It was that boring, huh? Sorry! I just thought I'd try and bring everyone up to speed with all the new stuff. My fingers love the sound of keystrokes sometimes, though!

I still miss the old board......this feels more closed-off somehow.

Sorry, Laura. If there's anything specific you're missing, let me know, and I'll see if I can't try to wrangle it in here somehow. Though, I should say first that there's not a whole lot of room for maneuverability with many things. But, note me if you'd like, and I'll see if there's anything to be done. Aside, of course, from bringing back the old aesthetic. :)

Well, we used to be able to click the pic at the top and go directly to Joe's Blog. Not so any more. (Unless I'm doing something wrong...)

Nah, not boring, just long winded!! LOL

It's cool, though, sometimes, I just like to hear myself type to, but I have long fingernails and they make a cool noise on the keys! :mrgreen:

Laura spits out pacifier to say:
Glad to know I'm not the only one missing the quick-link to Joe's Blog. I agree about the font, too.
It seems the traffic here has slowed considerably since the changes, am I wrong? That sucks.

janis, Google joehillfiction.com and that'll get you the Blog.

Heh, that's ok.

To get to the blog, just type in: joehillfiction.com -- it's as easy as that! Or, just go up to the address bar here, and remove the "informe" part, leaving joehillfiction.com and you'll be there quick!

The banner preferences here are a bit weird. I'll go in and try to make something else soon. But, when the change over happened, I wanted to get rid of the default banner as fast as I could.

I just checked a couple of days ago, and honestly -- the traffic is up, for whatever reason. There are more ghosts on the board than we've had in a long time. And, 'ghosts' are people viewing the content of the site without being logged in -- they're either members who aren't logged in, or drifters coming by to see stuff.

Hi Shane,

Is the PM system working? I sent you a PM a couple of weeks back in response to a question you had, but I haven't heard anything back. And I sent one to Joe, but it shows up as stuck in the Outbox rather moving into the Sent box.

I was able to send a PM to myself--as a test--but that's no fun. :?

Hmm. I don't remember seeing it, but let's try it again. I'll send you one just in case.

Thanks. I got your message today, and sent a reply, but I notice that m new reply went into the Outbox rather than Sent. Is that the way it's meant to work? (Can you read if it's in my Outbox?)
