Okay, we're up and running. I'm still looking at skins and what not and then there is the gallery to deal with. The Gallery forum is in working order .. its the image portion that needs to be addressed. It may take more time.

Currently the "Gallery" link from the splash page takes you to the forum. It will stay that way until I've decided on a look and layout for the gallery.

The art is not lost - we did a back up before relaunching the forum. But we can use the attachment feature in threads for now.

Spoiler tags are in, but are a bit different than before. They still appear as black-on-black using sooper-sekrit Adobe PDF Redaction Technology - but they now reveal by mouse-over, so be warned.

A whole bunch of new bbcode is present, along with in-line attachments. You'll notice you can embed tumbler et al.

The chat module or whatever it was is not here anymore either. It wasn't used that much anyway. Or it was treated as a private sort of thing. With all the ways people can communicate ... I do not see the need to bring the chat channel back on the site. :)

Used to be pretty good at tweaking SMF themes... But that was years ago.

There is a quirk on the forum. I don't know why .... and its not happening enough to pinpoint. Plus its not repeatable consistently.

When making a post that involves a quote ... sometimes the size, color and font tags that may not have been chosen become part of the post.

Options: take the tags out in the edit mode. Or use them to make your post visible. That is actually pick a size for font, 10 is usually what we use. Color whatever you want and as for font .. pick one and see what happens.

As I said the problem isn't consistent so ... all we can do is watch it. If we can easily replicate it, it will be easier for SBB to fix it.

Oh yeah, one more thing I don't see is the sarcasm button - it is gone. So ... if you plan on being sarcastic - which is fine. Just point out that you are doing so. :)
e.g.

<--sarcasm or >sarcasm

I think people will figure it out since our community is small and we're used to each other. :)
