Congratulations on the great new format and appearance. This was a *ton* of work, and we appreciate all you're doing.

:coffee:

Thanks tom - now I get to try out the "Multi-Quote" system. The old forum had this but this is MUCH easier and more intuitive.
It looks great Basil, and I no longer have to turn off my VPN to log in. Great job.
Well that's amazing! I never did figure out why the VPN was causing an issue (it may have been the VPN IP was from an IP that was blocked and now that I'm on a new server -- just a hunch.
The new look is great. Like all changes it will take a little getting use to.

Thank you for all the work you put into keeping this site up and running.

I'm hoping people will eventually, once they get used to it, find it more intuitive
Looking good (but notice, likely still to resolve, that emojis in my tag-lines aren't there). :)
Yeah, I need to see about porting over some of our more popular "old" smilies - they still work for many situations.
Nice job, Basil
Gracias
Thanks for all your hard work, Basil. I'm stumbling my away around to get familiar with the new format.:)
Don't break anything!

Looking good. Thanks for your work!
Thanks you sir
Liking the new look so far. Only been to the Pub and will have to check out the rest of it!!

Oh there is so much to see!

I've been through several versions and am so far really enjoying this. Very easy to navigate and do stuff. Clicked on a pic and love how you have so many options.
Even pasting a snippet is easy.

I'm going to start doing some videos to introduce folks to some of the really cool feature that aren't obvious at first glance

just great - wow!

This is working great, admit to getting older and grumpy about change, this is really painless. I used to have to go back into desktop mode on my phone to look at anything besides topic headings on the forum, now I don't have to. Just posted a pic for fun, it was easy! Sadly NOT my car.View attachment 67904

Were you in a Movie with Walter Matthau?
Looks good Bas. I'm liking the new format so far, it's much easier to use from my phone.
Yes, the interface on devices is MUCH better!

I noticed that the new system doesn't show you how many people are currently looking at a given forum. It's no big deal but I always found it curious.

Possible mod later down the road.

Did Basil add that already? On the main forum page, right side, you can click on "Members Online".
Additionally, in the blue at the top, select "Members" then "Current Visitors" just below and to the left.

It looks like it.

Wow! checking out the new site and loving it! My biggest hope is that once it is all sorted, it will be practically maintenance-free for Basil.

It's like we're getting the original band back together!

Are you walking around open-mouthed because you're in awe, or did you eat some bad guacamole? :sick:
Awe, shock, and blank eyed stupor at the epiphany realized due to my recognition of the immensity of the massive effort expended ito create such a monumental construct. Kinda like going about ones normal day and turning the usual corner and being suddenly presented with a glistening travertine clad pyramid stretching into the clouds. Yep, that sort of thing.
I’ll be back, if not just to contact your prelate moderator to let him know that I’ve finally sourced a pristine Pacific Motor Imports chrome license plate frame for his midget. Exactly what the midget will do with it is anybody’s guess.

where someone is located.

Keep an eye out in the new forum I created for discussion of the new form software. I’ll be posting videos there on how to do different things here.
