Update incoming!
«: November 15, 2010, 10:02:30 PM»
Just a heads up that FAM will be receiving an update within the next week. Please be advised that when the update is released FAM will no longer support a light and dark version of the theme. However, I'll be working on updating sections of the site to provide some more functionality.

Preview of the update:

Just curious: Are PMs or Trade Reviews lost once the site is updated?

Edit: wtf can't spell.

Nothing will be lost in the update except that we will no longer have a dark theme.

I carefully weighed the cost and effort of a dark theme against the amount of people using it and unfortunately there are not enough people using it to justify the extra work in maintaining both versions of the theme

In preparing for the upcoming update, all users are advised to reset their avatar settings (this is as simple as going to your profile options and just saving it again without changing anything). We have made some server changes to hopefully reduce some load time and it requires users to reset their avatars to help us achieve this reduction in load time.

Additionally, in the near future we will begin locking threads with 1,000 or more replies to them. Once threads reach this size they tend to pull on the database a little too much. A lock after 1,000 posts will not prohibit someone from recreating the same thread though to continue where the old one was locked.

Thanks for pointing that out. They were there, just hiding from the public. It should be fixed now.

Try one last time. I don't know why this setting keeps flipping back on me. Should be good to go now.

Some forum posts may have been lost in the upgrade.

We are working to restore them. However, it may not be possible.

It was appears I was able to successfully restore many of the lost posts. However, if a post you are looking for is missing, it is most likely gone for good. Sorry!

I miss the dark theme, but is there a reason I can't edit my alt lists?
