Note: The new forum is up and running and the old forum is now closed. Links to the old site are being redirected and handled by the new site.

Here's a list of some of the changes:

All new forum theme, updated for 2013! The updates to the theme include:

      New website logo!  8)
      New Alerts and Notification system ('!' icon next to the logo) that can be configured from your profile. You can turn on and off notifications for receiving personal messages, replies to posts, good/bad reputation points and more!
      Clickable icons to access our social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, Blog and Amazon. If you plan on buying something from Amazon, click on our logo first - we will get credit for your purchase! Shop at Amazon and help out the website!  :)
      New landing page that has all the latest posts, articles and information in one easy to read page. Find out everything that's new on the site in a glance.
      Content photo sliders and photo viewers - coming soon to the front page!
      Related posts at the end of each message for more convenience. (coming soon!)
      Integrated photo viewer (Highslide) across all areas of the website for a better and more convenient photo viewing experience.
      Soundcloud audio files are now supported in messages using the Soundcloud BBC buttons!
      Amazon and Ebay search buttons in the message editor.
      All new graphical linktree display for easier navigation (looks best on CSS3 enabled browsers)
      New menu bar with CSS3 animation and better color.
      Easier to read information center in the message index.
      Tooltips for messages in the message index. View a snip it from the first post in a message by hovering over it in the list of topics. (coming soon!)
      Added social media icons to user profiles for Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, DevianArt and Pinterest.
      Added the ability to select your country flag in your profile. (no yet implemented)
      Rating system for messages, including a 'like' system for replies. (not yet implemented)
      Social Media authentication system  - log on using your Facebook account; link your current account to Facebook or register your new account using Facebook. (coming soon!)

There are a number of new features and enhancements to the site, including:

      Blog system. Allows you to create, edit and manage your own blog and share with the rest of the members. Working on a new project and want to share your progress? Create a new category and add a new entry as work progresses. Visit a new record store and want to document your latest crate dig? Share it on your blog! You can control who can see your posts and who can comment.

      Classified Ad Section. Have something to sell? Post your item as a fixed price listing or an auction. Looking for a new turntable or maybe some records? Browse the ads and see what's new! Includes payment processing for transactions through Paypal. There is also a built-in trader feedback system for leaving positive/negative feedback for each transaction.

      File Downloads. This section will be for sharing user manuals, repair guides, brochures and other technical information. Looking for a manual for a Technics SL-1200 turntable? A repair guide for a Revox B77 reel to reel? There's a good chance you'll find it in the download section.

      Media Gallery. The Media Gallery will be basically unchanged from the old site, although the files that were in the old gallery will need to be re-uploaded. Over the coming weeks, I will do my best to import as much as I can from the old site. The biggest difference between the old Media Gallery and the new one is speed - it has been tweaked and streamlined for faster access.

      Knowledge Base and Link Exchange. These are basically the same as the old website, but they were upgraded to newer versions and more streamlined.

      Newsletter. A new and improved newsletter system that will keep you up to date with the latest forum activity. Members can subscribe and unsubscribe.

There are a number of other new features in the works - I'll post updates as they are added. If you have any questions or problems - feel free to send a personal message to Admin or BSD2000.

Thanks for your patience!
