Yes, it's quite different to the former one.
Looks like too many others now :s
And why must every post be approved... I have to check this ;)

Agreed, the layout is too "generic" but it is possible to make it look really good. Serenade did an awesome job on the layout of the old bh forums and we were running phpBB as well. It looked really stylish and did not look like your typical gaming forum at all, I was really pleased with the way it looked.

I noticed we have 2 spam members already. There's a possibility to let people answer a simple question when they register somewhere in the admin control panel and that's a very effective counter measure against spammers.

Lol, just figured out I can approve my own posts, that'll save you some trouble and I banned the 2 spammers :) .

One suggestion I have for the question when registering is a simple math test: 6 + 6 = ?

That should make it easier to enforce the "no heavies rule" :twisted: .

There could be some downtime because of server restarts and forum settings.
Please wait.... Windows Users should now ;)

cheers,

Just get in game, I'll shout at you the entire time. Or better yet, I'll get whitney in ft with you. :lol:

You can embed youtube clips now.

Since there aren't any Argentinians registered yet, I figured I'd post my favourite Bergkamp goal (it was the match decider in the quarter finals of the World Cup in 1998)

:twisted:
