Ahhhh....Boss, could you possibly give us peons a warning the next time you plan something like this, ya had me shaking in my boots trying to figure out if it was my computer, ISP or something else. I even contacted other forum members to see if they had a problem getting in the forum huh.gif . BTW I like the new look and the added(new) features. biggrin.gif cool.gif

I think the upgrade was a little more involved than was planned for. Some upgrades of forum type software can almost be done without any disruption to the forums. Others, as this one apparently was, are more complicated.

Surely! But I am very certain they'll come back very soon! As Marc said, this new software apparently is more safe and offers more modding capability! Also I like the extended message editing capabilities and the "quick edit" function and even more the ability to quote from multiple messages. smile.gif

Well, if it will make us more secure, then OK. Besides, that means it WAS broke. I withdraw my complaint. The only problem I'm haveing, now that I'n getting used to the new look, is getting back to a sub-forum from a thread (such as Screenshots, within the Gneral Discussion) the only way I have found os to go all the way back to General Discussion, then click back into Screenshots

Once we get the bugs worked out, such as the duplicate PMs left over from the previous forum, we'll be in a position to improve the navigation a bit. For now, we only ask that you folks remain patient. smile.gif

Cheers!
