  • Forum Upgrade - so what do you think so far

    Opinions on the upgrade? Anything we should change that I have missed. I think I like the new toys so far. Some cool new functionality, especially the new social stuff.

    I'm old fashioned and like to follow the K I S S rule. Let's not get too fancy and make it hard for new members.

      I just timed out on the Forum for the last 10-minutes. Does that have anything to do with the upgrade?

              ok.. all I ma missing is the profession in the upper right. I will work on getting that one back up there. Didnt even notice.

              Thats what this is all about. Getting everything back up to snuff along with all the new bells and whistles not distracting but actually adding to the experience.

                I like seeing the blog entries, personally. I think, though, that the "thanks" thing is not as useful as the profession entry that used to be there. While anyone can thank anyone else, a professional responding to a question is more what we're about here. Like Dirtyhands points out, I'd rather see the person's professional qualifications than how many times others clicked the Thanks button for the guy.

                EDIT: Thanks Josh...you were busy fixin while I was busy complainin!!!

                That being said, we should all go thank Niki for another great post!!!

                I'm still poking about figuring out the rest of the new stuff. The gallery seems to have changed, I think?

                Josh, thank you for all you do for us. You're doing a great job of leading this forum.

                I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                  Yes where is the profession listing Josh, I`m just funny that way I like to know who I am talking to, a plumber or a joe bloggs.

                          By God that was fast Josh, no sooner had I finished my comment than you had the proffessional listing up and running and in colour, can you walk on water.?

                              I can't figure out how to create a private message, or to create friends. The only part of your change that I don't like is, the showing of thanks, its dumb. Get rid of the thanks under our names....

                              But I do like the thanks in the threads, where you can put in your hidden message sort of speak.
