Why can't we have a plethora of deities to invoke?

Perhaps we have been invoking HIM with the wrong name, if HE logs in from time to time as webmaster HE might get a pm sent to webmaster.

Indeed the conjoined twin entity known as Shara has close to 5000 each

I'm sorely tempted to message them my indignant ire , but I'm sure they'd fill my message board in return . :fear:

looks like a lot of them joined before Doc visited.
So lying low in case they were needed later.
Of course its all random spam.

Well, he apparently deleted the option to filter topics by number of views. At least it has not been on my screen today. Anyone else with this problem?

Go to “User control panel”. You can find it by clicking on the three little arrows to the upper left of the screen.

Click on “Board Preferences”.

Click on “Edit Display Options”. Scroll down to options.

Set the option “Display Topics Ordering By” to “Views”.
