Craig,
The forum came out great! Much easier on the eyes and the pic feature is improved too! Glad I was able to see it from it's beginning to maturity..

:)

Glad you like it - more goodies to come.
I will get the two letter search working soon (PE LP VC, etc.)
Will also get the speed increased as we go! Lots of possibilities.

Is there a reason I am a "hearth forum member and not the inferno I was before?

It's going to take me a long time to figure out the titles, trophies, ranks, etc.
I think the post count and the member since says most of it....for now.

Not a big deal I really like the new look! Seems faster and more intuitive too.. Great job!

That's not multi-quotes.
I like just scrolling down to post. Putting multiple quotes in a reply is easy too, no cut-and-paste.

Lovin' it so far. Thanks, Craig! :cool:
I don't know how it works - it's not yet automatic. I used the quotes thing in the menu to do the above.
This is multi-quotes and I had to copy/paste to do it.

What ya do is this:

You hit "reply" in the first one you want to quote. This pastes the first one in your post you are creating. Then scroll up to the next one you want to quote and hit reply in that one. And on and on and on.

Ja, titles are just confusing to some who think it is the person's handle. How often was a reply addressed to Fire God on the old board?

Member Since and Message Count convey all that is needed. On boards that let me override the title, I put in my own byline instead.

The mods though should have a title so that can carry some authority. After all, we can't let them carry guns.

I like how it looks too. By the way my old Favorites link to the Boiler Room takes me to a message saying the Forums are still down. Someone might want to put a redirect message in somehow.

Can you post that link to me here or my PM?
All links should redirect here...

Sorry Craig, I already deleted it. It had to be the old address of the Boiler Room. The link always took me directly to the page you go to if you click "Boiler Room" on the page listing all the available Forums.

Any bookmark that points to a forum page below the old top level forums is going to return that message. Time for a new bookmark. There would have to be a re-director coded for every directory and every post in the old forum for that to not happen.

That would probably call for at least tripling the membership fees.
