    I like the new look of the Forum, but a couple questions:

    Are we still the Gauge or are we now Zelot?

    I've noticed a few unusual new forums, RC Aircraft for example. A bug in the new system, or are we branching out into combined hobbies? :confused: :mrgreen: :D

    One suggestion I'll make, although it is probably already under consideration, are the smilies on the side of the reply and new thread pages. There are 4 confused, :???: :confused: :? :-? 3 neutral, :neutral: :-| :| 2 smile or happy, :) :-D and 2 evil or twisted evil :evil: :twisted:.
    While access to the rest of them is very simple, I might suggest exchanging some of the evil-confused-neutral ones with some of the more commonly used and upbeat ones: :D ;) :p :razz: 8) or :cool: :rolleyes: or :roll: :eek: :thumb: :wink: :grin: , just as a few suggestions.

    Good work, :thumb: :thumb: although the first time I logged on I thought I had gone to the wrong place. goldtoth1

    We're still the Gauge,it's just that we switched to a new server.I believe the name Zealot encompasses all the hobbies on the server.

    The smilies are on my list of things to take care of. Peter has his hands full with other things. Just give us a bit of time and we'll have all these little quirks taken care of. :|:):?:???::mrgreen:

    And yes, Chris is correct in saying we are still the Gauge, we are just sharing space with a few neighbors and we might just see a few more move in before we settle down. Some of these forums are very active, so if you know of anyone that has an interest in any of these hobbies, let them know about them, please....

    Still The Gauge as far as I'm concerned. Just the urls that changed, not the community.
