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.

    Well, it would appear that no one saw my haiku. What a waste of time.

    use three lines not one

    you clearly know how they work

    rhymes are for children


    words now forgotten

    thumbs up was administered

    are you happy now

    :)

    I don't really know,
    To me, rhyming clearly shows
    I do more than count.

    Poetry in the west
    (That which is considered best)
    possesses meter.

    Structure of the rhyme
    the dactyl and the iamb
    determine merit.
