OUR WONDERFUL SITE

Post by Stanley » 23 Jan 2012, 15:04

I hope I'm getting these categories right! I've been trying to re-populate the site with familiar topics to help other members find their feet. I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it and no doubt after a week or two it will feel like an old pair of slippers. It's certainly working well for me, a lot faster than the old portal and in many ways easier to use once you've found what you're looking for. One thing is certain, I no longer feel deprived, the last day or two has been a bugger!
Well, this proves I can edit and the site lets me use gentle swear words!

Grummph...have finally realised I need to re register to get back (or forward as this is a new site) on the site, so "bravely going" I stop by to look at the message from doc, need to login to look at my profile, ok, managed to get my avatar..Bradders once you have clicked on the chosen pic scroll right down to the bottom of the page and click submit..you may then have to log on again to click submit..can't remember........came to see a topic entitled "our wonderful site", thought I'll add my twopenth but no..had to log in again first..oh dear am I logged in or not..or is it like borders between countries , new passport check each time I pass.............not complaining Doc honestly you have probably been working like a Trojan (probably not the best choice of adjective re computers!) just flagging up an early hitch but you did warn us it wouldn't be properly embeded yet. Thanks for restoring our wonderful site.

:lol: Yes, same here didn't realise I had to re-register. Doc has done a great job, he can relax a bit now. I'm sure Stanley will soon have plenty of topics back on the site. Long live OGFB. I look forward to putting more comments and articles etc on the site. :D

One thing I have noticed, unless you tick the box "log me in automatically" when you login, the site will time you out after a period of inactivity. It did it on me a couple of times until I read the FAQ which explains. No problem as long as the box is ticked.

Another new feature, you cannot delete any of your posts if they have been replied to. You can only delete if no one has replied. Admin or Moderator can delete of course.

One good thing....I can now communicate via my IPad. That is positively wonderful!

Some of the greeting messages are hilarious. They keep telling me to go to bed! ( this is because of the time difference between UK and Australia. It may be the middle of the night over there, but it isn't even lunchtime here yet!)

No rush .... "The Beagle Baron" will do me for the time being , eh ! (...just realised I've got him flying for both sides..Oh Dear !)

Can't even sleep at night at present with this infernal heat, Belle, let alone when the sun is directly overhead.

I love that new/old picture currently at the top of this thread - the one with the railway engine!
EDIT: ...and now it's gone and there's another fascinating picture - the wonders of modern technology!

Keeping an eye on the members list is like waiting to see who turns up at a party.
Old friends, new friends, some you know and some you don't.
A good sign of plenty more banter to come.

The thing that strikes me is how quickly the site has settled down into exactly the same mode as the old one. The feel of the 'mood' if you will is very polite, caring and supportive. I suppose this is a result of the way Doc got it just right in 2004. All right, I know I'm getting old but watching people helping each other and being nice is very comforting. Not enough 'nice' about nowadays!

Was much lost in the change-over? I hope we did not lose Conor's Corner.

Stanley has re-instated Connors Corner but he hasn't visited it yet Moh. Can't wait to see what Marilyn is looking like now. You should see the thread in Active Topics at the moment. It "lives" in the Painting sub-forum of the Hobbies thread.

Moh, we lost all the old threads but I reinstated as many as I could from memory. If there are any that haven't reappeared just give a shout. Conor hasn't come back on to the site as yet but I have his private address..... He can run but he can't hide!
