Nice layout CD...looks really good. :D

One thing...mabye I'm just missing it,but in General Chat..I see the "child boards{sports etc...}but where is the actual ..."general chat" area?

Cheers!
TC

It's just simply the General Chat link - the child boards are listed at the top - while the actual general chat area is still intact below

I found it....DUH...if I had only just scolled down. LOL!

Thanks CD!

Just an FYI ... I keep getting this flashing message in my status bar ........ looks like it ties in to an autorefresh (possibly?) anyway it says waiting for www.trailerparkboys.org and then done, but it's doing it like every second.

Looks like the countdown timer is causing the refreshing - weird since this wasn't happening on the old forums.. I'll have to look into it a bit more - maybe use a different script.

C-D - thanks for all the work on the site!  This THE BEST place I hang out on the net and trust me - I hang out in quite a few lol ;).  Next time I'm in Thunder Bay - should be a couple of weeks or so - I'll PM ya and let ya know I'm coming as I feel the need to buy you a few  :beermug: for all your hard work :)

That said, I have noticed one thing I don't know if anyone has brought up as, in all honesty, I am too lazy to read through this whole thread  :oops:.  My posts in threads used to be highlighted and they no longer are.  No biggie, just wanted to add it to the list in case no one else mentioned it.  Thanks again !!!!!!

The host had some downtime - I got an email about it, but obviously couldn't post anything heh.

These guys have a really good reputation though, so I'm confident it wont be something that will be a future problem.

I think the new look is cool, but I have noticed a couple of things missing.
1. Our locations under our avatars
2. Our personal text.

Any chance we can get these back? I felt that they were a part of our personalities and it's a shame to see them lost.
