Just want to mention that Morphius is kicking butt with the new front page and the wallpapers section. Seriously good stuff.

Mr. morphius is doing a fantastic job.

He deserves a big, fat raise.

Austinchief - Thanks! Glad to see that you are happy with it!

FAX - They already doubled my pay, which oddly hasn't improved my income one iota. LOL!

If someone can make the "Go to first unread post" buttons work, then I'll be friggin ecstatic!!

Only one niggling complaint. Every time I check my rep on "My Profile" I'm so used to it being at the bottom of the pulldown menu, that I keep ending up at the Wallpaper page.

That's all Morphius' fault. He'll get right on that.

"wait... that was kinda funny... gotta check my rep."

"I think I said something funny again... any rep?"

"Wow, that's gonna piss off someone, better check my rep..."

Also, if it's not too much trouble, can you create a "destroy all dipshittery" button?

That way, a user can eliminate all the absurd posts from his or her Planet experience with a single, convenient mouse click.

Thanks in advance.

Here is the reasoning on that . I put Home on top because that is normally one of first links on a page, Register next because any option below that point you are going to most likely need to be registered and the rest is alphabetical.

Not really easy to follow, but I'm sure your hands will learn it sooner or later :D

I'm thrilled to see the improvements.

Amazing what utilizing some of the talents on the board can do to improve the place.


While you're watching AC....It would be my preference to not have smilies looking at me while posting from the "at work" option......

I think it would also be nice to not have Avatars and sigs on unless someone is signed in.

BB is looking a lot better. Easier for n00b navigation I might add.

Ummm. Cancel that.

On second thought, I realized that this would erase all my posts.

At Work mode should be the default, which should show up when you're not logged in. I'll have to look into that.

Morphius, We will never respect your authority until you have actually Banned someone. May I suggest Taco John before the season starts. Please , OH God, Please do it. I hate that little %&@*^.

By the way , great job on the front page!

I'm pacing myself, I have moved a thread, merged a couple threads and that is about it so far. I have been doing more on the feature upgrades.

Screw that. I think he should ban Gochiefs, if for only a day. It's like a Mods rite of passage.

The features upgrade before FB season needs that done now..

But the concurrent load issues on server will only cause problems later.

the VBull upgrade and MySQL to V5.0 still on the radar screen...

Trust me, I would love to do it, and am going to do what I can, but it isn't my expertise so it will take longer.

Kudos on the upgrades, but I have to say I ain't real fond of the new prompter for things like changing size, color, bolding, etc.

Um, I didn't touch that, and not even sure what you are talking about.

Until today, whenever I clicked on the features just above the reply box (bold, italics, underline, color, size, etc) it would just place the code in the reply box.

Today, when I click on them a prompt window (or whatever it's called) like the one for inserting an image comes up.

I think you might have accidently switched from plain mode instead of enhanced mode, check out the selection right above the input box.

Looks like a simple case of PEBKAC, and has nothing to do with me :P

That wouldn't help much, sadly. My ISP will not let me host anything. Of course it would be damn fast for me then, hehe. But then we run into the FAX issue, and there wouldn't be damn thing worth reading on it.

I didn't know there were any issues with FAX.

I thought he was one of our more respected and clever posters.

No, no, silly milkman. If I was the only one posting I would have nothing but crap to read, kind of like FAX was talking about himself earlier in the thread.

Yes, FAX is one of the more entertaining poster, he has been cracking me up lately.

If you see the 5 arrowhead's right below the drop downs, the second one from the right is the logout button.

Bringing on Morphius doesn't mean we're gonna start working on the dbase and vBulletin upgrade. That's still somethign we have very little control over.

Sort of... Morphius is looking into upgrading the BETA site and getting it to LOOK and FEEL like we want it... once that is done, I will finish the often started and never finished DB split and upgrade. If the BETA site gets to a point that everyone is comfortable with it and ready to move over... then it will take me one weekend to take the planet offline and finish.
