    Afraid not, no. It was in the range of 2008-2011, but beyond that I'm not sure. It was simply an early, rather large thread I posted in that I then went back and edited as a signature overlap dump. Are old threads purged progressively now, or did the facelift just leave some behind?

    I'm honestly not 100% sure but I can't see any reason they would be. I'd normally suggest going through your posts but as you have a ton I'm not sure how effective that would be.

    Ditto here, been that way for a while. The admin doge (@MLyons) is all over it.

    Yh we're aware of the issues and have been trying to get a fix out all week. We fixed what was causing it early on in the week but another more serious issue has popped up today so it may take a little longer to fix but we are on it.
    TY. I was asleep so I only just saw these messages. Yes Dev doge is on the case aswell as the rest of the team. We know what the issue is from a high level we are just working on how to fix the issue.

    Same, one of the reasons I don't visit as much these days.

    Could we get away from this vaginal “like” social media nonsense garbage and get back to REP? I'd like the option to be able to add to a members reputation, rather than "like" a post like some school girl on Facebook or something.

    It would be much appreciated.

    It behaves in pretty much the exact same way as rep did just without the silly numbers.

    I did wonder what you were talking about then, before I realised that you're quoting someone I'm ignoring :).

    FWIW rep was useless anyway, it really didn't mean anything. Having the points system was just an invitation to game/spam the system.

    I appreciate the response MLyons but disagree. Rep means something else, it's a sign that someone was either helpful or knowledgeable. Likes don't carry that impression at all, it's superficial “social” media garbage which we all know is very trendy these days, like this heart this heart that etc. It carries no value.

    Anyway.

    Just wanted to bring this to your attention, perhaps it would be best to remove the “like” feature as well.

    It was polled when the new forum first went up and people didn't really care as the new system is technically an improvement in all ways... it just says like instead of rep.

    How about a theme that lets you set it back to the old classic blue colours for us old folk?

    If you can get me a screenshot or preferably multiple It's something I might be able to work on over my lunch breaks and at home.
