From today, our forum accepts OpenID logins. This might ease the registration process for some new users.
The avatar size is changed to 100x100 pixels.
Some more changes to the site and forum...please let us know if anything does not work for you!
Users can now send each other personal messages (PM).
If you do not want to receive PMs, change the email settings in your profile.
Users can mark a post as news. This is listed in the news link in the forum menu. Only use this for real news!
Front page news is now displayed regardless of active responses, so responding to old topics does not bring up old messages.
I installed a spam plugin but disabled captcha's. Please let me know in case the forum nags you with one.
Ah yes, and Aprone kindly suggested to help us fight spam so we've added him to the moderation team! Thanks Aprone!
The forum software has been updated to the newest version. I hope this keeps out some of the spammers.
Feb 10 2012:
- Forum software update
- New style available (Urban) which is set to default. Features Audiogames Logo and other more user-friendly features. The old blue 'Oxygen' style is still available and probably default for most of you. You can test the new style if you like by selecting it in your profile.
Hi! The login issues on the main site (favorites) are now solved. I disabled this during our database meltdown, but forgot to enable it when the database was up again. Thanks Dark for bringing this up and thank you all for your patience!
Hurrah! thanks sander, now we can also get back to adding stuff to the db as well.

Added some additional security features to prevent an additional hexed XSS exploit, kindly suggested by a student team of White Hat Hackers.
After a serious hack and block, for now, the following actions have been performed:

Functionalities User Karma and Posts to RSS are back.
