I can not regestir a new accont (Using e-mail's which I know I didn't reg. with this site) anyways when ever I press sumbit it just sits there and says the page is done loading, I think there is something worng with this OLD AND OUT OF DATE message board (sorry the truth hurts) sorry I sound pissed ;( 

Suggestion:  There should be in the PE Stock Room a Futurama Commentary Vol. 3 DVD forum.  I mean it is just unorganized to have 3 posts where you got to go throught 100 posts just about the count down to the DVD.  Why not have one thread for Vol. 3 DVD commentary. Then when you talk about the commentary put episode title first, and put the comments in a spoiler box.  This is just much better since we all should love the DVD commentaries, and you would agree.  What are your thoughts.

If you could start this thread you could make the thread you're talking about, as you probably won't get a very good response by telling others to make it for you.

I don't watch commentaries.  Anyway, new suggestion:  Make a whole part of the website (like as big as PE Stockroom or Fan Art/Fiction) devoted to favorites and least favorites posts and polls.  And have an admin (if possible)  make 2 special polls.  A 72-number favorite episode poll with no posts and the same with favorite character.

I am aware of that, but with no posts, the poll could go on forever to keep up with new Futurama watchers, not just the people who were registered in August.  By the way, in case you were thinking that I was new, I'm not.  I just wasn't on the board.  A lot of people are the same.  Simpsonsfan14, you've been here since August with 11 posts?!?  38 days here and I have 106.

EDIT: Such a n00b was I that I criticized someone for their post count and bragged about mine and for that I am sorry.

Simpsonsfan, maybe people would take your comments and suggestions better if you could STRING TOGETHER A FREAKING COHERANT SENTENCE.

1)Why do you need a new account?
2)Insulting the board probably isn't the best way to get anyone to help you.
3)Learn to spell!

Why not go one step further, and have a seperate thread for each episode's commentary?

I mean it is just unorganized to have 3 posts where you got to go throught 100 posts just about the count down to the DVD.

Is skipping to the last page of the thread too simple for you?  Or maybe using some of the half dozen commentary threads that already exist?

Becuase I'm sure there's about three PEELers who by now still haven't seen Season 3 or listened to the DVD commentaries.

Just browsing another forum (AoD.com) and they have this feature on the threads with multiple posts which is basically a link/switch called "show all" which shows the complete thread without so don't have to go through loadsa pages (which I like to do in case I start repeating info).
So is there any chance of this happening, abit pointless I know but god damn it, I like it!Its a good little feature.  smile

I think that'd be a strain on PEEL. Currently PEEL has been hacked away at and improved to probably its limit. The favourites feature was removed because of too much strain. I think that would be too much to handle.

Wow, the right usage of the apostrophe is one of the first things you learn in English classes at German schools.
But seeing that even English people have problems with it, makes me feel a lot better now.   smile

I have a question I don't know where else to ask: When I see a poll, why at the top does it say "PEE Poll", instead of "PEEL Poll".   Sorry if the question has been answered already, I was just wondering.  tongue

I PEEL means Planet Express Employee Lounge, that means PEE means Planet Express Employee, right.  PEE Poll=Planet Express Employee Poll.

That, and Peel stands for "planet express employee lounge." "planet express employee poll" sounds better than "planet express employee lounge poll," eh?   wink

I agree, but most people say "PEEL" than actually saying "Planet Express Employee Lounge" when speaking outloud.  So, if you say "PEEL Poll" aloud, it sounds better than "PEE Poll".   tongue

Back in the good old days when I still had some meaningless pull around here. :fake sigh:

Actually though, he only called the polls that to get me to shut up about the domain being www.peelounge.com.  Anyone remember the days before we had www.peelified.com?

It's to do with hotlinking - it's suppossed to stop other sites from using PEEL / CGEF images, and therefore using bandwidth.

If you visit the Internet Archive for PEEL you'll see much the same. I don't know why it happened to you, but it's not much to worry about.

Would it be worth having a thread/room for n00bs to welcome themselves rather then create individual threads every time? 
Just a thought as it might stem the flow of FAQ and 'Hello' posts.

The problem is that it would probably become useless because a large proportion of newbs wouldn't look for it.

And could I just point out that there is a difference between a n00b and a newb....

40.

I believe the settings allow either 40 or 25, though I've seen one board with 35 posts to a page, just to be difficult...

The boards with 10 posts to page blow hard.

I think there needs to be more seperate sections within the offtopic section. at the moment everything is either futurama-related, TV/movies-related, or everything else.

i think there should be a section for gaming, at least. 1 single thread within offtopic isn't enough. and there shoud be other sections, but i cant think of what right now.
