As you've noticed, if you're logging on and everything looks WEIRD AS HELL.... the forums have been changed a little bit.

Namely, I upgraded the forum code and, in the process, something or another got corrupted. The data's all there, but I had to completely reinstall the cosmetic stuff, and the Imoen theme I'd made for the forums back when it was PHP version whatever don't work with PHP version 3.0.8.

I'll be working on it later this week / this weekend to get the old theme back, so hopefully it shall be re-appearing in about a week.

Also, a change to the registration process

The "Why do you love Imoen" thing wasn't keeping the spambots away as much as it used to. While none of them made it through to the forums, I was receiving literally around 100 spam-registrations per day, and even with my little "Is this person human?" checkmark, that's a lot of registrations. So, I've changed it so that the forum registration page asks one of several random questions about Baldur's Gate and/or Imoen. If you answer it wrong, you don't get an account.

They're really simple questions, so hopefully no one has a problem with them.
