Welcome to the new Forum, and website
Welcome to the new forum and the new website.
Those of you with long memories will see that this forum looks very similar to the one we used to have way back pre-2009. The difference is that it is properly integrated with the rest of the site.
The forum uses the open-source myBB software and allows you to send private messages, rate threads, identify and aggregate new posts, and actually edit your posts too.
If you have any difficulties please let us know.
On the new website more generally, please let us know if you see anything - broken links, pages not displaying as they should, etc. We are already aware of two relatively major problems that we are trying to resolve:
1. A fault (which seems to be restricted to IE8) that carries out a forced close and recover when transitioning between pages - if you encounter this, please let me know (including which browser you are using and the pages you were moving between, for debugging purposes).
2. A rendering problem with the "slider" pictures on the front page (you'll know what I mean if you see it)
I hope that these can be ironed out in the near future and that they don't cause you too many problems.
