    Looks familiar, but still have to explore...:D

    Btw. is there something else than junior/senior menber? Think we could use a few more like marbleshooter, rubberpro (just thoughts)

    Please, where is address for RSS source?
    I read this forum through RSS reader every morning which is much more convenient than browsing the site.
    Is it possible to manage RSS please?

    Great, thanks. Now I don't know if I was blind or you enabled the feature :D

    Btw. (bug report) looking at someone's profile doesn't work - see a post by someone, click on nick name (opens a little menu) and then after "View public profile" I get HTTP 500 error code.

    It's been neat to watch it change as the day goes on. It started with some rough edges, and I got a bit worried for the brief peroid when there were a lot of advertisements, but now it looks sharp and clean. Good job Jörg, Austin, and any other crew that I don't yet know.

    hey,
    i think the movement was handled not very good.
    the old forum was blocked and linked to a new page that has almost the exact same name then the other big slingshotforum...
    the name who blocked all the thread also sounded suspicious to me so i was under the impression the old forum was hacked.

    it should have been jörg who pronounced that...and i a different thread please with some TIME to move.

    now i found out this is the new site and i wasn´t abled to log in. the forum says my username or my password is incorrect...when i try to recieve a new password it says my emailadress is unknown....but i tripple checked everything!

    i´m not upset, that problems occur, that can always happen, what pisses me of a bit is the fact that due to a radical closing i have noone to talk to, i was foced to create a new mailadress (to not block the one i want to use here) and a new account...so now it would be very nice if an admin contacts me to clear that situation.

    Generally saying I like the new forum, especially the upload of pictures except for that they are all just listed at the bottom, and you cant write between them to anotate them. Otherwise the only set back is that on some browsers the pictures dont show up, and they cant be viewed.

    But generally good move. :)

    I had to create a new username it wouldn't let me log into my old one or retrieve my password for my old one even tho I knew what my password was. Hopefully that doesn't screw up my chances on the drawing :( , not gonna reenter with this name that would be like cheating.

    Wasn't able to log on, same as Ant(whom ever you formerly are know as :D), and the small panic attack and liquefaction of the contents of my lower intestines. I contacted admin. and they sorted me out just fine.
    I haven't looked through the site more than coming here, but it looks pretty similar to the old one, at least enough that it hasn't triggered a brain fart like I was worried about! ........I do still hate change though!!;)
    FYI: The "search" box, in the top left of the window is cutoff, horizontally.
    Would still like to see more "smiley" icons. Better selection allows for more expression. They are the stand-in for facial expressions in messaging. They can help avoid misinterpretation of comments.
    Don't see the "new posts since your last visit" button?? We have to have that!!!!!!!! It makes having a quick look SO much better!!!!!!
    Thanks for the help and congrats to all!!!

    EDIT: (few minutes later.......) Is the "Today's Posts" button at the top the same as the "new posts since..." button I mentioned above???? Does it include all posts since my last visit, as in all posts I haven't read from multiple days prior, other than just "today"?
    Thanks in advance for clarification!!!

    The move was non-standard. It was from a free forum to now an independent host. We were not able to cleanly get the data so we had to improvise with what limited options we had to work with.

    If you send a PM to Jörg or myself with your old username/e-mail or use the Contact form we can fix your accounts.

    We could not redirect the old forum here because the options are very, very limited.
