We're also going to be going through some changes soon at In the upcoming months we will be switching to new and improved forum software. It is already in the works. All users, posts, PMs, polls, etc. will be imported - so your login will continue to work. The "style sheet" will also be converted, so the forums will "look" the same, but tons of new and useful functionality will be added, without the user experience getting more complicated. Read ... for more information about this up coming change.

There has also been a change in Area 51, the area of our site which is only open to members. This entire area has been revamped and is now a place for announcements, special messages, and downloads. Only regulators and administrators will be able to post in this area now. Threads that were located in area 51 have been moved to the newly renamed Community Center and Chat Forum, which was previously the Not So Serious Forum. If you'd like to read more about this change then please feel free to do so ...
