The stars have aligned so that the mod I've wanted to use and the version of SMF available both match. So I've got some changes planned. It'll probably be slow, as these things often are. So bear with me. And as always, let me know if you have any problems. :)

I've got the main theme mostly done, minus a couple of image changes that I don't have the computing resources to make at the moment.

Once I get those done, it'll be time to go to work on the House themes.

About half-way through the image editing thing. Don't have the usual weekly telecon today, which is always a good time to do stuff like that. I'll try to finish them either today or during tomorrow morning's 7am conference call.

The Gryffindor theme is set up, minus the images and a couple of small cosmetic changes to make sure all the text appears properly outside the thread/post boxes.

So is the money thing one of your new changes?  I like it, it reminds me of how another website I'm on used to be, before we were hacked.

Yep, it's a new thing. I'm hoping at some point to add a few games and some more things that can be bought, but it will take some time.

Aaaaaah!  The Gryffindor common room back to the way it was (more or less).

Thanks, Ping!

I like the money thing - I think it will encourage a lot more activity!

Um, how does the money thing work?  Is it keyed to number of posts?

Yeah, you get a certain amount for posting a new thread and a certain amount per post to existing threads. I think it's 10 and 8 right now. I went through and gave everybody 8 for every post so far. You can also bank your money and earn interest.

Hm.  So, two questions:

1)  Why do you have only 574 knuts when you have 2,732 posts?
2)  How do you bank your money?

Okay, three questions:  Are we going to have virtual prizes that we can buy with our money?

[Edit: okay, I noticed the shop thing up near the top after I posted, so never mind with all of them.  I'm leaving this post here, however, in case some other unaware doofus has the same questions I did]

I banked all mine. In addition to the current things you can buy, I hope to add a few more things. As ever, as time allows. If only I could be independently wealthy and not have to work...Or both. :)

I haven't mentioned it, but I really like the News link at the top of the page.  Great content!

Thanks for all your hard work, Ping.
