I like the main format of the

I like the main format of the new site but I believe that the forums area needs some help.  I use to just go to "New Topics" and that would bring up what ever I wanted to but if you go there now you have to work yourself through all the filters.  I would also like to be able to see a members location under their user name.  At least then you may have a little better idea of where he is talking about when you reply to a question and he does not give a state or location in his post.  Also you have to preview your post before you can submit it to the forums.  One question, how do you seperate paragraphs now? 

 

   It's going to take a little getting used to.

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for the feedback guys! We're still working out the bugs and trying to get all the settings set up properly. We couldn't work on the forum portion, until we shut down the site and imported the old forum, so we've been scrambling all day trying to get it all fixed.

Give us another day or two, we should have it working similar to the old forum.

Simply typing like you normally do, should now allow you to create paragraphs. We did have a problem with that area.

Critter, the "new topics" should work properly in a day or two. Right now, it's seeing all the imported threads as new topics, as well as any we've edited. We noticed that problem right away, and believe it will disappear.

Will see about getting locations listed with usernames.

We will be adding more features and fun stuff!

Keep the comments coming!! Yes

I like the layout well, but

I like the layout well, but it is extremly slow and now takes twice as long to open posts. I hope this problem is resolved ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also maybe under the last post column can you change the date format to month, day, year.  instead of year, month, day, or is it to make old post eaiser to identify, but it still drives me nuts.
