    WoW, where to start... Best bet is to go explore as this is vastly different then the old site. And the few of you that might have noticed, yes I did borrow the skin from RCMT.net

    The only thing I have turned on at the moment are the actual forums as I will get to the rest over the next few days.

    Known issue: Videos are not displaying.

    To do: LOTS!!!

    I hate the new site, I may grow to like it similar to Facebook and their numerous changes. Videos are not working (I hope they are by Wednesday night incase I have a boring desk shift and the whole "members do not see advertisements." deal. That is annoying.

    Next time I will just keep the site down until I am 100% finished instead of trying to get things open and at least partialy working for you.

    Way to be a d!ck. How about you let Steven get all of the stuff sorted out before starting to bash him, after spending ridiculous amounts of money for our little internet forum.

    Everything smooth on my end so far other than the ads, which I'm sure will get taken care of once everything is released 100% for the new site. Kudos to you Steven - I would have had everything so FUBAR'd by now that it would be unsavable if I tried to do it :D

    It hasn't even been live for an hour and your complaining already? And if videos aren't showing here you can go to YouTube and search monster trucks for about 20,000 results. Just like anything new it's going to take some time to get used to it but there's 0 point in complaining and saying you hate it when it's been back up for less then 30 minutes.

    I like it, very nice Steven. So far the only issue I'm seeing is ads next to posts. They only seem to be on the first 1-2 posts in any thread right now.

    EDIT: Also I managed to get a video to embed in the video thread using video and /video in brackets []

    So I can't say negative feedback? All I am saying is right now, I do not like it. I am not trying to be a "d!ck" just stating opinion if you don't agree, I am fine with it just don't flame me for having an opinion. I thank him for the work but to me, there is still (quite a bit) work to do mainly with the ads and the videos.

    As for youtube, it doesn't work when I am at the desktop I have at my job on Wednesday because it needs a flash update from the last overhaul YouTube did. The worst part, is the download for the update does not work at all.

    Here's an idea - do your job that you're getting paid for instead of playing on Youtube.

    Maybe you didn't understand the part about the site not being totally finished yet - it's not going to look like this when it's done; the ads will be gone, and all of the video embedding will be correct.

    overall, I like the new site, its visually pleasing, and fairly easy to navigate, but Im already missing the normal black background. Is there any way I can change that on my end?

    I'm glad it's back up quite frankly, even though it's far from being at full power. I'd be glad to assist in anything I can to help as well, though I know I'm not staff.

    Michael, when the first words of your post are - "I hate it." That's not negative feedback, that's being disrespectful.

    Ok the gallery is back online.
    Links are up but I am holding those offline as there seems to be a small issue with that section.

    It will take some getting use too. First impressions for me is that it seems very confusing. I think the font sizes are all near the same instead of larger for thread titles and such. I was a fan of the old setup and like most people I dont like change LOL. But with time I will get use to it, I HOPE!!
