    Dear friends, <br><br>I have some exciting news. <br><br>I have closed a deal with a professional forum company that will take this forum to a new level. We will move to a much better forum platform and get real admins. Trolls and so on will have a much harder time here, and uploading images will be a lot easier, too. <br><br>This is much needed, as the forum is growing very quickly. Careful extrapolation has it that this forum will very soon be the biggest slingshot forum in the world, and therefore we have to bring it over to a more serious platform. <br><br>Of course the goal is that this will be a very seamless transition. Of course s..t happens, so should you encounter any difficulties, let me know and I'll fix it. <br><br>I will of course announce the move as soon as I know details. <br><br>Greetings from Northern Bavaria<br><br><br>Jörg<br>

    I think we may get a new layout, too. When I renovate my living room, I want new tapestry as well!

    Damn.....I don't do well with change. I like the layout of this forum. Could always use more smiley face options. <br>Change of color would be ok. Just leave out the Rotating Bagel Art!!!!!<br><br>Congrats Joerg! You must be proud that you baby is growing up! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>Remember the K.I.S.S. rule

    awesome, and i agree with bert on K.I.S.S that is part of the reason i joined it had everything i needed as far as info with out being overwhelming ( aka SSF) were i am registered but i dont think i have ever posted anything. Also will you need supporters now? i am thinking like on the SSF, i am sorry i dont think i can help now (parents) but in the future i would like to lend a hand
