Getting a better handle on the forums: As part of the 20+ site prep, we've been doing some way overdue improvements and maintenance to the forums. Today, the dev team put in some new anti-spambot measures, added strikethrough and spoiler code to posts, and created a support thread for bug reporting. Most importantly, we removed the "when were you born" question from the forums sign-up process. Anybody who was not able to log in (because you could not prove you were at least 13) should now be able to re-send their confirmation email and activate their account at Sluggy.net. This will be the only username and login you need for the new website, and the forums will stay essentially the same as they are.

And the link to the support thread is http://www.sluggy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=95899

Comic for 08/02/08

After realizing how hard it is to crane your neck to read the side panel I have decided to save your neck by giving you the side-box text here: "Warning! Years of Yarncraft may cause upset stomach, headache, and marriage counseling. Mild allergic reactions consist of an itchy rash or strange time-loss.  The most common side effects include: abdominal cramping and oily discharge. Some side effects are more severe and, depending on the game-style, may disrupt the function of the kidneys, liver, bone marrow, or other organs. Blood tests are used to monitor such adverse reactions. Mild allergic reactions consist of an itchy rash or slight wheezing. Do not play Years of Yarncraft if you are pregnant or nursing."
