Hello New Software

As you can see we have now converted from Sparklit ActiveBoard to vBulletin. Many of you who are active on other internet forums will be familiar with this software as it powers most of the larger forums online. Please take some time to poke around, click some buttons and get used to the new software.

I am sure everyone will have lots of questions so please ask them here.

Well done guys - quick and painless. It doesn't always go that way.

Greetings,
Thanks Janet H got the OTDE thing. Might mention Avatar (missing). Not a BIG thing but please address IF you have the time or can I do it myself. (you must be overloaded with "what about's" and "how come's"). Patience my dear, patience.....Oh, and how do I add My moniker (RTF) to end my posts?....All in time..."The ox is slow but the earth is patient".

Looking very good! Will take a bit of getting used to the new format, but that doesn't mean that it's not better!
May not be able to load a new avatar though, as it apparently has to be less than 100k, and I have nothing that small.

Thanks Mike for your help - all is good now!!!

Got in, changed password without too much trouble. Like the new look of the site, in a few weeks it will seem like its always been this way. Thanks for you work!

Looks awesome

The way it looks and the way it works are usually two different things.
