    Removed my avatar from the front page announcements.
    Should help load up the front page faster now for guests and members.

    Moved avatars and image attachments all to filesystem from the database.
    Should make everything way faster now.

    We now run MaxCDN! favicon.
    What this means now is that our website will load faster world wide, not just US and Canada!

    maxcdn-large.

    We moved now from MaxCDN to EdgeCast!

    Also recently we have added this a neat forum description code to only show the description when you move your mouse cursor over it.

    See screenshot:

    To be honest I liked our old rank design better :(

    Is there a way we can change our color for the ranks?? I think the Donor rank should be in green and orange XD

    And maybe our 47R ranks to red

    Nevertheless thanks again Ice!!

    Recently we have added a new postbit, looks much cleaner than the old look.

    Also we added jQuery effect to our front page left navigation menu.

    Check out these screenshots!

    The navigation menu on the left side has been made wider.
    Plus when you refresh the front page the menu will not move other contents to the side.


    nav.
