I know, you are all missing your avatars and feel naked posting without them. Don't worry, they'll be coming soon.
They are backed up and the plan is to get them all into a directory so that you can grab it and save it for the new forum. This will probably happen sometime next week as we work out other kinks first.
Check back to this thread as other problems and solutions are resolved.
Thanks for the update on the avatars. I'd been wondering how I'd recognize anyone. Plus, I've been thinking of changing mine again and was someone sad that I wouldn't have the opportunity.
OK- so as you can see the avatars live on. Sorry for those that I was not able to transfer but I think we got most, if not all, of them. Also, in order to update them click on the "profile" button. You'll notice a signature input box -- but that is not activated yet.
The new website looks AMAZING!!!!
Agreed! Eric and team, incredible job. I've lurked around before on the old site and as a new NTPer I really look forward to being around here on this new site. Thanks for your hard work.
I am nothing without my avatar.
WOW, I knew this was coming, but it was such a shock to see a diff website today!! Looks great at first glance!
Can we bring back the ability to private message members on the forum? Also, it would be nice to be able to edit your own previous posts.
