New Forum Software today!

And we're back!

Thanks for your patience while we updated the board. There are still some tweaks being made but you should be able to login and post. I'll start another thread with some basic info about how to navigate the layout and update your account if needed.

Post here if you have questions - we'll try to help

Like the new look. As soon as I find everything and get used to it I'll probably like it.
Many of the links in the "Recent threads" get a

somewhereinusa, you do not have permission to access this page.
When I try to edit the "About me" in my profile, I click on the edit button and a box opens with a space to type, the cursor is in the box, but it doesn't accept anything from the keyboard.
There used to be a "view unread posts" link that I had saved as a favorite page, very handy, I could go directly to the posts that were new. Have I just not found it yet?
I also tried to update my profile picture, when I go to my profile page the new picture is there, but the picture with a post on the forum is the old one.

The title banner looks cool. The school-bus yellow color scheme rocks. So far so good.

Edit: just a note to add that that posting utility is easy to use.

This needs to be fixed to allow more images. Only allowing 4 per post is asinine.

I prefer the old look, it displays better on my desktop. But don't want to stand in the way of progress, especially if this works better with mobile devices, which I do not use.

However, one thing is sorely missing. The old BBS had both the date and time a thread was started with the title, in addition to listing the date and time of the latest reply.

For example, you will occasionally see a "Bus for Sale" in the classifieds that was listed in, say, 2010 that rose to the top of the stack because of someone's new comment. With the new BBS, you actually have to open each topic to see if it is recent or ancient.

Just my 1/50 of a Federal Reserve Note . . .
