I've finally gotten off my ass and completed the stuff required to perform the update. Though due to the size and effort this update has taken, I feel that if people want to benefit from it, they need to sign in. As such, the art and video archives have been locked down. Old links to them will no longer work. To enter them now, you must log in to the forum. Also, sub-forums are members only (such as Archived Topics)
I hope you can understand the need for this change. It takes a lot of effort to maintain this site, and I'd at least like to be able to see the activity of those who are enjoying it.
Keep an eye on the chat, as well. And if anyone can find me a better (less buggy) variant, I'll happily switch.
