OK all is updated....

Using IE seems to have less features then using firefox.. I can resize my edit window and other stuff using FF but not IE... Not sure about Chrome or other browsers.. But FF has some cool new things you can do... Like drag the edit window to whatever size you like...

This update of the theme/style has allowed a number of things ive found so far... One of the things I can do now is for a new user when they first complete registeration that incredibly annoying "type the letters you see" thing is now set for the re-capta thing you see everywhere. The advantage to using it is that it can be very quickly reloaded with other things and you can do this until you find one thats easy to do.. ALSO it has a voice version that allows someone who has trouble seeing it visually..

I have played around alot with the forum in the last day after these upgrades and i cant find anything wrong.. If you find something wrong make sure to post here or PM me...

Enjoy...

Hi Chris,

I just wanted to try out the new 'quick Reply' option and say a big thanks for all the work you do, and an extra thanks for still letting me hang around.

btw isn't there going to be a 2 year LHC portal celebration party any time soon, I could send you a card.

greetings,

m.

The portal was born on Nov 11th at 5:55am GMT.. This makes it a Scorpio.. hehehe..

Im glad that there are so many people who daily have fun on the site :)

Well the forum software was way behind.. The theme/style was really behind.. They were due for upgrade.. Its all now completely current.. Of course some new update is bound to come along..

I did fix one GLARING issue just now... The color of the title bar when you quoted someone in a message was a horrible sorta peach color... That had to go... Nice its a nice dark gray..


Hmmm were all these message edit options here before ? I dont remember.. hahahaha....
