    Hello all :)

    As you can see, we've now switched to a new forum software, and a new url https://amalgam.zone.

    The Screen Gems url will continue to work at least for a while.

    I am still working on things, but I didn't want to leave the board down any longer, so please forgive the mess.

    :)

    What a nice surprise. :)

    For moment there I thought something had gone seriously wrong when I opened the page...
    It was wrong logo, wrong url and everything. Got really confused there until I recognised the old topics and saw the upgrade post.

    Great work as always.

    This should be fun to get to learn! It's so weird to see everything like this since it's been the same since like 2005!

    I didn't want to leave the board closed any longer, but I still have a bunch of things to finish, so stand by

    I had to change a setting, so you all may need to clear cookies and log in again if you are experiencing any problems.

    FYI I've changed things to a straight redirect from screen-gems.net to amalgam.zone, to head off any cookie problems. So going to screen-gems.net will get you here, but you will be auto redirected to amalgam.zone rather than being able to browse the site on the old screen-gems.net url.

    Also, the layout of the Six forum should be as it was before now, so avatars and banners should link properly. If you are using screen-gems.net in your urls for your Six banners and avatars you need to change them to use the same path at amalgam.zone (Rampage I fixed yours already). Anyone who has avatars I made, I will resize them for you as soon as I have some time on my home computer.

    :)
