Latest updates
  1. TPOM (Top Poster Of Month) has been added you will see a nice purple banner displayed in your postbit and on your profile
  2. Live Statistics on the site, you will see a sidebar widget with Latest Posts/Latest Threads.
  3. Site should be bug free so if anyone can let me know how the site is running and if you can see any problems please let me know.
I made the site logo and if anyone has some design skills please post some new ones below for me to look at and others - should we change the current one?

Got a nice update coming over the weekend for a better way to display articles and getting better content showing on the site.

Hope everyone is enjoying the site as it comes to its first month of being open, its come around quickly and i haven't started to advertise it yet ... remember keeping safe and well is the most important thing in this crazy times.

More updates to come over the next week or so.

Site News

I've been thinking about removing the membership completely and maybe just allowing regular members have all the site extra goodies for free, why bother trying to get someone to buy it its not really needed and to be fair I want everyone to enjoy the cool features on the site. As from now im going to disable membership and allow you all to have access. Happy Friday everyone and enjoy the weekend and stay safe 😀

P.s if anyone needs help finding how to change or try out the features its mainly on your profile page and in the user tap dropdown in the navigation bar.

Site News 28.07.20

Xenforo had a major update a few weeks back for those who are not sure what that is its our software that the forum runs on and I can safely say that its the best.

Now in the coming days I may decide to upgrade as it seems that many customers have given great feedback and most of the add-ons we use have been updated to run it.

I'll make an announcement before I go ahead and put the site on lockdown;)

Hope everyone is well until next time :)
