Default New Avatar-Forums Upgrade

Considering our ties and where we all came from, I thought it appropriate to note what Avatar-Forums is doing now with the website:

Thanks for your understanding and continued support!
[From: Forum upgrade coming soon!]



All will notice, the forum layout has completely been changed to the regular, default look of any other vBulletin forum, where all other options have been removed.


....I love how the words are inserted: "Thanks for your understanding and continued support!" as if the changes were agreed upon by everyone.



...Thoughts?

I do seem to remember mentioning this would happen quite a while back.
Also, AF now has in-text ads? eurgh...

I think they've had those for about 3-4 months now. They were explained as "helping the website" alongside the picture ads when the donation system was done away with.

Fortunately, the donation system is back, but it's more like a counter system now, detailing how much more needs to be made for one month, instead of just representing a humble, charitable system that wasn't shown off...

...AF's come a long, long way.

That sucks, AF used to be just as amazing and close nit as TOS. Sad sad day.

Yep, this is why I'm personally happy with ToS.

I actually see hardly any ads on AF thanks to the adblocking of my browser, but nevertheless I still like this place more. The people who post here make it great too.

Lon and the devil are the same to me, I gave the man a chance to explain himself for his actions. He didn't, he destroyed a peaceful place. Our relocation made that clear. The bulk of the good community came, and it feels like old times still. It's almost been a year now. A year. I wish I could say that for other forums I've been on, this is very rare. And I'm damn proud of it.

Lon reminds me of an evil leprechaun. He'll lure you into his pot of gold, and steal all your goods and add them to the pot.... that evil midget.

Hahahahahaha oh god this made me laugh so hard, I love you for typing this, I feel the same way and that is the best way I've heard it described, I love everyone here and i hope it stays this homey forever. In fact if there's ever a money issue I'll probably end up donating a large cash sum or just choosing to be one of the main supporters of this site, This place feels like home for me and i would do anything to keep it this way <333

I don't go to AF any longer, but it's kinda sad to see what it's become At least we have ToS.

Yeah, it's been months since i've signed in there too. (I actually just decided to, just for some arbitrary reason.)

I think there are still a whole load of good people over there 'waiting to be discovered'. ( so to speak). I don't dislike the community or the people over there, I just can't contest the image of the site and it's layout in my mind. It's just too disheartening, remembering what it was like for those first amazing, brilliant months and seeing what it's become now.

Still, ToS is here now, and that feeling still largely remains preserved here as far as i'm concerned.

^Actually, as much as that feeling is here, the only way I'd ever have the *perfect* feeling of the former AF is if the header were the old, heartwarming side of Neytiri's face.



I'll never forget it. Those first months... were pretty much like you just described, Fkeu'itan. Those first few months when I was completely taken by Avatar to the point that holidays like Christmas were somehow bland if Avatar wasn't involved.

*Sigh* Yeah, exactly... Those first heady weeks and months were truly something to be remembered.

Hopefully though, they will help blossom into something altogether more memorable and amazing.

He's a guy trying to make a living, and at this point, probably regrets buying the site. If you want somebody to be angry at, get angry at the old admins who dropped the site for a quick buck.
