So as I'm sure you can tell, the forum seems to have traveled back in time a few days. We hope you'll bring some new conversation to make up for it smile

A few notes:
  • Data migration is forthcoming. Proving to be more difficult than anticipated
  • Think of the new site as a baseline- more features and improvements are planned for rollout. This is just the beginning.
  • Black Day forum theme is not working right now. As soon as we get it back into shape we'll let you know
  • There will likely be some issues as we continue to find bus to squash. Please bear with us.
  • Enjoy the new site!!

Looks good but will there be a way to make the front page dark as well? Reminds me of the new Shacknews and not in a good way.

Is this something that will be fixed, or will those few days be added to the missing eleven days forever?

I like it.  The dark theme is still a little too light though...any way to change the background to black instead of white?

Thank god we're not playing a WW game during the transition, eh?!

Speaking of WW games, we gotta start one up soon!

On the redesigned website - that's more like it! In the form of a blog is the best way to go. Good job!

Looks great! I also really like the blog view, why the only other gaming site I browse is Joystiq. Besides Blues News.

Just a few things the "Continue Reading" links don't work, and if you go to a post that has an embedded video that doesn't seem to work either. This is in Chrome on Windows. The "latest video" link though that embedded video works.

This should be fixed. Try refreshing/ clearing your cache. It seems the caching system isn't evenly populating the change.

FYI, guys - if the site looks a little funny, or doesn't properly scale to smaller screen resolutions (it does, seriously - even your cellphone's browser), make sure that typekit.com is added to NoScript's allow/safe list. I had that issue until I flipped that on.

I do have one question though - is there a way to attach our forum account to our commenting one on the main site?

No. We looked into SMF bridges and none of them were worth a shit. We will be testing other solutions in the future. It is definitely high on our wish list.

Hi, I'm the replacement Hepcat installed by the new forum software.  Hepcat 2.0 has been specifically designed with Purge in mind.  It's sole purpose on these boards will be to just add the reply "Your Momma!" to every single post by Purge.  If you like Hepcat 2.0 please don't hesitate to download the iPad version on itunes.  That version will actually send text messages to Purge every 12 minutes reminding him that he's impotent and may likely have at least 3 venereal diseases.

Love the new design, by the way.  And to make this perfectly clear:  the new forum has not resulted in any hair loss on my part.   I still maintain a luxurious, thick mane of almost godlike quality.

For some reason, I find the new font hard to read.  Seems more appropriate for a printed page.

Otherwise, I love it. Especially all the info shown on each pieces header. Great design.
