We've renovated the structure of the forums a little bit (okay a lot), the forum homepage will be a little bulkier now but it will fit in nicely with the new skin that's on the way sometime in the not so distant future (this is the reason for this change, to get you used to part of it beforehand).
It should only take a minute or two to get used to where everything is now. Take a look around, let me know if you run into any issues.
P.S. There's a new Fairy Tail forum now, check it out and get the ball rolling in there
