You must know that you can never keep everybody happy but we'll get used to the new style . . . . eventually.
That's very true Zaphod, but I hope most of you will like the new look

Incidentally Azz, will all the little fellows in the emoji section still be the same or will there be some new ones?
Awesome! Re the whip-round, you better see what it's like first - you might hate it
Re emojis, we'll be getting new ones (like the ones on modern phones). I am not sure what to do about our old ones tho - I love them, but unfortunately they are very old and are not high res, so if we do add them, it would be only some of them and it would mean it would restrict the size of the new ones since the old ones are slightly smaller ...which would make the new ones look worse as they were designed to work at slight larger sizes... so as of right now, we're definitely getting new ones but not sure about our old ones

I trust there will still be the opportunity to subscribe some financial proceeds as a token of gratitude? Think that some of us (specifically me!!) who use the forum a lot might give serious consideration to putting our hands in our pockets to contribute towards running costs a bit.
After all, I donate to a few other places such as Wiki and examsolutions.net, and I use them far less that I use your gaff.
That's very kind of you Dex! We do have a sub system already in place here ...but I'm not sure yet how we'll handle them on the new forum..

Thank you for doing all of this Azz.
Itís very kind of you.
You're welcome Bratti and I hope you like it
and yes, you will be able to upload larger photos
(although we will probably tweak the settings over time - to reach a good balance of size and space on the drive/speed)

I do hope this endless work isnít stressing you out and you havenít shouted any swear words yet!!
Thank You for everything!
I'm glad you are Art! And guess what!? I'm currently going through some of the most popular threads from each section (to move them to the open forum from the archive - so the new forum doesn't look 'dead'
) and loads of threads you have started are cropping up as some of the most popular ones
