Exclamation Welcome to the new forums

Lots of new stuff, hopefully most of it works

Not completely setup yet, moderators are not assigned and such. A lot of things just don't migrate properly or at all. PM's did though


The old forums will remain open for posting in the test area so if people need to leave a message there because they can't get in here they can.

Still a lot of housekeeping to do, but thought we would get it up and running and work the kinks out and hope you all don't mind if a little remodeling work continues.

Oop, just noticed the smilies are broken.

I will start a sticky topic so people can add observations about things gone amiss. Please sound off with any opinions, likes and dislikes. Consider it a WIP <-- that's the thumbs-up smiley.

Re: Welcome to the new forums

Another couple of .. ahem... features

Avatars did not migrate, so people have the fun of adding those to there profiles if they like (let me know if you need help)

Birthdays did not migrate, so everyone's birthday is set to Jan 1st. Remember to update that in your profile while you are there (Set it to whatever you like, it isn't used for much more than displaying your age.)

Re: Welcome to the new forums

Looks and feels great Reese!

To edit your profile, it is the first tab (User CP) in the tool bar at the top of the screen.

Editing your profile picture and avatar picture are 2 seperate functions and allows you the option to upload 2 different images for members to view:

1) Editing your profile picture = is for viewing inside your profile only.
2) Editing your avatar = is for your viewing your pic associated with your your tag name when posting to threads. You may use the link of your avatar from the old site when adding it to your new site profile.

You can find this and additional general help in the FAQ tab (5th tab) in the tool bar.

Re: Welcome to the new forums

Great job on this!

I really like the new layout with the scrolling photo montage on the top of the page (and was quite honored to see some of my devil dogs in the mix. ).

Really excellent work! I enjoy seeing peoples work at the banner every time I click. Gives it a real refreshed atmosphere and even causes me to search for posts I might have missed! Hard work and dedication and thanks are in order to all those who donated and constructed the board. Brilliant!
