    I thought that, too... it'd be a good indicator of how many members are active here, although I'm not sure if that would take into account those (I assume there are some) who just read the threads and don't actively participate.

    My avatar has uploaded a bit larger than before, cutting off his Top Hat. I tried the cropping option but leaving just the words "I want YOU" visible seemed a rather bad idea, knowing some of the members here.... :eek: :rolleyes: :p

    Managed it, am going to have a look around now. Just the 1 query, we have lost most of the smilies:rant:, the only
    one with a decent colour is this :D, (just for Jordan:p)

    You would be surprised, i'll have to wait for the Google analytics to do its stuff, but there has been quite a bit of activity.

    All looks very fine from here; apart obviously from Pugsley's suit.

    Well I finally made it thanks to Cynric ;), cheers mate. It was a close run thing the computer nearly left the building by the closest exit, namely first floor study window :eek: so thanks to you mate, the computer lives for another day. :D

    ATB, Martyn. P.S. Cynric, I am sure I speak for everyone on here when I say thanks for all your time and effort you are putting in at the moment.

    I clicked on the browse button at the side of the avatar, then went to where I'd saved the avatar and uploaded it. I will delete it all and try again. Hope it works.

    He even read out a letter from me.

    I've finally moved over, though it wasn't a totally painless experience. For some reason I had full access without going through the password change procedure. Then when I changed my password, the new system would not accept the new password that was e-mailed to me. So I typed in my old password and that worked.

    I'm not a great fan of computers, but I've entered into the spirit of things and even added an avatar thingy. For all you 1000 admirers it's D1053 Western Patriarch setting back onto a rake of Presflo cement wagons in Truro yard on 3rd September 1976.

    The 3 postings I've done in the gallery today showed 2 piccy's of the buffers after I'd finished, but the older ones only show 1 piccy, am I getting paranoid, or just being dumb.

    Are you resizing your browser window? it does seem to leave a doppelgänger sometimes. I wouldnt worry too much it looks ok this end.

    There are some oddities :confused: but considering that the whole database has been through 3 convertors it isn't surprising :)
    I have been asked to document the process as nobody else has managed to transfer attachments over, mind you it wasnt the most relaxing process :)

    I was under the impression all PM's were to be lost..? I now have 8 pages-worth of every Conversation I've had (and thought I'd deleted) on Western Thunder...:oops:

    Steady on, Alan!! It's Colonel Iploffy (or whatever Rank he's decided he is today) who's Officer Commanding Blue Squadron...
    Though I am partial to British Diesels being of the Blue persuasion, my all-time favourite colour scheme is White & Red.... allow me to demonstrate with a Gratitous Picture....

    Yes, I cleverly kept all the pm's and you cant delete them :headbang: I have filed that as a feature request.
    when the import was done It showed as the whole lot being unread, which was even worse as you had the alert showing 550 or however many you had in your inbox and the only way to clear it was to individually go through the whole lot and 'leave conversation' . fortunately I managed to write an sql query that took care of all that :cool:
