Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

I should have thought of that. If a moderator happens by, would you be so kind as to change "trout" to "pie"?

Sorry, there was only so many options available.

I also wanted to put "a bag of peanuts" and "Richard Nixon" as options.

The TWU given their… how shall I say, demonic reputation, run opposite to some of the more standard biblical symbols, and as we all know, the fish is representative of Christ.

Ergo: The screaming hordes will be waving Trouts, and will also have had copious quantities of sacramental wine to fortify themselves… the TWU won’t know what hit them… except for the smell, and oh yes, the fish too.

Can't you just see them charging up to the Lane St. office. Bruce and the execs come out to calm them down, then all the irrate picketers break into the "fish slapping dance". :lol:

How long before they borrow ask the CBC if they can borrow the Chicken Cannon?

Blasts of compressed air launching trout up and over the picket lines at the Lane St. office.

I'm guessing they'd just use one of their members as a battering ram.....when that one wore out, they'd pick another one.....and of course, being a Union, they'd have to use Juniority to pick the "volunteers" for battering ram. :twisted:

And THEN they'd blame the people who built the building for causing the deaths of so many TWU members and so they'd picket the builders....and so on and so on and so on.
