Nope, can't agree with you there. Although i was up to 1450 posts, i really don't care. it would have been nice to keep them, but now i get to work torward a new goal..... 1000!
BTW alot of members complained that they wanted an updated board, but once they got it, all they did was complain. So i'm going to maintain a positive attitude through the pro's and con's of the board ;) .

1000 posts is a nice #. But I wanted to get 2000... I was sooo close.

For me and some more members the post # problem is solved :)
(lookie, lookie to the left :D ;))

The new forums are cool, the only thing that I don't like, is that we still can't have avatars :(
But I think I can live with that :)

feedback about the new forums is allowed, both positive and negative, but please refrain from using language like "this forum sucks", that is slam posting, which is against the Terms Of Use

thank you

Good idea. I'll do that too, eventually. :D Although I may not need to considering how fast my post count is rising.

I like the forum, I'm just in a haze as to how it works. Like how I accedently(sp?) started a new topic when I was trying to post on another. Probly' hit a wrong button.

Did anyone else here notice that if you click on the button that says 'Members' is has an option of showing who are the Top 10 posters, and then everyone after that??


I was #19 when I last checked last night. :D

The new VB board is much better, and why do people care about their post counts so much?

if you guys keep this up, ya'all don't have to worry about post counts anymore soon.....

post counts don't count if you don't make the posts count.....so make those counts count for something!

What????

So let's get this, make them count, even though they don't count??? :confused: :confused: :confused:

The only thing that bothers me is that I was used to the old forum.Oh well.It doesn't really matter to me that I lost my post count.It's like taking some years off.So,now I am young again-and enjoying it;)

I really like these new forums. They are a lot more... functional.

Hey mods, how about getting those webmaster d00ds to add in [center] and [right] tags for layout purposes? And I would also appreciate a much longer maximum length on the address within an [img] tag... Thanks!
