News New OSNN theme / site launched

Not open for further replies.
For the last few days and at various times during the last few weeks, months and years I have been working on a new version of OSNN and today I think it has reached the stage where it is ready to replace the old system.

We have been using Virtuanews since around 2002, but the project is pretty much dead which could well have opened it up to security issues and such, but in a shallower and yet more important sense was leaving it behind in the direction the web is moving.

Today we switch to vBadvanced, a system that is more tightly integrated with vBulletin which we have been using on the forums for nearly 8 years, this allows us to more easily keep the style up to date, moderate new posts in a single area. There is so much more as well, but I am pretty hyped up at the moment as I was really looking forward to getting this online.

There is of course, still work to be done and I have a todo list that just seems to keep getting longer as I spot things that need work! The most obvious is the lack of logo! But yes, its coming!

Thanks to the team and the elite members for helping me test the site out and please enjoy the new OSNN as it continues to evolve, let me know what bugs you find and what you think of it!

EP,

I was a little taken aback by the new format of OSNN. But after looking around a few minutes I find that I like the new look, a lot. I'm not a web designer (I work in IT) but I have an idea of how much effort that you've put into the new site.

I think that you've done a superb job. Keep up the great work.

I like the colors, the red looks nice. Altho, an inverted color look would look cool and not so bright for those late night visits.
