    We still have some work to do so please be patient if some things are not working correctly.

    The new forum software is a drastic improvement and you may feel a bit disoriented for the first day or so. Stick with it and once you get the hang of it, you will never look back. Here are some things to try:
    • Like a thread or post: in the bottom right of the post boxes there is a "Like" button. Top liked threads will appear in some sidebars.
    • "PM" another member: PMs are now called Conversations and are much easier to follow the conversation. You can even invite another member to the conversation or lock it to keep it private.
    • Mention a member: Put an @ in front of a members name and they will be notified that you mentioned them in a post.
    • Search the forum: Yeah we had this before, but search has been drastically improved.
    • Change the theme color and background: in the bottom corner of the site there is a button called "AD Styler". Click it to create your own forum style.
    • Go get a snack: If you are in the middle of a message, your draft will be saved automatically. You can come back to a thread up to 24 hours later and resume your saved draft.
    • Upload photos: No more relying on photobucket or other external sites. Posting images is super easy. Next to "Post Reply" click " "Upload a file".
    • Upload and download models: A pretty incredible download system. It's not ready yet, but we will be opening it up for testing over the next few days to long time members and contributors.
    There is still a lot to be done and will be working on this site throughout the week. If you need some help getting accustom to the new site please start a thread in the support forum with your question and we will give you a hand.

    I am currently working on getting the RESOURCE Section (A.K.A. DOWNLOAD Section) built and all of the file templates loaded.
    This will take some time (Unfortunately I do not know how long it will take).
    So please be patient.

    Adding an extra pack of emoticons is on the to do list! How can we be expected to express our vast array of emotions with only 12 emoticons?

    Take your time, you said that you were going to integrate some files that belong to eachother, that takes time but makes things much more convinient.
    I will be the last to complain about you taking the needed time for doing all that.
    Thanks for your effort!!

    Cheers,

    Finally I can start to update my threads. It will take a while to get used to this site. It is a bit different from the other sites that I post on. Good to be back.
