No Haters allowed Zone.

I like some of the new features already. I have made good use of the "Mark All Read" button. Makes it much easier to see what I have missed.

We have been getting a slew of spam, but the new forums have kept them from bothering you guys at all. Now, I am going to tell on myself here. I was trying to ban one of the spammers and accidentally banned myself. :oops:

No getting the post count back. They were like a badge in themselves.

I'm tickled we were able to retain any of the old posts. Most of the people I asked told me a conversion wasn't even possible- at all.

But the bottom line is the conversion wasn't able to bring over archived topics.

That sucks we couldn't archive the old forum topics. I just realized today how often I looked up stuff on there. I googled what I was looking for and it directed me back to the PEI forum, which was a dead link. :(
