And I've just noticed that a link to the homepage is at last included (at the top of the forums, on the left). That's very handy, though it has confused me several times!

Yes! You and Reepicheep had both been wanting a link back to the main site, so during the revamp, we decided to add one! Glad you like it. Smile

Very nice looking. Big improvement from the old forums. Didn't we use to have blue theme way back in the beginning?

Yes, Skuldren, you are correct! We're returning to our roots.

And welcome! Were you shocked like everyone else? Smile

Thank you very much, Mara! And I'd also like to extend my thanks to the others involved, though I can't be sure of who exactly they are. I'm pretty sure the accomplices are Rogue and OMB. To them, I am, and will be, eternally grateful! Are there others?

Why don't I see the link? I know we've been suggesting it for a few years now, And I know it was put in. I'm just not seeing it- all I see is a link back to the forum main page.

The most recent push was: OMB, Mara, Vile, and Myself. (Oh and Mara's sister had a hand in graphics as well)

Though since last year I've been slowly locking up old threads and moving things around and coming up with plans for layout and such with Andrew and Austin, and William. But the ideas were all pretty simple to do we just needed to get to the list- we had a few sets of checklists of updates for the site- you may have noticed EUCantina had seen an upgrade last year. (And will be seeing another one in the somewhat near (or far) future)

It was just something to see come together. I felt like I was having a John "Hannibal" Smith moment with "I love it when a plan comes together" moment when I returned from vacation to see that we'd gone live with the forum!

@IR: the link is the logo.

@Mara: a little shocked, I saw a heads up that the forum had been redone...then I saw how beautiful it was. Very nice surprise. Wink

Now if only work wouldn't keep me so busy I could enjoy it more.

It's top left, just a few lines beneath the logo. And it's only visible from the forum main page. And also only in the blue. We did not add it to the brown layout of old. Smile

Ahhhh! Ah HA!

So until you get to the forum main page- it takes you to that main page. I see! EXCELLENT!

It's on the main page, under the logo, on the left, and under the header bar.

In which case, thank you again, Rogue, OMB and Mara, and extending, like a half broken boarding ramp, thanks to Vile and Mara's sister!

Rogue, you're talking to the guy that thought the old forum was orange instead of brown, and freaked out a little when I discovered different.How much do you want to bet that I noticed the upgrade?!

Didn't I tell you? It was orange. We'd messed with OMB's pc so all these years he THOUGHT it was brown...


(A long standing EUC inside joke)

The forums were going to be orange. Had William and Ted had their ways. And so EVERY redesign Orange would be the proposed color first to see Austin's reactions.

Finally Ted had a genius idea to hack OMB's PC and change his display. (Ok that part I'm kidding, But I (for a moment) thought OMB might belive it and go check his settings...) Laughing

Aye, I remember you telling me, but I meant in the intermittent time (of when I read OMB's post, and yours), it was filled with many minutes of staring askew at objects, thinking that I could never trust an Orange again.
