Great. Now all you need to do is to come up with a PG emote for Maggot-Faggot.

...so I thought "Okay, let me see if I can meet that request. I'll start by searching for 'maggot faggot'...

Surprisingly work-safe link. Okay, well, that's cute, but I don't think it really translates to a 16px icon. or comes of as particularly faggoty. What do I get if I try 'gay worm'?



Sure does.

Some of them are tricky, some of them you'd never stumble on. For example, Brian Blessed has a pretty great beard. [blessed].
Also, Josef Stalin, Salvador Dali and Wyatt Earp all had terrific mustaches. [stalin] [dali] [earp].

That's the end of the proper name ones (for now).

Images too big for posts are now scaled down via CSS (max-width:98%), so a huge image won't make a scrollbar in the post anymore.
(as it's a CSS change, cache cleaning may be necessary to see this)

ballp.it has been moved to the thefpl.us server (freeboners.info). Things seem pretty smooth, but most avatars are broken. I'm working on this.

update: Avatars are fixed except for Lemon's. Nerd details: Simple Machines stores the avatar images as files without extensions, so when I uploaded them via ftp they were automatically transferred in ASCII and turned into useless poop.

Mailservers went down when ballp.it got moved to the new server. Boots just finished tinkering with the mail server to get it to work, which I understand was not a pleasant experience.

But, the forum sends mail now, which is good. Doubly good because that issue was keeping new members from completing registration.

I see you've made some changes to the post-count icons. I fully support you giving Isfahan a special one again.

I only just realized that Isfahan's new post-count icons are dudes in helmets and not cute little piggies.  You two may have to brawl that one out.
