    Default Please shorten the Forum Names

    Can we (Alpha) shorten the Forum names. They are so long that they double or triple word-wrap when looking, for instance, at New Posts. Something short like "V9 Platinum" & "V9 App Server", etc. It's all "Alpha Five" other the special forums just for previous versions. It is also very hard to distinguish a Desktop topic from an Application Server topic. Even though it is clearly spelled out, the words are lost in the multiple word wrap and long text.

    I never noticed before, you and I have the same logo. Except mine is missing the shoes and happy face.

    :D

    I had wondered about those little orange balls, you being from California and all. Australia imports Californian navels in our summer and this year you guys must have had a bumper crop 'cause we were still packaging them into May, almost to when our navel season starts. In a month or two you will be seeing our navels in your shops.
