Nice! Finally back and going again, congrats! Just a tad bit too much white though, kinda blinding. Other than that, looking good.
Yeah, it needs to be darken in a few areas, I am working on it, one step at a time.

Thanks, nothing has been removed over a decade of SQL data here for everyone to enjoy!

Well it was either me, or let this site fall into the wrong hands, that psx-scene, psgroove, and now even dashhacks has fallen into.
Thankfully the powers were on my side, and we (me and maxconsole's loyal fans) are going to make this site rock the world again.

What ads, there is small divineo one at the top of the forums, and another at the bottom, and on the news portal just 5 ads in total, do you have screenshots you can supply of the problem, we here to work for the users!

oh and thanks for doing this on my birthday (50 today).
it might be an idea to introduce any new staff so we get some idea of their backgrounds, although, like many others, i recognise your name.
maybe you could send out an admin email to let people know the place is open again?
can we get some 3ds loving beyond just tacking it onto the title of the nds forum because it'll get lost in the nds section once flashcards are out or new firmwares for 3ds / ds flashcarts become available also gaming discussion, friend codes and other such stuff need a place of their own.
i know its a desert but the NGC section could also do to be retitled to either gamecube or if sticking to letters at least to GCN as that was its designation.
since there is lots of news for it maybe a vita section in preparation for its release too.
any chance those ads can be redirected to open in a new tab / window instead of dropping mc and replacing it, ok i know that not many people will click adverts but on the odd chance they do its better to not take them away from this site.
homepage keeps loosing the top line access to "my account" etc (running srware iron browser)
Super moderators missing from staff / forum leaders list
no visible number of replies on the front page (or who posted)
no "older news" or similar button at the footer to see previous news posts
Thanks for all the suggestions they are being worked on as you typed.
Yeah, maybe I should write up something about myself for those that have not been around in the 'scene' for a while.
As for staff it is basically me!
Some of the problems you mention have already been fixed, well at least "homepage keep loosing access".
Any screenshots you can supply regarding the ads problem you are having? -- we are here to please the users, well at least make a balance between operating costs and users daily input!

Well don't know why you calling it MaxConsole v1.0 -- I personally think the front page is very well designed, but we open to your suggestions on how to improve it, if you see any major problems, just PM me the details and I will look into the matter more and inform our web designer staff. -- As for XSS and the search box, we are in the progress of updating the VB core, so it will not be a problem shortly!
Man I have not logged into this site in about 4yrs! Once I saw you (garyopa) were taking it over I knew this would once again be home! Hated to see you leave PSX-Scene and hated to see what the site turned into even more. Everything looks nice, keep it up!
logging in is an issue, on the homepage there is no login and no "hello, username" and no account / messages access, go into the forum and even if you are logged in it says you aren't, it only shows you as logged in and only tells you if you have a pm once you open a forum thread which is two levels too deep, the login / hello and account access / messaging etc needs to be at the top of every page starting with the homepage.
