      You don't get it do you? this change was FORCED upon them, hence why it happened without warning. The traffic will come back, the new infrastructure just has to be put into place. VMG is working as fast as they can.

      Any chance of either enabling Profile Pics or just removing them all together? If they are not enabled there is not point to having the generic pic in everyone's profile.
      Minor complaint, obviously not a high priority issue.

      I understand it was forced, due to negotions now working out. I would assume, that the new contractors wanted more money, or a longer contract, which VMG was not willing to pay or sign.

      There would be no reason for the ZF administrators to completely shut them down. Positive income to Zero income doesn't make sense. Someone didn't agree on price/contract.

      Problem is, that affects *all* sites. So if Vortex is using some crazy small fonts (which they are), and you zoom
      in to increase the font size, then when you jump to any external site, the fonts are too big.
      They should either make it an option for the users to set their font sizes, or just make the defaults bigger. They're too small.

      Can we have automatic image resizing at a member-set width?

      I like all my images reduced to 700px or 800px - used to have FV for that.

      If not, I'll write a file for the Opera browser that accomplishes this and share.

      Suggestion:

      Is the IM history / notepad stored in a database? if so, what kind? MySQL? It should be possible to write a script to email everyone their notepads just one time so that we could at least transpose the data ourselves. As long as you don't wipe the data out, I think some enterprising (read: desperate) folk could figure it out.

      I liked the plane gray separator between posts before. This new gradient one looks like it needs some tuning.

      But the watched topics that you had saved will not be there. That is not something that was carried over, unfortunately.
