1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    a few days ago one of my friend's mother passed away, and seeing how it is so close to X-mas makes it even worse. My question is I know know I should send a sympathy card, but what about a cristmas card as well? I figure a Christmas card may cheer him up a little bit especially if I get the right one. Is this a bad idea to send him a X-mas card or should I just send the sympathy card and leave it at that?

    Having been in their position recently, I can say that a heartfelt Christmas card is a much better gesture. I am not a fan of sympathy cards.. I think you have the right idea with just the Christmas one.

    I'd send a Christmas card, and write a message conveying sympathy inside of course. I think that pre-fab sympathy (and thank-you) cards are a little tacky anyway - it's better to use blank cards and write your own message of thanks or sympathy.

    Thanks for the replies. I will send a X-mas card shortly.

    This is your friend's mother -- if you haven't been there, it can be a bad place. Send a letter. Regards, Huntsman

    A letter would work too but he could easily write a letter-long message in a card.
