    Hi All:

    I am in the final stages of a big update that should address a number of minor issues.

    SHO will need to be down one day this week for 24 hours or so. I am shooting for tomorrow if I can finish up some final details.

    Happy 2015!

    Biggest current issue is emails going slowly going out for new registerations or notifications. Intermittent downtime has been an issue. Spam seems to be under control.

    Plan to start the migration this afternoon. The SHO will be down 24 hours or so.

    I had ants at my last picnic. Does that count? Great job otherwise.

    I'm in, but pink? Not that there's anything wrong with "the Pink", just a bit soft of a color for a car club. Guess with the wife working at a Breast Center I'm a bit tired of it.

    It's not pink, it's light red.

    Wow!
    This is a change. I have no doubt it is for the better, but it will be quite a learning curve for me. So far I cannot find the messages that I have sent and have been returned to me, but I am sure it is in here somewhere.
    I admire the ability to remodel a big forum like this. This is huge!

    At the right hand top are three words: your username, Inbox, Alerts

    Click on the Inbox. That should lead to your messages.

    Thanks. I am facing a learning curve also...seems like new version is faster and less buggy. I was running into age problems with old version...

    This is mostly neat stuff, thanks for the improvements.

    However, you do have me stumped. I'm usually pretty good at this computer stuff, but I am lost on this one: I cannot find where to edit my signature. I found the signature (which is missing the sig pic), but there appears no way to edit it. Can you give me another clue?

    Ok, I guess I'll post here.

    I can't figure out how to edit my signature? For some reason my sig pic isn't working.

    Otherwise, the update looks very nice. It might take a little time to get used to it, but it looks good! Thanks!

    Ok. So the signature issue should be fixed. There was a permissions issue. My fault. Let me know.

    Working pretty well so far, need to try out the SEARCH :) Would like to see member's post counts next to their posts like we used to.

    Somehow in the change, my signature pics are gone. Is it possible to make sticky posts, new posts, and old posts easier to distinguish from one another?
