    We hope so. As I just mentioned over in the Zoomie forum, we just wanted a place where the SA family could chat in peace.

    Welcome, and thanks for coming! :)

    This is a good start TN. Excellent job!

    O ya, I think you should allow img tags for sigs.

    You should be able to use IMG tags in sigs. However, uploading profile images to this server is disabled (except for mods, admins and supermods) in order to save bandwidth and storage space. You'll have to hotlink from another storage method (like imageshack). Avatars are the only images I'm allowing stored on the server.

    ok

    Zaph, I'm in. Not bad for the start up. Recommend academy crests as avatar choices through the sight. Of course, any knucklehead can crap one, but I am lazy.
    Its freakin' cold up here.
    Nice smiley menu.:shake:

    I like a dedicated forum. Its a good idea. You should probably add an ROTC section, maybe a dedicated Admissions section, since much of the process is similar across the bored for the academies, alot of the information applies. The best thing I think would simply be a tell all permenant FAQ on the best way to apply and what to expect from each academy. So many questions at CC were "which is better air force or army," "how many years do I HAVE to serve," or "What's a nomination?" Answering those questions would be great for a newbie so they don't much up the forums with questions that EVERYONE asks at some point.

    welcome to you and all the service academy appointees! But please tell the vast majority of participants on that board, and all of their admins, to stay there. What a sh!t show that board is...

    Edit: did i just reply to a 13 year old post? who dragged this up from the dead? How do you even find a post this old?

    Well I’m actually completely confused....I responded initially to someone else that dug this out, but now that post is gone.

    I swear on my Plebe I didn’t hunt this down

    Forum ghosts?

    No, I saw the newbie's post you replied to so you weren't dreaming. :thumb: He/she also resurrected an ancient post on Leathermans.
