Signature problem

I see that it doesn't seperate the signature lines. A space (or better yet, a line) should be after you post and before your sig. Looking to correct this, bear with me...

When are they gonna bring the 2600 to the VC? Maybe a pack of games for $10, that would be great.

Re: What's Up?

My name is Matt and I'm from Oklahoma. I, also, saw the posting on the DP forums so I decided to pop over and check it out. I first fell in love with gaming when I received a 2600 in 1985 (at the age of 5) and have gamed almost continually since then. I have a decent sized collection of consoles (f...

Re: Hello all!

Kudos to Ter for getting this site up and running! My name's Rob and I've been a video game addict since around 1985, when I played my first game of Frogger on the 5200. I started amassing a collection even then, as I was one of those kids that couldn't throw anything away so I saved everything and...

Re: Forum for imports

That sounds like a good idea. Where do you think I should put it? In the modern sub-forums or under Specialty forums?

The board is still having problems with sending e-mail. Apparently, no one is getting any conformation or new topic posts e-mails. I am expiramenting and sending test e-mails.In the meantime, I set it up so new users don't have to use e-mail conformation (a spammer's dream). If anyone got any mail, ...

EGM is gone! :(

http://digg.com/gaming_news/Ziff_Davis_Sells_1UP_To_UGO_Hearst_Closes_EGM?FC=PRCK1 Although this sucks and I am upset about it, in all honesty EGM died when Ed Semrad left. Even then it wasn't the same as when the great Steve Harris ran it, with Don Neuart at his side. Kind of like when Captain Amer...
