SkyLineBlue has been hacked to accomodate Mak2's banner and does not include the site name and description.
Site description (for those not using SkyLineBlue) has been changed to reflect the banner.

4/15/11: The version of PHP on the server has been updated from the ancient 4.4.9 to a more recent 5.2.17.
4/21/11: MODs installed:Disallow links before x posts
(users must have x posts before they are allowed to post links - useful for anti-spam)Special and Normal Rank Images
(Users can have special ranks alongside standard ranks)
6/05/11: Shoutbox added. If its presence on the index page still bothers you, change the mChat settings in the UCP to not display it. The shoutbox can always be found at http://www.atheistnetwork2.com/mchat.php
6/11/11: An abuse forum has been added. If you want to start namecalling or flaming someone, do it there. This is done so that people don't have an excuse not to keep discussions civil. Playful abuse is still allowed.
6/15/11: Two new BBcode tags have been added: [center] and [ytsmall]. [center] centers text, and [ytsmall] is exactly the same as the [youtube] tag, except the video is smaller (200x170px instead of 425x350px).
7/23/11: Newly registered users will now be added to the "Newly registered users" group by default. Users in this group are on moderation queue to prevent spam. Newly registered users can have an avatar and sig, but are forbidden from using the shoutbox or PMs (because those cannot be moderated until after the fact). A new user is automatically promoted to a normal user after a mod approves their first post.
7/25/11: A spoiler tag has been added. Note that it may not work that well on themes other than prosilver and subsilver2.
2/29/12: in an effort to reduce spambots, new sign-ups are required to solve a simple riddle or answer a science-type question in order to register.
3/08/12: user group "Banned" was created, and all previously banned users were moved to that group. To view the Banned group, Go to Members/Find a Member/Group: Banned and click Search.
