New Forum Software.
As part of our need to make this "The Ultimate Forum Experience"..
We have upgraded our forum software to make your surfing a much better experience!
Please note we are still sorting restricted folders out, and we do seek your kind attention in being patient while we work out the kinks to the new system, for the time being, you may not be able to access certain folders you were able to.
For all problems regarding your experience(e.g can't log on, etc.) to the new forums, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will attend to them as soon as i can.
For now, there are a few functions which are new to you guys, and this may cause some confusion in the process.
1. Your signatures are not up. In the move, i had to temporary shift the files to another directory, so the links are wrong, and they are not showing up as per normal.
However, i have also installed a new photo gallery software, which has a TONNE of features which i can't even list out myself right now. Do spend some time exploring it and it's useful features such as :
- Multiple File uploading
- Ability to create personal albums
- Upload zip files containing images, and post comments etc.
- Ratings etc.
I will be customising some parts of the site to make it more "surfing" friendly as well, and incorporate some of the previous forum's navigation into the new one as well. Do seek your patience as i'm still working on configuring certain parts of the forum!
Please note if you are wondering where is the PM function + other links, please view my attachment below.
NOTE: Please update your profile and options in the User Control Panel (The link is located on the top left), to set the proper time and custom settings for yourself.
PS: I would like to take this chance, to thank Alvin (Puny) for assisting me with the transfer and setup of the forums. Two thumbs up for the tech guy!

Well, the sig pics will be up in the near future as Ryan is still sorting out the tons of pic links that we have. If u want to change to new sigs, u can do that now and it'll be reflected immediately on the new software!
Please adhere to basic forum rules:
1. No Off-Topic Posts 2. No Big Sigs 3. No Personal Attacks.
