So whats going on. Will the old Forum go away. Will we be able to access the archives? Are Pirate and I still administrators/moderators?

And how do you move this (http://www.houseboatmagazine.com/fusetalk/forum/i/authorsicons/LotusEater6.jpg) avatar to the new forum? It's not obvious enough for me.

I uploaded my avatar. Let's see if it works.

07-09-2012, 02:04 PM
Apparently not.

Seeing what happens when I post

I was able to load my avatar, but the button which allows the avatar to be shown will not turn "ungreen". Therefore, no way to let avatars to be seen, this is an administrator task to change.

is my avatar working?

The Avatar problem I am checking with the IT guy. You will still be able to access the old forum but you just won't be able to post anything new to it. This will help all the problems that people have been having with the old forum.

I was unable to log in. The forum would not accept my password.
So, instead of TonyB it is now Tony B.
I just hope you guys remember who I was.

With only 2 posts, I'm the new guy so please be gentle with me.

No avatar luck for me, either.

Send me the error message you get and the url and I will forward it to my IT guy.

07-10-2012, 01:59 PM
i just get to like the other forum and now it will be gone

07-10-2012, 02:02 PM
Never could get it to work. I just re-registered with a new name.

The only problem for the members that I am aware of, is the WYSIWYG/HTML issue, which should have been addressed years ago. Did we have others?

I know that the old forum software is probably a PITA to 2 or 3 people in administration but it is smooth, warm, and fuzzy to 2794 members.

Really don't think the old forum was broke. For sure the graphics are better.

Hi Captains and Mates, all these problems will be ironed out shortly, Brady Kay is personnally watching this. The old board is intact, OHB and I are still here as we have been since we were kids in the 90s. I think we will all like this better once we get aquainted with it. Just bear with it as it will be fine. Any problems let me know. May you have calm winds and following seas. We need to get our Shellback thread going again. Who is a shellback? I know there are many Polywogs out there. They have to be initiated
into the realm of Neptunis Rex.

I could probably feel warm and fuzzy really quick about the new forum with a couple years free subscription to HB Magazine.........and if you could just move my picture over too.

07-11-2012, 03:43 PM
Test. Ignore this.

07-15-2012, 06:03 PM
So does this mean no free magazines :)

07-16-2012, 07:44 PM
Still no luck with avatar.

I'm sure things look different from magazine management, but from THIS side, I don't see much to recommend this new forum. Enlighten us as to what y'all consider to be improvements? Besides not having to figure out once that WYSIWIG isn't the way to go this century? I especially miss seeing the avatars. They add such a personal and colorful touch to the posts.
