I am told the new look for Freerails will be up and running within the next 24 hours.

Things are going to look different, but the functions are going to be the same, along with some extra features.


Please take some time to have a good look around.


We are, like you, trying to take things in and learn.


There are new methods of posting pictures which allow you to post photo's to your post but still leaves you the option to use Photobucket if you desire.( See Gallery )

Let the fun begin.

Don

We are having a few problems getting the New Site up and running.

Our band width had exceeded the allowable amount with our old provider, thus troubles working with it.  Problem has been solved.

Now all we have to do is set-up the "GALLERY" which is a add on that will handle photo posting, and give you greater control of your picture file.

Jim from UltraBB has been working on our site for best part of the day, getting set-up with a minimum of confusion for us.

Bare with us, its happening

I expected thing to have a few hiccups, and I am sure you did also

What are your thoughts on the new look.

Don

Wow-the dadgum thing works! Now, what's this about photos? Do we still need PB to store them? Or can we just go from "desktop" to website? It all looks OK to me..

It's noticeable just how quick the migration has been - and just how well the site seems to be working, immediately after the move.

(Some members here will know that a lot of sites have encountered loads of problems with moves - the fact that this one has gone so smoothly speaks volumes ...)


As for the look of the new site, it's clearly laid out and easy to follow - and the key site / posting functions are easy to find and use.


I'm sure we could all think of extra features we'd like to see on any site. (In my case, this might include a "report post" flag, to make it easier to alert the FreeRails admin / moderation team to the {thankfully rare} posts that clearly don't belong here.)

I'm sure we've all got our wish lists - but the most important wish list is that this excellent site continues - and that all the features that are on this site continue to work. I'm happy that this is the case - and I enjoy seeing (and learning from) what all the real members post on this site.


Speaking personally, I think congratulations are in order - to everyone who's made it happen (whether these people are in the FreeRails team, or working for the hosting company).

I don't know who's done what - said what - or made what decisions. Actually, I don't particularly wish to know - it's none of my business. All I know is that a number of people have put in a lot of hard work - and have worked together - to ensure that everything all comes together.

(That - and, of course, I also know that I'm grateful to everyone concerned, for their efforts.)


In other words, it's all very impressive.

Long may it continue.


All the best,

Huw.

There has been a few hiccups but all praise should go to the UltraBB host, and in particular Jim Hale.

Jim has been there for us at all times of the day, he even fell asleep on the job. Think we are on the home run but there will still be few things to look for in the next week or so.

Thank-you for your kind words.

Don
