    Please list the bugs you find, or changes needed here.

    1. Who are or were the moderators on XLNation? - Completed
    --Waiting for confirmation that Monk is "Funky Monky"

    2. Turn off Moderation of Resources - Completed
    -- Will do that tonight when I get home

    3. Try Out the New Logo -- Completed
    -- Fixed the gradient filler on the Logo at the top of the page.
    4. Get Email functionality working -- Completed
    -- I will have to work with HW on that, its not mission critical but would be nice to have
    5. Get Enhanced Search Function working with XenFORO -- Completed
    -- Not critical at this point, I just need to configure the server but it will be nice once it is working. This becomes more important as things grow
    6. Check the Resource Categories. This may be a good time to add/edit/replace for the XLExchange -- Completed

    7. Do you want Facebook and Twitter Sign-In Integration? Yup users could login using their twitter and Facebook accounts.

    8. Add a chime sound to the ShoutBox -- Completed

    9. FAQ for the moderators of all the things they can do?

    10. Add a horizontal line break bbcode to the editor

    11. Get Search Friendly URLs Configured -- Completed

    12. Fix the problem with user registrations. For some reason after a user finishes the registration they get sent to a blank page. The registration actually worked but no one realizes it. -- Completed

    It's The Funky Monk and me at the moment
    Former: snick and Krise

    Currently 2 moderators are enough because of less spam and general activity

    The Resources approval should be removed

    Actually there is no Monk or Funky Monky registered yet. There is a Monty though. Is that him?

    Hehe, nope, Funky hasn't registered yet
    You might want to send a PM to him on XLN, since he's not in our current PM conversation
    His username is: The Funky Monk

    I just fixed the gradient filler for the logo on top of the website. I hope will be okay instead of a new logo

    Accomplished a few things:

    1. Moderators should now have permission to change the owner of a resource and a few other things regarding resources

    2. Here are the file size upload limitations. I actually fixed the server to allow larger attachments so the User Interface Mod can be hosted on the server.
    1. Max Size for an Image is 1600 x 1000 pixels
    2. Max File Size (patch, zip etc) is 15MB

    I think I have a vectorized version of the site logo somewhere in my HDD, I could make the same logo but without the blue halos around the letters, so it would look more sharp, but without changing the original design. Maybe expanding the city background picture a little bit more to fit better would be nice, since there is no login box on it anymore.

    Remember Alex's April fools gag he pulled on us this year? The top banner on the fake website he made up looked pretty good and would tie in well with the colour theme here.

    Here is the vectorized original logo/banner. The zip contains the logo in ai, svg, eps and png format so you can edit it if you want, like adding a different background. I would like to keep the original logo design, but I guess that's HW decision.

    Here is a sample of the vectorized banner.

    IcyHot, is it possible to not allow access to the site if you have a specific IP adress, because I got the IP adress of a troll. Monty and Pamascus can confirm he is a troll and we definitly don't want him on the site

    okay, that's awesome, now we have a weapon against trolls that prevents them making new accounts.

    minor detail, maybe add a note for noobs about how big their avatar image should be (next to where you add it)
    from what I see its 96px X 96px under 50KB.

    Edit: also is there anything you want us to test? test
