    Hi,

    So after weeks of testing and a few days to get the converted forum sorted, I have now reopened the forum for members!

    You will have to check out the new forum software and functionality for yourself. Please use the Test Post forum for test posts.

    Also note that a lot of documentation is still not up to date, I’ll be working on that as we go…

    Post any issues that you encounter in this thread (or forum). I know the site isn’t perfect yet, but I didn’t want to keep the forum closed for posting for another 3-5 days just to get it completely ready.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Yes, it'll take some 'getting used to', but the other software is just not up to it any longer.

    Very nice Arie,
    And I can't even imagine all the time and work that went into updating things, but it's looking very nice, so far. I thought it might be a good time to "update" my photo too. LOL The other one was getting quite outdated as well. LOL

    You and your group do a wonderful job here, helping so many, and I have always been thankful that I "found" you when I did. Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
    Sandie

    Yes Arie,
    I think that you should. None of us stay exactly the same. :)

    Thanks, it is a few years old, I'll keep a lookout for another one... point is that I'm usually the one holding the camera, and have a commitment to not make a selfie :D

    I don't know about the majority of the members here, but I like "seeing" who I'm talking to. And one lone photo is not the same as "selfies" all over social media!! LOL Have a wonderful weekend.

    All good here Arie. I know the feeling about selfies and I resemble your remark about who is holding the camera. My wife often makes the remark that there are few photos of me in the family albums. Neil.
