    I've been working on tweaking the site and the color schemes a bit. Everyone should be using the new style now if you see anything not working or text missing let me know so I can get it working correctly.

    Also should you not want to use the new layout you can click down the bottom left corner on the text that says "DaBears 2013" and revert to the default style.

    Any chance we can get the toolbar buttons something other than orange?

    Go figure, the lone Packerfan has a problem with the Burnt Orange.

    No, no..... just maybe the TOOLBAR as blue.... and the toolbar buttons as burnt orange.

    See how the blue provides a border around your avatar... like that, but the buttons should remain orange.

    But, now that you mention it... I COULD make a GB theme.... lol...

    Before I went on vacation, I was working on a smilie category fix. So we can add all our old smilies.

    This place is coming along nicely and I'm extremely glad we moved off vbulletin.

    In the mix as well, I'm debating on moving from selling ads to pay for the site, to just donations. That will make the speed faster and look cleaner.

    In the end, we are moving forward nicely and this new site is 100 times better and will never look back.

    I think you should stick with the old Superfan system. If people think it runs sluggishly because of ads, then they should become Superfans :) If not, then they dont get to complain about ads.

    I'm talking with the staff on ways to eliminate ads for members. Guests will be the ones with ads.

    Also have some other ideas to keep ads off....

    Jimmors, I think (not sure) one of the speed issues is the speed of the HOST server.... Sure, your page runs slower when you get ads, but I think the adservers also slow down the server... which will effect everyone.

    I think.
