As you can see, we've new forum software. While I haven't implemented all the tools yet, you should be set to post and have your old position. Please email me at gotmead@gotmead.com if you follow the instructions in this post and still cannot function here.



************************************************** *******
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME UNLESS YOU'VE GONE THROUGH ALL THESE INSTRUCTIONS. I'M TOO SWAMPED TO HELP YOU IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE THIS.

************************************************** *******



1. Please read the FAQ, which you can access here (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_faq#faq_vb3_board_usage).
2. If you cannot remember your password, or it does not work, click here to reset it (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/login.php?do=lostpw).
3. Reset your avatar if necessary. Not all avatars made the transition. Read the FAQ (see above) on how to use your User Profile.
4. Check and update your signature and other profile options, most of that doesn't transfer from the old system.
5. Read the Forum Rules here (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=225).
6. Attachments did not come across. I have copies of all of them, so just let me know when you find missing ones and I'll upload.
7. Links to other forum posts will no longer work, as this software uses a different layout and database. So, use the search function to find related posts, and refer to the 'related posts' you'll see at the bottom of every thread page.

8. Enjoy Gotmead's new forum!!!
