    Mods/Admins!! please read

    Instead of disabling images in the sigs why not just limit each persons sig to one per thread. And allow people to disable them if they want.

    You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)

    This should have been posted in the Article/Site Feeback forum.

    The Administration of HWC will be making a change to new BB software soon (very soon I hope). We may see more/different features enabled then. Until then, we're probably stuck with what we've got, and we're lucky just to have two page threads that don't crap out.

    And just like outside looking in said, this has to go into the Article/Site Feeback Forums.

    Your question will best be answered there.

    Even once the hosting crew sorts out the hellish migration problems we're having with VBulletin, we'll continue to disable images in sigs because otherwise people would take 48K of users' bandwidth to transmit 124 bytes of information. We don't do avatars, either -- HwC is lean, mean, tech info supreme.

    Best,
    Eric

    Pardon my frankness windows_wizard18, but pictures in signatures are tacky.

    I'd like to know as well. Does anyone know what kind of time frame we're talking here?

    It's Housen who's smacking heads (including his own in late nights) ... let me paraphrase his latest update from Sharky Extreme:

    The schedule was to implement VBulletin starting with the Sharky forums last week, but it turned out the import scripts to move over all the member accounts, post counts, and threads didn't work. Suspected culprit: the 0-byte files caused by the nuked or corrupted threads that we've all enjoyed repeatedly, especially when a topic gets busy (one reason, of course, we're making the change).

    So our hosting tech team is working with Jelsoft to fix the glitch; since we're in the U.S. and they're in the U.K., it's a mostly e-mail exchange so isn't as fast as we'd like. Stay tuned for more news as I get it ... don't suppose everyone would settle for just starting over with 0 members or post counts and no topics, right?

    Thanks for your patience,
    Eric

    blimey, i had no idea that the projected switch was going to be so soon. assuming the sharky's change goes smoothly what is the rough timing for these boards?

    are we talking weeks or months?
