Upgrade to the Forum

We've been promising it for awhile, but we've finally been able to finalize the upgrade to our Forum software.

You'll definitely have already noticed some stylistic changes -- we're hoping these make things easier to read and navigate.

Most of the changes are on the back end, bringing our code up to date with the latest software versions.

If you find any bugs related to the forum upgrade, please thread them in this topic. We'll be trying to knock them out quickly, and want to avoid spamming the rest of the Bugs forum.

Are avatars turned off?

That explains the style change.

I ask because I'm amazed that anyone could think it was a good idea.

Thanks for pointing that out! It was an oversight, and we've re-enabled them... is it looking better now?

Clicking on a user brings you back to your home page, not the users page.

I've noticed that my most recent ranking doesn't have a tier either.

I've just added an image to a thread, it came up with an error message but added the post despite this.

It also hasn't updated the "Currently at the Forum"

Ditto for the user page bug. It is a constant on the Forum right now.

More info on the user page bug, since I've just checked. It usually redirects to the user that wrote the initial forum post, not just to mpowell's page.
