As I am sure you have noticed, we have started to make a few changes to the forum. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions:<br><br><b><i>Have the upgrades been completed?</i></b><br>
- No. We are still in the process of updating the entire site.<br><br><b><i>I hate that the forum is narrower than it was. What's up?</i></b><br>
- We have not yet completed the upgrade that will allow users to choose between fixed width (the way it currently is) and relative width (the way it was). This is a top priority and will happen very soon.<br><br><b><i>The FAQ section is strange! It's not categorized and other weird things are happening. Again, what are you guys up to?</i></b><br>
- It will take up to 2 weeks to fully upgrade the FAQ section. But it will be back soon!<br><br><b><i>The fonts are the wrong color.</i></b><br>
- We are in the process of correcting all font colors.<br><br><b><i>I can't upload an image signature.</i></b><br>
- We have never allowed image signatures here. Sorry for the inconvenience. This option will be removed from the usercp.<br><br><b><i>The Discussions block is bigger than the News block.</i></b><br>
- We will fix it shortly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>The Latest Discussions block no longer shows the time/poster.</b><br>
- Three options here: (1) mouseover the title for that info (2) Click on Latest Discussions for a more detailed list or (3) wait just a bit until we decide about making that area wider so we can add some of that info back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b><i>I can't update my system specs.</i></b><br>
- Working on it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
More to come...

Awesome! Keep up the good work! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Question: Are we allowed to post comments on our own FAQ's anymore?<br />
<br />
because I can't, are there new rules now?<br />
<br />
<div style="margin:20px; margin-top:5px; ">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px">Quote:</div>
<table cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="99%">
<tr>
<td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset">

You may not post new threads<br />
You may not post replies<br />
You may not post attachments<br />
You may edit your posts

</td>
</tr>

The answer is the FAQs are not completed <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
"- It will take up to 2 weeks to fully upgrade the FAQ section. But it will be back soon!"

Great work, admin! Everything looks cool, can't wait for relative width, though! <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Also, I don't think the signature picture feature is working. I tried uploading a picture 200x40 at 12KB and it told me it was unable to. I don't know if you know already (not mentioned in this thread) but just bringing it up.<br />
<br />
Keep it up, we all love you! <img src="/images/smilies/wubsmiley.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wubsmiley" class="inlineimg" />

Just updated the FAQ above:<br />
<br />
<b><i>I can't upload an image signature.<br />
</i></b>- We have never allowed image signatures here. Sorry for the inconvenience. This option will be removed from the usercp.

</div>Heh... I noticed that was in my User CP and I thought it was a new feature you guys were allowing or something, and I tried it and it didn't work haha.<br />
<br />
Also, waiting to upgrade sys specs to update my mouse to display my new G5 mouse <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Looks great though. It'll be better though when we can change the width to the relative width of the window though <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick out tounge caps" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Lookin' good though admin, keep it up!

Lol, when I logged on just now and saw that jackolantern by the OCN logo I thought this new look was a Halloween prank or something <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> but I'm glad to see you guys are working on the only 2 things that really bugged me, the wrong font colors and the fixed width which looks really bad on my monitor, it's like only half of my screen. I was glad to see the easier repping in place on Carforum.net and I'm glad to see it here too, it was a great idea. Keep up the good work.
