Thanks to our resident CGI-guru, John, we have now installed some new forum software on our servers. The old posts have been imported, and now there are many more features available to you on the forums, such as the ability to private message and make avatars.
There are still some niggling little problems, but if you spot anything that's wrong, please email John with the details. You can visit the forums here.
Update by John 11:12 Further to Paul's post I would like to say is that if you are a registered user and had a signature please login and change it as some of them got corupted in the conversion. Other than that everything else seems to be working fine.
