    Both.

    1) Provide sexual services.
    2) Video evidence.
    3) Blackmail.

    That solid sounding enterprise makes me wonder why this site has ever had money issues.

    And we've got another very generous donation in -- $200 from DarkFool. We're now at $648 out of ~$800 needed! Not much more to go! :)

    The good news is also that the style is nearly finished, so we should be installing it here shortly.

    You folks are doing a great job of getting thing back on their feet and dressed in the proper attire for the House. It is greatly appreciated.

    On a side note: It figures it would take the total collapse and restoration of the House to get me back in the door.

    Vorak's doubled his original donation, so we're another $100 closer to the goal - now at $748 out of ~$800 needed. Almost there!

    Great to see we have the costs covered but I'd like all of our members to consider chipping in a dollar or two in the coming months.

    It doesn't have to be a big donation but just consider that if we already have a little money in the pot we don't have to raise $800 all at once next time something comes up.

    I know this isn't an option for everyone but just remember that every contribution helps out.

    Once we have a donations system with ad-free access in place it'll be more attractive to donate I expect. Though as I said, any donations made now will be processed for ad-free access too once we add it.

    In other news, you can complain about the new style now.

    Looking good! The ribbons below staff members' names need to be fixed, at a glance. Bolding the text might be enough. Also links in sigs are same colour as text, which needs fixing too. Links in text are white vs. grey text which is not very visible either so I'd change the colour of those too.

    Well, to begin*, I'm pretty sure the forum icons are either colour inversed or just wrong. [Yes, definitely inversed. Also no topic icons?]

    Also quotes are black and not darker maroon like they were, and the navigation menu is not over two lines.

    All in all it's looking pretty sweet.

    * Constructive bug reporting.

    Edits:
    Also the edit text window is maroon, while it probably should be black. And the error message heading should probably be maroon and not bright red.

    And the line between posts and signatures should probably not be black (used to be same as text colour), since it makes it hard to tell what's what on black posts.

    When pressing buttons they turn bright white, while they should stay maroon.

    Some users appear with black text on black background in the who's online list.

    The sign up now area on the front page is bright red. If anything it should be maroon.

    The House of Lords logo needs to link to the forum front page.

    More edits:
    This is how it's always been. I don't think another colour would be suitable, but perhaps underlining.

    WOO! I can finally return to the forum!

    Looking good!

    EDIT: WHen I press home in the forum section I get redireccted to the "sorry but we are down" site. Should probably be changed.

    The top links are just placeholders for now, they'll be fixed.

    Also, Jungle Japes' thrown in another $80, so we're at $880 raised now!

    I'm certainly digging the new look of this place! So clean and pristine. I'll try to get a small donation together, if the fates allow it. Student budget. You know how it is.

    I hear students can sell various bodily fluids for cash.
    Or even get paid to volunteer for questionable medical studies.
    We accept that kind of cash.
    In fact, we encourage it.

    I kind of wish Monkeypunch and some of the others were still around to see we steadfastly refuse to move on from the original theme.
