OK... I think I fixed one of the major speed issues on the site. Let me know if you find it faster or not.
Last night Joel 'doodirock' Albert and I launched the newest 2old2play podcast, Still Got Game.
If anyone would like to try your hand at creating an intro, please feel free. There aren't a lot of requirements, except at some point it should say "2old2play presents Still Got Game".
OK... We've finally covered the entire backlog of new user signups after the WSJ article yesterday.
For those of you new to the site, feel free to post in the New In Town forum. It's a great jumping off point, and our members are always crawling that forum looking for other like-minded gamers. Also, I'd recommend checking out the Divisions or Gaming Genres forums to start finding your own niche...
If for some reason you don't see the game or genre you play, let us know and we'll make sure it's added. The less popular games usually end up in the "Genre" forums, while the hotbed of popular games are in the Divisions. With a slew of new people coming in, if we find games that used to be less popular now needing a separate forum, we'll do it up.
Last but not least, another great way to introduce yourself to our community is your site blog. At the top right you'll see a link labeled My Blog. New blog entries are always featured at the top of every page on the site.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Welcome to 2old2play!
With today's Wall Street Journal story there has been a nice influx of new 2old2play members. We are working as quickly as possible to approve new signups. Please bear with us...
OK... So now that the episode is out, we've announced our new podcast name is:
Gaming Under the Influence
What we're looking for is a new show intro to put at the beginning of each episode, as well as new artwork for iTunes and the homepage.
The intro should state somewhere, "2old2play presents, Gaming Under the Influence"
We'd love the artwork to include (somewhere) "Gaming Under the Influence" and "2old2play", the rest is up to your creativity.
The main artwork needs to be 200x200 and the homepage version 135x89. I'll put our old artwork below for reference.
Thanks again, and for those of you whose stuff we use, I'll dig up some sort of prize or something to give you.

Also, for those of you unfamiliar with the old show intro (how is this even possible), you can listen to it here:
There is an arrivals/departures thread to help with cab sharing/group transportation from the airport... It can be found here: http://www.2old2play.com/forum/talk-back/topic/2012-chicago-lan-airline-...
With special returning host doodirock, Codemonkey and I are recording episode 200 - that's fucking right - 200, this coming Monday. If you want to give us a little shout-out, comment or kudos to use in the episode, give us a call ASAP at (773) 527-2961. That's:
I have ported it over to V3... It will be available via the menus shortly... If you're desperate in the meantime, you can find it at http://2old2play.com/sitechat
I am attempting to have a read-only version of the old site up this morning... Keep your eyes here for more info...
Now trying to work around it...
