    Hello Everyone,

    This is what the last weeks has been about. We worked long and hard hours to get this done as soon as possible. Although we had some hiccups along the way, it is finally here and we would like to thank everyone for their patience.

    New Features:
    - A nicer looking theme
    - A relatively bug-free forum software (yes, there are some bugs to fix and let us know in this thread)
    - Improved forum index with news categorized by matches and showing what team the people have put their money on
    - Blogs are featured in a superior way

    Tagging System
    - Now, you can add tags to threads to "categorize" them under the specific match. We're going to be using Cricinfo's match number's to tag our threads.

    For example, India v England 1st Test - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/565806.html

    From the link you can tell that match # is 565806. So, you should tag the relevant thread with that match number.

    Don't start whining about submenus not working on forum's main page. It will be fixed soon.

    Yes, those things will come back. We just wanted to put out this template so you guys wouldn't have to deal with the ugly default format :p

    I like, I like. Just one thing, is it possible to have some indicator as to whether there are new posts related to the matches?

    be more specific please?

    Like a new icon or some sort next to the link?

    Yeah. Well, the index has it bolded and darker. I guess we could just do something like that.

    Thank you :) Appreciate it!

    The avatar problem has now been fixed (most likely). Please try uploading your avatars.

    Not sure if it's been working or not, but now you should receive a notification when someone adds reps for you.

    :notbad: and I also love the new smiley classification, much better what we had before.

    Also restore the Old Rep power and standings :ponting2:

    WOW! It is ****ing nice! Rager has very good organizational skills :thumbsup:

    Someone add me reps. I want to test reputation notification feature :ponting2:

    What is your guys' opinion on the logo?

    Me - love it. Elegance in simplicity.

    Rager - needs to be brighter. Doesn't stand out.
