Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the new, revamped homepage of the Cut Throats. Our site has been streamlined for maximum efficiency, and given a new look. This design is more reliable, adaptable and open-ended; I find it to be a lot sexier as well. A few new features:

Top Navigation - Our website can now meet the width and scaling demands of any screen size outside of the IMAX thanks to repeatable, massively-wide banners. I will put out the .PSD for the top banner if anyone would like to make some more. This design also allows us to fill the side modules with more content then ever before.

Integrated Forums - Now there is no need to change between entirely different designs when viewing the forums. The forums have been given a new blue theme, with other colors on the way. The old forum theme is selectable for those who will inevitably want it back.

Server Monitor - We have installed a Server Monitor on the left module of the site. This will allow us to check for active BFP games when visiting the site, and also doubles as a server stat tracker. Click on the Server module to your left for more information.

Scaling - The main content components of the website have been designed to scale to any monitor, so certain sections will never be too small, awkwardly spaced or unreadable. Also, USAF has done a very tight job on the site code, so load times should be dramatically reduced.

Still to come is a new downloads section, which will be very comprehensive to include tons of Pirates content. What do you guys think? Please post any ideas that we ought to implement.

Thanks USAF for the hard work!

Note from USAF: Thanks anonymousity for all the graphical work!

A big pat on the back need to go to both Casey and Sean on this. In the napping thread in the lounge, Casey mentioned that he stayed up until 5 AM. What he didnt mention was that he and Sean both stayed up that late working on this, and many other nights before it. A lot of hard work was put into this by these two guys, and I'm proud of them and hope everyone is as happy as I am to see a much needed change to this old house.

In a way, we're a whole new group of Cut Throats. in the past few months, we've come out of a dead spell and given new life to ourselves and the community. To me, this site represents the Cut Throats that fought the odds, came back from our slumber and regained a focus for kicking ass and having fun together. The site is amazing, Sean and Casey, Thank you!

I hope I'm the first to point out that the banner with the lady in it that Sean made so perfectly? her name is Spright.

The site looks good, guys. I'm glad those annoying "features" are gone, and the face lift makes everything seem more lively.

YARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

I'm usually not a big fan of change. This entire time I've been bitching to USAF to "not touch the forums" but they did a pretty good job. Might need a little contrast tweaking here and there but I am sure you will get used to it - it's pretty damn good overall. More themes coming is nice.

I know first hand what USAF and Anon went through to get this up. I haven't contributed to building the site per se but I've been around them these past several weeks as they worked fervently until the wee hours of the morning putting together all kinds of new stuff for us to enjoy. It's great and only getting better!

Hats off Smile
