Not sure if this thread includes the forum, but can phpbb be updated to at least 3.1.x? They introduced a mobile responsive theme with 3.1 which would greatly help browsing the forum on the go. 3.2 was just released with a few other features, too.

I live in Canada, and would really prefer to order parts directly from Makergear when possible, but with how insane the shipping rates that the site offers, I pretty much avoid buying anything from makergear unless its absolutely not available any other way.

For example, I went to purchase an X-Y carriage ($25 for the part, and quite small/light), and the estimated shipping is $45????

I've placed orders directly through email and gotten much more reasonable shipping rates, so I know its possible. Is there any way to take another look at the shipping options available to customers outside the US, through the website?
