Point taken. :lol:
You're right, if it is meant to be heard and is not, then it doesn't matter. Yet it may still be a very true message.

Bear in mind that common sense will tell you the world is flat. ;)

We probably have differing ideas as to what common sense is then :)

I figure this is a good a time as any to move this thread to the Announcements forum.

No, this is the announcements forum.

Not much of an announcement, though, at least in terms of the "no R&P signatures outside of R&P" - noone seemed to notice.

I notice a lot more thread resurrections since the new forum upgrade. I wonder why.

Is it just the icon now, or do they still say "moved" or "shadow" or whatever they said in phpBB2?
