    Nah it's not at all difficult. Making a theme is difficult, but downloading one and installing it is easy.

    PR.. for Profile of the forum? The appearance of the forums looks simple indeed yet friendly. A flashy one is another step to improvement.

    Sometimes my brother gets on my account... he does that because his halo ranking is really high and he hates playing with the higher ranking people, so he uses my much much lower account haha

    Yeah anyone can download gimp and then right click the installer and have their antivirus software scan it. Mac and Linux users shouldn't have to worry about viruses cause, well, they don't get them haha.

    Alright so, this should help.

    I'm admin now. Hooray!

    What should I do first? I can't do the theme, etc yet because I still need the ftp details from Gimper. He's working on it. ^-^

    I think there was a reason Gimper took the edit button away.... I don't remember why though.

    Let me see if I can find why and then I'll fix it. ^-^

    EDIT: Here's why:
    I'll go ahead and add it back in anyway and see how it goes. Mods let's keep a watchful eye out for spammers. If it gets out of hand I'll take it off.

    The Edit button should now be back up. Originally it was set to 15 minutes after you post. If we do end up getting out of control spam in old posts, I'm putting it back to 15.

    Enjoy your edit button.

    I guess that makes a little sense, but it's not like it'd be any more a pain to deal with than normal spam...?

    In my opinion, the edit button is a must. Why? What if a normal member wanted to make the sort of threads I do, nice long text tutorials, or tutorial lists, etc.? I edit most of mine on a regular basis with updates. It would be a pain to make the mods do it.

    Thanks though, I hope this works out!
