Cleaner and leaner. Frees up some bandwith server space. Friends w/pics isn't really needed anymore. Points are a waste of time. Now we can have elections. Get rid of this President for Life...lol No more point whoring.
Produce more articles and less useless redundant pictures. I am all for it.
I put a pic with my post and topics so I can judge the number of viewers and the interest in the subject.
What do you all think. Do we need PMs?
These are just thoughts that I am throwing out. I don't know if any of this will or has happened. But, I like it.

haven't explored the whole thing yet, but it's certainly easier to read.

Hey Schuyler

How have you been? You seem unusually quiet lately. Hope all is well...

I think we do need PM's to discuss things which aren't public info. I actually lost a lot of email addresses of past members and other important info when the PM's were disabled. Points... I don't care, never have, but shouldn't we do away with rank if there are no points? As far as saving server space, just restrict the amount of content that each account is allowed to upload. This will stop people from uploading useless junk.

Yeah rank also. We can always add it back in if sight lags. Good ideas.

Granddad's funeral was yesterday. Nice day, military honors. Tahoma National Cemetery. My father is there, too. I had never seen his place. Just trying to get the family through it all. Some are takin it better than others. I researched the Colonel's medals. Turns out he won a Bronze Star!

My range is closed for refurbishment. It should be much better when it gets all done. It's in a semi-rural area and has to have extrordinary measures to prevent strays. It's actually pretty cool. they have placed large beams on the top in such a way that any slug has to pass through two beams to get out. Of course, they only allow ammo that can't do that.

I hope the Military Funeral Honors included a live bugler, instead of the dreadful fake digital horn.

I do think we need the PMs. It certainly is brighter.

a live bugler, a very old guy who did a perfect job. I was very impressed with the honor guard. They were solemn and professional. They shot off a three volly salute that like to sacred me to death. Even though I knew it was coming I jumped roght out of my chair!

When I go to the top right and rest the cursor on my avatar, the screen shifts to the right and there is a sudden black space on the left. It's tricky to get to the drop down so I can edit my profile, etc.

I normally use MSIE 7. I just tried with Firefox and it seemed to work, okay. Next I checked with Chrome. OK again. Must be an MSIE issue. I like MSIE because of the auto RSS feeds.
