Nice to see that maybe we won't be inundated with bogus SPAM posts.
I noticed yesterday that the SPAM posts were being cleaned up, I'm guessing yesterday was fairly hectic with this thing, I know switching over software can be a PITA


The old forum is fairly "clean" with the spam posts gone except for some spammers who used valid threads. Just need to use the new site more though to get familiarized with what button to click

my say: im not happy with the new white look and locking the old forum.it was so much better to move around and see into the forum discussions,even though we still have the read-only option.

Not happy!

The old forum is kinder to the eyes and easier to look at because of its tabular format. Yup the new forum takes a little longer getting used to but at least "admin" is vigilant now and are removing spam and abusive posts before they choke the real valid threads again.

I'm quite happy as it's MUCH faster and as far as maneuvering around the site - it's just a matter of getting used to something new.
At one time - the old forum was "new" to everyone also.
Used to be known here as "feb7" - there's no doubt to my gender this way

It just takes getting used to. Like someone else said, the other forum was new for everyone at one time also.

This one also has more options and is more user friendly.
Application sent May 13, 2010
Started processing July 22, 2010.
Decision made March 7, 2011
Landed April 13th 2011
The whole process took exactly 11 months!

for Admin Please
 
Kindly consider the seniority level of all members from old forum. for example I was Top Member there and here I am recognised as new, you can have check with email addresses and give them there old membership status. This is my advice. Otherwise this new Forum is very good in all aspect.

I didn't know about the new forum until I accidentally got directed to this site.
It would be great if there was a note on the old forum (somewhere on the top part of the page)
to tell people to go to the site of the new forum.

This will spread the word about the new forum more quickly.
Hopefully doing this will encourage the old members to move to the new forum.

I'm not sure what you mean, as you can see - they are both listed on the entrance page and at the top of the old forum

I wonder if there will be any moderators this time around. Would be great if things like this could be stickied Tongue
