There will be a 'Photos and Art' section for art/sketches etc and for 'general-musings' there will be a tag and they can go in General Chat

Or did you mean something else?

Photos can be uploaded to any thread (so long as you are at Trust Level 1 - 'new' members are at Trust Level 0 and can't do things like use the PM system or upload images )

So, we won't have an album themed place on our profiles like now, but we will be able to post a thread & add pics to those as we want? Is that right?
I am glad we can post a photo more than once though, because often one pic can be used in another thread it's related to.
That's right Tiffany

Yup... and everyone can post more than one thread, so have dedicated threads for specific items

Technically they can (as they're just threads) but generally if you post a thread that says "Photos of my dogs" people usually don't add their dogs to the same thread, but post their own.

And....

On previous 'editions' of sites we didn't have the things we have here now, photographs could only be accessed by linking to a 'host' site like Photobucket, then came the Albums and Attachments feature and we could link directly to photographs on our PCs making things much easier .

Each update offers new and easier features and we soon get used to them and forget the old ones.
What Meg said^^

There's give and take on each update that we've had - some things we lose but a lot of things we gain. I hope you'll all agree that the thing we gain far outweigh anything we might lost

Thanks Azz. Am sure we'll soon get our heads round any minor foibles.

Don't suppose you've got a rough lead time now? My nails are bitten down to the quick.

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

I'm more interested in when this forum will close.

Will it just be lights out when the new one goes live?
An instant switchover?

Or can some of us old timers enjoy a nostalgic sentimental sojourn on here for a little bit before the end of days ?

I have rather fond memories of here.

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Morty, why not take a few screenshots of some of your favourite moments and put them in your own photo thread on the new place.

Do you remember that time when I posted how lovely you were? That'd be a nice post to snip out.

Rare, too!!

It will close when the new forum opens... but will still be accessible (so won't be going anywhere just yet). All our posts are on the new forum (just in archived sections) and I have moved a good few to the new open forum sections to get us started

When people post in older threads that are in the archives we'll move them onto the new open forum after adding tags and ascertaining which section they need to go in

Are you doing this on your own, Azz, or do you have help?
