Over the years, the BOOM! website code has fallen into a state of disrepair. the site looks good and runs ok, but much of the underlying code is outdated and needs to be brought current. In order to do this, I need to reload the site from scratch. I intend to make it look exactly like it does now because 12 years has shown what works best for us.

The site will be down while I do the work so please join our Steam Community Group where I will post news and status updates for the site while the work is done.

Take care,
Mav

The website has been reloaded successfully. I still plan to update the fonts to TF2 Fonts and I will also be making a slight change to the STEAM API login scripts.

I also want to allow players to add contents from the Steam account to their profiles using Steams API code, I'll just see how that goes.

Stay tuned for all that, but the site is running well now and everyone is free to use it again.

Take care,
Mav

That is just crazy. I am glad the reload went smooth. :) I also love that I'm a newbie here (lawl). I can troll and be undercover noob.

I don't know if this is related to the reload, but I've gotten a ton of 403 errors.

All at random times but has happened on my work computer, mobile device, and home computer.
