Welcome to the new GailBo/YABS 2.1 - sk716 - 09-27-2014

It's been a long perilous journey, but finally we have arrived in our new permanent home.

For posters new to the YABS/GailBo community, we're not normal, but there are a lot of good folks here.  The moderating team is a team, Corrina and I have been modding Gail's boards for several years now, and we're cool as long as you follow our only rule:  Don't be a dick.

We used to have this really long list of rules that constantly had to be updated because rules lawyers would insist that it wasn't against the rules.  So now we have one rule.  Is it a little arbitrary?  It could be.  But we try to be fair and only ban when we agree that a banning is needed.

We have a community here, many of us have been wandering the internet together for years.  We have meet ups at conventions, we are a really big dysfunctional family complete with the cool drunk uncle who slips you a beer.  But we are an inclusive community.  Ignorance will be educated, but hate will not be tolerated. 

So come on in, grab a tasty beverage, and join in on the discussions.

If you're new (or using a new handle) introduce yourself here and I promise nobody will bite.

you say that only because you never saw the version we Beta Tested.

Hi all!
I'm Dungeonmaster Jim

I'm a New England guy and like my local sports teams.
I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons since 1980.
Classic rock: Led Zeppelin, Cream and The Beatles are my favorite bands/music.

Eek!  Are you sure you want to allow animated/graphical signatures?  So flashy-overloadey!!!   Big Grin

I bet we can poke around in the stylesheet and change that.

that would be awesome. . to help differentiate between posts.

(and no. . I don't just like it because you said "poke")

Why not just turn off sigs?


RE: Welcome to the new GailBo/YABS 2.1 - JBK405 - 09-30-2014

Hello-ello!

I can't help but notice that you pick the one block of days when I'm out of contact to release the new board. Now I'm forever stuck behind the lot of you when newcomers enter and travel in the Way Back Machine.

I won't forget this!

Good news!  After a great deal of mucking about in the templates and CSS, you can absolutely see the breaks between the posts.

I apologize if anyone thought they were having a stroke while I went through a series of color changes in rapid succession.

Animated GIF abuse!

Maybe we need a special thread dedicated to them. You know... contain them by celebrating them! (although yes, I do have the signatures turned off now)
