Okay, for some reason your registration isn't taking since I still don't show a user registered with that name.

I keep trying and it doesn't work......
THE LOGIN STILL DOESN'T WORK!  :mad: :yosemite:

Exactly what kind of problems are you having? Is it just not accepting your username/password combo?

It's not accepting my username/password combo.....

I'm not showing a user with the name "ParamountCartoons" listed. Try re-registering and see what happens.

It still won't work....

Check your PMs.

Hi eutychus, so sorry for not posting a response to all this sooner.

I registered on the new forum as "Zachary".

The new forum software seems pretty decent overall. My thoughts on some things, though:

- Have you considered enabling the attachments feature in place of the albums feature? The current forum allows people to attach files directly to posts, and should people really be able to upload stuff to the forum unless it's for a post? And it's quicker/easier to attach an image while posting than to have to upload the image(s) to an album first.

- I see that the forum software has [hide], [group-hide], [hide-thanks], [hide-posts], [hide-reply], and [hide-reply-thanks] BB Code tags. Based on the descriptions of these, I don't think it would really be a good idea to have these. If possible, you might want to disable these tags, if you haven't already.

- I see that a member's avatar next to a post is grayed out, and the buttons for replying, etc. are hidden, unless your cursor is over the post. I personally think this is a bit odd looking and would look into disabling it if it were my forum. I noticed that the theme the new TTTP In Exile forum is currently configured to doesn't have this effect.

- The default post font size on the new forum is a bit smaller than on this forum. I personally like the default font size here better.

- The size of the thread names when viewing forums is rather large. I'd personally prefer it smaller.

- A "Retweet" button? oh, please.

Eutychus, thanks for the heads up and, more importantly, thank you so much for all your hard work doing this, running the forum and the website.

It's great to have this place to talk about classic cartoons and it wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. It really is appreciated.

Well, I just registered over at the new site. My my, it's been a long road from the original Toonzone forums, hasn't it!

One question, will the new forum have that tool that allows you to pull up the threads that have been responded to since you last visited? I found that a very useful thing to have when you just want to catch up on the latest goings-on.

Click the "My Topics" link on the toolbar below the IAD logo.

Eutychus,

On 12/29/2014,
I have sent you a letter via "PM" about the things I'am worried about
if my threads are moved (by you) to the IAD forums' new home,
but maybe you did not read it, so later on that same day,
I have sent you a second copy of this letter (via "PM" again),
but although I've been patient, I still didn't get the response,
so I sent you the E-Mail version of this letter during the daylight of 12/30/2014, & I'm still patient & kept on waiting.

After you read this letter,
you can send your message to me
via PM or E-Mail.

Yes, I'm sorry, but I've been very busy here with both my regular work, my second job, working on getting the website converted to the new system and doing my regular updates on top of that. Besides having to keep up with all of my Words with Friends games. Nevertheless, we soldier on.

To wit: I've gotten more than a few PMs on a specific topic which I should now address.

It was never my intention (or ability) to move ALL of the threads from here to there. Just the important ones (like the filmographies.) The problem isn't with the original thread itself, but with having to move all of the responses as well, which wouldn't be possible if a responder hasn't registered over there. But if there is a specific thread that you want me to move, please let me know, keeping in mind that I'll just be moving the original post and that I won't be doing anything that you wouldn't be able to do yourself.

That being said ...

With my current schedule (subject to change at any minute) I'm planning on doing the switchover next Wednesday, January the 7th. It's about a 6 hour job for the software to completely move all of the database to the new system, but that will run in the background while I switch things around. But we will be down, hopefully only for an hour or so while I flip the switches and do the final testing.

Consequently, if you haven't registered there yet, now is the time, especially for the researchers. Remember that your message board login is now going to be the same as the login for the main website, which hopefully will make things a bit easier for you.

Thanks for your patience!

Eut., thanks for all the work you've done. I appreciate that you've set aside your personal time (and expense) to provide something for other people.

I'am already now a member of the new IAD forums!
& I have moved my 3 threads to this new home,
& have done other things.

I just want to say that I have a great time
chatting with the people (especially Steve Stanchfield!)
at the old IAD forums since 2013!

& to the IAD staff, I say that,
despite the errors & problems
that messed up this old home,
You all did a great job running the old IAD forums!

& I'am going to miss the old IAD forums!
But I will continue on, in the new IAD forums!

It'll be great to be chatting with you people again,
So I'll see you at the new IAD forums!
