    Hello,

    I have made some small changes and would like to update everyone on those. Firstly, we have switched hosts recently to help with site up time. You shouldn't see any downtime unless it's scheduled by myself for an update or unless something unexpected happens such as an attack. If there is a DDoS attack, it shouldn't last long and we will find solutions moving forward. Overall I am happy with the new service although it is slightly slower than previous. I am working to maximize the speed on the site so it will improve with time.

    On to the updates. These are small but will improve user experience.

    Similar Threads -

    When making a new thread you will see similar titled threads. This will help to reduce duplicate threads on the forums. If you see someone had already made a thread with a similar title as yours, visit their thread to see if they are covering the same discussion as you want to have. If so post in their thread instead of posting a new one.

    Example - I type in NHL 17 trailer and I can see the similar threads.

    User Thread Info -


    Below the quick reply box on each thread you will now see both who is viewing & who has viewed this thread. This is interesting for everyone to see who viewed what.

    Extended Forum Statistics -

    On both the home & forums page you will now see 3 more forum stats:
    • New members today
    • New posts today
    • New threads today
    This is just interesting to view.

    That's all for now. Thanks for reading.

    Great job Domski. Now others won't argue who made the thread first (samee) and also who visited and who's on thread feature is interesting.

    Nice job Domski. I also believe the similar thread feature is a great addition and won't have people creating the same threads over and over again.

    nice updates dom i like the similar threads since like already said there won't be arguments about who made what first. and i like the viewing threads as well so at least for me i can see just how i got the number of views on a thread i made and not just from me continually clicking on the thread

    I like these updates, especially the similar threads feature. The site speed was slow at first, but now it's about the same as the old host.

    Like others, I do like the addition of the similar threads thing. That'll hopefully stop duplicate threads from being posted. I do think this host is a bit slower but not by much at all.
