    I know it hasn't been that long since the last template!!! :) There will be a massive change coming with the new template. I will list out the changes coming below:

    * Forum Header - The forum header (portion that starts at the very top and ends with the last 'New Post'. This will be changed over to a new 'Windows 8 Panels' look and feel.

    NOTE: This forum header can be sized to be full-size (depicted), half-size, or minimized completely (if you don't like it). It has a LOT of information on it, much like Windows 8 panels can have. It is meant to be an easy place to see all the information you are looking for in the forums.


    * Wider Forums - The forums will now be without a sidebar. This means that our forums will now be wider and easier to read.


    * Platinum Sponsors - The forums for Platinum Sponsors will now have higher visibility. The size of their 'Forum Boxes' are larger with more content.


    * Affiliate Programs - Affiliate Programs will now have a 'Casinos' button. The purpose of this button (currently) is to allow affiliates to PLAY on the AGD tag at a casino. This is a way to help AGD grow, but it is also a way that we can TRACK them to make sure that affiliate trackers are working appropriately.

    NOTE: There is a checkbox there that will allow us to track this. The idea is that you click on a casino logo (or banner if there is no logo available). You sign up at the casino and when you return to AGD, it will ask you to enter your casino id for verification. We will then track this within our system to be sure the affiliate trackers are working. Any oddities will be posted within the forums.



    There is a LOT more coming... But that is how the new forums will behave very soon! :) In fact, it may be as quickly as 24 hours.

    I'm a bit surprised with no comments :) It's quite different from the site today in the header and I expected at least a few to NOT like it! ha.

    We want the real thing!!!! you will get your props! I know cause I seen the prototype. Its wicked and I think a very worthy update, quite a bit more functionality, tools and most importantly information. Right now you're just teasing us!! :rolleyes:


    Bring it to life!!!!! It's sweet Andy.

    Ha! Very funny. Yes, definitely geared towards giving everyone more information. The subsequent versions of this will allow for a lot more information. The framework lends it towards that on purpose.

    and... thanks ;)

    I love the new template, I can't believe how good it looks. Its so colourful, attractive, professional, and well organised too :) As soon as you upgrade to this template, AGD will definitely be the best looking forum on the Internet. That's the best design so far in my opinion :)

    Strange is rather ambiguous :) Is that a good thing or a very bad thing?

    Well, that's not good :( I dont understand why the banner is at the top at all. What browser do you use, Safari? What version as well.

    I tried to clear the cache. No much help.

    On Safari all works fine, so the problem is in Chrome IMO.

    ok, thanks for that! I was a bit worried for a second. Surprised that the same version of Chrome on Mac doesn't produce the same results as the one on Windows (Of course I have version 17.0.963.56 M. M = Makes it work?

    I'm seeing the same thing as Viktar, almost identical to his screenshot, using FF 10.0.2 on Windows 7.

    EDIT: Ok I tried a few things and found something strange. First I tried clearing the cache (no change), tried using IE (looks good), went back to FF, logged out of my account, closed FF and cleared the cache again (looks good), logged in and it's borked again...

    EDIT#2: Fixed it by going in to the settings and changing the Forum Skin option to "Use Forum Default", it was set to "Affiliateguarddog style" by default from before.
