So, you're saying, "Or retreat... but not retreat."

Wonderful point.

The list I'm talking about doesn't relate to main page nits. More things I'd like to do to change stuff. Or need to tweak for the better. A small sample:

- Whois feature is not working (Only mods will understand what this is, in forum terms)
- Other books list is very out of date
- Allowing the clicking of the 'red circles' on topics/threads to go into that item (we used to have this but it broke during an update and I lost the code so I have to figure it out all over again)
- Make a version of the Poll form that works when javascript is turned off
- Make a version of the Quiz forms that work when javascript is turned off
- Make a version of the other(insert section here) forms that work when javascript is turned off
- Prevent double voting on the Poll (again used to work but something has prevented it)
- Allow entries in the caption comp that contain ' and "
- Decommission the old 'slow' server so I'm not paying twice for the same thing
- Rescan pictures of Colyus, K'Temoc and Liator as the current ones are broken
- Reduce the number of style sheets needed by the site to one (most of this is done)
- Additional weapons. Move to a weapons list item with 1 or 2 pictures rather than the iffy additional page we have now
- Fix issues with browser conformance (IE). Some pages that scroll horizontally don't in IE despite being told to do so
- Fix the heading styles so they work better on all platforms (mostly done)
- Remove the frames layout from the system. This is quite a biggy but...
- Split the cast list into multiple pages. The current huge list is bad
- Change the forum spoiler tag to be visible if you roll over the item and not when you don't
- Add a page on games/recreation activities seen on episodes/films

and I'm sure there's more than that. Some of these items are pretty big.

On the "Federation Architecture" page, the picture of "A Federation scientific research outpost on Gamma Hydra IV" is in fact a picture of a person. Also, many of the Federation Uniform pictures seem to be the same picture captioned slightly differently. Unless there is some subtle nuance of difference between the photos I am missing.

I hate to badger but, in the personnel bios the name and picture of Mariah Henley do not match the text. While the picture is most definitely female (and likely Mariah) the text describes a male Maquis named Dalby.

Here's the link

And the Gamma Hydra IV research station remains a picture of a person. Link

Another nit:

The specs entry for the Voyager "Arena Ship" (Here gives the length as 1,600 meters but the Size Comp lists it at 500 meters. Which is correct?

The specs entry on the Sydney class lists the Jenolen as Jenolin in the unit run.

I'm aware of the issue. It's only a problem at the top level so you can open each group and click it then. I know it's still a pain but it helps. Working on a solution.

If thats the only problem then forget it and move on to other things. People will get over that.

I am so confused. If it was last updated in 1970 but it has Blu ray pics from the remastered TOS and not pictures off of a super fuzzy 1970 TV? I am so confused. Is this a sign we are in the Matrix? Or am I and you all are just figments of my imagination?
