The forum has now been converted over from phpBB to SMF. It was converted due to SPAM problems. Please let me know what you think and if you have any problems.

Great job, wildcard. I would like to offer a couple of suggestions for you as you get this new forum settled in.

In the Admin panel, go to "Current Theme" on the side menu and check "Enable Inline Links". This will make the top links similar to the way they were before.

For heightened security, go to "Registration" on the side menu, then "Settings". Beside "Complexity of visual verification image" is a dropdown list, select "High". This is impenetrable by virtually all known spambots, including the ones with OCR.

EDIT: Also, just so you know, the attachments directory is not presently writable, so avatars cannot be stored here at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestions, I've altered the text and enabled avatar uploading now. I am going to leave the captcha as is as the high level one might be too dificult to read, but if the spam bots get through I will then have to.

It looks like the conversion cut off the first character of each person's signature. Well, conversions don't always get done flawlessly, and people can fix that themselves.

wildcard: It might be a good idea to do a forum post recount under the Forum Maintenance menu in the Admin panel.

EDIT: Hey, that was quick. Cheesy

Glad to see Wonder Women (I thinkż) back.  I uploaded a similar avatar to the one I used to have, a cartoon series I loved as a kid.

Eponasoft: I didn't directly do anything for the post recount, something indirectly must have triggered it or something, but its good to have it show correctly.

She wasn't very popular. She got created in late 70s and I think she got a small revamp during the first 2000s, but that's all. I just liked the aesthetics Smiley

I think the conversion broke my signature just a bit, too.

Unfortunately the conversion did seem to not take or lose one or more characters from the signatures, but atleast most of the information should be there.
