He is already on there in the number two position behind me. You just can't see it because of the mobile version. For some reason it eliminates the names with an "@" before them. First post is edited for readability, removing the "@" signs on the official list...

Please note, for those of you who were in the Sixth Edition, I am not going to automatically add your name to the list. Please put in your requests to be added to this list.

Thanks. (As troublesome as Tapatalk is, the mobile version of BF isn't a whole lot better...)

The box has landed, and in good shape. I will try to get it out Friday or Saturday. I have Lascauxcaveman's address.

I stopped putting the "@" in front of names on Post #1 - I'm sure you know that this makes it hard to read when editing. I thought it would be a good idea, since it would automatically send an update to everyone on the list, but figured later that anyone that wanted an update could just subscribe.

I thought perhaps I could sneak in a table somehow. I think that would make the listing on the first page more readable.

But no... Wouldn't want to give users any basic layout functionality... Such a feeble system. (Apologies for the small rant. Running on lack of sleep. Will probably be cranky all day. I need a bike ride.)

I dunno, I kinda like the old school clunkiness of this site. The fact that it doesn't change ever 3 months and I have to relearn where all the features went is a feature to me.

Plus, the price is right.

Here she is, as found, and my haul. I will probably not be able to ship it 'til Monday, but it will have some good quality crap added for sure.

Nice, and you took four things I threw in! Glad you could use ‘em!

I have to agree. It works just fine, particularly if you are not using a mobile version.

I hate the mobile version. Even though I’m a paid member, it still shows me ads. And the functionality is no better.

The mobile version is only useful in a toilet stall at work.

At least that's what I use it for.

When I'm in that position, I scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "View Full Site" as quickly as my thumbs can twiddle. Mobile site is terrible.

Just one of the many charms of BF. Like the so-called search function. It's fun to try it every now and again, just see if it's somehow managed to get WORSE than the last time you used it. It rarely disappoints!

I always click view full site as well. I can alway pinch and expand to make it bigger for my eyes.

Ha! Ya big drama queen, ya.

I'll probably get it off to Doc tomorrow, after all. The problem is, as always, repacking it tightly as possible, so it's almost impossible to repack unless your recipient takes out a lot of crap. We'll see if I can get it done before Mr. Postman stops by around noon tomorrow. If I fail, then Monday for sure.
