Why is the set up of the forums changed from the old forums? I agree some sub sections should be merged because we don't have many members, but other than that I'd like this forum to be as similar to the old one as far as the set up goes. Couldn't care less about the theme.
I'm planning to be active on these forums and these forums only, other than SPQR's official forums, so this is something that's important to me and could also raise the popularity if it doesn't seem too complicated.
Thoughts?

Well we want to do a proper customization section, that can handle file uploading and voting and sorting and searching. That is the main reason Mods and Maps isnt up.

I'd like the background to change to biege or somesuch, rather then this bright headache-inducing whiteness.

The theme of the forum is fine, but seems to be a default theme, will you guys add a new theme or change it ? Or you want to keep it ?
Maybe you are working on it

Look at it like this. Build and Shoot is an alternative community, while the old forums were for a game. Since we are just an alternative community, we don't need the excessive amount of sections as a game would need.

Also, what you guys don't know is that there is a theme that is customized and will be used but it's still a WIP. I just provided the final version of the logo and should be up soon (I presume).

This sounds good.

PS: Why doesn´t this site has a favicon?

Still, this site should really have mapping, modding, media, Signature shops, and tech sections
The reason for separated Media and signature, is that signature shops usually spam the media section.

I've been asking for one, but I'm sure there are more important things that they need to focus on.

Yes, there are.

But I think it wouldn´t be too hard for them to create a few more sections we need to have.
