It's you. As I've told you before, and you're making me repeat: They're trying to get rid of you...
I really think it's the switch to a new site design...and servicing the servers...and the creaky old software. As you said, everyone there is running long hours to get stuff done. Look, the PM tallyer, the picture gallery (personal) etc., etc. all need a major overhaul and there are only x number of hands and y number of hours. And let's not forget, it does take $ to do it. Since the drive fell short, WC will come first and as Jafo replied in one of Brad's threads, the Forums will come after.
With any luck, my doddering old head seems to remember that the personal pages aren't part of the Forum. I don't know if they're part of WC proper because no one ever drew that Anatomy of WC which would help me understand (hey, I learned human anatomy once, right? Or was that cats?), so I could certainly be wrong.
I am so looking forward to the new WC... I truly hope our pages, badges, galleries, tallies...everything we always speak of will be next in line.
I can wait for all that stuff, because in all truth the world won't come to an end if it has to wait a little...will it?
Oh yeah...I don't care what everyone says, Thug....I like you.
