If you have a question about this new forum software, this is the place and time A small disclaimer, I will need to sleep from time to time (slept 4 hours during last 30 hour update process ) so replies will not come instantly
There are some KNOWN ISSUES:
Registration is closed util mail server has been tested and validated.
Forum does not email out anything (like notifications).
Searching for images does not get all results yet. Not all images are verified yet, and search "knows" it and rejects those images. The crawler will run
Gear database is surely missing some items, there is another thread for those in this forum.
Some gear may be in a wrong categories, please report those (or use the feedback link or PM me).
