A very Merry Christmas to one and all!

November 25th, 2008
Yesterday I have updated the Forum Software from 1.1.6 to 1.1.7. Some security issues have been solved with this upgrade. No Major updates on the forum itself have been made.

September 28th, 2008
Today I have updated the forum-software to version 1.1.6 of SMF. TP Software will be updated as soon as it is available. Enjoy!

September 2nd, 2008
Due to heavily back problems I'm not very mobile to get upstairs at the server room to update. As soon as my back is a bit more painless, I'll start updating again. Sorry....

July 25th, 2008
The site-logo section has been changed. I have inserted a rotate of all available logo's created by you guys. Unfortunate .png is not supported but I'm working on this. This way you can see how a logo looks on the site. Press Refresh or F5 to see another logo. Order is random. Enjoy!

Search page has been disabled. It didn't work as expected. I will see if I can change this to a working one, sorry.

Some items in the left menu have been disabled for Guests. These options are visible to all registered users on this website.

I did some cleaning up on the forums and underlying code. Should be running a bit smoother now.

July 23rd, 2008
I have added a temporary search page to the site. It uses the Google engine. As soon as I have found a better replacement, I will redo the search page. Until then the temporary search page can be found here. Enjoy!

July 16th, 2008
I'm currently updating the 'Download Goodies' section. All links will change and will be moved to the new download-manager. In this way the actual downloads can be counted as well as the page views per file. To download you need to register, just like some boards on the forum. The Complete Musicbox will be adapted as well and will certainly be moved to the same section as all other downloads, tho I'm not sure if you should be registered as well to gain access to The Complete Music Box. Let me know what you think via forum@lum-chan.com

July 15th, 2008
Added a new menu-item: 'Quick gallery Upload' allows you, from almost any page, to upload your images to the Gallery.
I'm now using Gallery Lite but I'm considering an upgrade to the Pro version. The galleries are growing rather fast with lots of images of our beloved Lum.

July 12th, 2008
The Dark Green Theme has been selected as the Default Theme. Others are selectable as well from the menu as well as in your own profile. You can click on the Profile button in the menu bar and choose the option "Look and Layout Preferences".

These are the Theme's available:

Theme's Babylon and Classic already have been deleted and aren't available anymore.

July 11th, 2008
Made some new additions/options available to the forum. For more and detailed info I can refer you to Forum News.

July 10th, 2008
Due to current website back-up actions, the website can react slowish from time to time. I'm making time to backup the complete MySQL database and a full backup of the complete website including current content. Duration is a few hours including downloading all the backups made. This in case of a crash of the servers (which do have a daily backup-scheme, but I don't trust backups not in my own possession), or foolish acts of myself while experimenting with codes and database tables :)

It's about time, the last backup dates from 2006-12-26. Stupid! Many things could have going wrong until today. Me slaps me!

July 9th, 2008
All the galleries have been updated and uploaded. Made some changes to the left menu and fixed some missing images. Need to do some modifications on the forum-software itself but need more info/time for this. Probably end of the week of next weeks start.

July 8th, 2008
Updated the Picture Galleries to reflect the changes of the new Theme. Only the Andalucia and the US TV Series need to be updated. This will be done before the end of the week.

Also, I have added new images to the Comics Gallery. This time Italian covers I had them laying around for quite some time. Still more to come, but first let me complete updating the last two (large) galleries on the site.

No extra scroll bars visible in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

July 7th, 2008
Due to the new layout (The Green Theme and the variations of it) the site needs a new logo. If you are creative and want to help me out, you can create a new logo with the dimensions 600px X 60px up to 800px X 80px.

The text 'The World of Urusei Yatsura's Lum" has to be in the logo.

You can email your creation to forum@lum-chan.com. I have created a new topic called The World of Urusei Yatsura's Lum Logo Contest and add your emailed logo's and added a Poll to it.
Of course you may submit more than just one logo :D

Added the [youtube] and [/youtube] tags to embed a YouTube move into your post, at special request of janus.
Just one little warning, loading too many embedded YouTube movies on one page may slowdown your browser, not our website, but don't make other visitors crazy with these YouTube movies. I have created a special boards for this.

Blog has been disabled and uninstalled from the website. Getting it to work as I wanted it to was taking too much time for any decent looking result and behaved odd from time to time. It didn't add anything to the website actually....

The Dark Green Theme has been selected as the Default Theme. Others are selectable as well from the menu as well as on your own profile. You click on the Profile button in the menu bar and choose the option "Look and Layout Preferences". The Babylon Theme doesn't support all the extra options and will be removed from the list as soon as possible.

The PayPal button on the menu has been replaced with a fine working modification. It's also added as a menu bar item called "Treasury". With this option you can Donate money to keep this website running (Hosting fee and such) and offers the possibility to be anonymous as well. Just click on "Treasury" and see for yourself.

Lot's of updates made to the website. Now you can choose from 3 different Themes from the menu item on the left. Blog is being activated but it's not done yet. Several missing images have been re-uploaded. They only showed up in IE as missing. This has been fixed.

The Last 15 Posts in the Left Bar works correctly on Firefox 2.x and 3.x but not correct on Internet Explorer 6.x and 7.0. Author has been notified.

I hope you will enjoy these new additions and modifications to the site!

July 5th, 2008
Fixed a lot of errors after updating all the used modifications. These were giving troubles and most of them have been fixed now. Thanks for all the input I received by PM and email. Should you still experience troubles and it's too difficult to explain, you can always send me an email at forum@lum-chan.com. Of course you can send questions, fan mail, Urusei Yatsura images and such too.

Official the correct URL to the website is http://www.lum-chan.com or you can go straight to the main page with following http://forum.lum-chan.com/?page=173. Old redirects such as http://lum-chan.bbox.org or http://lum.hastec.nl will not work anymore.

Unfortunate not every website with these old links respond to my emails, so if you encounter such a outdated link on any website, please inform the webmaster of that site as well as I did, maybe that helps a bit. If you do have a website with a link the The World of Urusei Yatsura's Lum, please check if you are using the correct URL. Thanks!

July 4th, 2008
Due to a mistake on my providers side the website did only show an index of the main directory. This has been fixed.

July 2nd, 2008
As far as I can see everything is working as it should be

Fully updated both the Forum and the Portal software to the latest versions.

April 5th, 2008
I just updated to TinyPortal 0.98. Some small bugs in the menu-bar are visible now. I'll try to correct this as soon as possible.

Problems found so far:

* 2x Forum in menu-bar -> FIXED
* 2x expand button at end of menu-bar -> FIXED
* Profile page isn't working now -> FIXED

If you find more 'errors', please let me know in this thread so I can repair these as soon as possible. Thanks!
Just added a shoutbox to the left-hand menu. I'll see how it's doing the upcoming days. If it get's miss-used, I'll abandon it right away.


March 31st, 2008
Due to some unknown reasons the site can be very slow to non-responsive when requesting a page or making a post. I'm working with Lycos to get this problem solved as soon as possible. Sorry!
