Actually, it's going to change every day now. Keeps it from getting stale.

Rich, did you notice that your announcement is valid "(August 08, 1999 through January 01, 1900)"? Is TFL Y2K ready?

Good eye, Ewok. I rechecked the settings...the system shows the kill date as 1/1/2000. The software reads it as 1/1/1900. Don't know whether this is a problem in the UBB Software or Spark's Server....

Oh, Spa-a-ark. Could you magically appear and respond to this?

Rich, also, another idea:

Under conference center, among those topical areas themselves (Gen disc, legal/pol, etc.), if you put the General Discussion forum either second or last under this section, with Legal & Politcal first, I think you will get even fewer posts under General Discussion than before.

Announcements are found at the top left of all "main" forums screens. It'll be right under the TFL logo.

Rich, it's a Y2K complaince issue with the software. It got fixed in 5.38c or d I believe, but since 5.39 is due out this week, I'd wait to upgrade.

SPARK: either I am blind or there is a major problem with what i am receiving. I have very carefully checked every screen for anything that says ANNOUNCEMENTS. I have looked above the logo, under the logo, to the right of the logo, behind the damned logo, at the bottom of the various pages and I have yet to find the ANNOUNCEMENTS link. This is a joke, right, there is no ANNOUNCEMENTS link, Rich and you say there is just to see how soon we all go nuts? LOL


NOW, After driving myself crazy, well at least a little loco, the dadgum "what's new" link appears. Still nothing that says ANNOUNCEMENTS on the main screens.
