Any new changes made will be posted here. Please note: Most changes will now be made off-site and brought in as an official update to avoid any issues working on a live site.


Conversion Changes

Only a limited amount of data was brought in with the upgrade, and some are not compatible with this forum. Please see below:

  1. BB Code - Any that exist within your signatures and PMs may not work. There's BBCode support that we're in the process of testing out, but it won't be as complex as what we had before.
  2. Post counts were initially transferred but have been automatically recounted by the software. There's no way for us to get it back at this point other than to do the transfer all over again.

Notice: Downtime tonight 

We're going to be down tonight to run some background setup that should make the forum even more stable once all members and guests are in. It shouldn't take too long (half hour or less), but please be advised that you will not be able to view the forum during this time.

Absolute 1.1 :gaycat5:


1.1 is our initial update before we add new members. Here’s what’s new:


Main changes

  1. Reduced spacing between elements for a less spaced out look + cleaned up some issues that added empty space to the side of forums and blogs

  2. Font has been changed to Arial throughout. We're going to experiment with some other options later on. If you liked the new font we introduced (Rubik) at launch, be sure to let us know.

  3. Adjusted the layout of member group titles on mobile

  4. When a reported post is handled by a moderator, it will now say "Resolved"

  5. New Dashboard (now in Beta)

  6. Mobile ads no longer break the page on mobile

  7. ATRL+ (Beta)

  8. 6 new themes (you can access them at the bottom of the page)


Minor changes

  1. Changed formatting of announcements
  2. Current page number is now indicated by a different color
  3. Adjustments made to Quote formatting
  4. Reduced the brightness of Absolute
  5. Fixed issue with some members not being able to see hovercards, thread previews.


Issues for future updates

These are by no means all the remaining issues to fix, but they’re mainly in regards to this update, any new issues that we’ve discovered and what we couldn’t get around to just yet.


  1. Logo still glitched/jumpy on some browsers

  2. Ads not loading all the time - This will stand out on mobile and randomly on desktop for the rest of the week. You’ll notice a large space between the header and the rest of content. We’re not happy about it, but at the moment, it’s out of our control. We're working with our ad providers to get it fixed.

  3. “Edited by” displays the wrong author

  4. Multiple posts issue

  5. Status updates/Wall getting deleted (We've applied a possible fix, but we need to wait another 24hrs before we can confirm it)

  6. Editor buttons on dark themes needs work

  7. ATRL-o-Matic Birthdays will appear in a future update

  8. CKEditor additions coming tomorrow
  9. Colors on new themes will be tweaked overtime for better contrast


Note on pasted content:

You’ll notice on dark themes that some topics have white backgrounds on dark text. This happens because the CKEditor takes the background from whatever content you’ve posted. You can clear the background with the text background tool.


ATRL Dashboard is now in Beta

We’re working on adding even more info and functionality to the dashboard. This new version is just a first step to a front page that benefits both new and existing users.


ATRL+ is now in Beta

During this beta period your active subscriptions will not expire. So if you had 3 days left when we started transferring to the new forum, you will have those 3 days to use after the beta. Members who had early access will be part of this beta as well.
