At the moment it does not immediately show older topics. To see older topics, you need to click the "Forum Option" button in the top left corner of the forum and click "Show All Invisible Topics." You should be able to log in just as you did in the old forum. If you had unusual characters in your username there might be a problem. It looks like you have to re-upload your avatar as well. We can still move back to the phpBB forum if you'd like, that's no trouble. The forum does not look so good for now but later it should be okay. If someone knows how to edit styles in Invision, I'd like to know. If you find any errors in using the forum, message me.

I didn't know exactly what the problem was, I was guessing the database was corrupted, something like that, so I thought the only option would be to re-create the database or change to a new forum (with a new database). I think this one might be okay if I can change the style. I was trying to get this forum to look similar to the previous one, which I believe is possible, but it is all very complex here, I read a lot about it and I couldn't work it out, it's annoying the hell out of me.

I like both, but at the moment I'm liking this a little more, change is good.. It's not too important, but is there any way to change avatar size limit to what it was before?

I've updated the avatars to 160x160, I'm not sure how big that is exactly though. The forum design isn't going well at all, it's too difficult. We might change back to phpBB soon unless someone gives some reasons not to. I could change the design there a little and it will be just like a new forum.

Invision Board is a little harder to customize, but it's a little more secure.

I think you just customize one of the themes like you did before with phpbb...

i am starting to like it too, but i really dont like the current look of it. it seems the "un-read messages" function is strange though, it shows new posts as "new" until i read them like 3-4 times. then they are finally marked as read.

Yeah it would be better if it was default. The old harmony text makes it look like you are driving a porsche with 12 inch tires and wal mart hubcaps. Not that the text didn't look cool as part of the overall website design in the another locale.
