Actually, I like this. Capt. Jack for short. Everybody will think of Torchwood, then.

Or, since he's blue and this is a Trek board, then Shran. (Isn't that the Andorian's name?)

Yeah, can't we just stick that big ad in the top banner or something?

Re: TrekBBS Contest: Name the Twitter Bird!

So, did UGO demand a bigger Ad-box or did the owner of this site cut a deal to get more money by increasing the size of the ad-box?

From the information that's been made available, it seems like AntonyF just felt like messing around. Even the mods weren't aware of the changes being made.

Re: TrekBBS Contest: Name the Twitter Bird!

I know how you feel. I have an Acer Aspire One, resolution 1024x600. This setup just eats up all my screen space. I'd have better luck using a Ouija board and a bag of tea grounds.

This just popped up too, except it was moving images and everything:



I mean, really. That's just silly.
This is what happens when you're no longer a Premium member. Wow, the ads have gotten much worse.

So dramatic.
It was a joke, but an accurate one. Don't you have nine threads to start about your latest everyday discoveries, like amazing things you've found in your navel?
I'll do a full cavity search and get back to you with my findings.
And i just lost it.
