    Hi everyone.

    While some of you are fighting like little girls (I'll probably get into more shit for that comment, but hey ho, moving on :p), We are considering moving to new forum software, however, before a final decision is made we would like 5 or 6 members to have a look and poke around and give us their thoughts on the new design and layout.

    Our current software is nice but getting a bit antiquated and limited on functionality. The new software is much more user friendly and modern, works great on mobile devices and tablets and has some cool features like drag and drop image uploads.

    If you've got a spare 10 minutes, please post here and I will PM you the access link and passwords.

    Basically we're looking for your thoughts on the colour scheme and overall layout of the forum, whether or not the threads are easy to read and navigate around etc.

    Thanks.

    As long as it can be used by "old men". I don't care what colour it is.

    We can test some of the more technical features for usability for you, and of course poke around the regular stuff and see if we can break anything ;-P

    Nice like the new look ... and that you kept the same account details is cool.

    Goo job on the upgrade. Might have lost an unread PM, but that is OK no clue who it was but they can resend ;-)

    Testing. Using a gif maker for small vids. I see the limit now is 4mb which will be good for this.
