MyBB now powers Makestation
#1
Welcome back! As you may have noticed, the community looks quite different. We've just completed a conversion to MyBB and are running on our very own, custom designed theme. The new makestation also features the beta version of our very own advanced profiles, and we have many great new features as a part of the conversion.

All posts, users, and everything else was seamlessly converted, and there were no issues. Unlike the conversion to SM4, users do not have to deal with annoying password resets. Everything went very smoothly, so I don't expect any hiccups as a part of the conversion.

Let us know what you think!

I'm planning to work on the theme a bit over time and refine it. My main goal was to get it converted to MyBB as quickly as possible, and I plan on doing a community update pretty soon to tweak things a bit.

Simlink will also be able to tell you all about the old peach theme that I was originally going for... glad we didn't go that route. Tongue

That peach was pukey. The little strip above where the dates is the colour that was everywhere. Tongue
Also I need to get you the new logo. Tongue

Alright, that is a bug that has now been fixed. I was a little lazy on one small step during the conversion and it caused it to go whacky. Should be fixed now. Tongue

Thanks for the positive feedback! I'm definitely loving the switch to MyBB so far, and besides a small glitch with the login system, it's been going quite well. Also, thanks for joining! It's an honor to see you here. Big Grin

My only suggestion would be when you have time to replace the buttons with something that matches the theme colours a little more. Perhaps grey/black.

I'm actually planning to convert to CSS buttons pretty soon. I actually did try black buttons, but they didn't look right, so I'm trying an alternative solution instead.

Thanks for the feedback!
