lmao

So now even BTS posts are awarded points? Is there a new spreadsheet that has the point values laid out?

Since I've joined ATS this place has had about 10 face-lifts and a couple tummy-tucks....and it seemed perfectly fine to begin with...lol

SO - you rock!

If this is just the BETA, I'm excited. This is awesome to see such progress. It is much more than I thought it would be. I love to see the integration of points onto all boards.

Keep up the AWESOME WORK, SO!
I am so interested in the under-the-hood workings of this place. It intrigues me how much can be done.

I CANNOT WAIT for ATS 4.0 FINAL!

This is like the Windows Longhorn betas... oh wait... it's not... cuz this is actually a WORKING BETA and it comes with more features!!!


w00t.

Just wondering, if I happen to notice a minor bug on the new 4.0, should I post it here or send it thru the suggestion form?

*sigh*
Fragile Earth is still not available to me to edit into the Your Favorite Forums section on the MY ATS page.
Sad, but true.

The only bug I noticed is when viewing a thread logged off, and use the login boxes on the top right of any topic page,.... it will give me an error and not let me login. The login on the main forum works though.

(I did notice something else, I had made two fairly large and detailed posts the last 2 days,... and after previewing the post prior to submitting,... I may make some typo changes, and then go preview again to be sure,... at this point my IE6 on XPp, gives me the crappy warning that ..."they are sorry, internet explorer has experienced a problem and will be closed" crap.

I normally wouldnt care, but this happenned the last 2 days in a row, and after compiling some rather lengthy and detailed threads of posts I would be proud of, I gave up, until tomorrow maybe. Gotta build it from scratch again on notepad.
) But I havent ruled out the possiblity that it might be my box spazzing out. Except that it only happens here.)

It's not your box: it happened to me trying to post at BTS and P@ATS. Like you, I lost posts and like you I could also log in on the main page.

I have also lost posts using the little quote, url, etc buttons on the reply page.
