If Alan reads this, I don't know what's happening.

I logged in under my name and the welcome message has someone elses name on it. I'm also having trouble reading the forum, the facebook connect icon is blinking on and off and every time it does, the page resets to the top.

I've attached a screenshot of the other persons login message.

I am also experiencing difficulties. The system is accepting my posts and displaying them in the "New Posts" section on the main forum page, but the posts don't actually appear in the forum in which it is posted. Those forums also continuously reload new advertisements.

Thanks Phillip.

It gets more interesting. Under Firefox I can see your post and also one from TimTurner. If I use IE8 (I'm running XP) I only see my post - but I can read the forums as the facebook icon isn't blinking on/off.

I still can't read the forum on Firefox due to the page continuously resetting to the top as I scroll down.

Interesting. I can see my own posts in IE10, but not in Firefox 24.0, wether I'm logged in or not. The only thing I see on this thread in Firefox is the first post.

OMG! We missed the message board's 15th anniversary on 11 December; see message #1 in this thread.

Congrats, Phil, and thanks.

I for one cannot express enough how happy I am that this discussion board is here. I can personally say it has changed the way that I have done research. To have such a collective of some of the greatest Titanic researchers in one area is bar none! To have a community to bounce ideas & theories around, no matter what they are, is absolutely a blessing; especially when that community is full of committed people who only seek to honor and build the history and legacy. Though there has been times where things seem to get tense on here, I believe this is only because of the passion people feel, and our struggle for the understanding of the truth. The fact is, many of truths will forever escape us, which is why such a discussion board is not only in existence, but is also necessary.

I've been reading this forum for sometime, picking the brains of the many people on here. It took me a long time to feel like I was at the point where, not only could I join, but contribute. So many of the people on here, rather knowingly or not, have paved paths to further my own studies. The fact that a simple nobody, like me, can join in and be assimilated within such a eclectic group of amazing people, who I've admired and respected for so, so long, is one of the greatest honors I've ever had.

So thank you all for this amazing opportunity to be a part of something as great as this site! And thank you Phil for making all this possible!

Deer-ie, deer-ie, deer-ie me! I'm puzzled Bob. Phil was a fawn what? Perhaps I'm a little be hind? (Oh I know what some folks think of me so don't bother.)

Seriously. This site has given me a great deal of pleasure throughout the years and helped me to keep my ageing brain cells active. Pity about my sanity.:rolleyes:

Well said, young Brad.

It took the new forums a minute to let me log in but now that i'm here, I think it looks good. Hopefully the revamp will attract some new members too.

Cheers,
Adam.

I don't know... it seems fewer and fewer people want to discuss things in any detail. All we can do is try to make it as easy as possible to take part, hopefully this new system will help as the old one was horrible!

Hope you're getting the hang of this new forum. I certainly find it a lot easier to use. One thing I have noticed that might be a little confusing. Profile posts are conversations that take place on your own profile but are public, while private messages may be sent using the inbox which you will find next you your name.
