All of our web site software has been upgraded except the Arcade. I hope to have it upgraded soon (hopefully that will fix some of the trouble we've had with it).

Although I've tested and retested the upgraded software, there's always a chance that I missed something. If you notice something that isn't working properly, please let me know about it in this thread.

I've also redesigned the look of our site. If you don't see the new design, clear your cache and refresh your browser. Here are a few changes that you might want to know about:

-The links for our "FAQ" and "Calendar" have been moved to the bottom navigation bar.

- The "Favorite Smilies" box, when posting, has been reduced to one column containing a maximum of eight smilies.

- I've removed the "Recent Posts Bar" from the Post New Thread and Reply To Thread pages.

http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/images/buttons/firstnew.gif = Will take you to the first unread post (by you) in the thread.
http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/images/buttons/lastpost.gif = Will take you to the last post in the thread.
http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/images/buttons/collapse_tcat.gif = Will collapse the window that contains it.
http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/images/buttons/collapse_tcat_collapsed.gif = Will expand the window that contains it.


I'm still tweaking a few things here and there, but I can do that without taking us offline again.

I hope the changes are welcome, as always, your suggestions are. :)

I was going to start a new thread, but I thought that maybe this was a better place to say this...

but..

The new look is freakin' cool! :D

Thanks Kirkus for all the hard work you do for this site; I don't think that's stressed enough. :grouphug::notworthy:

This rocks. And I think Kimmie is the second player from the left in our new banner. And no one needs to tell me otherwise, I prefer to live in my personal distorted bliss.

I'm like 99% sure that's Kim.

On the right side I can make out Roger holding the 2006 AO trophy, and I'm thinking that might be Tati to the right of him, but the legs look too skinny.

Out of the five players up there, only two are "name" professionals. The other three are just recreational players.

I see a guessing game on the way. :D

LOL. So we got Kim and Roger and those other three are just posers. :D

Actually, one of your guesses is incorrect (sorry Moose :( ).

At first I thought the man in the middle holding the trophy was Sampras. Whether it is Pete or Roger, we can agree that the trophy is not from Roland Garros.

The guy serving on the left is probably the other pro. No idea who it could be.

I also want to know who is serving for 1-ALL in the third. 3 hours is a whole lot for about two sets!

That's not Kim!?

The other woman could be Sequera, if she had on those sunglasses.

This is going to torture me, Kirkus! :D

Reminds me of that Nadal/Mathieu RG match from last year. :p

The one I thought was Kim? The hair could definitely be Monica, but it would have to be an awkward shot for her not to have both hands on the racquet.

Is the player on the far right end Andy Roddick, shot from behind?

Jay

The woman on the left looks like, to me, Svetlana Kuznetsova..

and the chick on the right looks like Maria Kirilenko....but since the one holding the trophy is roger, I'm thinking the one on the left is a pro...Sveta.

Moose

I thought it was Kim because of the V-Neck top and the ponytail flailing from behind.

Jay

Yeah, but the face structure is more like Sveta's

Maybe we're all wrong and it's Magui Serna.

It sure would bring it all full circle.

Nevermind my original question.

It looks like Andy's service motion on the left end.

I don't think he is bulky enough.

I was even prepared to give a timeline! I was thinking Kim with the bun and the red Fila v-neck top and skirt, 2003 USO. :rolleyes:

It definitely looks like a Fila top, JJ. Which means it could be Sveta. or J-Cap :rolleyes:

Especially with the first two sets going 36 62 - it's not like it went to a tiebreak. Those are relatively short sets.


It would have to be a slow player, with perhaps some injury time out(s).

MY guess...... Mary Pierce was on one side of the net.

read my previous posts.

If It's Sveta, I called it. ;)

They could've been lonnnnng grueling sets. :D

No. That would've been a close up. :D

I wish I'd thought about this more before doing it, I would've put all pros up there to drive everyone nuts. :dizzy: :D

BTW, one of you was close on who the second pro is.

It's been discovered that our fancy schmancy zoomy thumbnail image thingy isn't working. I'll be getting that fixed today.

Not before the upgrade.

how would it get updated then? someone would have to go and manually update it?

odd. I remember it updating when no staff was online...or maybe I'm imagining things.

I meant if a new post was made, it will update itself (for you, TAT member) without you reloading the page.
