    Small Update *Please Read

    JS updated the software on a minor upgrade a couple of days ago - there have been some minor problems with the skins/themes - the right margin on the default skin is a bit messed up - hopefully this will be fixed soon.

    The Hexcell (my favorite) seems to be working fine except for a couple of minor problems that's plagued it from the begining. Please be patient. If ya notice any other problems, please PM either JS or myself - and, try to attach a screen capture of the issue...

    Note - if ya have no idea what I am talking about on the "skins/themes" - go down to the very bottom of any page - you will see a drop down box - U have 3 choices on how U want the website to appear for you.

    After doing to upgrade from vbulletin 3.5.4 to 3.6.0 and updating the templates, The templates seem to acting odd after the upgrade... Nothing to major at this point in the game. Last night there were a couple of server issues going on...but those have taken care of. Now I just need to get the templates up to speed. Right now, the header stats aren't working... Not sure what the deal is... I've contacted the template author to see what could be going on, so I'll have to wait on his reply.

    Also, depending on what browser you're using and your screen display settings, the site layout may be different. On my end the layout looks ok and I'm using Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on my mac... with my screen resolution set at 1024 X 768. But, when Shipwreck is viewing the site, some areas seem to be broken up abit and I've seen his screenshots...The layout is off.

    So... If I could get some feedback from everyone on how the layout looks and any other issues, that would be great. Just leave comments here on this thread and I'll keep checking. I want to get all this little stuff taken care of once and for all. Screenshots are always welcome!

    Thanks Everyone!!!

    I was on Hexcell yesterday, but this morning I was mysteriously back on the default. Switched back to Hexcell and everything is looking good to me! (IE6 and 1024x768.)

    Yes, it switched for me too - whenever he starts making some changes, it will switch back to the default sometimes. Its not that big of a deal. I just changed it back to Hexcell for me. And once we get everything fixed, it should not switch on ya.

    Well, I've all but given up on the "default" template... To many bugs and there doesn't seem to be an easy fix anytime soon. So for now Hexcell will be the default. So I'll spend my time focusing on and beefing it up some. I've started adding some new graphics and I'll work on a better "header" image to better represent the site.

    It was always there - ya just would have had to manually switch it yourself on the menu.

    But, now Hexcell replaced the default. The Hexcell has always been my fav

    There was a couple of messages in the How To section I think, that mentioned the way to change the site view. There was 3 different ones. Now there is only 2. I tried to bump it periodically so the newer people would know...

    It must have been my computer acting up, AGAIN. The little gremlin who lives inside decides from time to time to mess with things. I found your site by accident. That probably ticked him off. He let me register, but somethings were not right. It was slower than normal. I clicked on everything. Nope. Tried to change the screen...nothing. Tried to post...wouldn't work. So, I cussed him and tried the following day. He must have had a good night, because when I opened your site, wella! A new wider and colorful screen. Even a little faster. I know he'll mess with it some more, but for now it is working fine. I've threatened to use it for target practice.
