    Many traders posted trader info on their profile. From that page one can copy and paste the info.

    So, this is just out of curiosity, but in the future, will the forums be in a space like the old forums with data accessible from the side bars, or is that no longer an option? Like when I go to BA.com, will my "beer mails" show up, or will I have to go to the forums to see those?

    I know it may be a ways off, but it just seems like this is a whole different site, and BA is something I should have open in a separate tab.

    So this is more like Facebook, BA, and untapped all in one?

    Thank you very much. Likewise, I'm sure.;)

    This "alert" thingy is very interesting.

    Any chance the location will return along with peoples' avatars? It was always nice to have that quick idea of where someone was writing from.

    Bros. are still working to bring this forum together with the rest of the site. No timetable yet (I don't think)

    I just hope all my hard work and reviews are not lost. This is why I now review only on RB. Prove me wrong bros.

    OOOOh I hope Temple joins the Big East. Give me another reason to take a trip out to Philly. Monks Cafe, Independence Hall, Cheesesteaks, Troegs, Cole Hamels and Marquette thumping Temple! Make it happen!

    There is no way they are purging all their reviews. Those'll come online eventually, I'm sure.

    How can I insert pictures into a thread that are on my hard drive? Do they have to upload from an internet source?

    Yeah, use Photo Bucket or something like that but I, sorry, hope that the forums don't get flooded with pics and the site slows down because of it.

    I am currently outside but need to use the bathroom for #2. Can you please add a feature that makes this possible?

    Thank you.

    I'm digging the site, and happy to be back posting here on BA. Can't wait for further improvements, so in the meantime, I guess I'll drink a beer.

    In-line pics are pulled from the servers hosting them, not ours.

    Has it been mentioned yet that when you open a thread for the second time it takes you to where you left off?

    Bros.:

    I'm liking the return of our forums. No complaints from me, the BA community can be pretty demanding for a bunch of freeloaders. All I will say is THANK YOU (and sympathies for the trauma; hope you are at least enjoying a few good beers during this ordeal).

    I think it's cool to see the BA's member number when replying to a post. 708 thanks you.

    How come new beers keep popping up on the old beer advocate beer reviews page? What is the mystical secret path to continue reviewing beer at this time?
