Or is he just a part of your coverup so that you don't have to admit your misdeeds?

I haven't really been known to be ashamed of my misdeeds, but lets not rule out any theory. :wacky:

Cause people don't already overuse the smilies we have. Lol..

We'll see.

As far as Baidu (Spider), it appears to be a bot.

Whoops, there is no problem, just that the site doesn't send us notifications of new users that have applied for accounts, so I have to manually check and I am always forgetting.

However, I don't see anyone by that username who is in the inactive users? Has she been able to create an account but just not log on, or not even create an account?

Here's her message to me:

I've been trying to register for an account on The Soda Shop Message Board, and I am not able to successfully log in yet, nor have I received an email regarding confirming the account. The site says to contact the administrator, but I'm not able to find any contact information. I know some of you are on there--Do you happen to know who I could contact to get my account approved?
She's on AIOWiki as Byebyebrownie if that helps.

I did just activate a user with the name Byebyebrownie! She should be all set now.

This is maybe a super dumb question: How do I change the ice cream flavor that appears with my username and information on posts?

Great question! The ice cream flavor is your current "rank" on the board. It changes depending on how many total posts you have on the board. After Vanilla is Strawberry, then Chocolate, and so on. :)

Oh, cool! I was thinking that was maybe the case, but I wasn't sure. :) Thanks!!

Greetings, Soda Shop Admins/Mods. I just noticed the following message on the SS:
We will be going offline Sunday, August 15, beginning at 1:00 am ET for maintenance.
I was just wondering how long can we expect it to be offline? Will there be any major changes being made? And most importantly, what are we supposed to do while it's down? ;)

-- Sun Aug 15, 2021 8:12 am --

Never mind, it looks like it was just down overnight and is back again. Phew!

Oh! I missed this question. Yes, I took the forum offline just overnight for updates, maintenance, and to try to fix some issues we've been having with posting. :yes:

That last issue was partially fixed; longer posts seem to be working now. But there are still some weird cases where server errors are being encountered, so it still needs further work. I'm slowly working on it and hopefully it'll be all sorted out soonly! :wacky:

So to answer your questions...

Not immediately after that down time. But it enabled me to do things later. Like today I made updates to the style to fix spacing in the dropdown menus AND added support for the Who Was Here extension, so I enabled that too. :mad: BAM! New feature.

Could there be a subfolder thing on episode study for AiO Club Exclusives? It would make it a lot easier for non-club members to find the mainstream Odyssey episodes to discuss. Especially considering that club members get to listen to mainstream episodes months in advance, so the new mainstream episode topics sometimes get a little buried.
