I hope everyone is enjoying the new chat room and discussion board. There are several new options and things you can do to personalize the system.

There are a few minor glitches we are still trying to figure out but hopefully nothing that is creating a major problem for anyone.

If you will post any questions you have or problems you encounter on this thread we will be checking regularly the next several days and addressing problems and trying to answer questions.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and support...Hopefully it won't be long now until the new web site is up as well...

Brent Turpin

Hi Brent,

I have a question about the avatars. I see that mine and a few others look a bit funny, stretched actually, so I went to change it to a new one, but there are lots less to choose from than there used to be. Does mine look funny because it was copied from the old server but not replaced? It's really not a big deal, but I was curious.

Thanks........Trish

One more thing, I can't seem to find the emotion icons.

Never mind. I guess you have to use the "reply" button, rather than just the quick reply and they're all there.

We have noticed the avatar issue...the previous site linked to several pages of stock avatars and for reasons not quite known yet those options did not transfer....we are working on fixing this.

the icons do not show up on the "quick reply" option. You have to click on the "reply" button at the end of a post and then you have the icon options. I will check and see if there is another way to get to them or use them.

brent.

Any chance we can go to larger signature files? 100 letters is really too short.

Ditto to what Nobby said. Mine is currently 203 and was converted as such. I can't update my profile because it's telling me my signature is too long.

P.S. GREAT JOB ON THE CONVERSION!

Are there different post indicators that would stand out more when there are new posts?

If not, can you use them? I have the capability to make them....

Is the Search function one of the things being worked on? Looks like it's broken. I get this error message:

"We cannot proceed.
You cannot make another search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes."

The search function had a timer setting which limited searches to one per user each 60 seconds. This was done in the past so as not to slow down the site. This should no longer be an issue and we have removed the timer limitation.

Let me know if you encounter any problems

Brent.
