    I always add a few things to the board over Christmas. They are:

    1) Original posters in threads have an orange background around their avatar, which remains that color throughout the thread to let people know they are the OP.

    2) Threads that hit 50 posts automatically get the "hot flame" icon in front of the thread title on the list of threads. I can also manually add icons to various threads, like the "fist" icon I put on the Joe Mixon thread.

    3) You can do random giphy's, both on the board and in the chat room. What you do is type /giphy, with a word just after that to show what you want to see. So putting in "/ giphy lol" (without the space before giphy) would show something like this:
    lol

    You can't choose the giphy, it's just random.

    Discuss.

            I don't deserve this.

                  I assume you're just trying to be funny. Remove the space, "/giphy".

                  LOL. I was just messing around. However, the double posts are causing me consternation. When I hit "Post Reply" the progress bar activates and then does nothing. May be my Interwebz connection.

                  I'm actually on the wagon right now. Doing an 8 week fitness, chiropractic, and diet program. I'm three weeks into it.
