Well, this is quite surprising! But I rather like the new look. It's all spiffy and new. *inhales new design smell*
... er... where has the "mark forums read" button gone?
There is a link at the very bottom of the main forums page which says Mark Board As Read.
The "(Mark this forum read)" link is at top right of the forum list. The "Mark board as read" link marks everything as read.

Don't you mean 2am eastern? *stays up this late sometimes*
Hey it looks like the forum doesn't stop working for half an hour at 11:00PM Pacific time. That's certainly a plus!

Thank you for all the hard work.
I like the new look and the new features our new board has.
It must have been a lot of work done in your free time.
Ofcourse there are some things I like less then others but overall: I like it.

Like the layout and yes I am one of those members that lost his PM's as well. Guess you guys did not expect this to happen, so you must feel bad about this as well. No big deal, just takes a little effort to get in touch with the persons you shared pm's with.
I suspect they knew it would happen.
The "problem" is the amount of messages to transfer over to the new system. The Admins posted that there were almost 1/2 a MILLION of them to transfer...
They're not gone all the way, they're just not there Right Now.

Strangely, I've now reacquired about 7 of my old messages from around December 08/January 09. Perhaos it's a sort of 'best of'! No sign of any of the others though.

Is there anyone else who finds the current system annoying, and would rather have the first line made available, and if so, is it possible to change that function?

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

All my private messages are gone, deleted. And no warning either. Didn't anyone back stuff up before the change was made? There was some important stuff in there and now there is no way to retrieve it. This could cost me money. Who do I talk to about that? Thanks for the warning. My avatar isn't working either.
Well, at least the avatar is working.
Apparently saved PMs will be back at some point.
All well and good, but for now the so-called 'private conversations' that have taken the place of PMs are visible to everyone.
I don't want to read other people's private messages and I don't want them reading mine.
I can't send out any more pens or inks for adoption until this issue is cleared.
I also would like to request some fix so that we don't get an email every single time someone replies to a thread we're subcsribed to, which leads to about eighty million repeat emails. Just once per board visit, like the old system, would be much much better.
The extra mous-click necessary for navigating between boards also puts those of us with arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome at a disadvantage. It may not seem like much to a normal poster, but to us 'handicapped' ones it's a strain.

All the griping about the PMs just underscores the fact that email is still a better way to communicate- particularly on any private subject.
Agreed. And relying on the PM system of a site one neither owns nor controls for financial matters, as some seem to have done, is just ill-advised.
