NEW FEATURE (should have mentioned earlier)

As you may have already noticed, there is a new button in the post reply page.  If you haven't figured it out already, this is the "Toggle View" button.

What does that mean?  It means you can switch between BBCode View (what we've become accustomed to) and WYSIWYG View (What You See Is What You Get).

Something is wrong with the forum, causing errors for some, and slow loadtimes for others.

I'm going to shutdown the forum on Saturday 7/30 to do some maintenance.  Since we're not relocating to a new host, or completely redesigning the site again, I'm pretty sure everything will be back up & running before Sunday 7/31.

/fingers crossed


someone get the man some wood to knock on damn it

Zero had the same problem.  Toggle compatibility mode.

Slight change of plans.  I wasn't able to work on the site today, so I'll shut her down on Sunday.  I'm thinking it should only take a 1-2 hours, but every time I say that it takes a week.  So I'll just say it will be back when I'm done.   ;)

Maintenance is complete.

The only change you'll probably notice is the Chat is now located below News.

Uploaded avatars and post attachments had to be deleted.  You can reupload your avatar, or you can opt to use the "Specify avatar by URL" feature to use an image located on another site (ImageShack, TinyPic, etc.) to avoid having to reupload in the future.

If anyone experiences any site problems, post here as usual.

Something I was wanting to do, but didn't have time, was to integrate Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ buttons into the site.

Expect this sometime in the future.

A couple of things I just noticed Neato, IE 9's simply a pain in the ass. It's not showing the "smileys" in the 'post-reply' window or on any of the posted messages.  They look like broken images, the descriptions show up on 'mouse-over'- but not much else, this also applies to Compatibility Mode.

The chat's also not functioning in IE 9, but it works fine in Compatibility Mode, IE 9 takes to the web like:

People on the Xbox.com Forums are also complaining that IE9 isn't working there either.  Which is baffling since the whole point of the new Xbox.com was to improve its compatibility with future web tech.

I'm still running on XP, so IE9 is a problem I won't be having anytime soon.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but what are the differing colored coloured blocks next to peoples names?

I believe the top box has to do with our online/offline status and the other has to do with the ranking, "Hero", "Senior", etc...could be wrong, but that's what I gather.

Zero is correct.  Here's the list.

NEW FEATURE (If you haven't already noticed)

Official Links - 360° Fahrenheit Around the Web.

I've created profiles on various gaming and social sites to officially represent us.

What I'd like to do is use these new tools to notify everyone of Game Nights, contests, etc.  Does anyone know of an easy way interconnect these services so I can simply post one message (or possibly RSS feed), and it will automatically post on all sites?

I'm pretty clueless about social networking, so if anyone has any advice I welcome it.   :)
