    This site is big enough to maybe make a difference.
    Wondering what you thought about adding the 'Amber Alert' MOD to like maybe the front page or one of the main pages.

    I ran a couple public forums with it on there and it only took up a little bit of space at the bottom. Yes, it streams and adds to the bandwidth, but it is quite minimal from what I experienced.

    You don't even have to respond to this post, just dropping a thought into your laps.

    It sounds like a great idea but I don't know the rules that pretain to it for sure. We had just found another little girl dead in Orange Park Fla. She went missing on monday.

    With all respect to you, I strongly disagree with your idea.

    This is a smoking meat (slash hobby) website that I come to to escape from the daily grind, the daily news, the rough and tumble "real world" we live in and relax with what is a hobby, pastime, and a WAY TO RELAX.

    We have enough "crawling alerts" "blinking alerts" and "alerts" in general in every real-life news, editorial, local-weather, or current event website as it is. I have stopped visiting them because I am tired of being overwhelmed with the incessant "urgency" of every situation; And I definitely include the politically-leaning websites that I agree with that I used to visit. Apparently everything is an emergency and the whole world is going down in flames.

    Well, maybe it is; the SMF has been my respite from all this for a while now.

    The addition to an "alert" band, crawler, indicator...whatever, that reminds me of the very stressors I seek a few minutes of respite from will drive me, and I am sure, others away from yet another good website.

    My opinion.
