The new site has been designed from the ground-up using nothing but the best available resources to ensure we can expand  and provide new exciting services to all our community. Special focus has been given to the new menu system, that no longer requires lengthy scrolls to get to the desired article, and are also nicely populated with nifty icons representing each category.

Our new forum system now supports enhanced features such as 'Helpful answer' voting, plus more, that will ensure users helping the community are receiving the necessary recognition.
