Arcade is fully working now to the best of my knowledge.

I've reinstalled the WebTemplates mod that will pave the way to the later return of the Links page, the History page, etc.

I've also added:

The YouTube embed. :)

I couldn't find the one from before, but this should do.

Anything else missing? Possible requests? I have some time tonight and I'm on a roll so far.

Hey! I finally figured out how to do something I never did last time the arcade was installed: How to add more games! I had a big list of games ready to install last time that never saw the light of day. I never deleted them. Adding now!

Hicks

All games installed. That makes for 23 new additions to the ones that come by default. :)

What is iSpy?

It's like the News-Feed or Mini-feed on facebook...

New feature:

Xbox Live Leaderboard

This should be working now, but to help me out, do the following: If you have an XboxLive account, please go to your UserCP, then to Profile, and enter at the bottom your gamertag ID.

What should happen is it will list all PD members who are on xboxLive and keep updates on their scores, reputations, and games played.

There's mine now. Check the navbar (menu at the top of each page) for the link to where it will display all of us.

You should be able to invite people to your friends list, and even send messages through the Live Messenger this way.

If you move your mouse over the little avatar, you'll see my gamertag.

P.S. it takes a couple minutes for your tag to display after you enter it in your profile.

I've got a request...can you change your name back to Hicks? What's the story behind the name change anyways?

I don't think that's exactly a "feature"... ;)

I changed it because:

1) Tired of it (I've gone by Hicks007 and/or Hicks since Fall 1997)
2) Everyone incorrectly thought that it meant one of the following:
a) I'm a hick and proud of it
b) It's my last name
c) It's a reference to Hicks vs Knicks

Reason's 1 and 2a are the biggest (by far) reasons for changing it. Mal I like because it's short and sweet, references the Captain in a TV show I like (Firefly) who also his a character I identify with, and a bonus is it means "bad" in other languages.

ONe thing I've noticed, it used to be when you were looking at the list of threads, you could run your mouse iver the thread title and it would give a preview. Now it doesn't do that?

Any way we can type the Colts 3rd round pick's name without it getting censored?

Pit****.

Yeti Ylimpics and Mini Putt II appear to be broken. Otherwise I'm having a blast with the new games!

I've tried it on both my home and work computer and the faeture no longer works for me. Ive cleaned out cahce and cookies, and still same problems.

I'm also having a problem at home where it won't keep me logged in.

I have no idea.....

Hicks

Well I just tried again Gyron and it works when I'm on a specific board (Pacers, Colts, Feedback...), but if I try to do it browing with the "new posts" link, they don't work there for some reason.

There we go.

That makes sense because all I ever use is the "new posts" Feature. I rarely ever go directly to the forums themselves.

He keeps PMing me for child support for my kid he's raising.

If I could find your house, I'd be knocking on your door. But since you hide the location of your webcam so well.....

Minor xboxlive feature added. You have to enter your gamertag a second time in another place in your profile (this time it's up with the instant messenger stuff) to make it work, but if you do you'll get what's underneath my avatar and post count.

Hicks

So important I get my own box!

The above is a minor addition as well. You place text inside the box and you make the "title" of the box whatever you want.

Without the *s do this [*fieldset="title goes here"]IMPORTANT[*/fieldset]

Which would look like this:

IMPORTANT

New feature: Find user's given location on Google Maps.

Click on the little globe in front of a user's listed location, and it will take you to google maps with that location already entered.

Obviously doesn't work on joke locations. :-p

Hicks

New minor feature: SendPM button in each post next to Edit and Quote. I've requested LA to make a matching button for it so it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb.

The Google Maps thing is cool. When I clicked on mine it directed me to the Cape Cod Airport and only a few clicks away from my best friend's house.

I got a request, you should install the feature which allows users to change their own username. I want to change my username to Corey Matthews but I dont want to have it for too long.
