@WhiskeyLive is now @GiantBombLive due to the CBSi acquisition. It will only tweet Giant Bomb live shows now. I'll probably setup a seperate Tested account for their live streams once they get their API working again.
For people who don't know what I'm talking about, @GiantBombLive is a twitter bot that auto tweets out when the chat goes online and again once the stream goes live. You can follow it and get it to tweet straight to your phone via text messages. This should prevent you from ever missing a show becuase you didn't know about it.
On other things, I've built a couple new scripts for people who use Chrome and FireFox. ( You'll need Greasemonkey if your using FireFox )
What it does is if there are more than 5 nested quotes it will hide the rest of them and put a link where you can choose to show/hide said quotes. I also removed the fading effect and some of the padding used in quoting. This should make reading these things much easier.
Game Board Tool Tips
A few days ago I saw a thread on a game I've never heard of before. Instinctively, I clicked on the game's name and was kinda annoyed that it just takes you to the boards for that specific game. I needed to than click on "Overview" in the left menu to see the game's general information. I've done this before many times and it's too many clicks for my liking. So, I made a script that just changes the links to the main wiki page of instead of it's forum. After a bit, I thought to myself "Why should I even need to click a link?". So I built a tool tip that once you mouse of the board link under the thread it will display the game's boxart, release date and description using GB's API. It's kinda overkill, though it was fun to do.

If you have any other suggestions on small ways to improve the site. Let me know, I'll see if I can do something about it.
