I have been making some changes to the top menu bar.  Now the 78ta.com link and the chatroom link are located as buttons in the menu bar.

Thanks Brett, the tabs for the main site and chat will come in handy and make it easier to move around the site.

Hitman,
This looks great. ;D I guess the main thing I miss is the listing in the space by the avatar that tells where the poster lives  :-\(if they provide that information).
Thanks again.

Hitman,
Never mind my previous post.:-[ :-[ I figured it out; you need to add your location in the profile where it says personal text. Thanks.

Yes, some of the information transfered over with no problems.  Other things did not go so well.  Just like how it dropped off the first letter in everyone's signature.  That is why I mentioned to update your profile when you sign on...... update the location, signatures, birthdays, etc.  There is alot more that this forum can do as compared to the old one.  So, it is time to take advantage of all of the new and cool features.

I love it ! the red on black was unique and cool, but this is much better on the eyes. How does a page look with gold on black? Maybe on your special edition page? No complaints here, your doing all the work and I appreciate every bit of it.

I've got another idea to share.  When you click on a forum you can see who is viewing threads in that forum, what about being able to see who is online and viewing what forums at the main forum page instead of having to click, say, General Discussion or Shows and Events.

Again, just another thought to consider.

Rich..... If you are on the main page, there is a link at the bottom that says something like 3 Guests, 4 Users Online..... if you click on that link, it will show you who is online and what part of the forum they are on.  Of course in my view, I also see the IP they are posting from which you will not see, but check out the photo below.
