[​IMG]INTRODUCING A NEW FORUM STYLE FOR 2017
It's been a little over 2 years since we first moved to XenForo and since then we've stuck to the same generic UI.X style, granted with some navy colors thrown in on occasion. I'm now happy to present a new theme bespoke to PartyZone that I've been working on which represents the server in full bright blue form!

These changes are the start of a network overhaul with new content that you'll see in the coming months, so if you're wanting to see fun, sparkly, maps and games stay tuned. We're also pushing to listen to you guys when it comes to changes so be sure to voice your ideas in the Suggestions section to help us make the network great, we wouldn't be here without you after all.

SOME NOTABLE CHANGES
- A redesigned navigation bar and header image that's more bright and cheerful than our last one!
- Secret konami code easter eggs scattered around the website, with more to be added.
- New fancy footer to gaze at when you get to the bottom of a post. Try hovering over the logo or text for transitions that are fresh out of the oven.
- The ability to change the color of your profile in the 'Preferences' section and also your header image! Taste the rainbow?
- More rounding in places, I've been informed we lost our squarepants.
- Various font weight changes for a nice mixture. I'm a fan of cookie mix.
- Home page changes so that we're less gray and gloom. There's more to come on that soon so keep your eyes and your bananas peeled.​
...AND a bunch of other awesome stuff in general that you'll have to check out yourself by browsing around!

Stay tuned for awesome new content to come in...

Today is PartyZone's third year anniversary of our public release, and we have a lot of exciting new stuff to show you! First off, we'd like to thank every single community member and staff member, because without them we wouldn't be where we are today. As a small thank you we are doing an anniversary sale for 35% OFF EVERYTHING at http://store.mcpz.net, which is valid now through April 11. More exciting than a sale though, we have new content that we're excited to reveal that will be getting released today and over the next coming weeks!

∙ Redesign
PartyZone has been out for three years and hasn't seen any logo changes. We are definitely not the same network we were when we released three years ago, so we are releasing an all new logo to help show that. You'll be able to find our new logo on the forums, our store, and all of our social media pages, as well as in game in the server list!
