Welcome to the IMPROVED Forum!
« on: March 25, 2006, 08:29:27 AM »
Welcome to the NEW version of the Forum, same as the old version just better! All your old information is still here, no need to re-register or anything like that.  

ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: please make sure to change your bookmarks or favorite place holders to the new address.  The old version is on a different server and is LOCKED to be read only.

We expect a few "gremlins" in the system so please don't hesitate to PM or email me if you are having problems or issues.

Enjoy

FA

Thanks, FA -- looks great!

One question:
How come I can't find the Discusison forums? All those Forum Member threads and goofy games, etc.?

HELP ME!!!!! I couldn't remember my password so I reset it. Now I can't see where to change it.  :'( And until someone tells me how I can't change anything about my profile, like my picture or anything.

I can't see the discussion forum either, and I hope it's not gone because I remember some posters ONLY posted there. (Also Palace Members don't exist anymore? Or at least we were all just de palace membered?)

Also, it's really really slow. I don't think it's just my computer. I'm sitting here about to cry because it took 5 minutes to load this tiny little page. Is that going to change anytime soon?

The Discussion Forum is still there, I can see it and access it. Yes, the old Palace members did not seem to make the transition, but there are new controls, so I think you old time users can all now see it.
We are aware of how slow it suddenly is, I think its a bandwidth issue, we are looking into it

Margarita, I'll fix your password now. Relax, deep breath, "calm blue ocean"....

I can't change my profile - I have my password, but every time I try to, it says 'profile session timed out'.

EDIT - scratch that, it worked.  ;)

Looks terrific!  I'm sure the speed issue will be resolved soon.  
I'm glad that the members' threads are still there, although I'm afraid I can't see them, either.

I work with software all day and would be on the phone to somebody really quick about the speed, or rather lack thereof.   :-/  As a point of reference, to move forward in the forum, whether between subjects or between threads, it taking about 45 seconds.  To return to this posting to edit it took 45 seconds.  I am setting here with a new Dell and wasn't having trouble with the old forum.

"Back" works OK.

I just wanted to ask about the Forum Members thread, but it seems I'm not the only one who doesn't see it.

I am glad to learn I am not the only one to find it very slow. I was beginning to fear it was my computer.
I cannot see the Discussion forum section either. I hope it will be back very soon.
My signature has disappeared. Was it too long or something ?
