    Did a major backend update. One of the newest things available to you is Two Step Verification of your account.

    Along with this, the logo has been updated along wtih some of the background. This may change but it does help freshen up the look.

    I have a few more things that will be added as well such as a 'Current Games' list (Suggested by Slo)

    Looks better than the blood splatter that used to be the main look.

    I would say for announcement posts we don't need two separate columns for it. Hell, I'd even say limit how many display on the main page. We have 3 announcements from this month and 2 from JUL and then it ends up looking a bit weird. Hell we even have announcements from last year on the front page.

    Like I said earlier, looks good man!

    EDIT:

    One thing I did notice that is happening and its not really a big deal, but there is a goofy text warp going on in:

    <div class="section visitorPanel">
    <div class="secondaryContent">

    So my name is naming as

    NorthernCaribo
    u

    Don't know if it would be possible to make it not warp and say if a name was a certain length it would just keep the display name to one line and have it as NorthernCari... (etc)

    Update:

    Responsive settings tweaked so at 1000px width (50%ish 1920x1080 my monitor rez) it switches to "Wide" format which is 'tablet' friendly layout. Screens to show the switch.

    I had to tear some things apart to fix some issues with the upgrade. The consequence of this action is Announcements which where promoted to front page news from forums outside the 'announcement' heading are not showing up. I personally promoted Dave's postings regarding PS2 to get them back up there.

    It is something we need to work on is getting more news out there as it is first thing people see of our activity.

    Streams removed for now. It is not working properly (not pulling streams). It could be related to heavy usage due to holiday. I will revisit it later.
