WFF The new forum

Jim, just think of a conversation as halfway between a PM and a group. You can invite up to forty into it and it runs like a group thread. You don't have to put it out on the main forum for all to see.

As for the rating system the one big advantage I see is the Mods. will have a way to watch out for real troublemakers. You know, the guys who like to stir the pot just for fun. Or think they are back on the debate team.

Jeff, you were on the debate team? Great point on the conversation option. Many participants but a closed list of members. Sadly, I'm not in many conversations.

Maybe it's just that I'm getting on in years and don't like change. I get comfortable with things and like it that way. I do agree with some things changing but not all. And maybe it's because I'm a grouch and don't want to change..

Hi Chris,
I was having trouble in the first few days of the upgrade with the readibility of posts. But the recent changes (color and font size) have resolved those problems. Many thanks.

I expect some difference. The new forum recounted and would not take into account comments in the gallery or posts in groups. It would also remove any previous counts in discussions that were remove, such as classifieds ads that people frequently delete after their stuff is sold.

That said, the new forum search on your posts only found 16 posts. I show many more than that on the old board. I'll look into it when I have some time. For now, I have some larger issues with the new forum & gallery to deal with.

Chris, thanks much for the quick reply. No worries, the post count doesn't actually bother me, I was just curious, that's all. I've said this before, and I'll say it again: thanks much for keeping this place going and for dealing with everything in such a quick and courteous manner.

BTW, if it's any help, when I look at my profile and click on the "Find all content by Kenneth Yong", I come up with 91 postings -- I didn't think it was as many as that!

All the best,

I am having trouble sending a "new conversation". It cleared the juicy OP report that I had typed up for 15m and then gave me a 500 error.

Jesse, I don't know yet what's causing it but I can duplicate it. If you were to have gone back it your post should have been there still, but either way damn that sucks. I'll have it sorted out soon.
