Greg,

I hope the 'new forum' passed the test. I'm sure I'm not capable of passing.

Cheers,

Gary-

for some reason, most of my history was wiped out in this most recent update. Why the need for a change? There was absolutely nothing wrong with the prior forum. Why no warning? I check in to this site fairly regularly, and I don't recall seeing any discussion of re-doing this forum. Isn't member input encouraged?

This is why this site will never be an acceptable replacement for Rennlist, or even Pelican. This is the second time in a number of years that a reformat has killed my history and dropped me to the status of "new member" even though I have been a member since 2003 (with a 2 year hiatus in 04-05).

Hey linderpat,
I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the new site. Hopefully we can get them resolved for you.
I have tracked down two existing accounts for you on the new site. The account you are currently posting under is the only account that has any posts, and it is the account that migrated from the old forum. If you know any usernames you may have used on the old forum, we can attempt to query the database for all of your old posts and associate them with your current username on the new site.

2015 Red/Black Honda NC700X
2015 Brownstone Metallic Chevrolet Colorado Z71
2006 Black BMW F650gs
1998 Ascotgruen Metallic BMW 318i - LS Swap Project
1988 Grand Prix White Porsche 928 S4 - Almost There
1967 Marina Blue Chevrolet Camaro - Project
1957 White Chevrolet 4400 Flatbed - Project

I have well over 100 posts (since the last wipeout a few years back, where I lost all of the prior posts then). I only use this username ("linderpat") on all car forums and it has not been anything else. I see I have only 1 post now, even though a search will yield more. also, I note that none of the forum posts are current, but go back to over a month ago. I know this is not correct, as there has been activity since then.

Hi Ed,
I've been helping Derrick with the new website (I hope you like it - apart from the Forum..... :lol: )
I did a little database research and found that your username (linderpat) and id has 136 posts, and think I can shove it into the database with no side effects. That number would make you a 'Premium Member'. I've asked the software provider if I can do that and if so, I'll work on doing it for all of the users.

I don't know what the old post count tags were, but they are easily changed to mirror what was on the old forum, once we find out what they were and how many posts equaled which tag. We can even make up our own tag names. We could call the 100 post level "The Century Club", for example. Or "Master Word Mechanic".

It might take a few days, but I'm pretty sure it's doable.

I will say that I kinda like the layout, but yes, some warning would've been nice. It seems that my topic is still here but there are about a years worth of posts missing. I have also gone back to "new member" status.

You can be a mechanic or technician...The choice is in HOW you fix it, not THAT you fix it.
