    Wish I had a Dislike option. Can we just move BA to a facebook group?

    Am I going crazy or are a lot of the previous posts in here repeated? Regardless, I like flat view with quote so much better, it'll be a lot easier to see what posts are new. Style is incongruous but they're clearly working on that. I'm trying to figure out if there's an easy way to get an overview of updated threads.

    I updated the post. Old Beer Mails will eventually be view-only, but we will not be integrating them into the new system.

    This will take awhile to get used to. I assume that the pending events for approval won't get approved anytime soon....

    So far I like it, thank god this layout finally takes advantage of the full page width! But I agree, the black background is necessary if I'm gonna waste a lot of time on here while I should be working. Excited to see how things will be once everything is back up. Thanks to the Bros for the hard work, cheers.

    will there be any way to get a cached snapsot of our old profile page at all? I know alot people used that as a reference library, and I for one wont for the life of me remember all the stuff I had on there and some of the people that owed me things.

    We still have the data, so I see no reason why we can't eventually make is accessible. We'll do that the same time we make the old Beer Mails read-only.

    On the plus side, now that the site is slightly more generic looking, I can browse at work easier.

    I guess I don't understand what is going to happen. I looked at my profile page and it shows all of my beer reviews and some other information is gone. I hope all of that will be added back in. Also, will our main BA profile remain once everything is set up correctly? I want to be able to keep all of the info I have listed in terms of trades completed, etc.

    No. Just no.
