For now, if you don't like the default theme, go into your profile, go to look and layout preferences, and choose one of the other ones that are available.  Test1 is just the default theme with bigger fonts.  Themeis is pretty nice, and is what I will probably base one of the United SpongeBob skins off of.  IZ is working on bringing back the blue skin that we used.

It's all good. It has just about all of the same featues as IPB. All we need is a new skin which doesn't even matter, anyways.

You guys should have gone to myBB. Even vBulletin is better than this. MyBB is awesome.

Do you read?

Everyone: We needed to move to a more secure forum, it is that simple.  Because of the licensing costs of Invision Power Board (and our out-of-date license), there has been investigation for some time about alternatives.

PHPBB is simply not secure.  Period.  It's free, has a decent templating engine, but that is all it has going for it.

vBulletin looks terrible, and seems slow.

Simple Machines is very speedy (has anyone else noticed the responsiveness of the website), the main URL's are clean (and bot safe) and the templating engine is VERY COOL.

Give it some time while cmonkey and others work on getting a nice spongebob theme up.  For now, stop wining, this IS the forum software we're using.  Try to get used to it, and expect a new skin soon.

(And stop complaining about the dam smilies! =)

Anyway...stop complaining about the forums.  Be glad we even have forums up...

And SMF is fine.

Any forum is okay, as long as we have one.

Heh, perhaps you never saw the "forum" we were running on during the month we were hosted at 1&1.  I swear, we would have been better off mailing napkins back and forth with posts written on them.

Now cmonkey, find a mod in simplemachines.org of Fast Reply =P

Weirdly, the forums is a bit slow for me, before when USB was in IPB, it was much faster O_o

Dang, I haven't been on in a while.  Anyway, the skin will take a lot of getting used to, but with whatever happened, I'm just glad the forums are up.

Dude, there is quick reply... it says "Quick Reply".  You might have to change it in your profile.  Anyway, it may be slow the first time before your browser caches everything.

You forum lord, in your new skins, make the links stand out in some way, be it color, underlining, blinking, whatever, just make them look different from regular black text.

Well, the new forums are okay. And this Marquee thing is the awesomeness!!!!!

MARQUEE IS ZE AWESOMENESS
Also, smileys are so much better then the old ones. :mellow: :huh: ^_^ :lol: B) :rolleyes: -_- <_< :wub: :angry: :unsure: :wacko: :blink:  :ph34r:

One thing though, bring back the old USB banner at the top. The simple text saying United SpongeBob Forums is just so plain!

Anyway, great forums!
