Hey everybody. Australia would certainly be a massive change, but it could be one of the best adventures of your life!

Oh hey.

That's great news, Jack! Congrats.

And several of my friends have gone to Australia long term for either work or travelling and none of them have regretted it. Some of them are still out there, and of those who came back they only did so because their visa (or money) ran out, lol.

Thanks guys! I'll try keep everyone updated and share as much here as possible!

I have a bunch of family in Australia, my Great-Uncle emigrated from Scotland when he was young and he married there and had kids and the lot, I know my grandparents here contemplated it for years but ended up not going through with it. Definitely could be life-changing!

GOODBYE GREEN.

Forums are getting a long overdue overhaul. Sorry if things are a little bumpy over the weekend. I have backed the place up so don't worry too much. Also, that was the first time forums were backed up since... like mid 2014. :mrgreen:

And this style is just temporary while I create the new one. It was actually really easy to install a pre-made design. If I'd known that, woulda down it years ago haha.

I first changed the forum design back to the original phpBB layout. Thought I'd better not leave it as that cos some people might think the forum had been restarted from scratch haha.

Any preference on the new colour? I was gonna start with red and see how that turned out.

Red would be a great colour! I'm happy with that :)

What if we had like a banner with sims from the sims 1, 2, 3 and 4 instead of the keyboard stuff ^^. It will definitely bring people to the forum with something like that because most of the big Sims sites have that kind of thing, not exactly the same, but seen as we have shows from all 4 sims games it could be worth a shot :)

Oh yeah, I'm planning a big header with images from SimTV shows.

This is just a temporary, basic layout until the new one is implemented. I could have gone back to the green one meanwhile but I think we've all seen enough of that for a lifetime haha.

Expect the fresh look on Sunday evening or Monday sometime!

Thanks.

I'm gonna work on. At the very least it will be updated to the same colour scheme.
