    </div>The GFX gallery is on the drop down menu under SportTwo. It is named Graphics Central at the moment</p>

    All of the off topic forums are here, they are in SportsTwo General Discussion. While we love sports here, we do talk about plenty of other topics.</p>

    </p>

    As far as skins and banners, this site is made from scratch software, so there are infinite ways to customize and expand it. We are far from done in that process and definitely look forward to your suggestions. Feedback, suggestions and collaboration are the foundation of SportsTwo</p>

    There is no reason to say goodbye to BBW as it is the people that made BBW and we hope to see everyone here as part of our community.</p>

    I can't stress enough that feedback and suggestions are very welcome here.</p>

    As you've obviously seen if you're reading this, bballworld.us has been purchased by SportsTwo, and http://bballworld.us now points to the NBA forums here. If you didn't notice it before, there is a message linked at the top for you guys explaining what's going on. </p>

    To reiterate, your user names, posts, PMs and graphics, all the good stuff you've created there are here <u>They aren't lost forever!</u> Player Comparisons are in the Player Comparison Forum. Raptors posts are in the Raptors forum, Graphics posts are in the Graphics Central forums. Your games are in the games forums. And so forth. You can navigate almost anywhere on SportsTwo quickly via the drop down menus at the top of the page.</p>

    Welcome aboard. We understand this is a huge and sudden change for you guys, and not everything will seem positive. On the things you don't like, give us a chance to fix them. Take a look around, and we think you'll find things you do like. We have a sportsbook simulation, trivia game, high quality news feeds and game threads, and stats, quick boards and good discussions among other things. An NBA trade checker and a comprehensive historical stats section are in the works, as well as fantasy football and a host of football related stats. Take a look around and we hope you like what you see.</p>

    And introduce yourselves and let us know who you are, what you like and what you don't like. Some of us you may know already, as most of the staff here at S2 have been posting on helping to run sports boards for a long time. Our goal here is to create a great community that everyone can enjoy. </p>

    I don't know what Tony did and didn't do, but I do know that we, the guys who've worked on S2 have literally built this place from nothing and have worked countless hours to do it. Denny Crane is the main programmer here and he pulled an all nighter moving posts and setting things up for the transfer over here.</p>

    We've all worked very hard on S2 to make it happen, and I personally feel like we've only got it to be about 10% of what it will be when we're really rolling.</p>

    </p>

    Point is, I know another move is a hastle, but we have and will continue to work <u>our</u> asses off to make this a good place for you guys. </p>

    All we can ask is you give us a chance.</p>

    I have 40K posts on another basketball site. I'm motivated to make this site and make it rock. Petey has over 50K posts on that other site. MikeDC similar. And so on. We're not new to this, tho sportstwo is itself quite new. It's about 8 weeks old, and totally custom and written from scratch.</p>

    If you give this a chance, I think you'll see the potential. Look at the MLB forums. Game threads for every game. Stats for the teams. Standings. Schedules. Rosters. All that stuff, and it's tight with the news and numbers. It's not NBA season yet, but all that stuff will be there - and more. You'll find we're willing to work hard to make you guys happy. We can leverage all this stuff together (the code, the posts, the news, the data in the news). </p>

    I think this site just got infinitely more attractive because every one of your posts and avatars and images in your signatures rock, and they're all here.</p>

    FWIW</p>

    </p>

    I just can't stand the set up - everything is just different. Can't find my way to the sim league, site seems to be really slow. I just don't know why Tony or Combs would do something like this...
