If you run into any forum issues, please report them in this topic. Please keep in mind that there will be small changes/updates applied every now and then, for the next week or so, to the skin and board settings. However, all feedback will still be accepted and considered.
Also, we are aware that there are some display names that are showing odd characters. This may be from a minor database error. If you are unable to change your display name to show the correct characters, let us know.
With the new software, we aim to provide our members, the fans, a safe, secure and fun environment that makes browsing, posting and enjoying The Lakers Nation much easier and effective.
All questions, comments and suggestions in here, please. We would love to hear from you!
