With the upgrade comes a number of changes, many of them minor, but there are several large changes. I'm not even aware of everything that has changed yet. I had to remove the shoutbox, but that will be back at some point soon. Reputation system has been overhauled as well (you can only "like" posts now, I believe), but I can restore the previous system if required. I'm not going to bother with listing the other major changes, they should be fairly evident (like profile pictures and avatars now being the same image, which is slightly annoying, but oh well).

The current skin is only temporary, and is still incomplete so it looks very ugly in some places. I'm going to fix it up over the next few days, so bear with me. I'm working on a proper skin (one which will match the main site's style) but it will take a while.


Pretty brief post, but I'm busy, so I'll come back and explain more/answer any questions later this week.

So far I love it, Dave. It's... I don't know, just great. I thank you for all the work you've done, keeping it going strong even when we were down.

I love you, Dave.

This is awesome.
It may have just been me, but I didn't really like the rep system. I prefer only having likes, IMO it's much better.

Removal of rep system is good. Since the layout in its current form is incomplete, all I can really comment on is that I like the direction it's going in. Will take some getting used to, but it's nbd. Looking good so far, Dave.

Rep system isn't completely removed, each "like" = +1 rep, so I'm still going to implement several reputation ranks. There just isn't a way to negrep people anymore. I'll probably reset all of the negative counts at some point.

Yeah, I just discovered that when I checked out my profile. Either way, it's better now. The negreps started to get kind of catty and unwarranted in some situations, especially if you've pissed someone off :/

Only thing I currently dislike is the fact that the "Empire" up top looks like it's straight out of a 50's sitcom, but it's temporary so it's okay.

Eh, it's weird. Perhaps the computer I'm currently using is making it look worse than it is, but the font looks a bit blurry.

I'm enjoying the new layout, I like the new features. The new background looks nice as well; I'm just not very fond of the font of the text that says "Empire". I just don't like it, I think the old font was more visually appealing; to me anyway.

Hmm... One thing I noticed is that next to the box where you type your post (Where I'm typing in right now), my icon is re-sized to be a square, and it looks odd and disproportionate.

Approve, though will require some getting used to. things change though, what can a nigga do?

anyhow, much approve of overhauling rep system, neg rep is just abused

pos rep is abused too, but by now i think people have gotten bored of that form of wankery.

EDIT: particularly like the mouseover miniprofiles.

cocaine from Bolivia and fucking Fran on the starboard deck."
