Re: Ideal changes for Season 28

I've never seen it in all my years of following TV. Yes, July, unlike November, February, and May, has limited new primetime programming, but I've followed a lot of articles about programming that does have new episodes in July, and not one mentions it being a sweeps month. July is a sweeps month, ...

Re: About This Board

Yes, I have it set at 15 posts per page (the default is 10); people can make suggestions in this regard. As for numbered posts, there is a phpBB "mod" that allows you to incorporate those similar to what we had on the official board, but I'm not quite ready to figure out how to incorporate these mod...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Rules

Can I suggest that all responses be put in using the spoiler tag? That way you're not accidentally seeing other people's responses, and for scorers (and anyone else) it's easy enough to display what people put in. Just a thought ...

Re: Friday, July 29, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the upshot is that they don't want to penalize someone for their mistake. Therefore, if you got money incorrectly, they don't take it away. If you had money taken away incorrectly, they give it back.

Re: About This Board

I banned him once, then banned him again, but it was a different IP number. So it's really just playing whack-a...

Re: WWTBAM Auditions?

The whole thing took about an hour and a half, so I had plenty of time to make my flight, which was something concerning me (and in fact I made the one two flights earlier). I didn't think I did particularly well on the test, but I did pass it (I'd say I got probably 24 or so out of 30). When I hear...
