    Gimper users,

    Me and David Wood since being made Admins have been working to try to update Gimper.net.
    The biggest change so far is the complete redo of the forums and categories.

    While moving all the topics from the old forums to the new, a few things had to happen:

    Old tutorials were not split up into signature or large art tutorials, because it would have taken years to sort through them, so they were all moved to 'other' tutorials. I do ask that you start posting tutorials in their respective category, though.

    There were a few other merges like that, but no big deal. The competition section was not moved over and has been deleted.

    In the way of promotions, we have a new leader of the Global Mods, Rod.
    Congratulations to him!

    We have made two new user groups:
    Junior Mod, and Retired Staff.

    Junior Mods serve as Global Mods in training, pretty much. They have a lot of the same power, though some things were taken away.
    Baum and Maffe811 have been promoted. Congrats!
    The retired staff group was made so old staff members will still be respected. They have a few powers still, such as posting stickies, access to the Staff forum, and a few other things.
    Regular members also should now have the ability to delete their posts.

    The maximum avatar size has been changed to 100x100px.

    Also now you may have two links in your signature. Only one may link off-site though, the other must be used only for linking to Gimper topics. (Team threads, competitions, etc...)

    Finally we have changed the way links worked, all links will now open in a new tab or window. (Sadly older posts are not effected by this, only new links)

    If you have any suggestions, or comments, please post in the appropriate forum.
    Thanks for your patience,
    Gimper.net Staff

    It's basically all done, just a few tweaks to be made.

    By the way, the Competition forum has been closed, what about the topics? PFX vs PE and such?

    Oh.
    Auria just had the title Global Mod. I'll move (her?) to retired staff.
    I'll look into the other guy.
