In the text there is a "forum" link, but it directs you to the old ProBoards forum--not here, which is where I presume you would like it to.

Thanks for pointing that out. I never noticed that.

Once we'll be redesigning the site for Season Three, there'll be some improvements anyway, like a more detailed about section, and perhaps the FAQ will actually really be updated at that point. ;)

I'll also say that we'll most likely be needing someone new to design the S3 look once the time comes, as I don't believe Sam will be having the time for it. But there'll be an official announcment if/when we're looking for someone to do that.

If you're referring to the two forum-skins for VBulletin I did, then yes.

I've been thinking about ideas for a new website for Horizon for quite a while since I did them, and I can say that - while I would keep the greens and blacks for the site - it would be slightly cleaner than the design I originally did... and would have a Flash-based menu with the Horizon Stargate for selecting pages.

The beauty of it is SGH is hosted on GateWorld, so the fact of it being a PHP site has always been possible, but just never explored in more detail. Although I don't know how to code in PHP completely, I can create the graphics for the site and I do know someone who has made some great sites in the language before, so maybe he can give me a hand in implementation.

Erm... I don't know, have to check that.

Anyway, for the skin I made for the forum, there is a special way you can get it to run inside a subforum without changing the main skin for the everything else. An example of this can be seen at the Planetside Syndicate Forums (http://comms.planetsidesyndicate.com); when you browse to the "Idealab" sections.

Then when you switch back to everything else on the GateWorld Forum, you see their skin as normal.

I know. I suggested that to Alex.
