OK fellows, it's midnight where I am and I finally took the bull by the horns and found out a few things as you may have noticed. I also screwed up somewhat and have a ton of deleting and moving to do, but we do have the STICKIES back. I've got lots of work to do so I'll get to it. Hope this makes some of you happy.

Lots of folks wouldn't take on a moderator/administrator load so your efforts are extremely appreciated.

I do have to tell you guys I made some mistakes. The STICKIES are gone, For those f you who were kind enough to post the information, would you post again and I will STICK them.

I don't know what else I did but when I transferred all the posts I got everything. Photos, Feedback, Traditional, etc got moved into this new Tech Forum. I've spent about 3 hrs. so far trying to separate them and put them in their respective sub-forums. Also deleted some missed spam and other threads that were about a year old and had no replies. Other posts, such as those by me announcing my scuba trips. So if you guys notice your post count is down you'll know why. I guess you could use the term purging, and I'm less than half done, but it will get done.

This is a new experience for me and it's learn-as-you-go. So if anybody has any more knowledge I'd sure look forward to any suggestions. I still don't know how to get the other sub-forums into your view.

I revised my "How to post Photos" thread and posted it again. My first one doesn't apply to this forum, since there are different steps to post photos now.

Barry, thanks for all the time you put in to get us back up and running. I just noticed, reading an old post that Destroyer has been eliminated. I know he has not been active in a while, but I also know a handful of guys have been looking for him, and now he is gone. I just wanted to let you know.

I'll check it out. I noticed right away that whoever was doing whatever while revamping this site deleted a lot of members. Maybe about 2/3 of them. Maybe it was a lot of the spammers and/or inactive members, and during that a few got deleted that shouldn't have. I'm not going to fault anybody for that. I've made a couple big boners just doing what I've been doing the last two days. That's why it's going to take me a week to get it right. That's what happens when ya don't know what you're doing. Learn from mistakes.

It may have been something as simple as deleting anyone who hasn't logged in in the last 6-12 months. A lot of times a person joins a forum to get some info and then they are gone. From my experience most forum users fall into that category.

That is the same reason I joined this forum, to get info about Martin Firecat 400/360s. Then I found out there is a wealth of knowledge here so I have stuck around trying to get myself up to speed bow set up.

Yep, and I see no problem with that. Done it recently with some android forums myself. Sometimes though its the politics, the fighting, the immature behavior and sometimes ppl leave because of organized groups trying to hold onto their 'power'. Sad really. :(
