Looks like my account didn't migrate. Ah well. I also can't open anything on the old forums. Just get redirected back to the new ones.

Yeah, the old forums still need to be locked down and adjusted for their url location. Hopefully that'll get taken care of tonight.

Cool, looking forward to it. This is certainly a strange feeling, seeing everything updated long after so many are gone.

Yay, forums. Couldn't log in with my old account, but I like this name better anyway and it's not like I posted all that often. Is there a good chance this forum will behave better than its predecessor?

The header needs a link back to the comic. I've used Image many times..... :ninja:

Considering the old board was running on 14 year old software, can't see how it could do worse.

Thanks for the suggestion. Darkmorford made the change and that should work now.

Yay new forum! May it work better than the last. I know I've not been registered for very long (and haven't posted much during that time) but it is interesting to be here for such a big event.

If Darkmorford would rig it so it will open up in a new tab, it would be perfect. :idea: Not trying to bitch, just suggesting a tweak. I appreciate everyone's efforts here; you've kept a lot of features of the old site, in a sweet looking new package.

That's not quite as simple, but he's going to look into it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Okay... New forum... It even has that "new forum" smell, kind of like "new car" but a bit more blue... (and somehow my computer recognises this place without even being told to.)
Now all we need is a new comic to comment on in this new forum.

Okay, I think I got it. Both the logo image and the "MegaTokyo" breadcrumb link should open the main page in a new tab (or a new window, if that's how your browser is set up).
