    Now will this affect me or anyone else on the Xchange if we don't sign up?, will we still have access to the Xchange. The reason I'm asking is I just tried to register from work. It appears Zoints is on my company access denied list. I'm now hesitant to sign up from home and find out I'm blocked from the Xchange at work..... I'd have to start working all day and no one wants that

    No, definitely not.. It's just an added bonus that you don't have to participate in. I wonder why it's blocked at your job.. It's a brand new service.. Maybe all Social Networking sites are blocked?

    I don't get the point? It will show my online profile to who? And where am I supposed to link it to?

    Step 3 is missing, so if these are answered in Step 3, hop on the edit, would ya?

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?
    I don't know. I lost my psychic abilities when they stole my superhero powers.

    Oops! Step 3 added! I don't think it'll help, though - as it doesn't say much.. What this is, is an interesting new twist to Social Networking (like MySpace) through vBulletin message boards...

    Cool.. I think this stuff is very interesting - social networking and all. Let's see what we can make of it.. If you liked meeting new people on these forums, it's going to get much more interesting now.. People are already finding us that would not have normally found us before...

    Cool! Have you tried the drag and drop capability to customize your page? Consider this the Adult MySpace system...

    NO! I did not know that was a feature. I can't wait to try it out. Is David the owner of the site?

    OK, I made one. I need to get all the pretties set up and whatnot. Now, how do I get the little linky under my post count?

    Never mind, it did it for me. YES, I AM THAT STUPID, TYVM!!

    How did you find this place, Sal??? Totally cool! It'll take me six months to figure it all out, but I like it better than MySpace. Maybe I can get rid of MySpace now? It's been screwing up on me for days now.

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?

    That's a little bit of a story, actually. I'll get to that soon.. But, yes! This is going to be WAY better than MySpace.. Way more people - and way more professional.. I really think you'll be able to leave MySpace in a matter of time... I'm glad you're liking it so far!

    OK, everyone needs to try this!

    If you like MySpace, you'll love this. If you hate MySpace, you'll love this.
