The forum will be CLOSED for a short period tomorrow, January 26 starting at 6:00am EST to perform system upgrades. This should last for a couple of hours and should only affect Mark since he's the only one online that early in the morning.

The upgrade is complete. You will notice you now have a "Like" button and a "Tweet" button at the bottom of each topic.
Feel free to report any bugs here.

Regulars, one thing that didn't port over were the woofers that indicate when there are new posts. Before we put them back up I thought I'd ask if anyone is A) so much happier without them B) misses them terribly or C) has a better idea for indicating whether there are unread posts in a forum (and if so please don't hold back!)

it's fine like this, with the yellow pages.
the important thing is to have a clear indication that there are new posts.

I always look for the little red numbers of unread messages.

Voted much happier without them. I still get the yellow pages indicating new posts but I don't have to start at those darn blinking woofers!

One nice thing, I was finally able to change the background back to dark. I hated the white but wasn't able to change it back till now..NICE!
