Yeah, it's making me a bit anxious at the moment as I was seeing a lot of SQL errors after I opened the forum back up to everyone. It took about 15 minutes for it to stabilize -- I believe the forum was building up caches for the most commonly viewed pages, plus since the pages are all new, your local browser needs to recache everything as well. This was causing a bit of stress on the server. I'll have to pay close attention to it tonight and look at the error logs in the morning. It does take a bit getting used to, but there are some nice improvements to be had.
Seeing that I don't have a facebook, your post was the first time I've ever "liked" anything. Boy was that exhilarating!
It will take some time to get used to, but I like it!

In theory, as they do now have a skin migration tool. Yeah, it seems that unless you spend a fair bit of money to get someone to create a custom skin for you, you're going to get a somewhat half-assed effort. Custom skins are always going to be a problem--anytime there's a major upgrade, you're probably going to have to redo most of the skin. I will have the "Splat" and "Deflection" skins back in a day or two, and I may buy some other nice skins that have been created for IP.Board 3.2 (was browsing some of them earlier today). Nice to have some choices.
Once you get the AtariAge skin looking the same for posts, post previews, signatures, profile pages, and blogs, I hope it will become easy for future updates to use your skin settings automatically without you needing to do a ton of work or needing to hire anyone (seemed like the last guy you hired gave up half way through).
I hope all of your colors, fonts, font sizes, link colors, bold links instead of underlined links, custom status above avatars instead of below, and so on will seamlessly move from one upgrade to the next.

Ahh haven't even tried it on the iPhone and iPad. It's a new Mobile Skin, one built into the forum. The previous one was a third-party skin that I paid for, but the author has not yet updated it for 3.2.
Looks great on the iPad!

I made a change that should make the Mobile skin come up by default on most mobile devices, and was able to see it on my iPhone and iPad.
The normal skin comes up on android as well. However, I found the button to change to mobile. The new mobile is much nicer than the old one IMHO. Thanks for all the hard work!

Yep, why click once to do things when three clicks are more fun? I love scrolling down to click on "topics I participated in" every time. That's much better than a simple "my content" link. Clicking once to get what you want is so Web 2.0! More clicking and more scrolling is what we need!
Other than that, I think you are running one of the best forum packages out there.

Yeah, mine too.
The animated avatars don't work any more.

Ahhh, that is probably because the user photos and avatars were "merged" so there is only one photo per user now. Previously you had an avatar that was shown in posts and a user photo that was shown on your profile page (and elsewhere). This has been changed so you only have one image that is shown consistently all over the forum for each user (which is a much needed change!) I'll have to investigate to see what's going on with the avatars, but looks like they are being resized and shown in posts, rather than using them in their native size (which would likely kill the animation).
The animated avatars don't work any more.
Good, glad you like it.
The mobile skin looks very slick on my IPAD.
Ahhhh, I will try to fix that right away, I think I know what's going on there.
One thing I noticed, is that the emoticons are missing in posts. I just see a question mark icon instead.
I'll take a look at that.
Would also be cool that you could jump back to the forum list when you are at the "bottom" of a thread.
Now you have to scroll all the way up.

Click on your name at the top right corner of the page and then "My Content":
Where's the "my posts" ?
