Just got back from a week at the Region 9 rally and the change really knocked my eyes out.

On balance, I like it although I'm going to have to take a while to get used to it.

There are many charming changes in the site that make info buzz around much more quickly. that is a GOOD thing. you need to investigate the hyperlinks & dropdown menus to see what the options are. You can customize & search & view & spy and STILL post all those amazing breakthroughs that you no doubt share with the forum to increase the storehouse of knowledge.

If you have specific questions to answer to replace the dire prediction and sentence-fragment sputter that you've contributed so far, please speak up. operators are on call.

I ditto Steps comments....I was shocked how fast some suggestions for changes came about. Now that I've been on it for a day, it's becoming more and more familiar.

I should be up to 5000 posts by next month!

God I need a life!

post originator

I was starting to like the "post originator" feature because it emphasized the thread rather than the individual reply. Last night (with "post originator") I noticed that topics stayed visible longer, rather than being lost in a flurry of individual posts. I know I miss valuable info on threads that I never see when I'm not logged on for a perid of time. This may be the case more often as more people join and post. Besides, I found it easy enough to check the recent post with the new mouseover feature.

Don't want to drive Andy crazy by suggesting he change it again after already putting it back the way it was...
But what the heck: Andy, can you change it back to show post originator?

Post originator, pre-post originator, or post-pre-post originator, however you like it, it's a great forum!

Talking an so we continue to learn

I am just greatful that Andy didn't take all the harping and whining to heart and pull the plug on this joyride! I am still playing with all the new features...I was still playing with the features on the old board If you guys would quit suggesting changes I might actually be able to get a chance to learn how to use this one.

But anyway! I am just thankful that Andy is providing us with this board and the massive amount of bandwidth and server space it must consume.
If he wants to make the background purple and green it is his board and he can do what he wants. Just be glad you have a board to come to!

**Take a Vote on it**


Since so many people, have so many different ideas, how about taking the mainstream ideas and letting us vote on them. You could create a poll on each of the main questions. At least it would be the democratic way and if the majority had voted on it then no one else would have a gripe!

Just a suggestion, whatever you do is fine with me; it's your web site!

I just appreciate having this site to browse around on.

I'm not too bright... so I was a little confused with the new interface, but with input, I see lots of the old convenience features reappearing. The more I use it, the more logical the placement of things seem, and the better I like it!

I miss the buttons at the bottom of each post...

Very Subtle

I like the new forum so far. Lots to explore and learn.

Note that the four advertising links seem to be tied into the thread. Is that via keyword? Ah, by Google! The "We Must Never Forget..." thread has Hitler's Secret DVD, Russian Flasks, and Cold War Research on my last view. Will they change randomly or as the topic evolves?

I have to say that I was a little taken aback by the new layout. But as stated by many members, change takes getting use to. I'm glad to see the rivets back, they seem to be part of the Airstream lifestyle. I will just keep reading, there never seems to be a shortage of it around here.
