I think I like this format better than proboards.

Yeah, this seems to have a more accessible feel and look.  Nice job setting this up, Andy.

Question: If we ultimately decide to make this the primary board, Andy, can you take the [backup] off the title?  Or would you have to set up a new forum?

As you can see, there was no problem removing [backup] from the forum name. 

If a majority prefers, we can change the name to something else (like Chicago Sports Forum) and even add some additional separate categories on the main page. For example I added 'Chicago Bulls'  category as a test.  We can add a Bears or Blackhawks category if people want and still retain the http://sox.createaforum.com URL.   

We can even split off a separate "World Today", "College Sports" or "TV & Cinema Revue" category if people want to keep the White Sox category purely about baseball.

I'll leave that up to JhonJeter.

How much would it cost to make this board ad-free?

I don't know. I'll have to find that out.

However, I'm using Firefox 3.6.16 with Adblock Plus as an add-on and I see no ads here or at over 99% of the other website I go to.

I gotta say... this forum looks so much cleaner and modern than World Crossing.  Seems fairly user-friendly too.  Nice!

I think I have found my mistake that was creating multiple threads of the same topic.  Hopefully they won't reappear again.

I do like this format better than the older one, even though I has made it to rookie ball on the other board.

Yes Joey $15 @ month is a little high to just block ads at only this site.

Best bet is to use Firefox as a browser and then add-on Adblock Plus (both free) and you'll never see an ad again on 99+% of the websites you visit. 

I did this a couple of years ago and I very rarely find a site that their ads are displayed to me.

Adblock Plus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

Great!  Glad it works for you.  Much better than paying a fee to block ads here.

Joey, I added you as a moderator here.  Is that OK?

If anyone else wants/needs to ad Adblock Plus to their browser, the info can be found here:

Fine by me.

Like before, I'll just be using my powers to move threads to archives and create new threads as necessary.

And to cater to Jeter's wishes, of course.

No catering for Jeter please. He is way too demanding.

We have a **** issue here. Profanity is being asterisked out. Even "p i s s e d off" got it. If I want civil language, I'll go to Over Auntie's Garage.

Is there a setting that can adjusted?

I didn't set any censor option.  Let me poke around in the Admin area to see if there is anything I can tweak.   Bear with me, this may take awhile since the Admin area isn't well organized.
