although I can see why it needs some getting used to - and if you used to "chat" through the forum I guess it wasn't annoying that posts/threads from several hours ago had already disappeared from the bottom of the screen.
Now, thanks to the different sub-forums on the new forum - and the search function of course, which some people just can't seem to bother to use over here (!) - you can easily find what you are looking for. That's the biggest advantage, in my opinion.
Now you can easily search your own posts and the posts of any specific member, too.
I'd like to see all the nice people who really contributed here (with knowlegde, answers to problems and good questions and great pictures) come to the new forum!
By the way, I just registered there under the same name I used here (Guido S).
