It was a major announcement, and a thing that both frequent and occasional viewers of the site would be asking.
What happened to CRZ? What happened to the columns? What's going to happen to Wienerville?
All questions that people are rightfully going to think, and all questions that were summed up quickly by a simple "mandatory" message. I much prefer it, rather than having to constantly point people to the message at the top of the page.
I should have listened to spf2119 about HHH because he is the smartest Wiener around.
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (2-5) - It's time to sweep! 11-5 baby! (Okay, maybe not.) Badgers (6-3) - Well, we won one. Thanks for playing poorly Michigan State! Buffy 7.5 earns a 9 out of 10 because Anya is really damn cool this season. The flashbacks were funny (another musical, Joss?). The continuity from past seasons was tremendous, and just about everything else clicked for me. Plus! Barely any Dawn!
It was like an RNN special announcement news bulliten, and who can be against that? Only jerks.
I have to admit, though, that it's driving me nuts trying to figure out if the new user name color for the contributor tag is white or some kind of pale blue. I'm weird like that. I have the normal (I think, I don't remember changing it) color scheme and the dial-up mode (not a speed issue, it just makes things so much more bearable, I recommend everyone try it) if that makes a difference.
Edit - as soon as I hit enter on that, they all turned blue. That's crazy. Good crazy.
Originally posted by Guru ZimI went ahead and removed this color. I meant to get to this last night, but I didn't. Sorry - it was kind of confusing how it was set up - this should be more what everyone is used to.
Everyone still gets to keep their title though - I haven't pulled that out (yet).
If you pull the titles out, would you tell us what the rest of the titles are? Just curious.
These commercials are superfine because they pay for the production costs of putting CHRIS MOTHERFUCKING BENOIT on my GODDAMN TV SCREEN! I will GO GREYHOUND! I am thinking OUTSIDE THE BUN! – Dean Rasmussen 8/1/2002 Smackdown Workrate Report
Wait a minute, you mean that once I come up with a few more useless things to say and move up to "balking" that I shall be stuck there for all time?! Perhaps I should retire so I can remain "stalking" which is far cooler to be forever more. (shut up before the smart comment you're thinking about comes out!)
I couldn't help but notice the posting date of the new Welcome message:
Welcome... -- Posted by Guru Zim on 23.1.02 2003
Apparantly Guru isn't light years ahead of us, after all - he's just ONE year ahead of us. Still, that ain't so bad.
