Welcome to the new look phpBB based forum

Hi All,

Welcome to the new look lunarforums and we hope you like it,   the switch over took a little longer than expected but it went pretty smoothly.  Just a quick note that you will need to edit your Avatar in your Profile settings as these didn't get converted, currently we only have the standard phpBB smilies available but we will expand these over time.  

Also phpBB only has Usernames, so for those of you thinking "wheres my nick disappeared too" sorry but you will just need to change your username :)

If you notice any bugs, or experience any problems then reply here.

Enjoy
Kelvin

It is faster :) and it gives a great demo of the board for new users, because phpBB2 is the board we offer our own customers :)

Anyway.. we will be re-arranging and stuff the next few days or even weeks to make it a better place to be at :)

Ahh but there is always an exception to that rule... its called progress  :lol:

UBB was becoming a bit out dated and losing support, also the developers have just not kept pace with the features of boards like phpBB...

Ah home sweet home... I used to use phpBB on my old host when it was version 1.something. To whoever said it looks just like everyone elses forum, that doesn't have to be the case, phpBB is very easy to convert to however you want it to look.

BTW, I like how you have gotten rid of all the extra graphics and used text links instead. Thats a good idea I might just have to copy on my own forum when I get the time :mrgreen:
