    It appears to be working. I'm logged in, seeing all the posts, observing that you liked the thread post on Diablo 3 ( :D ), and replying to this post.

    Since editing now works, let me test video linking...
    tweakmonkey says thanks for this.

    Edit: Editing however, is in need of a little tweaking! ;)

    Tweaking achieved! Editing works now. (Not sure I like the pop-up box for it though...)

    Yeah man, it's pretty fluid and helps people remember where they left on some threads etc.

    It'll be a bit more work to customize but it's fun to play with. The guy who made it actually made Vbulletin 3.x -- our favorite VB software if you remember those days :D

    Hey guys,
    So based on a few recommendations from just about everyone I asked, I put the new software live for a real test. I'm thinking with a little customization this will prove to be a better system. It's faster (easier on server resources), looks good / cool effects, plus it has some features Vbulletin doesn't.

    Best of all is that I hate Vbulletin now, it's been a nightmare since that 4.x stuff that basically wrecked the old T3D (remember when we had the Arcade, a functional dark theme, image gallery etc? All that broke when we switched over)... and since most of those old features were modifications not included with the software, the authors have moved on and are no longer supporting those products.

    If for whatever reason you need to access the old forum, it is available here for now:
    http://archive.tweak3d.net/forums

    *** REALLY SORRY that I couldn't migrate the posts from the last 24 hours over. I worked as fast as I could on this but it was necessary to have some lost posts if the forum was up 24/7. I will happily copy/paste the new messages but they'll appear under my username for now.

    It may be a rocky road, luckily I have a 3-day weekend to code out the major issues. Please let me know of any problems, suggestions or complaints.

    My plan so far:
    Tweak the colors
    Make a dark theme
    Clean up the postbit area to the left
    Fix broken BB code
    Learn to do a Mexican hat dance
    Implement a much better image gallery
    Fix T3D front page

    Keep your priorities straight! Put the Mexican Hat Dance at the top of the list! :) Everything else can happen while you recover from your pulled hamstring and broken femur!

    I didn't realize hat dances were so dangerous.
