    I just want to let people know again.

    We were trying to decide when building the forum if we should keep keep the forum closed until everything was done or open even though everything we wanted to do was not done yet. We decided to let everyone in even though there are some things not finished yet.

    I just wanted to remind everyone this is still a work in progress.

    I appreciate having it up and running, even if imperfect. It sure beats Facebook! Well, I guess thats not too hard to do. Still nothing much is happening, that interests me, over at the MTO or CPF. Trust me...I was clicking refesh every 20 minutes or so, waiting for EDCF to come back online:)

    +1 although I'm also hanging a lot out on Facebook, I think my time on EDCF is still on the rise, because here happen more interesting and important things than on Fb.
    I was happy that I was on my trip to London, so I hadn't had the time to click that often on refresh during the day, but back from the city at my room, gosh, I was really hoping to find EDCF back online^^.

    Is there a way to go back to the old "Arialish" font instead of this Times New Roman? A small nitpick considering the other stuff, but boy is it annoying.

    Hey Willidigger, I feel your pain. I'm more of a sans serif font kinda guy on forums myself. The current default (TimesNewRoman?) does make things look a little busy. To be honest, you're probably the first to mention it. But I will run it up the flagpole with Jon. Assume can be changed. You no doubt know you can change font when you prep a post, but doesn't help with the rest of the world's posts. I'll let you know what the boss says.

    Yeah, I never thought about it until willydigger mentioned it, but I agree. Minor issue though.

    I just wanted to say that I think it looks great. Lots of good things that I like vs. the "old forum".

    Thanks for the hard work!

    Basically when you get your 15+ posts you are awarded 15 points and your name changes to "Loaded Pockets" and gives you access to BST.
