Hey everyone! there are some small issues I'm experiencing. We need to give AnthonyG (server admin) time to work through the small issues before we go gangbusters posting.

I will keep checking back.

Yep.. he has been working every day to get us back to where we were. He is very knowledgeable about vBulletin. An expert also in the area of servers and optimization.

This actually is the old forum upgraded one level to 3.8.7. He has been testing and updating options that are better then what we had before, but it will never have the options of VB4 or VB5

We also decided not to go to VB4 because our gallery is unique and not available past this version.

More in the days ahead.

So happy to see this as well! Will the missing post be back? I ask that with lots of patience and no pressure intended!

Re: As you check into the "new" old forum
 
Are you referring to the 12 days of posts after the server change and upgrade?

Technically they are not gone. We have them on the server. We could not use that database on this forum.

We had to go back to the 9th and start from there.

We are going to possibly give everyone the option of accessing those posts if they need something from them.

Brilliant. After the change to the new, this return is like vintage Vintage. Except refurbished!

Nice work!

I am here, but the new old site looks seriously weird on Win 7, Firefox. Everything is very narrow.

Much, much better :)

By the way, let me take this opportunity to say a huge 'thanks' to you guys for your efforts - and I feel that even this word is too small for what you've been doing. I'm grateful, we all are.

I like the old one better. See you cant make everyone happy!

Oh just kidding, I think its great to have the old look back but there were some things about the last version I really liked. Like the comment button and the Avatar thing was cool. But it don't really matter to me the important thin is we are all here together talkin drums and showing off pics.
I do like the old method of posting pics, I mean the original one. Looks like the pic viewing is improved, I love that!

Thank you for everything, time to try the donate button!

Jeff!

Well... THIS is what we were trying to get back! The "original" format was unique and very user friendly. The version we are running currently DOES have some additions, such as:

You mentioned that you liked the "comment" box on the 5.0 version, well... try the "Quick Reply" icon on this version. It's a little piece of paper icon in the lower RH side. Click that and it allows a quick reply... kinda like the "comment" feature on the old perhaps? One of the MAIN things...

... was getting BACK the "Drum Image Gallery"... which we do have here of course! As far as the avatars:

No biggie. Half the beauty of this place was KNOWING a members username, which is displayed quite prominently at that. But, there will be little tweaks here and there too as we move on with this format. ENJOY!!
