Forum move - new format

Just giving you advance warning that at some point in the next month, we will be moving the forum onto a new version of the software which will be the same as the 2002-2011 archive is currently using.

This will mean it'll look slightly different because this colour scheme won't be available (see here for an example), but it will run better on mobiles, and hopefully give us more tools to combat the spammers.

The organisation of the boards will remain the same, although the adverts will appear in different places, again due to the fact that the current add-on that we use for banner adverts won't be available.

I shall update once we have a time set for this to happen. Hopefully the forum won't need to be down for very long.

Spam removed - sorry, I had a busy weekend and didn't get on to deal with it before now.

I will be tailoring the board to include our logo and a few other features, along with a second option for the skin which will be closer to our previous colour scheme. It may take me a few days though. ;)

Almost sorted now, you should be able to see our logo on the Revolution style, and I'll be putting one on the Pro silver option very soon. :D

The forum will temporarily be showing vast numbers of topics per page while I remove approximately 40,000 inactive users, please bear with me!

Thanks - hope it proves more useful all round now. :D

Note that there are two styles to choose from, either the standard Prosilver (largely blue) or if you pop into your user control panel, under board preferences you can select Revolution (has some burgundy highlights and a dark frame - as per the log in screen).

Similarly with the archive (2002 - 2011), there are two options: Prosilver, and Flat style (default for the log in screen).

If you prefer Prosilver, you'll see there are different FR logos for the two forums to help you work out where you are.
