Those of you who are observant have probably noticed some changes on the index page. Our hosting has just come up for renewal and after some discussion amongst the staff we've now renewed it for another two years. Crystal has opted to take more of a back seat due to outside commitments and Zeth is now the root admin. Due to the much curtailed activity on the forums in recent times Zeth has consolidated and simplified the structure of the forums:-

The Symposium and the University have now switched names (since a university encompasses more than a symposium) and the old University (now the Symposium) has been brought into the new University as a subforum.

Site Submissions/Contests has been brought into The Category That Must Not be Named.

The old Literature and Writing forums have been merged and named The Dusty Pen.

The old entertainment, art and tech forums are now all within The Lab.

I think these are great changes and look forward to seeing what else Zeth has up his sleeve for the place. :crystal:

The consolidation is probably for the better.

I hope posting picks up soon.

Also I dropped our server data usage by ~50% and the boards are apparently running proportionately faster. So that's groovy.
