Well, this happens about every 4-5 years on this board.  Sorry to make everyone re-register and start the thing over again.  That's what I get for trying to fix something that ain't broken...

I have the # of posts you had accumulated on the other board, so after you register I'll change your post total to the accurate one.

After playing with this new board, I can tell you that it appears easier to manage and cleaner.  I also like the members map, a mod that I found while messing around. 

Again, sorry for the hassle.  I hope y'all will forgive me.  I think we'll like this board in the long run though...

Creek Dude, first let me say thank you for all your time and effort to even get us a forum and secondly, thanks again  ;D

LHR, nice to be back. 
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.

Thanks Tim for getting us back up and running.I have been missing my morning Sierra fix with the board down. I am not much of a tech guy and can not imagine what work has gone into getting the board going again. Thanks.

I think I like this layout better anyways...  I'' try to at least figure out a way to archive the old board info.  Thanks Tim for all the hard work.

Thanks Tim and the Board Team!

I reviewed the board a few days ago while it was still up and did not know it had gone down until Salim and Amarilla told me Thursday evening.  Glad I got back on 'early' in the beginning of the site's 'new beginning'.

Looks nice, very intuitive (just as I was finally figuring out the old board  :-[ ).

Again, the board administrative team is to be commended and thanked for all of your effort and support over the years and now as you continue to provide and deliver a fantastic 'product' and service for all of us to enjoy and participate.

(I do miss the variety of emoticons or avatars - maybe they are still here but I need to look around a little bit more)
THANK YOU!

Appreciate your efforts guys. For most of us, this isn't the first time the board has crashed. I can remember when I first signed on here, there was just one, long running thread. Not even sure how long ago that was, it's all just a blur to me.

Onward and Upward!

I think the clown that hacks our board needs to be set up for my target practice..........

The hack wasn't the problem; my attempt at an upgrade was...the biggest problem was that the files I have backed up haven't worked in attempts to restore all the members and posts.  It has been very frustrating.

Silver lining: this board has a nicer layout and is easier to manage.  We hope to figure out a way to restore the old board in the form of an archive.  In the meantime, we're off and running w/ this new setup.

Are not most things these days with age accumulating just a blur??

Thanks Creek Dude.  Still liked the old forum better tho.  I'm missing my favorite posts!  Maybe you can install the top 10 in the members section again too.  :)

I'm checking in too!  Glad to see the site up and running again.  Thanks to Creek Dude for his effort!  Anybody email wshawkins to sign in?  There's a history section that's right down his alley if you know what I mean!

Thanks Creek Dude !!!

Didn`t realize how addicted to this board I was till it disappeared. Thanks for all your hard work to make it a reality again. I know you do this because you love it, but would it help to have some kind of voluntary membership or donation plan. I am sure there are costs involved in running this besides your time.

Thanks again !
gone fishn, hope to be catchn soon !
