I'm gonna be blunt.
I don't like it.
It makes the profile pages look messy and somewhat disorganized. Having the exact dates (and who cares if they're four hours off?) added a sense of professionalism to the pages. The broad generalization of "2 weeks," "a month," or whatever makes it...
I have a Genius Pensketch 6x8. It's a cheap one, but I've never had any problems or anything with it. I got it for $80 off Woot.com, but I know you can get them online for about the same price.

Uhm.... maybe I'm wrong, but isn't that kind of the purpose of the shoutbox? If you want to have a real conversation with someone, that's what notes are for. There's even a maximum character limit to prevent people from creating huge shouts, which in turn makes it difficult to say much else...
I'm not gonna lie... I'm in a bit of a tight spot right now, and things aren't really looking great. I'm doing digital ink commissions for $25 each. Almost any subject, any rating, and any amount of characters.
Go ahead and post your info here.
