Stuff might be broken for a while. Just an FYI.

Thanks for the heads up, especially because when the site sometimes doesn’t load for me, I wonder if you finally pulled the plug. (And I don’t want you to do that)

I think I might have screwed myself. For some reason I'm getting a memory limit error, which might force me to bump up the server to the next size up. Which doubles the cost of maintaining the place. 

SHIIIIT.

Well, maybe not. Let's see how this goes.

A few things I know do not work, so bear (or bare, if you prefer) with me.

1. Multi-quotes aren't working yet. Sorry OTrap.
2. You can no longer add a comment when you rep. I may add that back, but that's low priority. If you want to comment while repping, quote them and respond in the thread.
3. Search on mobile is broke AF. I'll work on that later.
4. I know there will be some display issues. I will fix them as I come across them.

With the new layout, all sports forums (Pro, College, HS) have been consolidated into one Sports forum.

Use this thread to post any bugs you come across.

Also, the old forum homepage has been removed and the All Threads page is now the homepage.

"finally, the overhaul we've all been asking for" -- nobody.

I see the Latest Post button is only taking you to the page of the latest post, but not actually scrolling you to the post. I know that's never really worked in Safari on the iPhone. I'll fix it for desktop, at least.

This update should fix the random issue of the site not actually loading randomly. 

Sorry for the convenience, Monty.

The site seems to be operating much faster on my end. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience Monty.

Avatars seem to be randomly breaking. Weird.

Avatars are fixed. That was dumb.

Am unable to post a meme in that thread. When I try to upload, an error message appears.

Also, is there a button somewhere for editing your post?  And is it possible to fix the rep counter?

I forgot to mention that was a known bug. You can post an image if it's hosted somewhere else (I think, I haven't tested yet) but uploads are not working at the moment.
