    - Theme tweaks
    - New e-mail system!

    I have moved over to a new e-mail system that should help keep srk2.com e-mails from being marked as spam. There should be no more problems receiving verification e-mails now. Required a tiny monthly fee, but definitely worth it to make sure e-mails work!

    1/22/18:
    - Vanilla forum version change
    - Voting system removed
    - Reactions and ranks implemented

    Ranks and reactions should both work now. It was really hard getting this shit to work...

    More minor theme fixes.

    One thing I have heard people complain about is how Vanilla forum saves their drafts in the comment window, and they have to keep deleting it every time. This is NOT a bug. Vanilla forum actually has a 'drafts' section where you can manage all your saved drafts.

    Click the pencil at any time to manage your drafts!

    No more shitty mobile themes!

    The new mobile theme is fully featured and can do everything that the full size site does. Should be easy to use -- let me know if you find any bugs or have any problems!

    Big top menus:

    Avatars, sigs, images, reactions...everything works on mobile:

    Stage selector working just fine:

    Seems like some people were viewing cached, old versions of the site. This should be fixed now. Everyone should be getting the latest version the next time they visit.

    So we're having e-mail problems again...

    Working to get it sorted as soon as possible. In the meantime we're back to the old e-mail method. I'll be approving all new sign-ups manually for now.

    I hate e-mail.

    :cry:

    Moved to a new host. E-mail system should work properly again.

    Reaction counts on posts were reset as a result of the server move, but everything else should have transitioned over seamlessly.

    Pretty big code update today, but if I've done my job properly you guys shouldn't really notice a difference.

    Lots of tweaks to how themes handle different font sizes. It should be much easier for me to scale/change all the fonts on the site at once now. This is important for creating more advanced themes/tweaking the mobile layout.

    As always, report any bugs you guys find!
