Not that there is much to complain about, the site isn't usually down, and it's usually sufficiently fast. But I don't think anything has changed for the better. Towards the end of Joe being in charge the site was every bit as well off as it is now.

The only thing I can complain about is that avatars not longer are automatically resized. That's rather annoying. But fixable with photoshop.

Not much to complain about.

I think it would be good to have a Foo report card thread for Internet Brands. So Foo, what do you think of how bikeforums has been going?

Jesus. I thought the head of your sig image was a bug tearing ass across my screen.

As for the site, it seems a bit more reliable than it's been, but still unreliable enough to be annoying at times. Growing pains, I'm sure. I can't speak for the irritatingness of the advertising, thankfully.

Other than that, haven't noticed anything.

Oh, and they killed that Al Qaeda leader in The Iraq. That was either the work of IB or Miss SC.

I consistently can't get into certain threads and subforums unless I restart the browser - very strange.

But I'll reserve judgment till the new server comes - till then it's still a good product for the price

Forgot last fall eh?...this has been a cakewalk...its called temp downtime, not ACTUALY downtime, and in the uptime promise (mostly because I can't spell gauruntee) 99.5% is pretty much a standard...

I am glad I haven't noticed a change...kudos to them
