We have finished updating the forum software to the newest version, phpBB 3.0.7. It brings security updates and lots of new features at the cost of a slightly different interface which you may have to get used to at first.
If you experience any problems, let us know immediately in the comments!

Friendly bots are welcome too? :B

I recommend anyone to give a check to the new user control panel. Don't forget to enable BBCode when changing signatures. Wow there's a friend system and a foe (what) one too.

Eep! I'm sorry! This short downtime was caused by me installing a quick hack to hide those search engine bots crawling all over the site. :)

Friend/foe system gone, better now. We don't need that crap, I guess.
Haha managed also to see an useless private forum :P

This forum has become more awesome.

You're the best debugger one could wish for, UB. :P
Group admins and team members, there may have been some permission changes. Check if you can access everything you need. I made sure that nobody except the respective teams can access private forums, but for everything else there may have been some oversights (for instance with moderation privileges).

The forums went down with an error a few minutes ago, I guess you had to fix that? If not there might be an issue.

Also, testing.

Sana had to fight the search engine bots, as said above.
My Mod privileges at Contest forums are okay.

I'd like to see image resizing now. Actually I was disappointed to figure out this is not a standard feature for phpBB3.

I did in fact have some Greasemonkey scripts enabled to help with both image resizing and, if you could manage to hack this in yourself, an advanced posting tool (you already have a reply box at the bottom of the forum pages you visit where you can type a message and press "quick reply" and it posts the message. Similar things for a quick quote and quick edit).

Haha, same here.. I was like "what the.... what is this?", altho I had an email from "shrinkray" instead of the normal emailer about post updates....

On the other hand... Sana.. I have the ability now to "Save" a reply when I make one.. (I did quote... and then i had the option to Save (the draft)... dunno what that was for. I don't have it when I edit my message (what I'm doing at this moment btw).
there's more

Yes, quick replies!
Screenshot tag would be also really useful.
