    Welcome all new members!!!!

    And Morgaine I would put the private boards in their own category, normal users can't see them anyway, and people might think that they aren't allowed to post in the JCComms either. :)

    Well, it didn't take that long, actually. ;) I copied most of it from version 2.0, just updated a few things.

    And the colors are still my old name colors. ;) I might change that for the next version. :D

    Hey everyone!

    Just wanted to let you know that I'm on holidays for a week, and won't be able to get online in the next couple of days. I'll be back on Friday, October 11th. :)

    If there's a problem in this forum while I'm gone, please contact another moderator, I'm sure that everyone will be willing to help you out.

    Goodbye, and see you all next week! :D
