Everyone who has signed up should have just received a test text alert. Looks like it's working fine.
Got it. Thanks, RT!
You already text me enough. Just leave me alone!

drafted out of bank or charged to credit card?
Is this your card info?!?!?!?!?!?!, yeesssssss!!!!!...... Just kidding
Just learned that there are plans to add the ability to set specific times you want to receive alerts in your user options.
In other words, if you're doing something important or if you're catching some shut-eye, you won't be bothered with a text alert until it's a more convenient time for you.

Or people could turn their phone on silent...
People complain about anything and everything lol
True. Dude, how do I get the moving heads? They're hilarious.
You just have to be a natural born badass, like myself.
But for real...
It's just [ shrug ] with no spaces. I go to the full site on my phone if I can't remember the code for the emoticons.
I saw over the weekend you passed me on post count. Congrats!!! You are now the top poster outside of RT and OK.
You are a busy man.

or I just don't have a life outside of work. Ozark, Missouri is boring. I miss Fay.
I hear you 88.
Nobody complained that I'm aware of. It's just a nice feature we're planning to add.
I didn't think people on this site complained... Maybe on other team sites? Who knows? Maybe nobody.
Make your picks... And don't copy mine again like you did last week.
Picks are in. If you copy mine, you may be in trouble. I'm calling for some crazy upsets. This must be how Auburn feels trying to catch up to Alabama.
I've missed two weeks and have worked my way up to 5th place. I desrve a prize.
