First - a request: don't PM me with site issues, please... email http://archive.ticats.ca - it's read-only so you can't post.
As for other requests:
- scrolling topics - no
We're not doing it. Why? Two reasons: 1. You wouldn't just see ticats posts, you'd see all the CFL forum posts. 2. We've had issues where someone gets the bright idea of putting up a nasty forum post late at night and it sits there over night for everyone to get offended until a mod can get to it in the morning.
- avatars - yes
- signatures - yes
We're fixing this - it was an oversight in the forum layout/design. You'll notice that I don't have my "grumpy sysadmin" tag yet... I feel your pain. I'm also copying over some of the avatars from the old site as well (and we'll make some up for the rest of the league eventually too, I'm sure...)
- original join date - no
Can't do it, sorry. It would mean trying to match up thousands of old users to their usernames on this site. There's no automated way to do this and I'm not making a career out of it. I'm sorry, it's not feasible.
- more wallpapers - yes
They're coming. We'll whip the graphics guys harder to speed up the process.
- topic review screen (wrong colours) - yes
Oversight, fixing... yada yada...
- Ticats specific topics (X&O) - yes
Why don't I just go add that now?
No carping about the things I've said "no" to. They're not negotiable and just can't happen. I have a three-year old and can out-last you on this argument as well. I'm taking a hard line on this and will delete posts from whiners (I can't do that with my three-year old though...).
Cool enough? Is there something we've missed? Post here.
Lots of love,
Your grumpy sysadmin - Ron
