Hello everyone,

Many of you have probably seen posts or heard discussions from DNF about a potential merger. I am here to inform you that it will no longer be the case, and YGOrganization Forums will continue on its own path. As to what path to take, now that is the more interesting discussion to have.

As of now, I have assumed the role of Head Administrator of YGOrganization Forums, and will be working to improve this site and community so that it grows into a great source of discussion & information, as well as becoming an even greater community. Over the coming week, we will be adjusting, creating, and eliminating subforums in order to redesign the main architecture of the Forum, as well as slowly implement a couple of small visual changes. The first of which can be seen up at the top with our new Forum Banner, but more improvements will be on the way.

I would also like to thank many of you for responding to my recent announcement concerning an appearance poll. The results were pretty astounding. The majority of those who responded to the poll thought that the site needed some work visually. But for those who responded and had an active forum account, the opposite is much more true. We will not be pursuing giant visual changes to the forum, no large-scale theme changes, no color scheme changes, and no modernization from a purely visual standpoint. While considering a migration over to a different Forum Software such as IPBoard, we have also decided that it is unneeded, and the current forum is good for the community it intends to serve - you.

Please look forward to more announcements in the coming weeks as to my plans for the direction of this Forum and Community, and how we can work on that goal together.

Thank you for being part of a great community, and can't wait to serve you in my new role,
-Quincymccoy

How do I switch back to the old banner, or is that not an option?

not an option, obviously.

give it time, the new banner clashes hard wiht the current setup but they aren't done with the changes yet

The words/logo on the banner are a little hard to see against it's background.

The future will be interesting.

Hopefully some heads up before anything big or significant gets taken down. There are some posts here (like CaC) that I haven't made anywhere else, and would like warning to save them before they suddenly disappear. Other than that, FULL STEAM AHEAD!

Then Dread bursts in through your window and challenges you to a duel.

No, it's Dread. He'll burst in straight through the wall like the Kool-Aid man.

i mean, you can have multiple 'themes' on vBulletin.

to be perfectly frank, it looks like ass, and I want the old setup back/as an option
