I've added a feature that should really help those of you that are using a dial-up modem to access the message board.

In your profile screen (accessed via the Edit Profile Link at the top of the scren) you have a new option -- Graphics mode.

The Dial-up mode eliminates avatars, post headers, and signatures. This should decrease the load time for people that are not on broadband. The Regular setting keeps everything the way that it has been.

This is NOT an invitation to make your post headers and signatures take more time to load!!!!!!!! I'm already getting really tired of some of the larger graphical ones. Please think about toning down the size - I still think that BrewGuy has one of the best post layouts here, and it is one of the more minimalistic ones.

There is more in the works! Stay tuned...

Hey , what about a trivia section ? It would be a reason for having a " wiener of the day " , instead of the much debated random selection .

Just an idea .

BTW , the graphics mode is a great feature .
Thanks for that option .

Brothers Zim, what say we leave it as a message board, kind of like now.

Awww... I like my Einstein
I guess I will get over it Glad to see that the feature is wanted.

As usual, I'll take recommendations into consideration, but this is a message board, so the options will need to be based around that more or less.

And, I hate polls.
