    Just to let you know we will be doing upgrades and maintenance to the site Friday Oct 12th

    Our tech team is well aware of the slow loading that has affected some members.

    So the site will be down, but check back often

    I am looking forward to this.

    Ben

    why no option to choose last posted reply?

    if you show who made the last post, why not be able to jump straight to it?

    It takes you to the latest post you have read. If you haven't read any, it will take you to the first post.

    New format is only 3/4 of my laptop screen. Is it just me? Is it supposed to be that way?

    Ben, this looks very good and navigation is fast as lightning. Congrats on an outstanding new software rollout.

    You can adjust the visual layout format in your member preferences. Pretty awesome control.

    Well we are back on and trust me, I am very much in the learning process, the admin page is totally different (as to be expected)
    I hope all will settle in with the new software as any change can bring some questions. This move was a must as our old software was
    no longer supported, plus I am sure this new software has some features that members will like and maybe we can include some from the old. Dont know though, anyway will be talking with our tech guys and taking in as much as I can.

    I cannot get my pics to upload. Is there something I am missing? It keeps giving me an error code saying my file is too big.
    Thanks,

    Wow! Try as I might, I can’t get a rapid succession of search queries to activate flood control. Nice work mods and techs!
