Welcome to our new board that I am currently testing. Due to the volume of posts with our old board I have decided to look into other alternatives, especially one that would allow multiple forums as this one does.

Please test it and let me know if there any problems. This forum has most of the features of the old one, and many features it does not.

Please read the FAQ that is has an icon at the top of each page and most of your questions will be answered.

The only help thing I will say is that instead of "post new message" as on the old board this one has an icon that says "new topic". That is now you post a new message. You have to register before you are able to post. Registration is required in order to cut down on the number of "spam" posts.

Thanks for your help and feedback! :D

Kind Regards,

Different, a little more complicated. I'll get used to it and probably like it more than before.

Very nice - I like it alot because you can see all the messages without having to click on each one to open it. I'd be willing to be the emoticons will be overused though! :roll:

Upon the first visit it seems to be just fine and dandy. Since I'm still using dial up access, it is a bit slower. Might just get me off the dime and get with the times.

Will have to fool around a little more and sample some of the features.

I will miss the format on the other board format, this one seems very 'busy' by comparison to the 'cleaner' lines of the other:

Is it possible to maintain the deadbeat lenders list on this forum as well?

Summary: I am willing to try!
(from someone who has to be dragged kicking and screaming into new technology- that's saying something!) :?

This one is busier because it has more features and also displays all the messages in a thread on one page (well up to about ten then you go to a new page) instead of having to click on each reply.

The deadbeat list will be linked from this page if we decide to go with this software. At present we are just testing this.

Thanks for your help!

Frank,

Yes, I need to test it with dialup. Since getting DSL I forget how slow dial up was. I still have dialup as a backup from my DSL provider, so I will disconnect from DSL and try it on dialup.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Frank,

I am now on dialup and it is slower, especially the initial load of the forum index. I clocked 23 seconds for the new board versus 13 seconds for the old. Both was from a clean browser with no cache.

However after this, there is little difference. Clicking on one of the forums on the new board brought it up in 10 seconds. And clicking on a topic that had 8 posts (I think) took 15 seconds, however all the messages were visible and you don't have to click each reply and wait for it to load.

So I think the load time is acceptable on dialup. Also there are some things I can do to optimize, including possibly installing compression, however I don't want to do all that yet until we decide if this is the way we're going.

Thanks for your help!
