    I think the people that don't like the off topic chatter are in the minority...and while it was a good idea to try and hide that chatter, I think a lot of us have realized that it makes the thread less enjoyable to the end-user (those of us in the majority). It's much harder to scroll/read (especially on the mobile app)...if you're looking for important info...then look for the posts with a lot of thanks. Any chance we can go back to the lounge format for the last week Phases?

    And of course, I respect what ever decision you make, I just thought it was worth asking...

    This offers a docking station for multiple uses. Instead of fishing for my MicroUSB cable that is constantly falling behind my desktop - I can simply set the phone into the dock and use it to charge+transfer files+hook up to external speakers for music streaming+*theoretically* output video.

    It's more of an 'ease of use' device than a necessary component.

    I'm guessing the big jump from 3.0 to 4.0 is that is intended for phones now as well. I'd expect JellyBean to be out at the Google Conference in June, with the next OS upgrade after that around December next year. Google has traditionally been 6 month upgrades +/- a month or two.

    I think we're just trying for balance on the hide thing.

    Appreciate everyone cooperating, but if it's cumbersome, best to let Phases know by posting here -

    Suggestion Box & Feedback - Android Forums

    We've gotten complaints now in both directions on this one, and the boss is looking at a lot of threads and a lot of forums (we have 1000 forums on this site). But he does take the time to consider suggestions, always.

    So - whichever side you're on in the hide/show thing, please open a discussion there.

    Member feedback counts! :)

    Thank you!

    does anyone know if there is a way to streamline my apps in terms of my multiple google accounts? I have them all on the same phone, but there are a few apps here and there that are on one account but not the others. I can tell this when the notifications for updates pop up. it says XXX1@gmail has 3 updates and then theres XXX@@gmail had 12 or whatever. I'm trying to slowly change my primary account back over to an older one (got married, then divorced = got a new email, then trying to switch it back). It's hard enough trying to move my whole organization over to the old email, I'm hoping it doesn't have to be as complicated for my apps.

    did this make sense? lol I know it's weird.

    Not to return to the Hulk thing but he has also picked up the hammer, not because he was chosen but because he was so angry he was strong enough to do so. He then proceeded to hit Thor with it.

    Wonder Woman also picked it up in the Marvel DC cross over.

    True. In fact, I just sold that issue. JLA/Avengers was a great series. If Thor lacks the hammer for 60 seconds, he reverts. However, whoever is still holding it, if anyone, doesn't automatically gain his power. It'd be a trip if one day we ever saw the Hulk with Asgardian power. :) Then again, come to think of it, that just happened with the power he briefly had from Odin's brother in Fear Itself...

    At a glance I would have to say no, I have the same issue. Of course I have made no real strides in fixing the issue.

    Switching everything the first time was easy. Ugh. It's switching back that has become so complicated! I'll explore and let you know if I figure anything out then :)

    That would be nice if it did all that. Maybe someone that has this can do a write up for us.

    That made me lol.

    If I was able to magically transport myself into the Marvel universe, I think I'd just shoot Banner while he's sleeping. The Hulk is such a tool.

    and if we all want to start a thread within a thread about the possibility of a movie based on 24, I can be the guy with a familial inside source! My cousin composed all the music for the show (even won an Emmy for it)!

    I sent Phases a PM yesterday when this was implemented about how this detracts from the environment here, and he was Very receptive of my message. If you truly feel that a change is for the better, you should PM him.

    I only have one suggestion. Abuse of the hide tags is subject to slapping. (You know who you are ;))

    Instead of putting all OT conversations in the hide tags, would it be possible to create an OT tag? You could then have a user setting to either hide or show all OT posts such that you could make both sides happy (in theory).

    In other news I think the forums are becoming unstable again :(

    I got a "database error" a couple minutes ago, and now it keeps telling me there's a "next" page when there really isn't...
