    We've implemented some major changes to the forum engine. Most of these changes are invisible to the average user for now, but there might be some weird problems with the forums during the next few days.

    If you see anything weird like "auto-tagged links" behaving badly, contact us immediately!

    Edit: One of the main changes the regular users will experience now is the fact that if you go to My Account and update your sig, all the messages where you have opted to show your sig, will update to use the new, updated sig.

    Edit 2: Now we've managed to fix the performance issue caused by yesterday's system change and the speed of the forums is back to normal.

    Cool, I kept finding older versions of my sig and wanting to update them. But I guess I will have to find somewhere else to host it now as some hosting sites throw a hissy fit when a user takes too much bandwidth. That said, almost all of us get some webspace with our net access account tho, so we could always host our own.

    Cheers Boss

    just as there are ppl who just wear the media badge or ro certain link's could those change for different problem's being addressed or when posting in safety valve or general discussion could you drop the help badge and have a more up-beat sig I personally had this one to post when a resolution was reached

    'case' sensitive is usually taken to mean the text format:

    "UPPERCASE"
    "lowercase"
    "Title Case"
    "MiXeD CaSe"

    is there any way to make it so when you delete one of your private messages that it won't show that you still have a private message ?

    Let's have a look at the forum rules shall we? Your post had nothing to do with the topic of this thread and posting email addies isn't allowed. Try our XBox forums ;)

    What happened its stoped working i think because i can see sigs that are old and the new ones users have eg. leathal-b had the 50 cent clip now hes got 50 cent flipping around, but the old one is still visible in his old posts ?

    hey dRD i really am getting tired of typing or [bold] etc .Is there any way you can incorporate a phpbb setup into the board you are using like how you added that new button for unanswered posts.

    i know it makes me lazy but it was a thought.
