Re: 2021 All Star Game and Draft Moved from Atlanta

So, Dan, who did you used to be on the most recent UPPMB iteration?

Board Quirks

So, I was trying to reply to a PM and just couldn't see any response capability. Is PMing something you have to have a certain number of posts here before you can do?
