It's very white and bright, and fairly work safe.
Please let us know what you think, and if we can make any adjustments to it.
Members Update - April 2015
Just a quick update from 28dayslater.co.uk...
We have recently added several new subforums to the site...
Noteworthy Reports: A selection of some of the best reports on 28DL.
Urban Exploring Videos: A new forum for posting exploring videos, either your own or anything you find on YouTube, Vimeo etc.
Private Forums: We've reintroduced Private Forums, there are four for starters and they're doing well. We're happy to make any number of these for any exploring related activity. Take a look and if you want one setting up, just ask.
As always 28DL is free to use for everyone. The ads pay for premium hosting, and we get a little money from various links, donations and subscriptions.
Recently we've spent a lot of money (and time) on the new software, some add-ons and a few developer bills, and we hope you enjoy the new look and functionality.
You can donate here. All donations are massively appreciated, and 100% of it goes towards the running of the site. As a little bonus, donators don't get to see any of the site adverts.
We're currently working on a matching 'Light' theme, this should be rolled out within a week or so.
We're looking for a handful of volunteers to help with various projects, please message an admin if you want to help out.
As always, thanks for your continued support and interest, particularly during this transitional time.
Here's some numbers;
The forum has had nearly 193,000,000 page views since it started.
We've had nearly 1.1 million posts and 95,000 threads created in that time.
If you joined today, you would be about the 85,000th member.
You can't see all that of course, people come and go, threads get archived and replies deleted. Some lesser forums are disproportionately large because they never clean anything up. That'll come in handy when people want to research the earliest known use of 'nice pics mate' in an urban exploring website I suppose. PS If you want our VB archiving plugin just ask, it would be nice to have a level playing field.
We've changed style 4 times, hosting 3 times, software twice and upgraded more times than we can count.
Right now, this minute, there are people browsing threads from every point in our history. This traffic comes from within the forum itself, links from other websites, and search engines. Despite the constant struggle with 'Facebook Exploring' and the informal rivalry with other websites, traffic is constant, and in real terms we're busier than we have ever been at any point in our history.
So that's what we've done and where we are at. 28DL is built on the users and their content. The admins, moderators and members have spent untold time getting everything where it is today. Now, as a community, we can do more because we've got a great website that's developed over the years. We're constantly looking for ways to improve, within the constraints of the software of course.
Spare a thought for the people that went before you, your peers right now, those that will start this pastime in the future, and the countless other people that will be grateful for the information and pictures that we have as a group. Regardless of whether you are a new member, an old hand or a lurker, it's easy to contribute and give something back to the community;
Post a report
Reply to a thread
Help somebody out
Post some locations into the database
Make a banner ad or two
Donations of any size are always accepted with gratitude.... this software doesn't buy itself and we're not on some decrepit cheap server.
If you've ever been inspired by a report, visited a location you found on here, gained some knowledge, or just enjoyed using the website, have a think about it. That wouldn't have happened without somebody else's action from the list above.
So that's our little update, thanks for reading it.
Finally... Be safe and don't take unnecessary risks.
