CT is a double barreled pain to try and log into anymore. :( Please leave this one just like it is. Please? No "improvements". It works just fine. :huh:

A neat trick for small print on web pages is to hit Ctrl key and the plus sign at the same time...the text and most images will enlarge. The more times you hit the keys the larger the text will get.

To take them back to original size hit Ctrl and minus sign.

Same thing with the Craftforum.com

I get on, can't get on the next day, off the next day, etc.... sometimes for days at a time too. Never a problem here though! I hope it stays that way.

I just got back from CT---Big mistake----The lead page makes you want to leave the site----

I couldn't tell if I was logged in or not---and there is a big gray mug shot under my name.

No todays posts at the bottom of the page-----far more irritating to navigate---no longer an intuitive site---just confusing and slow.---Mike----

You tried to access the address http://www.craftforum.com/, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.

How many days will it be this time? It's anyone's guess!

Give it some time... already a lot of people who at first said they didn't like it coming around in a 1/2 a day. The new site is going to be a very good thing.

I for one like the new layout.
The old one was getting a bit stale, like your favorite pair of work socks, sure they are familiar and comfy now but god, they smell like ugh.

I have no idea what that has to do with anything I just like posting when I'm drunk.

The new Contractor Talk is too hard to use. The ads take up a third of the page. Most of the comments that I read were negative. That was one of the easiet to read forums that I frequented. I wish them luck with it.

Thanks DM I will Google that.

I tried it (the washing machine thingy) on my favorite (read only) pair of underwear, (the wife insisted on it.... go figure...) and surprisingly enough, they're not stiff any more!
Who knew?

I've read every comment on the new site and I can tell you that's not the majority opinion. We've had a few kinks which we are working on like resizing some large images and reformatting a couple things. There are always kinks with any new system.

It's probably a good thing that you're working out the bugs before bringing that format here then, huh? :wink:
