This place is so easy to navigate through when there's no ads. :thumbup:

I guess we better enjoy it while it lasts.

the mobile version is much better! :thumbup:

This x100. The mobile version isn't some minimalistic gobbledygook which you cannot post on without annoyingly changing skins just to log in. Why are so many forums with a dedicated webmaster are so slow to update this despite it being a simple add-on? It is so much easier and more streamlined now with my iPhone's Safari browser that I certainly will post more often from it. This update kicks ass so far.

No, considering this site helps support my family. This place isn't a money-grab for me -- it pays bills (including those it creates). I dislike ads just as much as the next guy, but without the necessarily evil this site certainly wouldn't exist. Your support is appreciated.

(Apologies for the gruffness, but this is a severe sore point with me.)

Yeah, but I have IE, and don't want to change it just for ads.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

You know, you can install AdBlock Plus but still allow ads here on this site to help Matt out. It's not an either/or thing. That's what I do. So suck it up and deal with it here.

Everyone should now be getting the regular skin, with some minor color tweaking aside. If any of you are experiencing problems, please feel free to contact me through the forum's PM system here. (However, if the issue is color-related -- i.e., something looks a bit off, like a shade of blue or green -- then that's one of the small tweaks I'll be doing over the next couple of days.)

Hope you guys like the updates (better Facebook and Twitter integration, a new Member Map, among a whole myraid of other upgrades)!

Member map is wicked cool. I started out in the Congo by accident, but eventually I found my house and my old car was still in the driveway.

I like the mobile version. Much more iPhone friendly!

That said, two things I was wondering. The mobile version is the default blue & green. Is there any way you can update that to be more like LGW's standard color scheme?

Also, the mobile version shows the member's picture instead of avatars. Is it possible to change that to avatars?

Thanks again for all the hard work!

I definitely plan on adjusting the mobile template shortly. I'm not sure about the avatar/photo adjustment -- I'll look into it!
