The forum has been upgraded from v 2.1.4 to v2.2.2. Subsequently new skins need to be added. This will be done over the never few days. Until then we simply have to live with the default skin. If there are any skins you'd like to see added, link to them in here.

With the upgrade comes new features, such as blacked-out spoilers, an acronym maker and the option to toggle the side panel (when posting).

I disabled the ability to rate each other (it just seems silly), and I've increased the max avatar size to 150X150.

Why is this showing time an hour back? I checked my time zone setting and it's correct. I even switched Auto-Correct for DST off and changed it myself and all the times on the board are still an hour early. In fact, if I check DST off, it goes back another hour and becomes two hours early.

Okay, I adjusted DST and added 60 minutes to the clock, so it should be correct. If it winds up an hour ahead, let me know so I can remove those 60 minutes.

Are we going to establish new etiquette for spoilers now? I imagine if the spoiler warning is in the topic, and the spoiler listed is about that topic, it can be highlight-free.

Yes. If the topic title clearly indicates spoilers are contained within, spoiler tags need not be used. However, if other issues / movies / TV shows / whatever are mentioned in the thread, spoiler tags should then be used.

For example, if the title says Captain America #25 SPOILERS, talk of the issue is fair game. However, if you'd like to bring up something from another book which relates to the topic but might be considered a spoiler, the tags should be used for that.

Yoda, did you do this all yourself?

Nope. These new features were included in the upgrade from v2.1.4 to v2.2.2.

Speaking of new features, we can now note reasons for editing posts. Here, watch...

Any way to get rid of the oversized Invision logo at the top left? Didn't that used to say Earth-2 there instead?

Consider it done.

Exactly what is with the Group Icon thing under our avatar? If the old moderater tags don't work, I suggest customizable/distinct ones (eg an anime or Sonic themed one for me.)

It says "group icon" because the icon is missing at the moment. New ones will be uploaded soon enough.

And I cannot give each user a specific icon. There might be a modification which allows this, and I'll look for one, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Sorry, I want to make sure I know how this works.

Well, that is easy enough.

I'm having way too much fun with these new features. What do the other ones do?

The only time I had to log back in was after the forum upgrade. If you have your computer set to delete your cookies and temporary internet files each time you log off, that might explain it.

I was just going to say that. You need to enable cookies for this site.

I'm working on a dark skin right now, as a matter of fact. Still a few kinks to work out, so it might be a few more days.
