How and why temporary?

But I have already saved it to my HDD anyway, just in case you mean what you say!

Sorry. I forgot about this!

It was just a collection of links I have as supporting a Web Development forum.

The FC meeting went well, and they are working on it. (Actually, they are doing a lot)

I will delete it later.

Well, I use it for testing things. I did delete it once, but restored it once I realized I may have continual use for it.

For some reason, it attracts responses. (I just added something to the guide on forum features, and was testing screenshots, in case anyone was wondering)

Perhaps, but you do not wish to flood the market. As with the diamond market, you must release few and market them as being rare and valuable. If the market goes down, buy back some of the stock at low prices and the price will go up again. Same with posts.

USA cards have that also. Three numbers on the back of the card. I noticed it changes when you get a new card (but the credit card number stays the same of course)

I don't get it: how do you post temporarily in a temporary thread?

You can move it to Cafe games if you want (opened). I never thought it would be popular and I only made it for screenshots for the Forum Guide. I need to update those shots soon, as all the icons changed and even some are from before the upgrade.

This thread has been moved around and deleted a lot. I originally made it in the Cafe I think.
