There are currently no members online.

Board update coming soon!
#1
With the upcoming release of phpBB3 RC1, I will be converting the forum to that next version.

For a short discussion of the previous beta version of the forums, check <a href="http://www.ironsongtribe.com/viewtopic.php?t=2216&highlight=phpbb3">here</a>. Keep in mind it's in the Member's Meeting forum, plus the beta forum is no longer up.

A couple of downsides I foresee:
<li>No WoW theme (initially; I'm sure the author of the theme will make new ones for phpBB3)
<li>No itemstats plugin (the author of this mod has stated the most recent version was the last version they would put out - hopefully someone else will pick up with it or design a new one, or something similar)


(Check <a href="http://area51.phpbb.com/docs/features.html">here</a> for more information. A table of the features is below.)
<center><h3>Feature Highlights</h3></center>
<table width="95%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="4" border="0" align="center"><tr valign="top"><td width="50%"><h3 align="center">What is improved?</h3>
<p class="genmed">Features that are already available in 2.0.x but were improved and/or enhanced for Olympus. This list only highlights the most important improvements.</p>

</td>
<td width="50%">
<h3 align="center">What is new?</h3>
<p class="genmed">Features that did not exist in 2.0.x and were implemented for Olympus. This list is not complete, but only highlights the most important feature additions.</p>

I swear it happens every patch, they Buff the Admins and Nerf the User groups. I have a feeling that Phpbb is favoring the Admins. This makes me want to quit, or reroll an admin myself.
