No problem.

However, I understand that the new forum is somehow a bit "destabilizing" because of its differences. But we'll do our best to make it a lot better than the old one.
Currently, some polishes could be needed. ;)

I am having an issue when loading the page to create a new topic. A script keeps getting hung up. The script in fault is wc.js and it is an issue with line 6. I think it has something to do with the while loop that is on that line and the check for the bbcode smileys. That is my guess but it isn't letting me load the page at all because of it.

Thanks for reporting this issue. I've temporarily disabled the WYSIWYG smilies (that was buggy), so it should not lag the page load now. ;)

Yep. Not sure what's changed but whatever it was, changed my mind. I love it now!

Personal preference, but Vanilla is less cluttered than phpBB ( and of course easier to customize and modify ) - many features are available as addons. ( Example with only a few addons : http://tama63.co.uk/vanilla/index.php?p=/ - not sure if it would be okay to link this sandbox, feel free to remove it if it isn't )

PHPBB is very easy to modify and customize with some codes tweaks... ;)
I don't think that you can see that here but a lot of hours have already been spent to setup this new forum. We'll continue with it as much as we can knowing it really offers a nicer user experience AND moderators/admin experience. :)

However, ALL suggestions to improve this new forum will be took in account and will probably be easier to setup than before. ;)

The new forum is awesome! It'll need some time to get used to but still lot less buggy than previous one! Two things (for now): I like the old spoiler look (that red ribbon), can it be changed possibly? Also could you remake the page with helpful tips how to post (helps with BBCode right?) ;)

EDIT: Also you should add the Minecraft account name to profiles so anybody can see your account name (if you want them to). - Like it was on the old forum. Also twitter and facebook.
