And I would love feedback from ya'll. Are these interesting? Informative? Are there other stats you'd like to see or think that I should discontinue posting? Should I stop posting these recaps every Friday all together? Serious answer only, please.

This is 2 weeks in a row that I've had to start this discussion. So I suppose I should ask [b]What's gone wrong at TR?[/b] Col

Not that you hide it, mind, but Wrong you declaim registers Plus on their meters. The Scoreboard celebrates what used to be. It is vestigial. It will shrivel. And, besides, the rah-rah is unseemly for what passes today as Plus, compared to the untame of yesterday.

That the Site Upgrade has not as yet migrated to the Discussion Forums like it has at the Q&A Forums. No action at all there for a few days now and according to the server [b]There are no new threads.[/b] With improvements like that and increased Site Traffic what can I say? [/sarcasm] Col
