Any way to put it back the way it used to be? I get this trapped feeling, otherwise, like the forums are a dead end with no way out.

Fixed

I caught something odd happening when I received a PM notification via e-mail - the forum mode switched from prosilver before/after I logged in to subsilver2 when I hit "reply." Subsilver2 is my default mode and I don't know why it would have switched only AFTER I hit "reply."

My penchant/misfortune for discovering weird bugs and things is beginning to emerge...

Any news on when the site will be accepting uploads again? The FTP server still appears to be down. Thanks!

The default style is prosilver for all users unless you are logged in and have subsilver2 set in your profile. We've set subsilver2 as the selected style for existing members since it is closest to what they are familiar with. All new users get prosilver, but they can change that setting in their profile if they prefer.

I think the new forums okay, it'll just take some getting used to.

However, there's now no way to access someones org profile via the forum, since the button's been removed. It's starting to annoy me. :/

Finally, we're back! Although, I don't like the super bright look, plus it's not a fixed width now. Trying to read across 18 inches on a widescreen monitor kinda sucks. Didn't see any options to change this. Now being that it just got back up, I'm not going to nit pick too much. Glad to be back :up: !

Thanks for all your hard work. A week without this place was kinda odd.

They will be back eventually. Please be patient as the forums are still evolving.

It's surprisingly how I suffer without this forum (oh, the angst). Thank you for bringing it back to life ^o^
