    Clearly lots of hard work went into the changes and the changes wouldn't have been considered unless they were seen to be improvements. I'm sure I'll adjust to them since they are minor changes compared to learning how to use a "smart" phone. This is the best forum of any I've visited or joined so very well done Chris.

    I'm too old for change

    Nevertheless did a quick tour and it seems did a very good job on the upgrades. I think FB has a rival web site now

    Kudos Chris

    Chris--
    Thanks for your efforts on the new pkg! It will take some exploration, but looks like it will be an improvement over the previous! You deserve a beer...or two!

    Hi Chris,
    First hats off to you on what no doubt is a lot of work --certainly hope you are getting compensation for it. Maybe I missed some posts on this, but what were the primary reasons for the change? I thought the prior format worked great. My immediate impression is mixed...like some aspects and not some others. Open invitation to meet and have a beer on me if you're ever in south sound.

    Ahhh, no. In gum, perhaps.

    • The attachment manager. When you reply, before you hit "Post Reply", try uploading a few photos with "Upload a File". Upload more than one. Choose to add a thumb and a full sized image. It functions how you would hope it would. The old software, not so much. Look at the photos below. The full size image presents like it was sized that way without screwing the layout, when in fact it's a pretty large image, well beyond the page size.
    • Post Ratings, so the community can shape the atmosphere with feedback without having a bitch fest. Are you racking up dislikes? Perhaps it's you, not the other guys. But it didn't cost the topics atmosphere to get the point across.
    • Trophy Points, which is a continuation of Post Ratings... Lets folks know that it's the quality of communication and what they offer, not the quantity of times they hit Post Reply.
    • Improved approach to Thread Prefixes. Look at the classifieds, click on a prefix that interests you. See what happens. There is a lot more I can do with those elsewhere in the forum.
    • The Inbox Conversations (private messages)... Now they function a lot more like a private forum discussion. A lot more useful.
    • A host of things that support the mods & I with spambots, moderating, etc.
    • Improved Search, although I have some work to do before you will see the lift.
    • And it just functions better. When things are sorted out, I think you will agree.
    • I could probably go on, but that was enough for me.
