    So, what's the skinny?

    ok, so first I get a number and my "tourunigo" is gone......then, I make a post and the Title is not in Caps like I typed, and then.....and then..... I now only have one post indicated but I got my 'name' back. So now, how do I explain to Mary that I have really been on here for some 3,000+ posts? Dang.....dang! I could be wrong I suppose but it sure looks scrabbled. Gee, I hope that the Word Association folks don't loose their tally. - Bob

    What we really want to know is why you need to explain this to Mary...

    somewhat odd...

    this "improvement" to the IT Software we've paid for. Bob, you'll find the thread "I'm just a number in the MOA system" entertaining.
    Its listed under the IT software header in the first section of forum listings. I too...am just a number

    Renewed but maybe caught in some case of mistaken identity. Seems that I now have my username back and inmate number gone. Guess I'll just have to go over to Word Association to get my hit count up again If only I could gain ten years back that easy in real life - Bob

    YIKES! Now my avatar AND signature lines are gone. Not only has burning a candle at both ends finally caught up to me but I am also being disassembled at an alarming rate!

    Not quite in the same vein, but when I've done a search for older posts which I've access before, no luck. However, I am confident that once all the bugs are worked out, things will be even better than before; right?

    That's certainly the plan. The office staff has a big list of things to look into. The search feature has been a problem ever since we upgraded to this new version of vBulletin back in December.

    Kurt,

    I would suggest that if the December upgrade cause a problem that still exists, such as search, we need someone with more knowledge to be working on it.

    Almost 4 months to fix that problem is more than adequate time.


    I plan on talking to Bob early next week.

    Regards,
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    One thing for sure...and all should know...

    ...."there's a up-rising a brew'in" on this IT stuff happening. Have a look at the related problem area threads littered across the forum...
    especially within the "Q & A" to the candidates for BoD... that's getting serious with folks who seem to know; and its NOT hindsight.

    ,
    I agree. I have never seen a forum or website with as many problems as the MOA.
    The sad thing is, I pay $40 a year for this.
