    Hi, dunno if you saw this, but in the edit options page down near the bottom of the options is a feature called Exclude Forums from "Get New Posts" where you can customize what you get when you use the 'New Posts' in the menu bar just above the thread.

    I must say that Julian expressed exactly what I have on my mind. I just would like back our old forum as it used to be. :-( I will continue in visiting this new forum, but without enthusiasm. Yes, I know that the only other alternative was complete end of CardModels.net, but . . . :-((

    That is all I wanted to say.

    Martian, I happy that you're willing to give it a chance. I hope to improve your 'enthusiasm' by showing you how much more I'll be able to give back to the community under this new platform. :)

    Yep, about five minutes after my post above I decided to check the User CP and see if there was something there to let you exclude posts from other forums and found that feature. Thanks.:thumb:

    Yea, that feature was something I considered an absolute must to be able to make this work.

    Peter, can you please add Coin Collecting to the Exclude Forums choices?

    Having excluded all but Card Models, it looks pretty much like the old cardmodels.net to me (except for the coin collecting thread I'm seeing). I'm happy. And for what it's worth, I'm not noticing any slowness.

    Changes or no changes, new server or not, colors... any makeup to the forum do not interfere with my delight to see all the familiar avatars here.

    I'm really glad... wait... HAPPY to be here again.

    THANK YOU!

    Hi Peter!

    Thanks for the quick save of this forum! I can't believe how much I missed it in just a couple of days!

    I'm definitely patient and will wait it out to see how this new forum location evolves...

    Now if I can just remember how to edit my avatar again...wall1

    Ah...there we go!

    Really pleased this site is back. I'm not having much luck moving round the threads yet but considering how quickly it was migrated I will be very patient. I welcome our proximity to other hobbyists. There should be more serendipity.

    Peter must have moved the wrong set of posts, I am hoping that sometime tonight, or early tomorrow he can switch it back

    The 'bullion' forum doesn't show up in the edit options list, so it can't be filtered out. Not a biggie, but figured I'd point it out ;)

    And thanks for all the work hosting this community - I think it's easy to overlook how much you do until we run into issues.

    I'm just happy to see that the problem wasn't my end!

    My first response was 'Crap, lost my network settings again'.

    Thanks Peter for all your hard work and sacrifice of personal time to give the rest of us chair warmers continued enjoyment. It is amazing how quickly we can take something for granted, until it is no longer there.

    I'm not too worried about layout and other changes. It is the characters here that make it for an enjoyable place to visit each day.
