Part one of the new site is now live, with the rest hopefully following over the next few days. Database is no longer access and so there might be teething issues or it might all just work marvellously

Been working hard on the beta, if you log in to beta.freakcity.net you’’ll see some of the themes have been updated a touch, the forums have changed a little, you can now agree/disagree with posts, you can add user comments to your linked friends’ profiles and you can vote quotes good or bad from the front page using the wonder of ajax...\n\nI shall be adding some stuff to the events section and some new bits to the front page (your events, moving the news bit, word of the day, new members) as well as enabling users to edit what they see on the front page so you can customise it for you. What I need from youse people is for you to test it. Log in to the beta, play with it, see what’’s broken and what’’s not and generally give me feedback. As of today it should all work fine apart from image uploading...

There’s been a lot going on lately development wise. I’m almost ready to let people on the new code, but not quite. There’s still a fair amount to do though, especially on the mobile side of things. To get up to date news about what’s going on and access to the new code, join the beta group and help make this release of freakcity the best yet

There’s been lots of little changes over the last couple of days. The new toolbar appears in most places where you might need it (I may have missed a few, will tidy these up tonight!). We’re on a brand new shiny and much much faster server. Pictures have changed a tiny bit. You can now chuck any sized pictures at the system and it’ll resize them when you upload them. This is part of the code that’ll enable avatars...which I hope to implement soon. Searching the forums is now a lot faster, almost google speeds. I have changed bits of back end code to make things work a little better. Overall, you should basically see things working a bit nicer and pages being returned faster. There’s a little page counter at the bottom right of every page that tells you how long it took to render the page on the server, typically this takes less than a second per page now.

New themes and groups finished at last
Finished two new themes (well, it’s more like one and a half as they’re both the same apart from fonts). These are the best themes yet, they look better and also show off some of the behind the scenes work that went into version 2 as they’d not have been possible with the old site. Hope ya like them. There’ll be more soon...Also finished groups, you can now add and remove moderators to groups. Moderators can invite and remove people from groups as well as authorise them to join invite only groups.
