    Just wanted everyone to know that I am not sitting here doing nothing all day. I am working with a couple of programmers to bring you a brand new forum skin (the one Max introduced, but customized) along with a matching portal page!

    If you have any suggestions as to what you want to see on the new portal page, please let me know.

    Thank you,
    Donny

    yeah right
    something. Our last portal had like an update every month. That was whittled down to once a week when the only person who worked with SCII decided to have updates.

    I would definitely suggest getting someone to update the SCII info and sticky. No one has done anything since I left in August. It is kinda discouraging coming back to see nothing updated. Units that have been removed from the game months ago are still listed.

    There's a variety of images for that. Should be a different one every time.

    We're currently working on just the backend features right now. I also have someone working on a new background as well as a new header image (behind the search), which should be finished tomorrow in fact.

    Thank you,
    Donny

    Hmm new logo... that can definitely be done. However, I'd like to do this correctly this time. Any suggestions as to how you want it to look? Particular features? Examples of good logos?

    Thank you,
