Post Welcome to the New Forums
Hello all,

Welcome to the new forums everyone! These boards can't help but offer us a much nicer platform to discuss C&C, TLG and other various and sundries. They don't look real pretty now, but we'll clean all that up in short order.

I have to take a moment and thank both Brian Kowalski and Mike Tremaine for all the hard work. Brian set the new boards up and Mike put in the insanely hard work of scrapping the previous boards and importing all the data. He also got it arranged in these new forums. So thank you gents! Beers on me whenever we meet up.

These boards are hosted on our http://www.trolllord.com site so the ads from the previous boards are thing of the past. We will run some banners, but they will be internal, directing you to things such as sale pages, trolls tusk and things of interest. So no more of that insanity.

We'll also take some time to gussy up the place. We'll get some TLG colors in here, some graphics and take away this blinding blue, toilet bowl blue as Peter would call it. Give us a few more days on this.

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy the emoticons that don't yell at you! haha

Steve

Any chance of going with the old Egyptian feeling from the original forums?

LOL Maybe. But I doubt it. Davis loved that theme.

The new green theme is MUCH better than the default one! And very trollish.

So I have to say, its actually a pleasure to come to these boards. A nice smooth color (green is my favorite color). We have no annoying banner adds. Its all very much under the Troll roof.

Looking at the boards of yesteryear, the really old ones that Serl posted, its strange to think how far we've come. Many of you know what I'm talking about. :o

Even more interesting to me is to look at the usernames that still linger from board to board... the Troll Corps.

The new boards look nice! The green really seems to play nicely with the logo.

I haven't been around in a while, but maybe I'll start posting again. I see some familiar names already. :)

Some early glitches for me but the new boards seem to be working well now.

Love the green, but still a bit uncertain about the orange. :-)

Love the new boards! Thrilled that I'm not having several video ads playing as I open multiple tabs. That was getting so annoying.

This is a great move that can only serve to improve people's perceptions of TLG! Hopefully, that brings more people into the fold and keeps C&C reaching new heights!

Alright Robert,

Your the man to ask this question to, what is the guy on the left playing. That's what I want to get Davis to play. haha

I can't get a very good look at them, but it looks like what would be called "bones" which others commonly call "spoons." It may also be what was sometimes known as a "shave and two bits" as it looks like he may have had a razor and the leather strap for it. If I could get a more clear view I could say with more certainty.

Well, regardless now, Davis is getting that "shave and two bits"; that's just too cool of a name NOT to get it. haha
