Aaaaah! It's all new and different. I don't like change! Change it back! Aaaaah!

In all seriousness though I like the new look, sleek and stylish. It's going to take a bit of getting used to though.

Well I usually save as I go, usually do the draft in a word program, before posting it to my blog... but to get the old ones that I want back in the blog, I will have to post them again.. oh well can't be helped

I had a heart attack when I tried to go to Speculative Vision earlier today. That's what I get for not reading up in the "Community Forums"-section. :lol:

But hey, all news are bad news. Uh, I mean, I like the new look. Yeah, that's right. It looks, uh, streamlined. Yes, exactly my thoughts... :mrgreen:


...I'll just go and hide under my rock in the Lycoria-section now. Hisssssss.... :twisted:

Hmm...it loaded up just fine for me, with all the formatting controls intact. Are you still having a problem?

If you want to wait for more options DK you can stick with the default/forum integrated template while you get your reposts going. I should have a couple more templates made in the next few days :)

Everybody please let me know if you get any missing page errors from the script. You will know because it will be nicer format than your typical server error. I had a couple stray missing templates and I hope I got them all.

it seems the BBCode was off... and now it is on, and the smilies are on...

But only the basic smilies are working, when I click on the extra ones in the spearate window, the code does not appear... ?

Edit: They are working now, forget what I said... strange... :scratch:

Well I don't plan to post all the old stuff all at once, I will spead it out, doing about one old one a week, with a new post each week as well... Besides I plan to edit or update some of the old ones...

Got something on torromow anyway, so the earliest will be Friday {US time} that I get the blog going with a new post..
