Lots of updates over the last week have just gone live. Here's a quick run down of what's happened.

User Facing Features:
- More intuitive sub forums (Want to see every level?)
- Mark All Read for PMs
- Online Indicators with Xfire
- Redesigned user icons
- Way more video embed BB Codes
- Steam profile links
- Auto updating timestamps (be aware: this uses your computers clock for updates -- if your time is off, weird things may happen)
- Much faster page download (compressed js and css)
- True read/unread tracking
- Snazzy new thread/forum icons (Zimmer!)
- Topic and Post counts are now true (this fixes the "threads are longer than they appear" bug)
- Minor styling updates here and there
- Ads are removed for logged in users
- For the unlucky, temp bans can now be set to any duration by moderators, be it 30 seconds or 30 years. They can also set hard dates.
- Page titles have been flipped so they will read easier if you have many tabs open
- "You must wait [60, 59, 58, 57, 56...] seconds to post"

Forum Structure Changes:
- General structure changed
- Posts from "Consoles and Console Games" have been merged into "All Other Games"
- Posts from "Crysis" have been merged into "All Other Games"
- Posts from "BF2 >> General" have been merged up to "Battlefield 2"
- Posts from "BF2142 >> General" have been merged up to "Battlefield 2142"

Behind the Scenes Work:
- Completely revamped the sub forum tech MUCH nicer now
   This was a massive code undertaking. Most of which you will see no effect of, but trust me, it was awesome.
- Overhauled online.php
- Cleaned out YEARS (literally!) of unused old files
- Put the forums under Subversion (when I started these, I didn't know what a VCS even was...)
- Patched up with all current PunBB and FluxBB security patches (was waaaay behind )

Thanks to everyone that helped test the new forums over the weekend!

I ate them. Delicious.

(It's the small side effect of infinite subforuming)

It's awesome, I love it. +1

My only complain would be, can we not have all the sub forums hidden or the text made smaller when you view the index? It's a bit confusing right now.

It would have made sense to me to move all BF3 topics to a BF3 section under Battlefield Series, but it's still

Maybe add an "expand" link/button on the index page to "see every level" of the subforums?

Great Chuy, thanks for the work.

So while you're here, what's your thinking/planning with Trackr? Sorry if you've already answered that, not here enough to read everything.

Hmmm what about the time?
Everything that is posted now is listed like it was posted 7hours ago?
Do i have to change the timezone again or will this fix itself? (it worked fine before).
