A Like system. Fosters community and easy to do.

At this point I'm looking at changes to the main page, the forums are going to be a whole other sticky wicket. But I'll comment on these suggestions.

Increase URL length limits.

Long URLs break the forum format, so the URL code is to fix that... just that people have a hard time working it.

Notify if a comment is added to a post you commented on. Keep the shit goin...

Already present.

Secondary, embed photo's/movies. Adds spice.

And porn, and more moderation issues. May be a tough bridge to cross.

Otherwise look and feel is good.

Other than that, how did you enjoy the show, Mrs. Lincoln?

Change nothing. It's great the way it is! Thumbsup

Drop down anything makes it difficult for mobile and tablet browsing.

How much worse can it be than the existing menu on mobiles with itty-bitty text links?

Is there a way to ignore users? Down-vote? Something? If not, it would be a huge improvement.

Click on a user's name and you will find the function to ignore them.

I had an iguana for many years and it was very friendly. It came when I called it and would climb up onto my shoulder. It would also lay on my while I sat on the couch. They can be very good pets when raised properly.

Here's a lizard that's very friendly.

I don't blame Buddy. He belongs to a young man who was just a little kid when they got him, and afraid to pick him up, so Buddy never got used to being handled. If he was, I'm not sure he'd have let me pick him up, but I doubt he would have been so determined to bite me.

Introversion surely knows the difference between an alpha and a beta, and should do their part to not cause people to start using them as synonyms.

Updated key to game development terms:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • There you go. And finally:

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

    Looks like the clean install is still kinda messy.
    I don't understand why is it so hard to put an option into the installation menu to do a clean install.

    Agreed. MS used to be friendly to this, just requiring you insert the disks for qualifying products to do a clean install of an upgrade. I found this changed with Windows 7, however, as I was told by MS tech support that getting it to actually do a clean install from an upgrade disk was not possible. I was finally able to find a registry hack to allow this anyway, but it made me feel like a pirate just doing a clean install of an upgrade for which I paid. Not cool.

    Some odd behavior was recently identified in our forums, as sending another user a private message turned out to reveal the recipient's email address.

    I'm pretty sure I reported that to you like a year or more ago... :|

    I'm sure you are right... I apologize.

    Thanks for the credit

    I am just mirroring what the site says. Or are you correcting the spacing and capitalization and getting the numbers wrong?

    I thought it was your site, which is why I skipped the credit (people usually don't send in random HW reviews from smaller sites).

    Most "fake meat" products AREN'T fat free, including veggie bacon. Doesn't stop them tasting like byproducts from cardboard manufacturing.

    And wow, a pizza oven? I generally cook my pizza at 425 in a boring old oven on a boring old sheet for something like 20-25 minutes, still gets a great texture in the dough if not the ideal slight charring.

    Pizza is like steak... it's best when cooked at high temperatures that are hard to achieve in the home kitchen.

    Story still applies. I don't think you should use it to reheat food in plastic containers either.

    Dammit Jim, he was a doctor, not a marine biologist!

    But was he a real marine biologist?

    "The sea was angry that day, my friends - like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly, the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, "Easy, big fella!" And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing, I could see directly into the eye of the great fish."

    Stabler was a great guy, his foundation raised a lot of money in Alabama for sick kids/RMH. Somewhat related, anyone remember this play? Still nuts all these years later.

    Not the way to honor Kenny. That would be this one.
