It's been good fun and hard work getting the place together but we're finally here! There's still quite a bit of work to be done both on the backend and also with theme tweaks but we're happy that we've gone live. :dance2:

As well as a full site overhaul we've also made a few changes with regards site structure. The site is now fully open for all to read although we have kept a Senior Gamer only area for community discussion/direction.

So without further ado let me introduce you to a few of the new features :
  • Automated awards for participation
  • New event system with automated signup system
  • Replaced the blog with an easier to manage thread promotion system
  • Social network style "like" features :1thumbup:
  • A broader range of embedded multimedia support
We'll post about more of the site changes over the next few days together with some user guides.
In the mean time enjoy the place, take a look around and lets get some gaming in. :gamer:

Very smart. I might leave those bunch of losers I usually hang out with and register here. Looks very nice:1thumbup:

Wow this looks great, unfortunately I have woke up with flu or I could just be dying. Great work guys, hope to see and find all the features over the next few days :)

Looking good. I take it you are now using the same sort of code as Cycle Chat? One question - on the old site there was the option to view unread posts which I did a lot. I can't seem to figure it out now. Can you do this?

EDIT - Ignore me I've just figured it out, it's the "What's New" bit.

Plaxi, there's a link in a similar place called "What's New?" that does this.

The new place looks nice, definitely a new feel to it.

Yup Plaxi, very similar base to CycleChat. It was a system we both liked very much especially it's speed and the social network-esq features. There's more stuff to come but we thought we'd go live before adding more features.

Looks nice and fresh, more than a spring clean :). Well done guys :1thumbup:
I know I haven't been around much recently:oops:, personal issues that we all come across blah blah blah .... :wtf: I'll try and show my face a bit more and may turn to battlefield again soon, but I can honestly say I'm an embarrassment to myself in that game so don't expect much from me:shh:

I can read it without my glasses on, so I might not make as many tupos on this site

On my android phone I cant find an option to mark the 75 old unread topics as being read.
Any ideas?
