demand :) , we have rearranged some of the forums in the computing catagory.
This should make it easier to find the sub catagoies.
We added 2 new catagories, Photography and music
Happy posting and keep those suggestions comming!

Another update!
These just keep coming.
We have added another new forum.
You will notice the catagory change in name from Tech News on the Horizon to Tech News and Reviews on the Horizon.
We also added a forum to that catagory for members reviews. This is where members who would like to post a review of an item they own.

I'm happy to anounce after weeks of pulling my hair out and driving Agent49 crazy, we are very close to getting a news page functional.
Im still working on a few very minor page adjustments but after that we will be ready for content.

Hi everyone,

We now have the news and reviews front page installed
If you notice, there is a new button link at the top of the forum called "pages" .
If you follow the link, it will take you to our new front page.
Right now, we have not added anything or promoted anything to the front page, but we will soon.
After we start populating the new front page, we will create a redirect to make it the new home page.
You, as a member will be able to comment to news and reviews in articles on the front page and they will post in the forum.
Allot nice features went into this and I hope everyone will enjoy them.

I will also be working (in the back ground) on a more attractive front page the next few weeks.
There is also a media section I can turn on for the front page, but it needs some work.

Hope everyone likes the way the forums and front pages integrate with each other.

Thanks
The now hairless, Agent51

I like the RSS feed there. <borat>Very Nice</borat>

I wish there was an RSS feed that would feed me new posts instead of having to go to the "new content" button each time.
