    Alright guys I have been considering doing this for a while, I have even made a default layout on another hosting site. I want to lay everything out here and get your opinion on it.

    I'm considering creating a new forum for LSG and moving to a new host. Now the reasons for this are as follows:

    - The host has better customization options imo.
    - The forum looks WAY better already and I haven't even done much to it.
    - I've felt like this forum has been slowly dying and I'm sick of the limits on design.
    - We can properly launch it if we get some sort of competition or something to get some members.

    Now, if I do this, you will all lose your posts and ranks. That's the major downside to this. I know it seems like starting all over again and all that but I think that there are too many irrelevant posts on here that are pointless and I've been lenient about it because I wasn't too bothered tbh but you can't say that if you have say 300 posts that all those posts are quality posts that people will gain from reading. It's more of a chat room.
    (I know I'm guilty too lol)

    Do you agree?

    If the 10 or so active members don't have a problem with this then I would be happy to put some time into making it awesome and then setting up something to get some active members for an official launch. So guys, let me know what you think. This is something I really want to do but wont if no one else wants it.

    UPDATE: I just want to add now that the new layout on this is looking amazing. I'm in love with it. I'll show you guys a print screen when I've done a bit more. Very Happy


    UPDATE: As promised, a quick print screen of a part of the home page.

    A few things you'll notice. It's cleaner, it looks more professional. Yes, that is a chatbox you see. The icons for your profile and what not look awesome imo. Finally, yes I blurred out the web address. I want to not let anyone start using it until it's fully done and working.

    Well my 421 posts make me feels special, but I am all for it. I mean it looks sexy right now, I can't even imagine what else you could do to it. Just curious but can I still be a Veteran? I wouldn't mind having, seeing as how I am loosing my rank as it is now. I just got an idea for a symbol type thing for it. I can try to make it and upload it to you if you'd like.

    Post count isn't really important.

    Positive feedback so far Very Happy Yeah I'll try to find some time to add a veteran group. Almost done now, added the ranks and what not last night. Took quite a long time Sad but it's done now. I used a pre-existing ranking system for it and got rid of the current one which is pretty shameful tbh lol...

    We really need to get some new people in here. I mean all of this hard work that you are putting in to it. I think that once the new forum is all settled, you should post a promo on LSG's youtube, channel. Then, make a giveway/competition, and the winner can get a promo to his channel uploaded. Just an idea, could be tweaked.

    Right, the new forum is basically done excluding maybe a few things that probably have problems and I'll have to fix as we use tbh. Do you wanna go check it out and sign up? Right then, here it is:

    Remember, let's try and keep the posts a bit more sensible this time, I will if you guys do Wink
