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.

    Barely see this thread on the first page and no links in WAYWT made me think it died. Loving Alan's updates, great great format! Can't wait to see next week.

    Thank you for taking us into the holiday season, AlanC.

    Would you so kind as to nominate your successor?


    Thanks for the opportunity, Vox.

    I'd like to nominate DocHolliday as Digest Elf for the holidays. Don't take 'no' for an answer.
