I dunno about this new fangled echatio. I liked the stupidly outdated old version.

Change eh?

i think it will be interesting to see how this format enhances or detracts from flame warring

I am not keen on emoticons - they should be turned off.

I like the thread format on the old echatio, though will probably read posts by some people I normally don't with this lay out.

the inevitable rolling Tune ID thread will be miserable. meh.

Registering user names in the early land rush could be fun. I wonder how much Mot would pay for his name...

I want to click all three. No, i don't like change in general. Yes, i prefer the new board, and "Shut it Teamy"... well, just because i like saying that.

I was deleting about that many as well, so God knows how many the board was getting hit with.

I like the change. I vote for a change of background too. The bold faces have put in a heroic performance but I think it's time they retired. Julian Cope and Andre the Giant need a break.

The spam was getting out of control, and the (final) DDK encounters made it that registering was the only way forward.

NAGAIUTB. It's going to take months to register all of those optimo departments...

Seconded on the emoticon front.

You have no idea how often I say "Shut it Teamy" in a day.
I NEVER listen though. Sad

I am glad its been changed, it will take a wee bit of getting used to but hopefully people will be a bit more sensible with their posts now! I dont mind the emoticons Very Happy Very Happy See! Or the colours!

we'll take a vote on the background. i vote for the faces to stay.

i think all the depts. are going to have to be amalgamated into one new catch all dept.

Keep the faces. Definitely.

There should probably be a separate 'Tune I.D.' sticky at the top that or another section.

I'm actually digging the new format a lot.

I'm particularly looking forward to sending abusive P.M.s to Canadian Graham.

Change is OK. It'll be good to be spam free though.

Now, does anyone know where I can get hold of some Viagra?

I like the change, mainly cos the other board decided I was banned. No idea why. Stir assured me it was not anyone's doing. It was a horrible old board, really. I am not really big on emoticons, and as these do not have the Mingoticon (TM) that I use on MSN, I don't think I'll use 'em....

or?
