    Just somewhere to keep track of all the changes happening on the forums:


    • Removed the "Link to us" page - all images are dead for it anyway.
    • Redesigned the login box on all pages (It doesn't look stupid now)
    • Redid the "Community" module on the front page
    • Moved the donations box up on the front page
    • Fixed news post images overlapping the right hand sidebar on the front page
    • Updated the location of the EU server on the servers page
    • Fixed long edit reasons overflowing on top of the post control buttons.
    • Put http://demos.geit.co.uk live - to be moved to tf2maps.net soon, most likely
    • Thanks Thanks x 4

    Positive Ratings:

    • Fixed caching of styles, images and scripts - they are no longer reloaded on every page
    • Combined many script files to reduced HTTP overhead when loading pages for the first time
    • Compressed images on the front page, halved overall initial payload
    • Cleaned unused fluff out of some of the stylesheets and removed unused scripts.

    Overall, the site should be feeling snappier all round, if you notice any issues however, please don't hesitate to let me know. There's still some work to be done too; such as improving the analytics and advertising code.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
