Upgrade to phpBB3

As you can tell, I've upgraded the board to phpBB3. Converting the style took me forever, and honestly, it's a work in progress. For me, it's good enough for now. Let me know if something really sucks. If you're a pro at phpBB3, there's a few things I want to do and couldn't figure out.

Aight -- one of these days I'll get off my ass and make a list of what didn't get done when I finally said, "fuck this!". :D

Yeah, it's not easy for the eye to distinguish between "blue gray" (actual crayon color that's close to the color used for unread stuff right now) and gray on a sky blue background, at least for small icons displayed in 900p or 1080p. Your name appears in red, so it'd be great if unread threads/boards appeared in red as well.

The friendlier search functionality is always appreciated though. I'm already glad that folks here don't ask the same questions over and over so this feature should be a further deterrent. I am surprised though that nobody ever comes asking for more info about any of the games listed on the website. The main reason I joined Japanese Gaming was because I had to see how interesting a guy who posted up thousands of games would be.

Red is already in use for "hot" topics. I will need to tweak the blue I assume.

I'm surprised you've stayed this long. O_O

There seems to be a defect with the PM system. After clicking send for a PM, the new page doesn't load and no PM gets sent.

PMs work again for me. Might've been a browser issue.

Those issues are usually between the chair and the keyboard.
