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,

    Also, I'm looking for a bird. And a watch. Possibly at the same time. Any suggestions?

    Any mods mind if I bump down black magic spam with established threads? I'm up while you guys slumber and have a similar time zone with the fucker.

    Doesn't work, unfortunately. Does it have to do with Java Script? (I disabled that.)

    I do, actually. As I use the forum, spammers rarely intrude on my enjoyment. Your contentless bumps, however, have me clicking on threads for no reason.

    Let the mods do their work, and if you think they're taking too long, say so here.

    Right, because if there is actual content, the bump hides it as the last post...whereas the black magic stuff can just be scrolled through. Fair enough.

    Not much the mods can do about it while they sleep (and they have jobs and families), so I'm not going to complain about their reaction time.

    Huh, that's weird. Worked for me every time, both on Windows and Mac. Even alt+s works, apparently. And no, shouldn't have to do anything with JS. Do other shortcuts work? CTRL+R for reload, CTRL+W or F4 for close tab, etc.?

    MC isn't my domain, and the mods who cover it may have a different opinion, but I can tell you I'd be annoyed if you did that where I moderate. Useless bumps that don't add content aren't fundamentally different from spam, so going around bumping threads for the sole purpose of moving spam down the page really doesn't create a net benefit.

    Edit: Didn't see your last post before I made this one. Looks like you get what I'm saying.

    Back to IE9. Firefox sucks :)

    Please fix the go-to-the-right-post-and-not-to-the-top-of-the-page-issue, mods! It worked perfectly in IE before last Thursday. Please.

    I think your local Justice of the Peace can help you with that. You might have to fill out some forms, though and then request new identification, Driver's License, Social Security card, etc. Good luck and hope the new name works out.

    :eek:

    You need to send that to MS. They will mark this day in their calander and it will from now on be known as the glorious NOBD-day. Champagne will flow.

    Srsly, get used to FF (or even better, Chrome!) and you will experience true happiness.

    21 of the last 25 threads started in Business & Career are spam threads, along with 54 of the last 92 in General Chat. Sorry, it's been a struggle to keep up.
