Thanks and Appreciations
With all the bug reporting and error corrections and such that are being reported - I just wanted to be sure you know how much i appreciate the effort you're going through. I mentioned somewhere else that I've done my share of site conversions so I understand what you're going through (I once had to tear apart a database manually to convert from one platform to another and still keep the userbase and posts from the previous incarnation, that's how bad it got).
Anyhow, I just wanted to be sure to get in a good solid Thank You!
And some of the features i like from the upgrade:
the right hand column on the forum front page - showing a condensed version of the latest posts, AND the optional shrink/expand button for it, very nice.
The new attachment manager, once I got used to it, it's also very nice.
The title prefixes from the Map Requests forum, I see that being very useful for the future :)
I'm sure there are other things i like that are new, but those are what come to mind at this particular moment.
Absolutely. Fantastic job all round. I really like the new forum, and I am starting to see some of the new power it has being waved around. I am very interested to see what comes next.
Thank you guys sooo much for the encouragement. I really do love this website, even though I don't spend much time mapping anymore, I intend to continue to keep this website lively and up to date and THE place to go for fantasy cartography information. This forum upgrade marks the beginning of a transition for the site to something a little bigger, and I'm glad you all get to be a part of it with me. It means a lot to me that i continue to receive so much help, encouragement, and even donations from members and community leaders. This site is truly for you all.
