Ozzu has been upgraded to a newer version of phpbb and will probably be set to go live tonight sometime. With this upgrade there are a few drawbacks. Ozzu will no longer support its original template and it will be removed forcing all members to use the currently active template. We did some research and found that only 5% of the members here are using the old design and therefore it is not worth our time to continue to support it.

Other than that there will be a few additions to this forum, and a few more changes which I will announce after the upgrade.

The forum upgrade is complete. There are still some secondary installations that I will be performing over the next few days. If anybody notices any bugs, or anything acting buggy please post it here. Thanks!

Perhaps it's just me, but I've tried opening this thread several times and it won't open - just freezes up:

Otherwise everthing seems OK so far. I see you added the quick reply box. That'll ocme in handy. Thanks.

Whether or not you can delete, edit, etc. your posts can depend on which forum you're posting in. Check out the lower right-hand corner under the "jump to" menu for a list of what you can do in a particular forum.

Simply because you don't have delete permissions on this forum.

Yeah in this announcement forum nobody has delete/edit permissions. In other forums you should though.

I am warming to the new one however and I absolutely love the quick reply box!!!

Love Rose xoxo

I just realized something! :-p

With the new URI's google should be much more apt to index the pages right? because they don't rely on the variables passed through the url?

Yes, that is the main reason I did it. Also the forum pages will be showing PR now once they get indexed, unlike before where only the main page showed the PR of 7. The forum pages will probably vary in PR from 3-6 but should definetely be picked up faster than before.
