My one criticism is that I had to sign in with my password- it took me serious brainpower to remember it! xx

Well, gang, one of the plusses of the new forum is increased security, the negative to that is that you will need your password more often.  

The very FIRST time you sign in to the new forum, you will need your password. However, you can set the system to "always" remember you so you don't need to do that every time you come back.
HOWEVER, to make ANY changes to your profile and personal information you will ALWAYS need your password, for extra security. So write down your password and keep it handy!!

OK!  ;D

I am reasonably sure that you can all see the Discussion Forum now! (it worked in my "other" user name).

The new "rule" is that everyone who has passed the "secret minimum number" of postings can post there now! No more needing to ask that I make you a Palace member.  All you "old" guys are well past the secret minimum number.

Let me know if this still isn't working right.  :P

All I can say is WOW.  Everything looks so...professional. :P I went to change my profile and got lost. ;D

My only real complaint is the smilies.  I miss the old ones!

Sorry, still no luck for me, either. I even tried logging out and back in...


Is the Palace Member status a thing of the past now, or will it revert to being bestowed as a mark of distinction?

I did a search. I found the posting I was looking for, and someone posted a link to another thread about the same subject, but that link didn't work  :-/. I got the screen telling about the new address for the Forums. Does that mean links to other threads won't work anymore?
So then I tried to go back to the older postings to try and find it, found it but got an error message when trying to read the thread.

Hi,
Sadly, yes, Angie, the old link addresses won't work, at least until we fix the old forum to be read only. Even then, you will get a link to an address in the old forum, but at least then you will know where to look for it here in the new forum.

Sorry for this inconvienience

Hooray - -the Discussion Forums are back! (For me, at least)

Thanks for all your hard work, Rob. The last couple days have probably been not much fun for you, but the new forum looks great.
