    Many thanks to admins!

    patience is the key word. it's a new system we're getting used to just like you guys are getting used to too. nice thing is the place is much more resistant to attacks from people with malicious intent.

    It's OK, all good. Security is a big issue any more, and I'm thankful that you have that in our best interests!

    I do a bit of IT work (on the side) and I can't even tell you how many folks are just STUPID blind, deaf, and dumb when it comes to locking down their systems. They'll just mouse-click on ANYTHING that shows up on the screen and wonder why their machine takes a big dump. FACEBOOK??? Really, folks??? That's a virtual virus. Porn sites??? Are you kidding me??? You WILL be infected. If you can't research the anti-malware solutions on your own, get someone to do it for you and LOCK YOUR SYSTEM DOWN.

    OK...end of rant...and thanks again!

    well....here's the rub, to be a mod and admin here, your mind must love to wallow in the gutter, be willing to derail conversations and have a good understanding on how things click, whirr, buzz and blink every now and then. computer genius skillz is not a overwhelming requirement. but it does help :D

    my support status expired and I'm looking to renew. I only see a 6 month re-up
    can you guys add a few longer options? I'd like to sign up for a year or three. so I don't have to dick around with PP every couple couple months.

    I submitted my paypal to become a supporting member last week, it has yet to show up on my profile. I am attempting to buy some parts from IDI0T, but he requires that this step is completed first. In an effort to acquire these parts, I would like to humbly request an update on when I might expect my verification to be completed. Thank you.

    @DirtRoads I have the upgrade posted, not sure why it didn't happen automatically, I will send a message to Shaggy to look into it.

    @IDIoit, Brian, there you go......

    I hope this doesn't sound like I'm whining as I read through this thread and understand that new system and admins are people with lives outside of the forum, but I upgraded a little over a week ago and would like to have my orange name plate. Can anyone of the admins check into this for me please?
