    Sometime soon (most likely Sunday?), NeoSmart will be down for a while as we perform some long-delayed updates.

    PHP, MySQL, the Wiki, the forums, & the bug tracker all need some updates; and I may take advantage of the downtime to push out a custom version of the Image Gallery to handle the ever-increasing traffic (the gallery is the slowest part of the site, ATM).

    Just so we're all on the same page here :)

    Well, some of the nifty new features here on the forums:
    * Tags for posts. You can now tag posts with terms that come to mind.
    * Improved user profiles. For instance, yours: The NeoSmart Forums - View Profile: Ex_Brit

    Thanks CG. I usually delete visitior messages once they are read but to be able to delete them totally, rather than only a soft delete, would be nice.

    Sure. I don't think there's any problem with giving the user total control over their pages.
