Over the past few days, a few major changes have been made to WJC, hopefully for the better.
The most visible change has been to a new version of our forum software, Simple Machines - to 2.0.4 from our old end-of-life'ed 1.3 version. As part of that, we had to get rid of Tiny Portal, which has ceased development. We are now using Simple Portal, which is what renders the different objects on the front page. Some of these are different from what you're used to, but I believe I've replicated all of the old functionality.
Behind the scenes, the server hardware itself has been completely replaced with faster, more resilient hardware. While we haven't had many issues in the past, bigger is better in this case and I hope that you see the difference in page load times.
If you have any suggestions on how to make the site better, please reach out to me, MCA, CeeDub, or Woodsy, or reply to this this thread.
