It's been quite a while since the site has had any major updates. I've been working for over a year now on a full rewrite of the site, and now it's finally almost ready for launch.

This new version has already received a lot of testing so hopefully there will be few if any bugs left, but just to be safe I'm putting up a public beta test of it before launch.

You can check out the new version here: http://rc.fanart-central.net/

It's not a choice. This is just the test before it gets launched and replaces this one.

Feels pretty old school. But if there is a chance, could we still keep this version for mainsite and forum?

New version forums are the same. But no the old main site must go for compatibility reasons.

The forums really do need to get upgraded to phpBB3 someday, but that's . . . complicated.

I agree. It's very old school.

I feel "old-school" is more mature/easier on the eyes and artwork. Black and gray brings out artwork much better than light blue, in my opinion.

Denis, when you say the "old main site must go for compatibility reasons," we still have a "Site Theme" option to choose the Zellers version again, correct? If not, that is a shame(it could be easier on the eyes for some people)...

At the moment there is only one theme for the new site. If enough people want it, I may make a second theme based on the Zellers one (Zellers header and color scheme, but most of the rest the same)
