I've had a few requests for my profile theme so here it is!
First set your profile theme to "UrbanTek" then go "advance" and enter the complete text from the attached document. You should be all good to go. :)

Did you notice?
- Hall of Steel got a lovely makeover :D
- All of the department groups have been color coded. If its sub text is in color you know it belongs to a department. For example, all Castle Life groups are highlighted in blue.
- We've got business cards!!! If you are an…

2011 is already looking far better. Thank the heavens that December is done and gone. Things seem to be moving along nicely here at the Hearth. New features you guys should be looking forward to:
- Site-wide chat service!
- Translator (already here!) in the top right corner of the page.
- Group tabs- groups organized into tabs so you won't be searching through 100+ groups.
- New text edit buttons (already here!)
If you have questions about any of… Continue

Just staying above water for now.
This December has been up and down, but mostly down and Mercury Retro is living up to its potential. I lost a family member earlier this month rather suddenly and unexpectedly. On the other hand, we now have family home for the holidays. Its bittersweet and the house is busy. I am not in a financial position to do Christmas shopping for anyone. I did pick up a box of Holiday cards so I think almost everyone is covered in that department.

Well, I'm happy to be back from my October travels and all caught up! Glad to see the site is buzzing with activity!
Tons of updates have been going on. If you haven't already noticed, the profile questions have been updated as well. Some of you may need to go back and revise your answers accordingly.
There have been talks about a monthly newsletter which I am very excited about. I think it will be an awesome addition for those that don't appreciate daily site… Continue

Yes, its like the Mary Poppins' Bag of never-ending projects.
Our Thursday night meeting was relatively small but still very productive. I have a page of notes on improvements and expectations.
In a nutshell
-Get the inventory up to speed.
-Get our artisans in a row.
-Invite and make welcome.
The Facebook fanpage is in slightly better standing though the Facebook staff could stand to communicate more. If you are a facebook user, please stop in and say hi! I am very… Continue

Yes, progress has been made and can be seen! I believe I am well on my way to conquering the beast we lovingly refer to as The Castle Life Department. I've also taken the reigns of the Facebook fanpage. I hope to see you all there as well!
Once Mercury relieves my computer I will be tackling graphics, logos and all that fun stuff. I have been learning CSS and I even joined a ning group all about...CSS! I have been ninja-ing around, tweeking here and there for the sake of legibility.

Last night's meeting was extemely productive. Thank you so much to everyone who came out! We have some awesome new admins on board, sharing in the work load and making a ton of site improvements. I know the Department profiles are growing by leaps and bounds! Hug your admins and send them thoughts of hot coffee...
All Departments should now be activate on Twitter. If you are a twitter addict, yourself, please put in a good word about your hearth site.

I sat in on my first admin meeting last night and there are some great changes in-store for TWTW! I'll be busy with the house keeping over in the Castle Life department. Show some love to your administrators! They've all been working very hard to bring more order and user-friendliness to the site. Keep an eye out for featured products from your favorite departments on Twitter! If you really want to support the work we are doing, please stop by the front page and vote for the site in the… Continue
