Much Anticipated Changes
June 7, 2012 - FridayI'd like to start first with saying... I have good news, and I have bad news. People like to hear the bad first, so here we go. The bad news is, I am no longer working on this website. I don't have the patience to go through and fix all the details. Now, for the good news. I am going to pay someone to make this site with big bucks. I am in a high paying job, and the first thing I'm going to do with the money is invest into making the site as I've wanted to. For those upset about the years wait... oh well! For those who have followed since the beginning... Thanks, and welcome! =-D
About the New Awesome Forums
January 3, 2012 - Thursday
Within the new awesome forums there is one issue to speak of that has drawn the site administrator's attention which was the user's name failing to display within various areas. For the most part this issue was fixed as of today. However, if there are any areas found where a user's name fails to display where it should, please post it right away in the Site Support Topic which was made specifically for this issue, and be sure to include in your post the URL where this issue was found. As with all things, changes are best made in moderation to ensure full functionality, which is what us here at ACBay have intended to do to so we have this legendary website back up at full speed. On our to do list next are the following:
- Install a more robust blog system to replace the existing one
- Install a chatroom
January 2, 2012 - WednesdayThe old buggy forums have been replaced! We were unfortunately unable to transfer the topics/posts, and all activity that took place on the site between Dec. 31 - Jan 1 was deleted to make this change take place. There will be a temporary link here to the old forum in case there is information anyone would like to take off of it.
December 30, 2012 - Sunday
After much work attempting to make our current forum software function as desired within the community, it has come to our attention this is not easily feasible to fix a number of issues we're having. As regrettable as this is to say, we are going to need to switch to different forum software, and consequently, different blog software as the two are integrated together. This will be for the better however, as this change will lead to an improved user experience. Issues such as the profile avatar not reflecting the profile avatar, and notifications not displaying on the forum/blog pages, will be things of the past. The forum is an integral part of our community, and as such this must be resolved prior to advertising this website and increasing traffic flow. During the change to the new forum software, there will be a period of time where both forums will exist for the purpose of transferring our current posts, topics, and boards. If there are any concerns and/or questions over this, you may continue to post them in the usual forum area.

- Replaced all forum smilies with new ones
- Added quick reply feature on forum thread responses, added smilies to quick reply
Merry Christmas ACBayers!
