Topic for feedback/bugs on new BFS website and forum skin.

First off, nice new skin! Good job NYR Posted Image

Suggestion: it would be nice if the menu on the frontpage is replaced by the menu from the forums (home, news, projects etc.). So that you have one style while navigating from forum to website etc.

They are the same.  You might be loading a cached copy of the old nav.  If you manually refresh the page it should load the new one, or else clear your browser's cache.

Nice job NYR_32, looks nice and clean on my iPod Touch too

Let's just hope it doesn't get blocked at some hotspots (under gaming & social media, ie Facebook)

Most importantly, it is a MUCH newer and more secure version of the forum software.

It seems to be relative width which depends on your screen size. Personally I also prefer a fixed width at about 1000px wide. But this is just a decision one has to make I guess :) Everybody has a different preference probably.

For the announcement stuff like your website / forum announcement might want to see if there is any sort of way to make it more visible or catch the readers eye. Truthfully I only noticed it now as had apparently passed over it before.

The mobile forums are working like a charm. I tried them out on my android. Now if we can get TapaTalk to work, we'll be good to go :).

I like the new looks of both the forums and the new Ground Branch page, but found a couple of spelling errors. First is on the Introduction page in this sentence:

"We are not taking the moral high ground but players will sense the impact of thier actions."

It should be their.

I can't remember where I saw the other one, but if I can find it will post back in this thread.
