    I just spent an hour deleting about 700 pm's. I really had no reason for keeping them...just too lazy to delete them when I read.

    I'll try to do better maybe everyone should clean their pm's out?

    I had no idea there was an advanced editor. You mean all this time I typed out the code when I coulda just pressed a button?
    Oh well, it helps me brush up on my rusty VB skills.

    Not a single reply?

    Sorry, peji, I missed that the first time.

    We allow roughly 30k per avatar. This is necessary because some people use animated GIFs.

    We're fairly generous with the size and filesize of avatars here, and it's one thing I'd hate to mess with after-the-fact. It would involve too many people having to change their avs, unfortunately.

    I changed my settings to 100 per page as well. I'm willing to do anything so I don't get "page not found" after posting something. And sorry, that's not whining as much as it sounds like it is.

    And I'd be willing to not have an avatar and signature until things are running better.

    The latest word from the host is that we can likely expect the additional memory on Monday, and that downtime when they do the upgrade will be 10 minutes or so.

    Since weekends are historically slower for us, I may remove the registration requirement for the holiday weekend, and see what happens come Monday.

    I've been on the 100 posts per page for awhile now, and I have to say, I don't understand why I did 25 per page for so long!

    Try it, y'all, it's sooo much better!
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.
