Forum upgrade

Postby admin » Sat Dec 24, 2016 10:39 am

Welcome to the latest version of the Australian Rocketry Forum!

As the previous forum backend was aging, we felt it time to give it a polished new finish which is cleaner and faster.

There are a number of things that look different, but we trust that everyone will enjoy the increased functionality.

Just in time for Christmas, we hope that everyone enjoys the gift that just keeps giving... the biggest free rocketry knowledge base!

Looking good ausrocketry.

Do you not have it in prime position on your browser favorites bar? Or an open tab on your mobile that never gets closed?

Open on mobile laptop and desktop,
failing that any of the brand names down the bottom should take you to the shop.

A permanent link to the online shop has been added to the top bar. A few links have also been renamed to make navigating the forum a littler easier.

Please kind sir - chance we will be allowed to have larger aviators?

Do you mean 'avatars'? Please give us some feedback of what you would like so the team can investigate.

That will be the autocorrect...
Yeah, the 80x80 pixel restriction, double that would be nice. By comparison TRF allows 125x125. Probably also need to up the max file size in line with increasing the pixels.
