Is there any news on the proposed site software update, the problems I incur include
1. Can't upload Avatars or Sigs on the .co.uk site
2. I can use the .com site for this but when I try to access the forums I get re-directed to the .co.uk site
3. I have best answer totals in the .co.uk site that are different to the .com site, i.e. not added together
4. Can't see badges etc on the .co.uk forums and can't access the .com forums
Does it directly deal with any of the problems I have listed?
That would not be the primary purpose of it if that's what you mean. This isn't a small update, it's a complete replacement of the existing software (thankfully). There's no way to predict whether those issues will still exist but if they do it will be for different reasons. Personally I'm hoping that the UK site vanishes altogether.
I can help you with problem #2 though. Check your PMs.
There's no saying for sure, but I'm with randomizer on the hopes that we can completely eliminate the UK variant of the site. There's scant difference between the two iterations, and no great need for the separation of sites. We'll see what the new update brings.
Don’t be ashamed to say “Merry Christmas.” I wear a button that says “Merry Christmas to Me.” When someone tells me “Happy Holidays,” I ask them what holiday they’re talking about and they say Christmas. Then I say, “Oh yeah, merry Christmas.” Christmas is Jesus Christ’s birthday. So have a happy, merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year
