Site Redesign

We have recently redesigned this site with the hopes of making it easier to use and make submissions of your own content to share. We have also added several requested features such as integrated comments on articles with the Forum, streamline logging in with a variety of social media accounts, better mobile experience and many other features. We hope you find these useful.

As part of these changes we were forced to change much of the coding for this site. This has made the migration of some of the previously user submitted content impossible such as previous article comments, previous forum posts and previous article ratings.

Please let us know if you have any technical issues with this site. Specifying the issue along with your specific browser and version would be helpful for our team to address these issues quickly. 

We hope you enjoy the new look and feel!
