Good to see that something has happened, and that image upload seems to have been taken care of. Although they have to be under 500k so will have to be resized before being uploaded?
Can I ask what the decision process was around the sub forums? They seem a bit confusing and possibly not needed.
One of the nice things about this forum is (was?) that all the topics are in one place.
Also a real shame that the old forum threads haven't been properly imported, with a bit of time and work it can be done. (Speaking as someone ho has done this multiple times for large forums as part of my job!)
There are some odd posts in the "Help, I need somebody, help..." and "Nice to know" all from Management last year that then seem to have replies in them from other people within in the posts themselves.

So we have just 4 days from the announcement to the date the site is locked. Not very long, is it?
Also, 'The Management' opening post is all very well but WHO exactly is making these changes and with who else have the changes been discussed and finally agreed?
Surely we are all entitled to know, especially if something should go wrong with the transfer?
Cannot seem to get an email back to myself to complete registration on the new site.

I wonder how much the requirement to register will put off the casual/infrequent viewer/contributor? It would be a shame if the more eclectic posters were deterred.

I tried to register and received a reply (an hour or so later) 'that you've successfully unsubscribed to the Austin 7 Friends Website and you won't receive any more reminders !' Not the best of starts or very reassuring !

I can confirm you are a fully registered member James and would suggest that you have (inadvertently?) unsubscribed from reminders.
I'm still waiting for an email link to activate my registration... I guess you ave a few to do?
You are already activated Nick - automatic activation appears to be on.
Yes, I registered - still waiting for an email, but was able to post and change my profile details etc. Seems to be working well (fingers crossed!)

I've asked for the coding and have been waiting 27 hrs now. It's a pain when you haven't a clue what is going on.

I can confirm that you are activated on the New Forum Derek and that you last visited it 5 hours ago - all looks good this end. 👍
