Currently installing and testing a new forum to utilize our domain name, and our web server.

Desired goal:

http://www.aof-clan.net/forums/index.php <---- Currently works

This link will be the entry URL to any new forum I decide to go with.

These forums now work.

http://www.aof-clan.net/forums

Registration has been turned off as development, then population of these forums progresses.

Feel free to keep an eye out on the progress.

As for my creative folks, I need to speak with you on graphical additions we could use.

I agree with you on that. It can be fixed. I'm rather new to the phpbb3 layout and administration, so I will have to play with it a bit. ;)

I absolutely dislike the color scheme, and I agree with the logo thing. The current color scheme is awesome, maybe you could tweak it a little, but that would be it. Besides that, I think walker's AoF orb is a good idea for the site. At least it's worth a try.

Well, the latest incident was pretty bad. We lost two days of forum posts. We cannot have the forums we currently have under the domain of www.aof-clan.net/forums unless we pay a lot of money.

Ah, then get to it, I guess. Though I would still go with something based on the current forum layout. And of course, is it possible to get rid of that HUGE phpbb sign on the top and replace it with AoF and its logo?

I haven't gotten around to the beautification of the forums yet.

There are a lot of back-end things I am working on. Like creating groups, setting permissions, figuring out the admin features, as well as the best way to structure the forums so that they are easily read.

Once I have that rolling THEN I will start working with visuals. However, I may need some custom works, and I need some graphics people ready to roll and work with me.

So if someone would like to help, I need an AoF image with the follwing dimensions, 139px × 52px and it should be a .gif file.

I'll try if u get noone else, because, to be honest, my artistic work is barely worthy of notice, but if noone else decides to get it, I'll work on it for ya. I would PM walker first if I were you, though.
