    New feature: the Sportsbook

    For those of you who enjoyed vBookie, we now have Sportsbook. Use your moolah to bet. Find it by clicking the Sportsbook menu button.

    Nothing on the new skin front right now. My efforts are getting the forum optimized as best I can so the next skin will be fast.

    I may try to add a minimal skin for those who want just the basics.

    Clicking on the smilie icon when replying now opens up a larger window with a scroll bar. It's not ideal but better.

    We're still trying to help with load speeds of the forum—especially on game days.

    After some testing, I've dumped one of the ad networks which was holding up the load of the forum. I've noticed quite an increase in speed since last night but would like to hear from others.

    It's definitely faster, but "dismiss notifications" i slow at times. It takes a 5-10 seconds after you press "dismiss notifications" on the popup and the browser just says "waiting for gotitans.com".

    Hmmm... that hasn't been a problem for me but I'll investigate further.

    I'm testing a new chat area and would like your feedback.

    You can find it on the bottom of the forum home page. You can also access it via the menu for a full page version and a pop-up version.

    It is a basic chat that we may turn on only on gameday. I think it'll have a lighter impact on the server and might be a better option than posting in the game thread.
