Hello everyone!  LOL

Reloaded's forum is being upgraded to the newest version of IPB... IPB 3.2. This new version will fix errors, increase speed, and provide us with the best tool we could have: a built-in skin designer. Gone are the days of fat skins slowing down the site. We will be able to create our own lightweight skins.

New Features:
http://www.invisionp...e/whats_new.php

-Brand New Style
-Tagging
-Visual Skin Editor (:P)
-"Like" Reputation Mode (Similar to the "Like" feature on Facebook)
-New rich text editor
-Instant quick reply
-Auto-save draft in editor (So when your writing long posts, you won't lose them.)
-Inline photo cropping

A preview of IPB 3.2:

During this upgrade process, please don't be alarmed if certain features of the forum disappear. We will attempt to make this upgrade smooth, and easy.

That's all for now.  :sweat:

Welcome to the new Reloaded! We're now running on IPB 3.2.

We're actually using a better skin, without alot of images. This will speed up the loading process. You may also notice our new menu at the top of the forum. Staff can now add links to the menu. If a staff member wants to add a link, PM me.

I have rebuilt the forum's cache. This means mostly everyone should see the new forum. If the forum doesn't look like the images below, force refresh with the key combo Ctrl-F5, or clear your browsers cache.

Feel free to post suggestions, and bugs in the Suggestions & Comments forum, or email one of the staff.

Hmm, the new skin will need some getting used to... BTW, what happened to the red-on-white-background skin? I kind of liked it more than the red-on-black-background one.

There's a version of that for the new IPB. I plan on installing it soon. :sweat:

Okay, Red Pro 3.2 is now available from the skin selector at the bottom of the forum. LOL

Logo was changed, and the shoutbox was added.

Thanks a lot! Somehow I find the black text on white background more readable :) It's also nice to see that there are no more wide margins/vertical columns at the sides of the screen (I guess those work fine on a widescreen monitor though).

No problem. I also like that skin myself. It's not like other light skins. It's very much readable, and cool looking. :cool:
