Upgraded from v2.0 to v3.0. I haven't fixed the paint job yet, still making sure the basic functions are working.

I uploaded mine myself to save you having to do another - dare I ask why you made the switch? I know you have the free time and all now, but was there a technical reason for changing everything over?

It might be your rainbow Firefox theme that made the forum lose all it's Brikwarsiness.

The forum database was getting too big for phpBB2. I don't know if you noticed how often it was starting to get weird server errors as time went on like Bonn-o-Tron. Fingers crossed, phpBB3 is supposed to handle it a little better.

The new forms were a surpise this morning, fingers are crossed for phpBB3 working better.

If your user number is 900 or less, your avatar should be working now. Everybody else, I'll get to yours later, I just ran out of time today. But feel free to update your avatars yourself, if you don't want to wait.

I like those black dots that indicate you have a post in a thread.

Keep those.

Smilies on the right are soooo small.

I believe- yes. User Control Panel> Board Preferences > Edit Global Settings> My Board Style will allow you to edit your personal design choice of blue, blue or blue.

Also, we have the very odd option of adding friends and foes now. Adding a 'foe' will spoiler their posts, so no more sudden my floppy penis dickspam, unless you decide to click his comment.
