1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Doesn't a property name just have to kind of evolve organically to have any cache? This endeavor smacks of the work of someone who'd make up his own nickname and use it to refer to himself in the third person.

    I though of Hardwood Manor (it has beautiful original hardwood floors....or something), but it was too late.

    Might I suggest Castle Greyskull?
    Though I'd watch out for potential legal trouble in the future if Mattel becomes hard up for cash.
