    It's been a long time.....

    Hi there, everyone! I was inspired to visit this board today when I received a "Happy Birthday" email from the PWI board. It occurred to me that I never updated my email address on this board, so that would be why I didn't receive the same email from here. So, here I am. I thought I...

    font size

    Just curious, why is the writing so big on this board all of a sudden? Perhaps you could make it a second style set so those who don't need it so large can have it their way. I'm not complaining, but just making an observation.

    Defaut forum view

    When I logged on today, the board was only showing me the posts from the "last day". That is a function that can be changed in the user cp, which I promptly did........... Is the board set that way? Or was my preferences just screwed up somehow? (I've never changed them)...

    Welcome Back, PWN

    Welcome back PWN! I like the color selector........thats pretty cool. Some of the fonts are hard to read, other then that it looks good so far. Does it show a different color button when a forum contains an unread post? It needs to be a different color, not just a different...

    Up front money

    In another thread, it was mentioned about requiring percentages up front. My take on this, is that I dont charge them anything until I have done something for them. I require 50% at time of cleaning, and the rest at completion..........and I don't complain if they don't pay right...

    I just got a catalog in the mail from "MaxTool" and it looks pretty good. I didn't compare it to northern.......but overall I was impressed with the catalog. They have a 10' x 20' canopy in there for covering boats, trailers, etc for only $99!
