Keypicking Maintenance Complete

Ladies and Mentlegen,

The server maintenance is complete. If you encounter any issues while using the site please send me a PM with as much detail as possible. I would recommend everyone clear their browser cache. The majority of the updates done to the site were done behind the scenes. They are code updates and you will not notice anything different. However, there are some new features we decided to add that you can see:

- CHAT: Clicking on a user's name in the chat text window will automatically let you send a whisper to them.
- CHAT: There are new menu items added on the user list when you click on a user's name.
- CHAT: There is no more 'Image' button. We disabled that feature and the button was useless.
- CHAT: We added a VERY small amount of emoticons..... please do not spam them!
- CHAT: The styling of the chat has been altered to appear somewhat darker.
- FORUM: Added all of the pick/pin/lock themed emoticons to the board.

Thanks!

Many thanks for all the work, xeo. Without guys like you doin their thing here, I'm sure we'd be somewhat screwed for sure.

Looks cool and runs really cool. Many thanks.

And my oh my ..... just a "a VERY small amount of emoticons" indeed :D

Thanks for all the hard work guys! One of the things I just love about this site is that
shit's not being constantly changed up. I mean yeah, you keep things running smooth
and you add some nice things here and there.... but it's not a huge face lift of sorts.

Youtube & Photobucket are notorious for this. Every time I finally get the hang of everything,
the entire site gets an "upgrade", supposedly making it better. And I end up back at square one.
Shit pisses me off to no end. Anyway.... lol.... what I meant to say is thanks. BEST site EVER!

p.s. Oh, on the main page - what use to be 'View Your Posts' is now {SELF_POSTS}.
Is this working properly or is it just me? It seems to just bring up the main board again.

I see it's now gone. Just curious... will it still be an option in the future? I found it quite useful.

This appears to be something that was missed during the upgrade. This site had a lot of code modifications, some of which were difficult to find and thus were overlooked. I am planning on adding this back. Thanks Mike!

Cool. Thanks Xeo.

Sure, you can just as easily go to your profile and view your posts. BUT, doing that actually
shows you each individual post that you've done. The option from the board however will
show each topic/thread in which you've posted and if there's anything new with each one.

Anyway, if the powers that be decided not to have it, I'm sure I'd get along just fine. But I use
it very often and find it's a good way to keep up-to-date on anything I may have put out there
(be it a question or answer... be it a thread I stared, or someone elses I posted on). I have a
horrible memory, lol. I hate to leave anyone hangin', and this is a great tool to prevent that.
