    Well we have applied the first part of v5 for you all to enjoy.
    In Stage 1 we have redesigned the navbar as well as switching to jQuery for forum tab generation along with other features.

    EduGeek is looking to put together a user panel made up of you, our users. The goal of the panel is to try and ensure all the upcoming tweaks/changes to the site are actually to the benefit of all. The panel will also be asked questions about colour schemes and general thoughts on the future features to try and make sure we are heading down the correct path with EduGeek. Some of these ideas will go to public poll too if they are big issues but initially the panel will be able to give first thoughts.
    While on the panel you will also get early access to new features for comment as well as site layout changes.

    Do you need storage capacity or speed? The 12 x 1TB option (7.2k) is SATA, so capacity could be easily upgraded relatively inexpensively. The 10k option
