Greg, I don't think that the voting feature will help things, and will likely distract from our discussions.

I noticed that aspect. I've tested it out with your post. One of the thing I don't like about the comments section on media websites is the voting up and down (not to mention the anonymous nature of

I dunno.I had a friend who owned a cafe/pub in Quebec City and every so often, he thought about renovating the place. After endless discussions of what to do/change, he invariably decided to leave it

Now that Greg has more or less put the forum back to the way it was before (from the user's perspective, it only has fancier graphics), does anyone know how to see in this new version which users are online, and in what thread?

In the past, we used to be able to know this.

Click on the link that says: Member Name below.

This link is at the bottom of the forum home page, below the line that says:

"Today's active content -- The moderating team -- Today's top 20 posters -- Overall top posters"

You guys have more or less finally put this forum back to the state it was (user perspective) several months ago. Good.

I have a minor, serious quibble. (This sounds arcane but in fact it's an important part of a poster's life.)

In the past with MLW 1.0, if I prepared a post, then used the back click, then the forward click, I would still find my prepared post. Now with MLW 2.0, if I back click, and then forward click - my prepared post is lost.

Am I wrong?

My prepared post is still there when I back click and then forward click.

I've always had that problem, new version or old. I suggest, when "clicking" to copy the prepared post to the clipboard.

Yay! The forum has been upgraded again!

I assume we can all look forward to another 2 weeks of August complaining that the Search menu doesn't work the same as it used to.

It seems inevitable that this will happen. Think I'll be withdrawing from participating on the board at this time. It has been a good run and I don't question the dedication of Greg and Charles in keeping the forum running smoothly. I know how hard they have worked in both design and moderating things. It has been great in terms of lay-out and subject headings for discussions.

I won't be posting anymore although I'll likely keep reading some of the threads simply for the insights. I might send a note or two to people personally if something strikes as something I just have your thoughts on.

Some of the posters here have been extremely interesting over the years. Some I have clashed with repeatedly but generally were never boring. Sometimes it has gotten quite heated. On occasion, I have stopped engaging with a poster or two to avoid a continuation of something that ultimately was negative. To any an all posters, I thank you and to some, I'm sorry if words or actions were more than just mere disagreement.

I wish everyone well and if there are any developments on the board, please let me know.

Once again, thanks for forum and thanks to the people who filled it with their contributions.

I miss posters such as jdobbin and many others who enlivened the Board in the past. I wish this one and others would return.

Peeves was good, if I remember correctly, as was American Women.  I came late to it, but I remember those and a few more.  Lots of "w"s  WIp, Wyly,Wwwtt, Waldo,

Cybercoma should never have left.  He was always good for a fight.

People who get too emotional should not (and eventually cannot) participate here.

What makes you think they haven't?  I've noticed repeated recognizable character tells.  I can't chaulk it up to similar mindsets.

No, you are not wrong.  However, such control is not a function of the forum software. 

The preservation of your draft post is controlled by your computer, your chosen browser and your internet connection.

I have to say I find the new look to be kind of cold. I know it's strange to think the type of font/colour being used on a site has an emotional appeal but it is a well-documented truth.
