    So Deron (aka Metal Ages) has been working hard on doing forum upgrades and making this a place people will actually want to come back to. Remember when this place was swamped and required 3 mods and a couple of subsections?

    Lots of great stuff from auto saving drafts (finally! Ever wrote the perfect post and the forum goes "nup." and you lose everything? No more!), login with your Google or Facebook account, galleries, and if you're on the desktop version of the site, look right -> Lots of great stuff along the sidebar.

    There's still a few wrinkles to iron out and a couple of features from the old forums that are going to come back in time, but I reckon this is a great start. I'll post a link up to the complete list of new goodies once they're locked in place.

    Let me know if anything isn't working though - I'll see if we can get it sorted out ASAP. :)

    Thanks man!

    Some of my quick favorite features of the new site are:

    • Mobile works like a dream!
    • Upload pics to your own media area, and then you can insert into posts from there easily.
    • Like posts
    • Tag people like this @Lord Tim
    • Cool sidebar for the bands
    So much more.. :)

    HA! Just moused over my @Lord Tim link above and remembered my user ID is 7. Like the 7th person to ever sign up to UM back when it was new. That's sorta scary!

    Wow looks different! I look forward to exploring it. If it could entice people to return here it'd be great. All very positive!

    Far out! Hadn't been to the page in a few days and wow! Very very cool. I'm intrigued by the 'Trophy Points'.

    Very nice! Hopefully this change will bring more attention to this place.

    I can't figure out how to jump to the first new post in a thread. Is there a way I'm not seeing?

    I ask the question, then finally find out the answer straight after posting. It's the little blue dot to the left of the thread title....
