    Please keep in mind that most of the board graphics haven't been updated yet. All the icons and buttons (like the icons next to thread links, the edit and quote buttons, etc.) will be changing to graphics that will better match most banners. These are pretty much the only parts of the forums that are fully styled. More screenshots will follow as more of the page templates are customized.

    Problem Users

    Problem users were cast into harsh desert sands as prey for the Hasansin savage warriors. And ostriches. [hl=orangered]Many ostriches.[/hl]

    Tamina: Only because you are so good at following orders.
    Prince Dastan: Don't press your luck.

    We're having a party! Well, two parties, to be exact. Celebration V itself is a party, of course, but TFN is having a party, as well! See [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fanforce_star_wars_celebration_v/b10611/30612102/p1/?135]this thread[/link] for details.

    The creator of this MSU/ATB wishes to note that she contemplated centering this update around the birthday of a certain individual who portrayed a certain pirate in a certain trilogy of films, but decided not to. This was done out of extreme love for the JC. Extreme love.

    *pauses a long, long moment...* So THAT'S what modsquad looks like. Huh... (And on a serious note: loved the update and think QGR SHOULD have based it around the birthday of a certain individual. Nice screen shots.)

    I was just wondering if the new board software is being tested with multiple web browsers? I use Firefox, and the new boards wouldn't be nearly as fun if they only looked right in Internet Explorer.

    The new board looks better than expected. If it still isn't done being customized like you said, I'm sure it'll look even better. I was just afraid that it would look like any other crappy VBulletin forum out there, but I'm glad I was wrong.

    Yes, we are still in the middle of customizing things, and a lot of pages haven't yet been styled, like user profiles and the search page.

    So far, I've tested the new boards on Firefox, Internet Explorer 8, Chrome, Opera, and Safari. I haven't yet gone back and tested it on old browsers, but everything looks fine so far.

    Looks fantastic!

    Will the different board sections/forums still have their own themes on VB?

    We're planning on that. We'll just have to get all the styles converted.
