Ok I'll try it thanks!
"Let me get this straight. I bet all those non-friends of yours try to embarrass you about your love for that stuff, right? So, you almost feel like you have to hide your treasures away and can only take them out in secret on rainy days when your mom goes to the store to get more liver and nobody is around to berate your sensitive spirit. Is that what you’re saying?" -Jay Smouse

How do I upload a gif?
What website should I use to transfer one from my files to the Soda Shop? Please help.

You must use a hosting site. Personally I like photobucket, but if you don't want to make an account, I suggest tinypic.com or imgur.com.

What exactly is the ToO chat and how do you pronounce it anyway?
And also, why can't I post in the Basement?

I'm not actually an admin but...
The ToO is an acronym for Town of Odyssey, another message board for Odyssians. It can be found here: http://thetoo.com
Also, it's been around much longer than the Soda Shop.

The basement is where they keep the outdated topics we have no need for. Most of the rusting topics are completed games, predictions for albums that already aired, and announcements made three years ago. The basement is basically like a walk through the Soda Shop museum, there isn't really a reason to add a topic to the collection unless we're done with it.
Hope that helped :)

That was very informative, GJFH.

As for the pronunciation, people of the ToO have debated about it for a while. Some people like myself spell it out like "the T-O-O," while other people actually say it as a word, "the too."

The ToO chat is a irc chat for the members of the Town of Odyssey board. I believe it has played a central role in bringing the two boards together, which is why I placed a link to the chat on the board in a prominent place. :)

Is there any chance we could see a temporary return of Adventures in Odyssey Hurt and Heal? I know the games tended to get spammy, but it would be fun for old time's sake.

Locally Known Strawberry Malt. And again, I'm not an admin, sorry.

If you friend a person, does it show up in their UCP that you did, or is it a personal list? If someone friends me will they be added to my own friend list?
