Hi Andy - Nice to see you again.  The forum's great, it's just gonna take a little time to get used to it.  Stick around, we missed you.

I agree Carolyn, I love the spell check and messageing and everything so far!!

Carolyn have you not tried that movie question or are you stumped my friend?

Hello Andy, how are you doing?

I like most of the user information (although some things I was used to seem to be missing), although I feel that better use of fonts, and less garish colours, would make it more readable.

Spell checking is good (ofcourse, what I have not checked yet is whether it spell checks against a British or American dictionary).

Yeah I think that is true for all of us, we are certainly creatures of habit!! This forum should end up with alot less down time and they are working hard on the bugs right now! Our other forum was so unstable that alot of the time you couldn't get on or access the forums or post so this should be much better...Nice to see you back and how are you doing? :))

Incidentally, I do think we could have a better graphic for the button for the forum - that small little house would never amount to a forum - we should at least have a picture of the Colosseum. :D

The whole site is being looked at by some web designers - the idea was to change the forum over once the site had been redesigned but as the old one died a death it was rushed ahead, so the aesthetics should be improved in a few weeks. If you guys can cope with some rough edges for a few weeks it will save me redoing everything twice, and colour coordination is definitely not my strong point so it is probably safer to wait for the professionals anyway ;)

Thats cool and I think we can all live with that untill everything is done...  Thanks for all your hard work Dave... we will all get used to it over time... I already love it!  I can't figure out how to get my text bigger so I can read it better! Do we have a choice of different fonts?

I like the crashing less part. I don't like how long it takes to post a reply in this one. Can something be done about that?
