    Just a heads up that there should be a forum software upgrade tomorrow morning GMT (if all goes smoothly with the test upgrade!). It's mainly to fix some bugs and compatibility issues, but it may bring some other enhancements down the road :).

    The upgrades should only take 30 mins or so, but we'll no doubt need time to fix some niggles once we've all started using the updated software. The template has been re-created to look as similar to this one as possible, so there shouldn't be many (if any) visible differences to the look of the site... it's mainly "under the hood" stuff.

    Little glitch I noticed was when I click on the smiley emoticon they just show up below as words and not the actual picture of them and half of the emoticons don't show up when you click show all in the pop up box..........of course only I would notice that being queen of the animation world :rolleyes: See this little one still works but lots don't.........they appear as broken..............bless their little hearts :heartpump:

    Thanks, I've zapped him - I thought there was a limit on status-updates, so I'll see if I can re-enable it for new members.

    Hey Ian, when you go into private messages, then hit new content, it says no new content, even though there is. Just a burp, unless it is just me.
