Well, I figured id give you guys as much notice as possible so that you can stay up later tonight and sleep in tomorrow while we do the upgrade.
also, Im not one to promote alcoholism but I know it helps some people get by in a time of need sooo.

Come by the RnR board. Yes, its an old fashioned layout, and no bashing is allowed, but you can talk about tennis or whatever for a few hours and you don't have to register. :)

I'll be asleep, no big deal for me.

:lol: Steve you have a great sense of humor :D I'm glad you have this posted all over MTF because there are posters that never come to this site at all :eek: I keep telling them they need to come to this area, but I don't know how much luck I have had in getting any posters to view this site :sad:

Steve, everything looks great! The new multi-quote thing and the new editing posts interface are both great. and I love the new moderating tools they will make things a lot easier :D

*Ljubica*
09-28-2006, 03:25 PM
Yes - thanks - all looks great and seems to be much quicker too. Only one question - where is our promised del Potro Forum? :sad:

It'll take a while to get used to, but I think I like it.

Can we please remove that hideous message that comes up when you rep someone though? :o

Deboogle!.
09-28-2006, 03:29 PM
ohhhh cool I didn't notice that the rep thing is now a java thing instead of a popup window. Excellent!

But yea that popup alert thing is sort of a pain :(

The changes are very nice. Please reconsider the pop-up that appears after giving someone a rep.

Is there a different place to change the MTF skins??

And I like the way the quick reply attaches to the bottom... there are a few other forums I visit that have the same thing.
