Hi all,

Later today CDG will close for a while as the forum will be undergoing a major upgrade and redesign, user profiles will work in a new way after the upgrade but also expect changes in groups and the gallery section.

We hope everything goes according to plan, the upgrade will make the site even more secure and user-friendly.

Requests to join groups will be put on hold.

Expect the forum to be a white page/error message, this is normal durinig the upgrade process.

Some users may be able to log in be the board will be locked - you won't be able to use any of the site's functionalities.

Regards,

Cute Dead Guys forum staff

Hope it goes well !! I like the black background best, that's how I look at CDG. It is so much primer that way, hope the black background won't change!

It's rumoured that some people have taken the news of CDG's temporary closure better than others.

Holy flying fuck, Batman!......i feel like i just got zapped back to 1965 when U.S. television went from b/w to color!!!! Those NBC peacock feathers suddenly make sense now!!!! Think i'll go watch some of those Wild Wild West episodes again!!!! I think seeing sweaty Jimbo all tied up shirtless all the time - and i DO mean, ALL THE TIME - was what made me fucking GAY!!!!!! (and a cannibal- LOL)

Will be fun to explore the facelift (is there a market for facelifting corpses?)

deadboy
29-10-11, 02:11 PM
Really nice job, Meatpie. Before, I would have said that the site did not need a facelift, but you have really made it look better. I like the dead foot on the right side of the banner! Good work!

Glad you like deadboy. :cheerswine:

The reason behind all this change is that newer verions of the forum software were incompatible with the old style, same situation when we lost our red ogrish skin.

Lot's of new features have been added to the site and some bugs have been fixed.

Image titles in gallery are no longer cut off!

:super happy:

Back to the red & black version now, it's a lot faster.

Meat, I found that when I edit stuff in the posting window, sometimes the text gets repeated in different areas like it doesn't get refreshed properly. Have you or anyone else seen this quirk? :not sure:

Meatpie
29-10-11, 06:09 PM
No, I haven't seen this.

I love how the forum bleeds in the top right corner, and there is a good reason why - we are overflowing with dead young guys here!

CDG is busy as ever, despite the glitches and frequent templane changes people just keep posting away.

CDG users rawn on and remain unperturbed.

Hmmm! This seems to be working at the moment. Really like the changes, but mind you I was still much a newcomer so hadn't got bored with old style yet. Either way the site totally rocks! Love it to bits!

I have to sign in twice every time now, in order to login. Is this a bug?

Meatpie
01-11-11, 05:22 PM
No it's not a bug. What browser are you using?

mxboots888
02-11-11, 04:19 AM
Hey MP, it's happening to me as well (what toptuan said). I mentioned this in your other thread as well. I'm using IE9

Meatpie
02-11-11, 12:08 PM
Try Firefox.

PiercedChest
02-11-11, 12:27 PM
I have no problem logging in using Firefox7 or IE9.

Another thing: I see the old banner's back. On my screen, the right half of the banner is now just boring gray.
What happened to Platinum's new banner collage and lettering? I liked that a lot better in the new setting.

Meatpie
02-11-11, 12:33 PM
Thank you for your feedback PiercedChest, we received a lot pms from members about the redisgn most want the old logo.

We will post a poll as promised soon and let the community decide what logo to use.

Several other guys have also said they want to help with a new banner so let's give them a few more days. :forum with coffe:

What just happened to CDG now???
Quite a shocker but kinda like IT this way, too !!!

Our redesign has cost us hundreds of dollars, please be patient and respect the hard work of other people.

If you don't like the current design you can change it with a single click by going to the bottom of this very page.

I realize it's hard to get used to a new skin especially for users who spend hours on the board every day.

I think the new design is exquisite and I hope the community appreciates the effort we have put up to bring you the the latest in forum functionality & security.
