The "join" link to register is in the top-right corner.
There will be a few changes to get used to. I haven't moved over all the smilies yet, and I will be adding them from smallest to largest - if a smilie is too big and breaks the display, I'll be leaving it out.
There isn't a Return to Index link in this new format - instead there is a "breadcrumb trail" at the tol of each thread, so to return to a forum's index, you would click the name of the forum in the breadcrumbs.
The new forums map one-to-one to the current ones, i.e. you have the same four forums.
It looks like you can only include one image per post, and you do it as an attachment. You insert the image into the box by browsing to it on your hard drive. The image will display inline in the post, but when I tested it, I couldn't see it at the preview stage.
To have a blog in the new community, at the moment you have to request one from me in the Oh, Pigpen forum, until I get a plugin installed which will apparently let new users enable a blog for themselves. The same goes for the photogallery. At the moment I don't have any formal policy for storage limits for the photo galleries... I'm adopting a wait and see approach.
The Squalor Survivors Network 54 forums will be closed from Oct 1 to new postings but will remain online for archival purposes.
On the page I linked to above, there is a link back to the Network 54 chat room. The link won't show how many users are in the chatroom, sorry. I would like a better chat room solution, but for the moment I think the new forum CMS will keep me busy enough.
