I'm back again and see only positive changes, very clear and simplistic design.
thanks Hanno for the effort of uniting the digital community after all these years.
I'd start with an invitation list to the old guys from Europe, some of them are not present anywhere, not sure if alive though.

Well, don't expect a flood - only 9 people were ejected over the 5 years. Which would include Howard Reihl and Dennis Klein. And yourself. Welcome back. 8-) YMMV

It's a new forum and a new opportunity. People won't be banned anymore at the discretion of just one person - so let's just let bygones be bygones and simply move forward. It will only be through a team effort that we can make this a place to come and enjoy our hobby.

Absolutely. But understand more than half of the past ejections were done under group pressure. :mrgreen: As someone pointed out on another forum, people will go where they feel most comfortable or safe. Something about tigers in the room was the analogy they made. I'll try to watch the growing pains from the side-lines. 8-)

Please don't stay on the sidelines - there's a lot of people that could use your technical know-how to keep their watches running! Keeping the posts constructive and friendly is key...

Sir, yes Sir !

Seriously, the adjustment hasn't been very hard for me since I voluntarily stepped down and sold this place, rather than being disposed. I come back [partly] because I've been coming here so long I actually worry about this place - and I don't even WEAR watches. Or any jewelry - skin sensitivity thing. At some point I will take an extended break and THEN, hopefully, come back and be a useful contributing member again.

Constructive & friendly is sometimes a problem since the Internet draws in a certain number of posers who don't know squat - which is irritating to those who actually do. :lol: There is nothing wrong with not knowing but bragging far beyond one's actual capabilities/reality is just plain boorish - the online equivalent of the "Napoleonic Complex" realized. Or maybe the Peter Principle? :-?

Maybe we should start a new topic for discussions about the past and problems some users had with Ed. Or even a separate subforum? There seems to be demand ;-)

Back to topic here:
I always used to enter DWF via a bookmarked link to "View unread posts". This does not work any more, I have to log in every time (positive effect: I won't forget my password any more). Happens with or without session ID in the URL. Of course "Keep logged in" is checked.

It´s getting annoying 4 days after the start of this forum??? Doesn´t seem to be a general problem here. Try to clear your cookies, the forum setting seems to be OK. BTW what browser do you use and which system?

Deleting cookies didn't help
Tried with IE8 and Chrome
As soon as I re-enter without session ID (or expired ID?), I have to login. Even though I marked this site as "trusted site" in IE.
Did work with old DWF.nu and still works with any other site I visit.

I´ve tried several things to make to top banner clickable. That´s not easy, because there´re quite a lot of buttons "over" the main image. Once I set a link, all other buttons will get the same link as the main header image.

Anyway, the make browsing easier, you now have a "HOME" button on the upper right of the header.

i was staring at the board main page and thinking...what is wrong here???

did Hanno change the server back to Dwf instead of this "way to long name" to type? :twisted: no
did he changed the led part back into differend boards for easy finding?...:no
did he want to give all the boards moderators a ledmodule for free for helping him? :-D : no :twisted:
did he post a naked pictures of his wife in the humor section? :O`~ : no

and suddenly i saw it...i saw a picture of my watch...my pulsar 901 calculator watch..in the banner :-D from now
i have to ask royalties M:)W:)M

great banner Hanno..love it. great work.

Wait a bit to see a Seiko E-Ink as well. I like a static banner, but hopefully the majority of users prefer the new one.
Thanks again to Abe for these great pictures. I even show an image of a Casio Data Bank: I once found a much earlier version of this watch, the Data Bank 50, when I´ve been in the Alps for skiing around 1983 or 84. It had a scratch from one of my skies. It fell on the floor in the mid 90s and I couldn´t bring it back to life. :cry:
