Hello and welcome to our new website. We might still be in the process of fixing a few issues so if you spot any please report them to the forum and we will get them resolved. The upgrade was mostly a cosmetic one with 2 major upgrades: responsive design and RepopSocial.
Our old website was well old. It was not very fluid or had support for phones or tablets. The new design is what is referred to as responsive. Based on the width of the browser it will adjust automatically the layout of the website. You should find the website wider than before if on a desktop and much easier to browser using a phone or tablet. There is also a font size adjuster at the bottom of the website and we will be adding in a dark theme option for those who have issues with a light theme (it might not be 100% perfect though, but it was requested). We hope the website serves us better moving forward and with the shift toward browsing from phones and tablets the website should be much easier to browser using those devices.
If an ongoing effort we are going to continue to add community tools and RepopSocial is the first start of that. Your website account is tied into RepopSocial so you should be already setup to start using the system if you have a website account. All website/forum information was migrated over so your previous username/password should be perfectly fine and the website/forum is tied together like it was before so you can login to either to get access to both. If you create a new account it will be done on the forum side as well and any new website account will work with RepopSocial.
We hope you enjoy the new look and we have a few further tweeks such as adding on the template for the forum and reskinning the mailing list software again for the new look. This should be taken care of in the next few days. If you run into any issues please let us know on the forums.
