    Just spent a good amount of time learning all about table collation in mySQL in order to fix the searches here on SB. Searches are no longer case-sensitive, which should be a huge help in the functionality of SB. Give it a try! Go find fun stuff!

    Was that what it was?! I suppose that I should have just asked.

    Great work James. I had not noticed specifically that the case-sensitivity was an issue, but I know for sure that many of us have been enternally frustrated by SB's search function. So happy you were able to give it a tweek. Here, here for James, and all his volunteer work to make this board a better place!

    Oh so happy about this change James, you da man for sure. I have long been lamenting this fact over in the FAQ section. Thanks for your ongoing efforts to make SB kickass even more.

    Since your Mr. skullbrain fix-it (and very efficient at it I must say) can you tell me why I have been dropped from the SSSS forum? I not only paid my dues this year but I'm still the moderator as far as I know, yet have no access?

    I MAY have made a new banner for the board and a new iOS shortcut icon for those of you who have bookmarks for SB on your iDevices. Maybe.

    I want the ability to make icon/buttons for hyperlinks to other sites. Clean up the sigs, sort of speak. I like how my flickr link is but I want just a tumblr icon for the other one. It would be a nice touch. James?

    ^ Just added some buttons for Flickr / Instagram / Twitter. You can add those things to your profile now, and a little button will show up under your posts that's a link to your profiles on those sites.
