    Hey Rogues, I'll be overhauling the forum organization and structure. The current layout is far too compressed for easy browsing. New sections will be created, old sections promoted to higher levels, threads from imported forums will start to be distributed to new sections.

    This is be an ongoing process for a couple months, so your feedback and patience are appreciated.

    Chaos is always less boring than humdrum.

    I don't mind chaos, as long as we can record it, store it permanently, and study it for years to come.

    Can you add a Southern colloquial dialect, central Alabama "Black Belt" named after the dark rich calcareous soil so I might better understand better????

    Need to be more specific which Southern dialect you desire. I speak Deep South/Gulf Coastal (Redneck, Middle Class and Blue Blood varieties), but am also fluent in Lower Appalachian, Tidewater, Delta, East Texas, and Ozark. I am passable in Yat, but if you want a better translation of that, you'll need to talk to Bobby (@A-58 ). I don't understand Coonass at all.

    Boss Lady is from Jackson, Mississippi. I suspect she could speak English if she had to, but haven't caught her at it yet.

    Why, Sir, would one wish to speak English when the more lyrical patois of Mississippi is available?

    She thinks she's speaking English. I want to get her in a room with someone from Tasmania and video the results.

    Is it safe to look yet?
    Have the forum headings using the 'word' 'thru' gone?
    :angrymob:

    I should say they came with mergers, but... thru... Really.

    Renaming, removing, and shoving some forums and sub-forums around. Mind your step.

    I still occasionally get logged out when clicking from one page to another. Just clicked on the Freefire forum from the Forums header and had to log back in ? No biggy but thought I'd let ya' know.

    This happens to me if I hit 'home' instead of forums.

    Thanks B & b. I appreciate the feedback, as I generally get so little of it.

    As it stands I'm done with updates to this server/site. The reason for this is we are:

    1) Moving to a new server. The new server will have it's own configuration, which will undoubtedly impact logins. It's not worth the effort to make any changes that will likely be undone in short order.

    2) Upgrading the forums software from XenForo 1.x to XenForo 2.x, Upgrading the software will present additional config changes and login options, hopefully logging in will not be necessary as long as you are using the same device/machine for access.

    3) Changing the URI location of the site from 'ww2f.com' to 'forums.ww2.org'.
