Thanks to those that have posted positive comments about all the progress that is being made.

Big thanks to the whole tech team. Not that long ago the entire site (forum & database) was completely down for days/weeks at a time. In just a few months they have moved us onto a legit server (Google Cloud), fixed tons of stuff that was broken for years (members can finally create Art Comments threads again), and did the first actual upgrade of the forum software in probably a decade.

With some style/format tweaks (I agree with pretty much all the comments I've read on this) and tighter integration with the database side of the site it will start to feel like home again.

Was afraid I'd come back and we would be on some wierd UAA style nonsense.

Thanks. Glad you like it!

All the way through this we've been trying to remember that not only is there a smaller more active/vocal part of the community on these forums but also many who lurk but value them too. We've hopefully improved things for everyone and with a bit of luck over time some of you will come out of hiding and take more part in the discussions. :clap:

@1nkling - can you see metrics about number of members visiting and posting? It'd be interesting to see if the fixes and new appearance starts bringing folk back to the forums.

Not a massive difference but a bit of an increase. Will get a better picture as time passes.

Will prolly take several months for the casual fans to notice/receive word from the fb philistines.

lol^

Im getting used to all the little changes; even the quick links dropdown to get to "new posts" link isn't that bad, although having that just sitting out on it's own would still be preferable.

The font is much better too on the messages - I didn't notice it at first, but I find it much easier to read for some weird reason.
