Happy New Year!

Dec 31 2012 06:55 PM | Martijn Meerts in Articles

First of all, we'd like to wish you all a happy new year and all the best for 2013 2014!


As you may have noticed, we have made the switch to the new forum software. Not everything is complete converted yet, so some bits and pieces will be unavailable for a couple more days, and some templates haven't been fully integrated yet (such as the one for this new frontpage :)), but we'll be working on fixing all of that in the coming days. The forum itself should be fully functional.

Chances are high there are some bugs, missing graphic elements, user permissions set wrong, etc. We'd like to ask all of you to send a PM to the admins (or, more specifically to Martijn) so we can fix any problems as soon as they come up.

Lastly, thank you all for visiting and contributing to the forum, and sticking with us even when the forum software wasn't entirely cooperative =)
