Yeah, I think there are some bugs to be worked out yet. Iíve seen a lot of funny things in everyoneís post, like </*> \ in the middle of sentences.

And I think some peoples names have been changed back their old ones.

But I have confidence in Danny and the rest. It will be all ok.

Wow, just checked my profile and itís way out of date. We may have lost some folks. I canít figure out how to get back in and fix it, Iím back to being a junior birdman again.

If I was tacky I would ask what happened to my blue thingy that was under my name that I paid for, but I wonít.

Cool

Well it is the dawn of the new age. Danny has moved on to the bigger better model and us old fa*rts who finaly got used to the old is just going to have to get used to this one too.
Rather like driving that new glass cockpit job. Only took a couple of continents to get the hang of the thing. Had a few glitches on the way just to spice things up but hey with this at least I am sitting on terra firma and as my old Jump Sergeant used to say the fimer it is the less the terror. Tried playing with the knobs and dials probably give a few /#'s and *)@'s but then hey whose perfect.
I am interested to see if my tag appears, after all my paypal $'s hopefully went towards this bad boy we are driving now.

All right I'm tacky, where did my blue thingy go

Uncle Danny said the thingys will re-appear in a week or so.
He has not had time to transfer the titles and colors and such.

In the meantime all ye folks, don't forget who the SKYGOD is.....

It just ate my reply! Apparently those funny symbols are the old codes for the smilies. I am still trying to work out the criteria for member status. I started the afternoon as "Senior member" but as soon as I posted something I became "Still just another number" I am quite happy to be still just another number and I'm in good company, I'm just puzzled about the criteria. I suppose it is just the "Whim" factor.

OK you inveterate JB rats, to get an answer to those questions, look at Uncle Danny's post http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthr...5&pagenumber=1 and all will be revealed.
And hey, as long as we don't lose this place, I personally couldn't give a flying f*ck about my post numbers, member status or lack of personal title.
I mean, we're here, arn't we?

now if the Suter-persona would have mysteriously decided to throw itself out with the moving boxes, that would make my day!

BP?
Me?
Oh dear, was I somewhat forceful?
Just trying to say that all those thingies do not really matter to me personally as long as I have PPRuNe to play with.


PS: Link works now

No, you weren't forceful Flaps, it was probably just that people aren't used to the new colour changing facility yet. I'm not bothered about my status, just curious about the reasons / criteria. I was just glad it let me log on this afternoon.

My regards to Mr. Flaps.

I think I have just worked it out. Everyone is a Senior Member until they make their first post using the updated PPRuNe when they return to being "Still just another number" Am I right Capt PPRuNe?

If I am going to test it, I might as well play here!

The problem with testing things is that you can never think of anything to say.

DX Wombat, you can change your "Just another number" designation by clicking on the "User CP" option at the top of the page, then selecting "Change Profile", and writing whatever you wish in the text box at the appropriate section.

Yes, things have come a long way, since the (very) early seventies.

Question

Question for the Towers:

Can this new-fangled software handle threads that go over 100 posts?

Sadly, so many interesting threads had to be locked at 100 with the old software....
