on this new forum? Looking

Are there too many boards? Are there possible boards that we didn't think of that you think you would use/need?

This is a work in progress, and we want it to work to suit all of your needs, so let us know!

Edit: just saw your FAQ thread, Tom. Clap

...and the applaud/smite things are really just for fun...they're like skiball tickets...they are fun to get, but they really don't get you anything that's any more rewarding than the time spent getting them.  Woo hoo

It seems that Festivarian.com does not show up in my browser history. HMMMM. Is it just a firefox/Mac thing?

Oh!... and Tom I applauded you this morning and your rating is back up. I must have been channeling evil James last night, either that or it was a long day at the office.

Well folks... I've tried to break this thing and I just can't do it. It seems stable and easy to operate.

Change is always hard for anyone and the complexity of this bbs will be a bit intimidating for the newbie at first. The learning curve is very shallow though and most will be able to catch on in minutes. It could prove to be a huge amount of fun.

A few suggestions/observations  from my end...

The biggest and most important for me is  for you to consider those of us on dial up connections and avoid using huge files for graphics and the like, I use photoshop aggressively to compact photo files to the smallest screen resolution possible for website viewing. It is always very frustrating for me to have to wait for graphics to load for many minutes for just some basic information.

Please make doubly sure that purchases drop into a secure socket layer BEFORE any personal information is shared online, let the users know when that happens and everyone will be very happy.

The number of topics might be confusing to many at first and we will have to endure many months (probably forever)  of misplaced/off topic posts. This has always been an issue with any online community that I've been a part of. Is there a function in this system to move posts to an appropriate topic section? Is that the kind of administration that anyone to deal with? It could prove to be a huge pain in the ass.

If this cuts down on the spam thing I will be grateful beyond words.

Thank You everyone for taking the time to advance our sense of community.

and now we resume our regularly scheduled program...

Hippie -


I'm going to do my best to keep everything where it should be. (we do have the ability to move, etc...though too much of it may prove too much of a nightmare, we'll see)

...I'm going to put a poll on here to see if you guys think we are ready to invite some more people...

Karlos just asked me if there was an way to post pictures. Could there be a photo album feature intergrated into the forum.

It may end up being an added feature similar to the yahoo group file and photo section, but for now you have to include the picture in your message. You'll see my response in a new FAQ subject.
