I like the new look! It has been a couple of weeks since I was last on here, when did this go live?

Glad you like it. Upgraded to the latest version of phpbb - just in the last couple of weeks. Much improved IMO. There is a subscription feature that I'm not sure was there before, where you can subscribe to the various forums (click the subscribe link near the bottom, or go to User Control Panel and manage subscriptions) but it may have been there before and I didn't notice it and never subscribed to anything, hence I'm very slow in responding - except in the case of a thread I previously replied to and therefore received an email notification. The new version doesn't seem to have that crazy login problem where the first login attempt often failed, for me anyway. Not sure if that problem was specific to firefox or not, but it seems to be fixed in the new version of the forums. The admin capabilities are also improved.
