Yeah, so the hosting server was moved this morning, and NZism didn't survive the transition.

I'm slowly bringing things back, and have updated the forum to a new version as well, which has some bells & whistles. Many things will be broken in the mean time, just bear with it - I'll get things sorted!

The forum should be fairly usable in the interim, although the backup is from last night, so there are a couple of posts missing. Also all avatars and attachments are gone... so that means all the images you've attached to posts as well. Sorry!

Feel free to report any further problems.

Cheers,

Any chance the old skin will survive the transition?

Oh, did some people actually like it? Haha, I only ever heard complaints :P

I will see what I can do, but things are a bit busy atm and I imagine it will take a while. This new forum version has completely different theme files.

Cool, no biggy but yeah the whole Green and white thing really grew on me, it felt NZ themed too.

Interesting, I thought all the msg things were in the old one too? With the exception of two new buttons.

Also, thumbs up on the picture on the home page ;)

I knew something was fishy yesterday morning when I tried the site and got a 404...
atleast we got backups for most of the stuff, this skin looks clean and its a good change i think, maybe Alan can add some spice to it!!!

I liked the colourscheme of the old skin, but i personally wouldve liked to see it a touch darker maybe? Possibly even MORE greener? I dont mind this one though to be fair. Once we get some non-generic icons in there (If indeed thats possible) and a pretty banner (Im still a firm believer that mike's NZism Logo needs to be green, and would like to see it used on the site.) This place will be bangin'.

I dunno. I think this is God(Probably Bison. Lets be honest.) Giving us(Probably Alan. Lets be honest.) an excuse to update everything 2010 style.

My 2c. Im not trying to be an asshole and say 'do it like this, do it like that.'

He's the hero NZism deserves.
But not the one it needs right now.
So we'll hunt him.
Because he can take it.
Because he's not our Hero.
He's a Niuean Guardian.
A watchful poster.

I will be tinkering with the skin when I get some time to do so, and some logo update will happen as well...

The old colour scheme was great though maybe what Bill said could bring it up a notch.  Can we get a banner made too please RICHARD guys.

The only thing I do not like are the "new" poo looking emoticons.

electric, that sounds great.  You will have to wait to see what Alan has to say.

Don't like the smileys? I can change the set fairly easily.

edit: take a look through http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;type=12 
and see if there are any you like

LOL Bill bro, i dont like your idea about mikes logo being green. All our teams have the fern black. More familiar that way. Also it looks rude green. Also i want my t-shirt.

I think he is talking about the word colour and not the fern.  Well, I like the idea of the fern being a dark green but that is me.

The new emoticons remind me of msn ones.  They just seem really tacky.
