I agree. Let's wait a day or two to have a chance to check this one out completely. Good job so far.

This forum is growing on me, Good thing to do in the middle of a sleepless night, Just start clicking on everything your cursor can find and see what it does. My favorite forum format is the one on (Garden Web) It is the easiest to use and post on and they must have a hundred different forums ranging from Tractors, Cars, Farming, & everything in between including your marriage/lovelife and even how to kill your pet fly. :idea:

Dennis: This format is very popular, so it must be liked by most people. It will grow on everyone in a few days. My only personal comment is that the yellow background makes it difficult for me to read. I just opened this up and maybe there are personal color preferences that I have not found. If not, I would suggest different colors. I appreciate your efforts to keep this site up to date and always operational.

thanks, yd

Yes, there are options for other color formats to meet the individuals needs. If everyone wants to stay with this format, I can add other options that each individual can choose their preference.

Thanks for all your support folks!

What else is available?

Dennis,

This format is OK, but what other formats are there? I'm blessed with fast computers and faster connections, so what might work great for me may bog others down.

The old format with the threads work really well for me, but I like the way the message and replies are laid out here. Let's give it a week and see how it grows on us.

I'm in!!

I'll try the new style forum, but I like the look of the old board. Thanks, Dennis. 8)

Looks like progress to me. I see this format when researching computer error messages and the like.

New Board

It's a shame the 'Ol Board couldn't be fixed. I thought it worked well. Progress is OK but 'Ol things are nice too. Like my '51 Cub! :roll:

I agree, use it for several days before you decide. I like the feature that I can see all replys just by scrolling down the page, not going into each one and back.

Like the board (Except for the yellow)
Don't like having to register -- Too many durn passwords to remember and too much unwanted e-mail already. What's the point?

Go to the profile settings and you can turn most of the notifcations off. Also, if you do not logout, you will not be required to login each time.

Progress is always an adjustment.
Let's adjust.
Keep up the good (GREAT) work that you are doing.
Thanks!

I agree, like Bigdog says, the old and familiar is always more comfortable but I've just logged on for about 10 mins and can see the potential with this new format. Lets give it a few days and then decide.
