    Join the club. I don't post here anymore and I won't until it's free to post again. To much racism, trolling, and general faggotry to make this place worth paying for.

    This might be a stupid question but I can't figure out how to change my avatar. I'm a subscriber and have looked through all the FAQs (unless I missed one). I've gone to the settings page and to the change avatar section and this is all it gives me: [​IMG]

    Damn, you're right. I meant to get full access but it appears I did not do that. Thanks for the help!

    When a URL is included in a post, when that link is clicked, it goes to some sort of go.offtopic.com redirector thing rather than directly to the link itself.

    Anyway, the site "go.offtopic.com" cannot be found.... 404 error.

    Get rid of this shit

    URL my Amazon link got pointed to:
    Code:
    http://go.offtopic.com/?id=22494X809912&site=offtopic.com&xs=1&isjs=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHaynes-Manuals-92079-Toyota-4runner%2Fdp%2FB001QUBYZI%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1391301569%26sr%3D8-2&xguid=3f00ed64271d5952436b1d150a7f4097&xcreo=0&sref=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.offtopic.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D5245784%26page%3D3&pref=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.offtopic.com%2Fforumdisplay.php%3Ff%3D11&xtz=360

    Why is OT so slow?

    f4.offtopic.com generated this page in 7.01 seconds with 11 queries.

    used to be less than one second.

    It HAS been going down a lot. Don't really notice it on other sites (Don't know what they use).
