    Hang tight for a bit, maybe a looooonnnnng bit. :eek: I don't know yet, but there's still work to be done and lots of exploring to do. Mikey, myself and the mods are in the same shape and are feeling our way around. As Peter says, he's still working on things.

    I think that we should give Don, Mikey and the mods a lil time here to work out some stuff.

    Buy like my job- they'd tell me- hey- if you don't like working here- you know where the door is.

    This is like coming home to my beautiful neighbor hood to find they tore down the sweet 'lil house across the street- put up a CVS and invited all the graffitti artists to make the place look like a "hood".

    But hey- it's progress. Change is good- it'll keep me away from the computer.

    And, I know- things will settle down. It's like being addicted (apparently). You'll (me), be back. Too many good people here to stay away- unless they go away too.

    I guess I'm just no zealot when it comes to hobbies.

    Mark (party pooper).

    Hmmm, well, at least once I sign in it looks kind of familiar. Beyond that, I think for the time being I will say nothing, rather then anything I might think of....

    Speaking of spam, where is the Privacy Policy. Since we are now part of a much larger site with other hobby forums, what prevents our email addresses from being sold to someone? Just wondering.

    I am so NOT pleased!

    My first reaction to this new update: WHAT THE $@#%@#$%^#^#$!?!?!?!?! I'm getting links to stuff I don't want, nearly got blinded by this stinking white backround, and the $@%@# server wouldn't let me on the first time because it kept telling me that some dude had to OK me! Man, I miss the blue backround right now:(

    It is a mess but Peter will get it all worked out in time. It sure is a different look and is going to take sometime to get used too.

    careful with the $%&^*#$* stuff,,, someone will complain that you used $%^&^%@!#$ in place of the real words you was thinking and you will get a note saying you have to change it!


    i guess $%&*#$% is not PG enough for some.

    Changing gears in forums is always a hassle...you want to fix the probs but not upset the members, and that is a fine line. I should know, I admnastor a music forum of 200+ members. Hang in their folks...play with it...its not as bad as some are saying.

    Props to those working on it.

    I apologize for the outburst, but this new gauge is very horrible IMHO. The white backround keeps neary blinding me, I'm getting links to forums that have absolutley no conection to what I'm doing, my avatar isn't showing up, the smiles stink, and I'm getting pop-ups!

    So what were the problems with the old Gauge? Were they worse than the problems we now have?

    I for one miss seeing photos in the thread itself...the links that open a new window is extra time I'd rather not spend and an extra step I'd rather not do. I hope this feature is just temporary.

    I too had trouble logging on the first time but now it seems to work fine. I too miss my avatar and seeing all the other avatars. And just what is a senior member anyway? I'm only 31!
