TMMLH. I actually feel sorry for the dumb fuck for what's about to happen to him. That's a nice watch in the masthead, too.

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Just an FYI, the upgrade and migration of data will take the forum down for a short while and will probably done late night when only bogans from OZ and some other owls are around. Not sure of the timing of this but will let you know.

The software update will be occurring in the next 48 hours, and it should take about 45 minutes. If you visit Watchlords during the update, you will see a "We will be back online soon" page.

As part of the update, everyone will be logged out. Please make sure the email address in your profile is correct, because if you cannot remember your password, you will need a valid email address in your profile to reset it.

In the navbar of the new board, roughly at the location of the current Chatbox link, there will be a Notifications link. Please make sure to click that link after you log in, and then click the Settings link at the top right of the dropdown box. The new software has a notifications system, and you should set the types of board notifications you want to receive.

All email notifications are disabled by default; you must "opt in" to receive email from Watchlords. This will hopefully minimize the chance of emails being delivered to your spam folder.

The migration is complete. The board may look very similar to before, but there are many changes. Please make sure to check your notification settings as mentioned above.

Here's a couple new features:

1) You can select two different themes, either this default theme, or the theme that is being used at bestdamnwatchforum.com. Both themes work well on smartphones and tablets.

2) When reading a topic, you will find a button at the top, to the right of the Post Reply button, that looks like T!. Clicking that button will cycle through four different font sizes for posts. The size you select will be saved.

If you have any problems or questions, please feel free to ask.

Hey, do I notice changes? :wink:

Nice work, all.

Ok, it has been about 3 weeks since Dion did all of the heavy lifting for BDWF and here.

Are there any changes or wish list items you (haters, bogans and orks) might want to see such as font change, new smiles, new trolls?
