Would your Shecknara outfit pass muster?  ;D

Have fun, you guys!  Tell everyone hi for me!

Yeah, you definitely made the right call.  The mods and betas don't really have anything to prove, and we wouldn't want fans feeling like there was something holding them back from a higher score!

Dang, I feel a bit of an a** now for having the highest score.  Course, I could always pin a good bit of that on 'Scellie, since her letting me crash at her place for NYCC last year got me started on the whole signed-books/cosplay/interact-with-Jim thing.  ;)

The Goddess has minions to participate in armed combat in her name.

1 am EST is the daily backup time of the boards.  In the old system, the backup used to take 20-30 minutes until we purged a lot of stuff from the system and moved servers (iirc), and then it took maybe 5.  Maybe.  Could be that the newer board software is partly causing the longer backup times.

Got someone on it yesterday.  Thanks, though!  Serack, this is my official "Someone's working on it" post. :D

Did it fit a possible spam profile in some way, such as being chock full of links, image links, attachments, or heavy formatting?

That sort of stuff is going to get kicked to moderation simply as a matter of course under the newer software as part of our effort to prevent spam. Hopefully the moderation engine will eventually learn that some posts don't need to be held for review.

It may also be due to heavy copy/paste.  It's happened to me on a couple occasions where I've typed up the post in a text file, and then copied it over to post.  So much text must have so much time in the reply box, it seems.

*I tried to create a different new sticky in the WoJ section today and it says it "needs approval."  Could one of the admin's approve it please, and also transfer this post to the WoJ section for stickying (or another area if it is deemed more appropriate)*

I... got nuttin'.  You'd think I'd be able to approve it.  Hrm.

The Aquarium is in the Inner Harbor. If you're taking I-95 North, you want to get off at the I-395/ML King Blvd exit. Keep left and the exit turns into Howard Street. (Do not take MLK.) Follow it down two blocks and turn right onto Pratt Street; the convention center will be on your right. The Inner Harbor is two cities blocks down Pratt. There's two big shopping center/touristy things called Harborplace. All the restaurants are inside of that--except for Hard Rock Cafe which is across from the Aquarium.

I'm only suggesting the Inner Harbor because it's super close to the convention center, same side of the street, and the easiest place to get to. Plus comicon goers wouldn't have to move their cars. But I'm the newbie, so...

If you are going to the con, the best place to park is the Days Inn parking garage. It's right across the street from the convention center and usually has the best rates in the area:

It's one thing knowing where it is and how to get there, it's another to have someone in the car screaming "THIS IS THE EXIT! NO, NOT THAT ONE, THIS ONE!"  I feel more comfortable not driving alone.  Also, easier to stay awake on the drive home after. 

Again, all i know is the Aquarium.  I don't know /where/ it is in the city, nor how to get there, not off the top of my head.

Guys, I really do think I'm going to have to bail.  I need to conserve my money and all that jazz.  And all I know about Baltimore is B&N, Hard Rock Cafe, and the Aquarium.I got no clue where I'm going, and I don't navigate and drive well at the same time in unfamiliar territory.  It's just a personal comfort thing, since I don't think there is anyone who would come with me.  Also of import is the fact my mother has a stress fracture in her right foot, so no driving anywhere for her.  I get to be chauffeur for the next 3-6 weeks.

I haven't had any issues on my end.  I'm running Firefox 5.0.1 on OS X 10.6.8 and the average load time for most pages is about a second or two.  If that.

It's not working very well with Firefox 5.0.1  I'm only getting 2 posts per page and the second one is blacked out so I have to highlight it to read.

Strange, I haven't had that issue at all with the boards since the switchover, and I'm also using FF 5.0.1.  In fact, it's the browser that runs it best for me.
