New SBN platform's gonna roll out
Wednesday morning Tuesday night.
Late update: by the way, should the developers choose not to give us an option to turn them on or off, I will be instituting a formal no-avatars policy on LL. If you choose to use an avatar, you will be mercilessly berated by myself and others until you make it go away. And that is a promise.
A later update: Trei, as you've probably deduced by now, this community is less than thrilled with the upcoming changes. Please consider our grievances and concerns. This place is already perfect. You can't improve on perfect. Do not drastically change things that don't need to be changed.
