Much like peace in the Middle East, the staying power of the UV board has always been tenuous at best.

I dunno, but if the horridly slow load times don't improve, I'm gonna complain to the QA department.   :P

Anyone else suffering from the new board loading slowly or is it just me?  Its not a problem on my end, everything else loads just fine, its only here that's having issues...(anywhere from ~20 seconds to ~1 min 30 seconds so far)

Otherwise, I like it!
LISTER: Look, I don't want any toast, and he doesn't want any toast.  In fact, no one around here wants any toast. Not now, not ever. NO TOAST.
TOASTER: How 'bout a muffin?
LISTER: OR muffins!  OR muffins!  We don't LIKE muffins 'round here!  We want no muffins, no toast, no teacakes, no buns, baps, baguettes or bagels, no croissants, no crumpets, no pancakes, no potato cakes and no hot-cross buns and DEFINITELY no smegging flapjacks!
TOASTER: Aah, so you're a waffle man!

Haven't noticed any slowdown myself.

Though, I would like Chucara to enable my admin privileges one of these days.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Wouldn't be a bad idea.

And...we really need to get a skin for the forum that's not so bright.  You know, something dark.  Like my soul.

That's right, I'm a goth pirate.  Or not.

It lives.

Now can we give it a better skin and some fancy banners?

And I must third it. I used one of the darker ones on the old board.

I have noticed slowdowns on this board, but it has nothing to do with the board, but rather our host. (again)

Time to take care of QA!  *kicks BC in the Qs and As*  There, that should fix things.  :P
