What is a Chat Forum? How does it differ from the old Chat thread? Where do we post odd bits and pieces of comments?

In the Chat forum, Frecks. Don't worry about it. It will become obvious as our little home from home is re-built.

Copy and paste each relevant entry from old site, I presume?

Hi Foolscap - so glad you found us again. KK helped me as well or I would never have found the new Forum - I am very grateful. Things are moving along at quite a pace now.

Hi Frecks!
Really good to catch up with folk again, and, as you say...things are moving on rapidly.

I think most of the usual suspects have checked in. We're still missing Hostile Cacti (the email I had for her doesn't work any more), Tommy, and ICS. (I think?)

I think I've transferred most of my stories now. Fortunately I have most of them in Word format, so I just copied and pasted them right back. A couple of the older ones I had to cut and paste directly from the old forum.

Hurray! Welcome back.

We were struggling to contact people to say what had happened as we were locked out of the administration board.

Checked my email after posting and there was one from S666, so would've got here anyway. Well done to all concerned!

He's been contacted, Frecks. More absent than missing, I should say. :D

I'm back :D

But not all the smileys :shock:

What has been going on? I guess I'll find out as soon as I have the time to have a proper look at the Forum. For now I'm just pleased to see that I have not lost you all!!!!

Awesome to know the Forum is back, I was really worried for a while!!!

Hi there Hostile Cacti - we have been missing you and hoping you would find us again. There were problems with the old Forum so VZ and the Mods had to find us a new home which took some doing and caused a lot of anxiety along the way. We are settling in here now and most of the old gang have managed to find us. I will not be happy until I can celebrate with a row of dancing bananas :lol: VZ and the Mods are trying to load more smilies but it seems to be rather a problem.
