    Progress on the new forum. We have a list of 27 things we are going to start knocking down. I think I can come up with enough stuff to make it 50 items. We order we are going to hit them in is going to be what we think are the most important items and the easiest items to knock off. The ones that hard, expensive, or we are waiting on the work of someone else will be the last.

    We are getting closer closer to having the forum right and I will be spending a little more time on store than I have been but that will not stop the work on the forum from continuing to move foward.

    Actually there was a setting in the old forum for email notification on new pm's. I had been getting email notifications for a while now on the old forum.

    To change the settings:

    Hover over your user name on the menu bar then select "Contact Details" from the drop down box & under "Messaging Preferences" is what you are looking for.

    I thought the notification system retained the contact settings after the move. It is in contact details as Dr Jekell pointed out. Can you tell us if your setting changed with the move.

    hmmm, wierd

    280 some-odd posts and I am still empty pockets?

    No big deal for me, but I am sure that might upset someone...




    Oh, and good work Jon, things are looking up and up. Hopefully you'll be feeling like it is back under control in the next few days so you can get back to life as normal :)


    Speaking of the Forum store, any chance you've got a Pro-tech Integrity manual coming in any time in the foreseeable future? ;) ;) ;)

    If you can see it you can post.

    I need to get a mysql query to take care of the issues with the label under your username.

    ok, sounds good.

    And no worries about that label as far as I am concerned. It can wait, I know you got bigger fish to fry.

    Whoever is handing out these trophies, I didn't know what we did/do to deserve this, but thank you.

    I know it doesn't mean anything outside the forum, but my parents have always been taught me to share/express your appreciation even for the smallest things :D

    My settings did not change after the move. I still get my email notifications for subscriptions and pm's that I signed up for. I was just pointing out that pm email notifications were available on the old forum.
