Being able to change your username?
How would that work exactly? And how would we know who the person is afterward?

Another thing - is there any way to turn off the new photos in posts feature once it is added? I have dial up and if there's a ton of pictures on the page the site will take forever to load.

The name changes are shown as a link on the person's profile. I wouldn't want to allow lots of changes so that we avoid tons of name changes all the time. Who knows, maybe we will allow one name change in a year or one change in a month or none at all without help from staff. Not sure yet but it is an available option which makes it good in my book.

The posted images... Great news for you! There is actually a setting that you can use to turn off all images posted in the forums. This would keep things loading fast for you. As an alternatve you would also be able to use the mobile skin which is made specifically for slower internet connections like mobile devices and dial-up connections.

Sounds good to me. It seems like you've really gone all out on this one, Admin. Haha. I'm looking forward to the new changes.

Check out the little ChipIn widget on the sidebar. Clicking that button will take you to the Paypal page for donations. The widget will also keep track of how far we have to go.

OK a new demo board has beenc reated in case you missed the last one. There isn't really anything there now so feel free to create an account, play around, try posting stuff and whatever else you want to get a feel for what is possible. Remember that the look of the demo is NOT what it will look like for TT. We will definitely tama-fy this!

check out the new demo

I just checked out the new TamaTalk Test Board - it's simply amazing! I really hope that you get the funds to upgrade TamaTalk, Admin!

I'm going to see if I can pitch in by purchasing a Lifetime Angelgotchi Membership. :)

Thanks SamJJE101!

Originally I was planning on keeping these donations separate from the Angelgotchi program... But how about if we go ahead and say that for the fundraiser you can donate towards an upgrade and receive Angelgotchi credit at the same time. You can help us upgrade + get the badge and extra PM space for yourself at the same time!

OK our second demo/test forum is about to expire. I have set up a new one so please feel free to check it out if you haven't already. You can see it here.

All the stuff from the demo will be deleted after 10 days so post whatever you want but make sure to check it out and then let me know what you think!

Well the ChipIn widget does not have the current total of money we've raised as part of this fundraiser... Right now we are right at 67% of our goal! This is fantastic!

Please help us reach this goal if you haven't donated already. Every little bit helps! A donation of even $1 helps get us closer and closer to the total needed.

For those not wanting to use Paypal I also have another option for credit card orders using Google Checkout. PM me if you are interested.
