Hi folks!

A short (and late no less--I'm at work today, and of course, since I've been gone this shift has sucked) update this week.

Unfortunately, I was called out of town on a moment's notice for a family emergency for a week. That's why I had to ask bsh1 to post last week's update for me, and it's why this week's update'll be relatively short. I am, however, back in town, and intend on having some substantive updates next week (but then, "The best laid plans o' mice and men", of course, considering there was no way I'd know that I'd first get sick, and then have a death in the family, so I'm becoming even more hesitant to say anything's gonna get done, considering I feel like the last 3 updates at least have been "Oh, next week", and then something catastrophic happens and I look dumber than usual...).

The AAN tournament is proceeding well, and the voting initiative has been working, although my week's absence may have set things back a skosh--still, as always, if anyone has a debate that is unvoted and almost to the end of its voting period, please send me a PM. I'll note I really would rather a PM than, say, a posting on my profile. It's easier to keep track of things with PMs.

Progress is being made on all the fronts that I wanted to get things done on. It's not always obvious or apparent progress, despite my committment to transparency, but it's progress nonetheless.

There will be an early update this coming week, no later than Friday, barring catastrophe (Which, at this point, I'm not even sure what's left....I get hit by a bus?)

This week's Trivia/History bit is:

About signatures! You don't have to actually ADD a post to change your signature. Just go to the "Add a post" section, and fill out the signature, and click to "review". As soon as you do that, the signature change is locked in--you don't have to actually POST the post. So every "sig change" post you see? It's unnecessary.

As always, PM me or bsh1 with any questions or concerns, and this thread's here for folks to reach out to, as well.

You can't do this anymore. It hasn't worked for about a month IMC.
How about NO elections?

It's how I got my signature to be what it is...and I did it less than a month ago. And I just tested it again, and it worked for me.

While I think you've definitely got a point, please remember that fundamentally site coding is not something that's directly in my power to achieve, so I can't possibly make promises about it.

I know, but I assume it's an easy fix and is beneficial to not only the debator's but to the average joe stumbling into the site, as well as to Juggle's bottom line. It's a win-win-win situation.
