OK... What do you think?? An improvement or not, folks? I have a lot more to do but I think everything is working OK for posting.
Please!!! Stop by and reset your profile and preferences. There are one heck of a lot of new options. It's the little button up near the top of the page that says "USER CP" There's even 'Private E-Mail' if you turn it on.
There's a 'Poll'. Rate what you think about how the forums are changing. Better? Worse? You don't care?
After spending the first part of this week without the Cove I have really come to appreciate everything this place offers. I made a brief foray into the ISOGROUP bulletin board looking for some information on a topic I was researching. The animosity and personal attacks on that board is unbelievable. We have a difficult enough job being the advocates of quality and change without a barage of disparaging comments from our alleged peers. My appreciation for the Cove and its management has increased tremendously.
Looks great, feels comfortable. It is going to take a while to get use to all the new 'stuff' but it took me a while to get use to telephones without dials (does that qualify me as an official geezer).
Well, the 'Poll' looks good. I hope everyone likes the changes, and believe they will. This is a big part of what I've busted my ass over for the last month.
It's still 'bare bones', but at least it's up and working. I still have a lot of 'config' work to do.
As far as being a Geezer - I was born in 1950 - so I'm a 'dial' phone and Black&White TV kid myself. I remember the 'family fight with father' over buying a colour TV in (as I remember) the late 1950's or early 1960's. We really put the pressure on. I can rmember when he finally 'gave in' he used to play with the colour adjustments for about every different show and station (he was a tech geek to some degree). I even remember putting the TV antenna on the roof and what 'fun' it was.
