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.

    Isn't Time Person of the Year supposed to be the most influential person that year whether they had a positive or a negative influence? In which case Hitler was pretty hard done by.

    IMO the guy who set himself on fire should have been Person of the Year for sparking off riots in every Arab country, a civil war or two (for now) and new governments in several (for now).

    Adolf Hitler as the Time person of the year for 1938 doesn't sound weird at all. Not one person came close to as being as influential as he was, who turned a sad gimp of a state into one that made Europe trembled at its knees.

    he set himself on fire in 2010. would that still make him eligible for the 2011 recognition?

    He influenced 2011 more than anyone, do the rules say its who has the most influence on that year or who does the most influential thing within that year?
