OMG, I'm not in Kansas anymore!  :o

I was freaking out when I couldn't find the site.  Then I didn't realize I had to sign up again (computer illiterate just about, I am), and it wouldn't let me in with my old name and password, and I was sure something awful had happened. 

Now that I'm finally here, thank you so much for your hard work to create a place where we can continue to meet.  It looks different than the old site, but as long as the same wonderful people are here, it will be just as fantastic.

I think SMF is pretty good. I tend to go with phpBB because that's what I'm most familiar with. Whatever you end up with will be faboo, John, and if the database (mysql?) entries are there, I bet you can recover some of the old forums... Of course, I'm always the optimist.

Now for the important stuff: someone PM me and tell me why I can't add a profile pic? I don't rate or something?   ;D

Ever thought about using vbulletin as forum software? It's pretty darned nice, if I do say so myself.

vBulletin is proprietary. if you want to go the php/mysql route, phpbb is free and quite robust.

John is actually looking into vBulletin as an option for us.  May be awhile before we know what direction we're going though.

As long as we're thinking of going somewhere... Let's visit Scotland! I've always wanted to go... no reason for the raft to drift aimlessly... there should be enough pirates abord to stear by the stars and such...  :D

Not sure what happened, or how it happened, but I think I made it to the right place. Was looking for my link, couldn't get to it, so did a search and found this site. I Think I am in the right place. Is this a permanant (relatively speaking) move?

Yes, I'm guessing you found the right place.  No idea if this is "permanent" or not.  For now, it is what it is.  Just keep an eye open for updates.

As much as I hate change (trust me I REALLY hate change) if the old forums can't be salvaged just think of all the fun we'll have starting them all over again!

Yay!   So glad I found you all again!  Well done the Lift Raft Launch Team!

Fingers are crossed that you can rescue all possible (hm...  Sewing with crossed fingers ain't easy!  ;) )
