    Things are a little messy right now but I thought I'd open up the board anyway. Over the next few week I'll be fixing things that have been messed up by the new software (smiles, signatures etc).

    If you notice anything weird please let me know.

    YAY! Tried a showpost on the big list (Jerry Alexander) and it looks like it worked fine!!! Thanks a LOT!


    It looks like the references which are NOT using showpost are no longer working. Examined it, there are 50 of them. That's a relief.

    Issue? Looks like the threads that were stickied no longer are. :eek: Or is that just me?

    ETA guess it's just me. :confused: One of my less brilliant posts I'm afraid. :p

    Looked a bit further into it.

    printthread also seems to work fine
    attachment works
    index also works
    member works

    find user not so much :(

    replacing find_user function for member function should do the trick, but I'll let Incredulicide who maintains the big list wiki be the judge.

    Wow. nice. I'm really glad ESMB has been reincarnated instead of dropping it's body. It has been very instrumental to my escaping the thrall of Hubnotism. Would I like others to have the wins I have experienced on ESMB? Hell yeah! F/N VGIs ;)

    Whoa, it's working! Looks great!

    However, I do have one issue that greatly concerns me. Although I have searched extensively on ESMB's new format, I have not been able to find that link where members can redeem their "frequent flyer miles" (i.e. user "credits" calculated from total number of posts made) for valuable prizes.

    I am sorry to complain, but someone has to stand up and fight for our rights! If I had ever even suspected that one day my 22,000 previous credits was going to lose its redemption value, I never would have made all those posts!

    Please give us back our reward program! I have had my eye on that DELUXE BARBECUE GRILL & BEER COOLER for the past 8 years and I am damn sure not letting this go! I am going to fight until this injustice has been made right!

    You are not going to get away with this! Trust me, there is going to be some serious rue-factor involved!

    ps: If anyone has the contact info for Ray Jeffrey, please PM me.

    As I sat in on one of the meetings as concerns the rewards program I can assure you there is nothing to worry about here. The rewards program is still in place and the Deluxe Barbecue Grill and Beer Cooler is certainly still part of it. I saw one myself in the storage closet ready for shipping.

    There was a slight change in the program rules however you may wish to take note of. To receive the Deluxe Barbecue Grill & Beer Cooler you must reach the level of 50,000 postings.

    Great news! You're almost half way there! ;)
