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.

IMO, Mr. Derek Smart is a hypocrite: Only someone who is either (a) lying (b) ashamed of their products (c) just plain ashamed, would hestitate to give out some simple and straight forward information. - Derek Smart, Ph.D.
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.

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,
