    Are we going to quit using the old site or will we cross post? How long will that go on. Ya notice I changed my name?

    Hey Gina,

    I was wondering about cross posting as well. I'd like to avoid this if possible, but I'm afraid people will still do it. I'd love to see everyone move over here, but there are still some issues that need resolving (mostly related to money ezboard is holding onto).

    CC said it best, "I pledge to be in both places as much as possible....and to maintain this one (ezboard) till the new (byc.com) one is familiar to everyone"

    Hope that helps!

    is this forum to replace the old one?

    or you just hoping we all transfer from that one to the other?

    I have been trying to post on this one as much as possable.[​IMG]

    Hey Henriettahen,

    Yes, the goal is to eventually have this forum replace ezboard. Change is never easy, so we're letting people explore into this new forum while they hold onto what they are use to.... ezboard.

    I've read a ton of great comments from members about how much faster this forum is, and how people seem to really like the tools / features. Hopefully the rest of the members will come take a look & poke around. I think they will like what they see and will hopefully start hanging out here more and do more of their posting here too.

    Nothing is set in stone, but that's the general plan right now.

    Will there be a time when the old board is not an option? Will it just close down and any members who don't join here just get lost? That makes me sad. Come on over folks, don't get lost!

    Cross posting is going to happen. Heck it happens with members on the EZboard site and several of the other boards I visit. The same person asking the same question but with the other boards it is almost totally different people who are memebers unlike the situation we have here.

    There are lots of things I like about this setup but the thing I don't like is being able to see someones profile and being able to pm. Am I just missing something that is available and I don't see it or know how to use it.

    Totally new to this site, and I'm sorry I never knew the previous site everyone is talking about.
    But I just wanted to put in that I think it is terrific.
    Well organized, easy to read and follow, and it is kind of cool to see the profile and get to know where everyone is from as they post.
    This site format reminds me of another site I belong to, FiberglassRV.com, very similar set-up and easy to learn/use.
    Thank you to all of you masterminds and moderators for such a great job!!![​IMG]
