    Hey Everybody,

    I'd start by saying that the maintenance has been finished succesfully.
    Unfortunately i messed up at the start, which delayed everything a lot.
    I accidentally uploaded a rar file of an older backup instead of backing up the website.
    This took about 45 min before i realized it.

    To make this better, I'd decided to already update some of the new features to the forum. They couldn't be fully tested, but i will try to keep a close look at the error logs.

    Updates
    You have added 3 features to the forum, whom 1 you may have noticed if.
    Here is the list of new features added to the forum.

    • Google's Username Avatar - Members who haven't uploaded a profile picture used to be granted a stock image. I wanted to make this more personalized and better looking instead of having a bunch of stock images and decided to implement Google's Unknown avatar system, using the first 3 letters of your username and a random color and attaching it to the user as his/her avatar.
      Example:
      upload_2017-5-25_16-3-15.png
    • Google's Profile Cover - People wanted to be able to personalize their profile page and as a first step I've added a profile cover, similar to google's system or youtube's old system.
      Making you able to upload an image, and showing it as a cover of your profile.
      Example:
      upload_2017-5-25_16-5-32.png
    • Last but not least: Newly registered Welcome - I've been working on this for a while and had some issue's before, but I've tested it as much as possible, and it seems to be solid enough to be added to the forum. Newly registered members will receive a personal Message where he/she will be welcomed and given some standard information. The forum also creates an Introduction topic where we can welcome to new user and where the new user is free to introduce himself.

    I hope you'll enjoy the new features on our forum.

    Kind Regards,
    House of Pain Management

    Extra information about the above features

    Google - Username Avatar
    It will only use your first 3 letters of your username when you do NOT have a profile picture.
    It does this automatically and you do not need to do anything in order to activate this feature.

    Due to a template issue, i'm unable to reposition the small icon on your top right. I decided to leave it like this, as it does not cause any issue's besides it being to big.

    Google - Profile Cover
    In order to upload your own Profile cover you'll need to go to your option menu and select "Upload Cover". You can then upload an image.

    BE AWARE MAXIMUM FILE SIZE IS 3MB !!!

    Once it's uploaded you can go to your profile and see the image.
    If you want to reposition, delete or upload a new one you can simply do that by clicking on the camera.

    Itotally agree with puni. No point in dislikes. If something comment and say what's not good. We are not like Facebook or wahtever we are simply having fun. Not like some of the topics simply don't read them.
