    Hey oh folks...

    Just an FYI, the entire coding of the board is due to be changed between now and a week from now, depending on how often your IP service updates its DNS cache (or whatever).

    Point being, there's going to be a bunch of cool stuff that you alls are going to be getting soon....

    These include, in a *very* non-comprehensive list:

    [ul]
    [li]Being able to preview your PMs, just like a post[/li]
    [li]Being able to preview your signature, sorta[/li]
    [li]An easier icon choice interface[/li]
    [li]Having the main board activity bar above all the boards[/li]
    [li]"Show recent replies" feature when posting[/li]
    [li]A few features that change for moderators and above[/li]
    [li]A few cosmetic changes scattered here and there[/li]
    [li]Some other stuff I haven't found yet[/li]
    [/ul]

    The board's thread for the change up is [link=http://boards.theforce.net/communications/b10006/29525111/p1/?37]here in Comms...[/link]

    We don't expect any downtime or technical errors, but like all new codes, you never know. Feel free to let me know if something happens in your viewing of the boards, or you can post your error in the above thread.

    Gratsie! This has been your Hammer Service Announcement. :)

    Previewing PMs? This could revolutionize the character sheet submission process!

    Welcome to the 21st century. It's a brand new world, maybe we'll start getting more options for icons, userpics and images, just like real people.

    Hasn't happened for me, yet. Luckily, I have no need to change my icon.

    Anybody else getting the weird glitch where it's showing that the "Episode IV AU game" thread hasn't been updated since it was made, but has two posts?

    I just noticed the New Hope discussion thread having two posts yet no name shown on last post. Weird. It's a glitch that has to b worked out in the new system.

    I agree. No more having to write it all out. Has anyone noticed the time of a PM and actual time is different. It shows a few minutes faster than it really is.

    Yes, all that is needed now is a Quick Reply system.

    I had a glitch where the PM Preview wouldn't work - I clicked the button, but nothing happened. [face_plain]

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Asking for it to Show Recent Replies, and then typing while waiting for it to come up (Which takes a bit unlike the previous system), causes what was typed to dissapear.

    A bit annoying, but I guess I'll just have to click and wait before typing in the future.:(

    it doesn't show if you have PM's in all parts of the forum. for instance on the entry level of the boards, it doesn't have a number next to your private messages link, even though i have 10 ATM. there are other parts of the boards that have had this issue, census for instance, EUC, YJCC some times.
